Kantin Bakut @ Kg. Bakut, Miles 16 Jalan Tuaran


Kantin Bakut is a hidden gem at Telipok area, 20km north of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. The restaurant located next to Petronas Petrol Station at Kampung Bakut, along Jalan Tuaran.

There are villages / small industrial area which you will definitely pass by everytime heading north to Tuaran or Tamparuli, but never realised got such a popular restaurant - out of no where! Don't mad with me if you are living in Telipok or Tuaran and already frequent this place since years ago, I always stopped by at this petrol station, yet never realise this "kampung style" restaurant and the yummy seafood noodle and tomyam!

It was full house during our visit

Menu are all written on the board

Pick your noodle

There are few "kitchen" here, depends on which types of noodles.
For example, this kitchen in the photo specialised in tomyum only. The kitchen next to it cooks soup noodle, and another one cook "panmee".

The *new* INCH Coffee @ Perdana Park, Tanjung Aru


Coffee enthusiasts and cafe-goers were relieved (I did!) to hear INCH Coffee announced the new location at Perdana Park Tanjung Aru, last October. The specialty coffee shop was forced to move out from Tanjung Lipat Warehouse in August due to land acquisition, after merely one year in operation together with Centre for Arts & Design and other businesses.

Perdana Park is a recreation park at Kota Kinabalu, located just 5min walk from Tanjung Aru First Beach. The park features an artificial lake with musical fountain, jogging path and a row of shops. Perdana Park is a popular place for runners and families with kids, I found it very clean with all facilities are well kept by the park's management, not to mention the ample car parks with just RM1 per entry!

See this post for INCH Coffee's old look at Tanjung Lipat Warehouse.

So what's new at the relaunched INCH Coffee? Perhaps new view and interior, but similar vision/tagline: #bettercoffeekk; same minimalistic bar with a "world-champ" espresso machine - the Nuova Simonelli Aurelia II T3 and a slightly bigger slow bar for pourover coffee. Besides the espresso based coffee (such as Cappuccino, Latte, Vava Latte, Mocha, Coffee Shake...) and pourover black coffee, INCH Coffee has introduced the new caffeine-free beverages: Chai Latte, Babycino (Milk+Caramel) and Iced Red (Chai Tea with Borneo Honey).

Snack-wise, the cafe is offering a few types of cakes and waffle to pair with your coffee. A big shout to the waffle which comes with mixed fruits, ice cream and a drizzle of caramel, drooling! The waffle is so crunchy outside and moist inside to made it one of the best in town!
