[PREVIEW] Check-In Dining @ 88 Marketplace, Kota Kinabalu

SERVE NO PORK | 11AM - 11PM | WESTERN FOOD | 088-221152

Can you believe it?!!! Sabah is going to have THE FIRST AVIATION-THEMED restaurant right here at 88 Marketplace, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah! Check out the picture below:

How cool was that?

Check-In Dining is officially open on the 19 July 2014 (Saturday) afternoon. Thanks to my friend, Jessy and Sean (the owner), we - Food Blogger Ken (from, Travel Blogger Chloe (, Aldrich (Chloe's *ahem*), BigFish and myself, got a chance to sample their food right before the restaurant open for business.

Some called this the "Animal Trial" (eg. a lab mice's experiment) but who cares? We foodiot / foodie love to try out new food and don't mind to risk ourselves for gainining some weight!

Check-In Dining is serving Western Food and a bit of Oriental Cooking (yet to finalize though...). Imagine the menu at Upperstar and Farrari.

Sean believes in affordable eating, he said. He makes sure the price of everything on the menu is reasonable so that people can walk in and enjoy the food.

Because this was just my first experience at the Check-In Dining, I would like to keep some untold stories (included Writer+Travel Blogger Chloe's secret) in my next blog.

the environment was great but I almost ate a snail when I ordered their salad.

Called for the person in charge during that time. his response was:

" sorry sir, this is not the first time we encountered this, our vegetables are fresh from from the farm"

so I was wondering, would it be that if this ain't their first time that someone has encountered a snail in their salad they want to do the same mistake over and over again.? so does this mean that vegetables fresh from the farm don't need to be cleaned up?

anyway, I do believe they will improve, cause from the way I see it the restaurant has potential. Keep up the good work. Just a friendly reminder, you don't want the same mistake to happen.. Cheers!!
