Handmade Story Cafe @ Damai Point, KK

I love cafe. I love coffee.

I have a dream that KK is becoming a place like Bangkok, Taipei or Sydney, cities that impressed me the most, personally, in their quality of coffee and cafes. However, let's face the fact that cafe is never our culture, Kopitiam yes. That's why Old Town and other copycats is catching up the numbers of  Starbucks Coffee or CBTL in recent years, people prefer to spend time chatting loudly about their personal issues like no strangers around them in the expense of few Ringgit.

I found out this cafe from someone's FB status, I couldn't recall. Handmade Story Cafe is just open merely 2 weeks ago at Damai Point, just behind Yoyo Cafe and the opening-soon Zen-Q Cafe. Its hiding inside the commercial area so do try to look for the wooden signboard of "Homemade Story".

Formerly known as La Fetta in Lintas Station (read my blog entry HERE if you can read Chinese), Handmade Story Cafe inherits the tasty beverage with a big upgrade (I supposed? Because the menu is totally different now!). This cafe is co-owned by a few friends, all young and ambitious: can you believe that all dining tables in the cafe was built by them using recycled woods!

Interior: They are selling some art items too~

This is the special one! Kung Pao Pizza (from the idea of Kung Pao Chicken)

They offer a few types of sodas, this is one of them...

Here another 2 sodas, I can only remember
Cucumber Plum Soda (M I rite?)


They brew from illy Coffee!

Tomyam Pasta - Spicy!

Seafood Risotto - its so cheesy I finished it all in just a few minutes!

Prawn, yum yum~~

Curry Noodle - my friend from North Peninsular said
the flavour is not as thick as her kampong's.... XD

Kung Pao Chicken Pizza - Very creative fusion!

Very cheesy, that's why I liked it! The pizza base sauce is made from a blend
of dried chilli and garlic, that's where the name comes from^^

Green Tea Cheesecake

Me and the co-owner, Joanne

(Cleverly mix of ingredients; wish to see more choice for the mains & finger food in the future)

Wasabi Sushi & Bar @ Hilltop, KK

Japanese food lover at Kota Kinabalu now got a new option to dine. Just opened early this year, Wasabi Sushi & Bar location is easily seen when you pass by Hilltop. Parking is not a problem in the evening, there are ample of street parking around that area. I was surprise by the beautiful Japanese-style landscape decorated outside the restaurant, which is really great.

Chilli Vanilla @ Kota Kinabalu

Ahhh~ I didn't know that Chilli Vanilla is actually a Hungarian Restaurant until I saw others' review!
Centrally located in the heart of Kota Kinabalu (5 min walking distance to Gaya Street  / opposite Kinabalu Emporium and Merdeka Square), this restaurant offers some Mediterranean food all influenced by their chef/co-owner who is a Hungarian.


Lemon Tea (RM4.50)


Many types of desserts!

Hungarian Goulash, or stew beef with bread (RM14.90). This is no ordinary stew, its spicy, really good meat balanced with equally good potatoes which make the thick broth. You might ask if this is our kari daging? Eh? It not!

Food long chicken sausage with mashed potato (RM22.90). You won't get it wrong as sausage is always the safest choice if you don't know what to order in a Mediterranean restaurant.

1 Meter Long Cake, few centimeters when served (RM8)

FOODIOT'S POINT: 83% (The rarely-found exotic gastronomy experience in KK!)

Moos 89 Ice Cream @ City Mall, KK

Tried this ice cream stall at City Mall. I don't think they are any branch or franchise of others, and they said they fresh ingredient to make the ice cream.

I can see they use freshly squeeze milk instead of expired-taste UHT...

Kidding. I believe Moos 89 are mentioning the berries, mango, banana and other kind of ingredient  to give the richness of the ice cream.

Jackfruit ice cream also available!
You can add what ever you want to the ice cream, of course they are not free!
Chocolate Banana Ice Cream

Let's try!
