My verdict

I like the ambience of the cafe with few instagrammable sections. Personally, I love the Mac and Cheese and it tastes different than the rest. If you are a fan of salted egg, then you should give this one a try.

The Monte Cristo sandwich is really good. At first, you might think that strawberry jam does not go well with ham and cheese, but if you dare to challenge your tastebud, then you should try it. As for the pizza, I love the thin crust and the taste of the lamb with korean sauce.

The cafe is clean and service by the staffs were totally great.

Hint: They will continue adding few recipes and introduce oriental food in their menu. So watch out people.

There are few places that you can get Tomyam noodle soup in Kota Kinabalu, and one of it is located in Hilltop (Kedai Kopi Janggut). Out of curiosity and recommendation from circle of friends, we went to that place and try the food ourselves.

 

The place usually packed in the morning, so you should consider to come early. It is known as “Janggut” because the owner has beard.

 

Here are some of Kedai Kopi Janggut’s menu.

Delicious Tom Yum soup with fresh fish
Fried noodle with prawn. Good for two
Crispy fried Fu Chuk (dry beancurd)
Fish with Tausi – One of the signature dishes
Look at that food. Perfect combination to keep you full whole day long
Left to Right: Iced chinese tea, soursop ice blended and calamansi juice. I really love the soursop juice.

My verdict

Food were nice, I love the taste of the Tom Yam soup and their signature fried noodle. The soursop juice is something that you should try.

 

Cleanliness of the restaurant is just fine but the service was quite slow. We asked for menu from one of the workers but we had to wait like ages. Ended up asking the boss to take order and all menu were based on the photos from her tablet (and no pricelist). Mind you that fork and spoon and condiments are all self-service.

 

Suggestion: to create menu set including price so people can easily order.

My verdict

The place is easy to spot as it is right in the middle of the city, to be precise, just next to promonade hotel, Kota Kinabalu.

Price wise, I can see it is affordable but it depends on the quantity and types of food that you ordered.

If you are allow to drink alcohol, then you should try their signature happy juice drink.

So last week, I’ve blogged about this application that I’ve been using to purchase few stuffs and even movie tickets – Boost application. Well, been using it for few times and so far Ive been rewarded (Boost application cashback) for few ringgit (RM) which I guess a bonus for me and everyone.

Pay and and Get rewarded

Yes, that is the term I will use and I bet boost app will approve me to use that word too. Good news to all boost app’s users, boost is currently running cashback and giveaways campaign until 04th of November 2018. All you have to do is to keep boosting by spending minimum RM20 every week and lucky 3,000 users will be selected every week to receive cashback of up to RM150 each. Simple is not it?

However, campaign is not valid for transaction such as Bill payments, Prepaid Top-ups, Parking Payments, Purchase of Vouchers and Donations.

Did I win any?

One question that I people will ask me since I’ve been promoting this application. The answer to that question is simply – Yes.

I guess today, I’ve been blessed by the mother earth that I received RM150 from Boost app and I did not expect it, to be honest. Big thanks to Boost app.

Sabah Food Directory – Guide to travellers and local, a thing that I always wanted to do since I love to eat. Yeah, I have been watching my carbs intake for years now but failed to archive my yearly new year’s resolution. Don’t blame me, I just could not resist variety of good food that Sabah has to offer.

This small project might be useful for visitors coming to Sabah and also to the locals as well (I’m pretty sure that most of the locals are unaware of good food around them – Happens a lot to me as well). Rather than just posting collection of photos in each of a blog post, I will add my honest comments about food that I reviewed.

I believe that in few years time, Sabah will have more to offer than now. During the time of this blog post is written, Domino’s pizza has expand its wing to East Malaysia. Which also means, more international brands are coming to Sabah. Now, I’m waiting for Jolibee (I always hear people in Manila mentioned about how good it is) to open its branch here in Sabah.

Anyway, you can read some of the review of foods and restaurants from my previous posts, which then I will compile to a small section of Food Directory in Sabah. Stay tuned and waiting for some comments about things to include in my Sabah Food Directory Blog Post. If you have suggestion about which restaurant that you wanted me to review, feel free to drop a comment below.

Oh, one more thing, please refer to Celiac Asia‘s website and refer an expert from that site regarding to Celiac Food Directory in Sabah. It might be useful for people who suffer from Celiac and I do not guarantee that most of the food reviewed in my blog is Gluten Free.
