Travel along Jalan Sulaiman highway, after some 20 to 30 minutes from Kota Kinablau City, one is going to pass by Salut seafood restaurant. Since it is quite out of the way for us kklites, this seafood restaurant is like a hidden gem. The price of seafood here is much cheaper compare with the other big seafood restaurants in the city.

look out for these Giant Clams

With these giant clams lining up the entrance of Salut Seafood Restuarant, surely this is good Feng Shui. Good Feng Shui equals Good fortune, an ancients Chinese’s believe. Here the good fortune is translated into real life too, as Salut Seafood Restaurant has grown from a small outpost restaurant with some 20 tables to about 100 tables restaurant now. Yet it still maintains the simple out look of it humble begining, hence the continue of the cheaper price.

look out for this signboard

steamed fresh prawns

Steamed fresh prawns is a simple recipe, have the prawns steamed fresh, and when the prawns are cooked, just serve them plain. Another delicious prawns dish is called butter prawns, yes… just prawns cook with butter. Note: there are two versions, dry butter prawns and wet butter prawns. Here 1kg of cooked prawns price range from RM 45 to RM 50.

deep fried crab

Very tasty, one can even eat the crab outer layer body, it is very crunchy. One must eat them immediately when the crabs are served, wait too long the crunchy bite would have gone. 1 kg is about RM 50.

mushrooms with mixed vegetables

Mixed them all up! Different variety of mushroom and vegetables, this play up to a very colourful dish.

kang kong balacan

Kang Kong is a local vegetable. Some time one can see Kang Kong grows on the river side too.

    Salut restoran is one of the best seafood restaurant i’ve ever been to. But the only thing bad about the place is the PRICE….

    total dissapointment going to Salut last Friday (22nd)…3 of us ordered :
    1) Kam Heong Elephant trunk clam which turn out to be curry elephant trunk clam(earlier they cooked in different style which is not kam heong and i returned the dish to the kitchen…the 2nd time it came out as curry)
    2) thai style fish turned out to be normal steam fish – we did not touch the fish at all.
    3) mushroon with mixed vege – very salty
    4) steam fresh prawns – moderate only. the only edible dish for the night.
    the lady boss even had the guts to say that in Sabah, kam heong is actually curry style!!! hmmm….i was having kam heong elephant trunk at New Gaya Seafood restaurant and they served kam heong…not curry!!!!
