Newspaper Cafe & Bistro @ Jalan Bundusan, Kota Kinabalu


Newspaper Cafe & Bistro is the latest eatery opened along Jalan Bundusan, Kota Kinabalu here.

Located at Grand Industrial Centre (near the famous Wan Wan Kopitiam), the Newspaper Cafe run by a group of young chefs who returned to homeland after spending years working abroad at Singapore. They offers western food such as steak and burger, some casual Japanese food like the hotstone rice, and fusion in between! I liked the interior of this cafe, which offers something different than many restaurants in KK: they hand-drawn the decoration. Probably you managed to find one or two childhood cartoon on the wall!

Indoor zone

FREE BEER?!!! Kidding or not? Let's take a closer look....

Mystery resolved!




Newspaper Burger (RM17.90)
Homemade burger with sauted onion, lettuce, tomato served with mix salad
with miso dressing, macaroni cheese and fries. The patty tasted excellent, but
only too greasy maybe due to the addition of corn flour or the beef too fat!

The top bread is stuffed with fried egg, its so eye-catching and creative!

Yakiniku Beef Hotstone (RM11.90)
The Japanese side of menu...

Quite nice!

Carrot Milk (RM4.90)
Same price for other juices!

Newspaper Fish & Chips (RM14.90)
Fried fish fillet served with freis and mix salad with miso dressing and
tartar sauce. Their tartar sauce tasted different than others, maybe using
own homemade recipe...

Very nice fish & chips!

Newspaper Cabonara (RM14.90)
Highly recommended if you visit here! Unlike the ordinary white cream
base, which is the American-recipe, this cabonara is egg yolks base
with addition of cream to make it even juicier. Want to know more
about this cabonara? They use turkey ham instead of chicken or sandwich
ham! Turkey ham has better texture and tastier which you can't get
with chicken's.

The owner of this restaurant is also a distributor for air conditioner for the past 10 years. So please bring your jacket along with you as the aircond here is really cold!!!

(Very good environment, plenty of street parking space in the evening, tasty food!)

I saw this place in the KK Food Fest booklet. Now I'm even more tempted to try after seeing your post. I'll definitely order the beef Yakiniku (I love BEEF!) The carbonara looks pretty good too, judging the looks of it through your photo, the cream seems very thick and yummilicious.
