The indomitable and irascible Travelling Gourmet goes to a huge island called Borneo to experience…

MAGNIFICENT Shangri-La in Dalit Bay near Tuaran…To say the Rasa Ria Resort is outstanding would be an understatement! Set in 400 acres with a pristine 3km long beach this resort is for those who love the sun, the sea, the sand, sunbathing, swimming and seasports. The rooms and the suites are really luxuriously comfortable and reminded me of Hawaii and Bali. Certain things not only rival Hawaiian resorts BUT surpass them!


Nice as NAAN!

MY friends and relatives were not suprised that NAAN just won the Sabah Tourism BEST Restaurant Award just 2 days ago on 2 December, 2017. Superb food and ambience with really soothing Indian background music make your dining experience memorable and exciting. Little touches delight like a sparkly ‘BIndi” to stick on the forehead of lady diners, and the present of bangles at the end of the meal make this a hot favourite with the ladies! Alas nothing for the gentlemen but good food. As Ialways say when you see the beautiful ladies being very happy…it makes you happy too! Aber Natuerlich! The hot and spicy Lobster Curry is also outstanding, as is the Green Spinach Curry with Paneer Cheese cubes. I loved ALL the dishes I was served! Of course you MUST have the NAAN bread wahahahah! YUmmie! Michael Lim The Travelling Gourmet is a celebrated Travel, Food and Wine Writer/Editor who adores good food and wines! 🙂
