Biru-Biru Cafe and Bar @ Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

SERVE NO PORK | CAFE | 8AM - 11PM | JALAN DEWAN, KK

Sharikat Biru-Biru, as crafted on the signboard above the entrance, is the new cafe tookover the old and famous Borneo 1945 Museum Cafe occupying the space below Borneo Backpacker. Biru-Biru, loosely translated as "Blue Blue", could be the color of sky and sea, as well as reflecting some kind of emotional states which the cafe's owner trying to portray (Foodiotkk: Did I think too much?)... Anyway, I love to hang around this part of KK despite heavy traffic and difficult to get parking during office hour; it is however, transforms to a quiet area during off hours and weekends -- Jalan Dewan is the home to many backpackers and boutique hotels, similarly to the adjacent Gaya Street! Without the busy traffic, Jalan Dewan is the most ideal place to start the morning with for travellers.

BigFish

Root Beer Float (RM5.90)
Root Beer = A&W Softdrink and not the real "beer", ladies and gentlemen :P
And double thumbs up for the coconut ice cream, same goes to the waffles which will appear later 

Lemongrass and Ginger Cooler (RM6.90)
I simply cannot resist anything related to lemongrass and this is definitely one of the best cooler here at Biru-Biru Cafe!
I'd tried the Watermelon Mint Cooler too~

Battered Fish Tacos with Garlic Sauce, Tomato Tuhau Salsa (YES THEY SERVE TUHAU!!!) and Cheddar (RM16.90)
The fish is tiny but overall taste was good... Really good with tuhau if you like it.
I mean, it's completely ok if you don't like tuhau XD

Biru-Biru Cafe serves fusion food

Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Garlic Sauce, Pumpkin, Cheese and French Fries (RM11.90)
Good as a light food. Should have consider to give the bread an upgrade to wholemeal and slightly thicker to retain the moisture of the bread :)

Friendly (and funny) cafe staff here :D

Waffle with Coconut Ice Cream and Gula Melaka (Palm Sugar) (RM10.90)
This is a killer-dish! DON'T LEAVE THE CAFE WITHOUT HAVING THIS!

Jalan Dewan is named after the DBKK Multipurpose Hall at the end of the road, it is adjacent to Jalan KK-bypass and Jalan Gaya. Look for Borneo Backpacker on any map or just ask people where "Australia Place" is and you should be able to find Biru-Biru Cafe and Bar. Serve no pork, but alcoholic drinks is available here throughout the day (you know bah, lihing!)

Feng Yuan Dim Sum @ 88 Marketplace, KK

NON-HALAL | DIM SUM | 88 MARKETPLACE | 7.30AM - 2.00PM

Craving for Dim Sum one weekend, so we visited the Feng Yuan Dim Sum (丰源美食楼) at 88 Marketplace, KK. This non-halal outlet are among the latest addition to Dim Sum restaurant in Kota Kinabalu. Another newly opened Dim Sum restaurant is the Dim Sum Recipe (点心之家) at Lintas Plaza, which I will update soon.

For Muslim friends who are seeing this, don't be disappointed because KK do have some Halal Dim Sum outlets namely Dynasty Restaurant at Promenade Hotel KK and Asian Restaurant at The Horizon Hotel. The famous Fu Yuan Kopitiam, although yet to regain their Halal Certificate, are still "serve no pork" and offering some simple "Sao Mai" (Chicken Dumpling) and "Fu Zhok" (Fish Paste Wrapped in Tofu Skin) as usual.

Full House!
