Thought of the day-“To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art.”-Francois De La Rochefoucauld

It is a cafe located on the roadside, not belonging to any of 5 star properties. We were here twice, this is our third visit. We’re here to break fast or to have our Iftar. Yes, we were invited but as most have known already, we are two stubborn writers. We do stick to our honest opinions and we write things, as we see it, not by what others have seen. This is Garage Kafe, a cafe that is increasingly becoming quite popular among diners in Kota Kinabalu city. Our break fast session at Garage Kafe was one of the best Sungkai in Ramadhan Month 2017.

Thought of the day-” Price is what you pay, value is what you get.”-Warren Buffet

We recently had our Iftar at Dreamtel Cafe, Dreamtel Kota Kinabalu. This hotel is located in the city center, next to Padang Bandaran. The buffet price is RM60 nett per adult and RM30 nett per child. We do think that the price is reasonable and we recommend this place for your next Iftar. Do note that the Ramadan Buffet Dinner is from 2 June 2017 to 18 June 2017 only, on weekends (Friday to Saturday). This week is their final week for the Ramadan Buffet Dinner therefore we do encourage you to start making reservations.
