Kak Nong Restaurant: Fried Prawn with Salted Egg Yolk Sauce

Kak Nong Restaurant harbour city

Somebody was craving to have a taste of her favourite Fried Prawn with Salted Egg Yolk Sauce – so I obliged her.  It has been quite a while since I last had a meal at Kak Nong’s, a local multi-award winning restaurant.

Situated about a minute away from Sutera Harbour Resort and Kota Kinabalu city centre, it is a favourite among locals who appreciate high quality food at a reasonable price.

Though there were quite a lot of choices on the menu, I just picked Rendang Daging (beef rendang) with rice (RM8.50), probably because the world cup season and the Malaysian Super League have made me crave for some meaty, beefy, man-ly, cuisine – hooray!

Plus, I  miss it…

Kak Nong’s Cendol

First to arrive were our Cendol Susu (RM4.00).  Somehow, we both ordered for the same thing. 

But our opinion totally differed – I thought it was fine, she thought it’s not sweet enough (she said ‘tawar’, actually). 

She preferred more gula Melaka – a professed sweet-tooth who claims she has it under tight reins, hmph!

The Fried Prawn with Salted Egg Yolk Sauce

The portion of both dishes are okay, enough to share among us.  The Fried Prawn with Salted Egg Yolk Sauce is Kak Nong’s special recipe which we can’t find anywhere else in KK. 

The price is quite hefty RM15.00, with rice.  We were glad to note that it maintained its delicious taste though the prawns looked smaller than the last time we ate there (then again, we could be dreaming …).  But never mind, it was still tasty and the slices of chillies provided were fiery enough to make our noses runny.

It’s a nicely prepared dish, if you don’t like it hot, just skip the chillies.

Kak Nong’s Rendang

As for the beef rendang … it was red.  I was expecting a brownish rendang, with kerisik and all – but this was the rendang that I had:

Maybe it’s a different version of rendang.  But the meat was tender and it was quite spicy – so it was fine with me.

Kak Nong’s also sell pastry such as

  • chicken mushroom bun
  • buttermilk bun
  • peanut bun
  • puddings
  • local kuih, and
  • puddings.

Anyway, Puasa is coming in about 3 days’ time, and I look forward to strolling along the Bazaar Ramadhan stalls where Cendol will be sold in abundance, for sure.
