ShopeeFood Empowering Local Sabah Merchants to be Part of the Digital Economy

SABAH – ShopeeFood aims to continuously empower local businesses in Sabah by enabling local merchants to adopt digitalization. The mobile app also offers customers a seamless experience using ShopeePay when ordering meals with ShopeeFood, and bringing value via promotions and special deals. In conjunction with the 65th Merdeka celebration and Malaysia Day, come celebrate with ShopeeFood as we feature an inspiring story of SMOKIES.

Passion for Food

Clement Chin, 58, born in Sandakan currently residing in Kota Kinabalu, operates SMOKIES with his children. He started the F&B business in October last year as he wanted to build a long-term plan for the future, especially for his children. They are passionate about food and enjoy cooking too.

Chin saw the opportunity of starting something unique, which is smoking meats, western style. It is rare in Sabah mainly due to the long hours of the cooking process, custom-making of the smoker machines and manpower.

“We designed and fabricated our own huge firewood smoker station so we could make sure the meat is tender, smoky, and juicy. We serve all kinds of meat and fish except pork, so our Muslim friends can enjoy the unique flavours too,” quipped Chin, who is also a registered Civil Engineer.

SMOKIES Going Digital

SMOKIES joined ShopeeFood and ShopeePay in July this year to provide the best services and convenience to its customers. “By going digital with ShopeeFood and ShopeePay, we observed that more customers are aware about SMOKIES. We believe in keeping up with the trend and offering the right platform to our customers. Better services to your customers translate to higher growth and income. Why not embrace the idea of going digital? It is the way forward,” said Chin on a positive note.


Since joining ShopeeFood, Clement notes positive growth for his business. His customers enjoy not only mouth-watering dishes but also food made with natural ingredients and zero waste as SMOKIES currently uses their own unique smoking methods. 

“Some of our customers have given positive feedback, such as it was the best dish they have ever eaten. This kind of complement is important to us as we want to serve something worthwhile to our customers,” said Chin happily. When asked about his customers favourite orders, Clement shared his three best-sellers:

SMOKIES Smoked Beef Cheek

Smoked at a low temperature, the meat is cooked for long hours using their custom-made firewood smoker station to ensure the meat is tender, juicy and melts in your mouth.

SMOKIES Premium Chicken Meatballs

Made from 100% chicken meat and some spices, the meat is tender, moist, and not overpowering with spices. They are served with their very own Smoky Gravy produced from chicken bones, where all the smoky flavours and nutrients come alive.

SMOKIES Mashed Potatoes

With their own unique or rather secret techniques, it is made from 100% pure fresh potatoes, butter, milk, and spices. It is silky, buttery, and smooth in texture. Paired with their signature smoky gravy, it is also served as part of their main meals, including with their SMOKIES Smoked Chicken Satay and Rendang
