Chef Daniele Rossetto’s culinary journey reads like love poetry. His passion for Italian cuisine derived from the simplicity and creative flair, inspired by two most influential people in his life; his grandfather and his mother. It is no surprise, that two of his favourite dishes would be his grandfather’s fish soup and risotto prepared by his mother.

Thought of the day-” To become successful and outstanding at something, we don’t have to come up with something new; we need only find ways of doing it better.”- Earl Nightingale

Weeks ago, we read about Alif Satar opening up a new Cafe in Kota Kinabalu. We did discuss about the possibility of visiting. We did not go, until recently. We searched high and low for some information about A’S Cafe. With minimum information, we contacted Mukhriz (the Manager) and told him that we’re coming. We’re about to visit a cafe that we know very little about. We initially did not have any expectation or even ably to imagine the outcome. Nothing. We went and this is how we saw and experienced things at A’S Cafe.

Thought of the day-“What makes things memorable is that they are meaningful, significant and colorful.”-Joshua Foer

It’s not one particular restaurant that is mega in size. Here, size does not matter and so is the food quantity. What matter most is the overall quality of food that are presented on the buffet spread. For them, it’s all about Food that are Thoughtfully Sourced and Carefully Served. We wrote this article based on the thoughts of consumers and not writers. That one particular evening, we became that genuine diners, observing and tasting great foods that were served for Buka Puasa/Iftar diners at Tanjung Ria Kitchen, Hyatt Regency Kinabalu. It’s one memorable Iftar mainly because we were able to taste the real flavors in the food that we ate. The great dining experience was about that concoction of Food Quality and Dining Satisfaction.
