Famous Amos KKIA (KKFoodieVenture #71)

Since there isn’t much of a ‘foodieventure’ going on during my brief stay in KK, I’ve decided to find something interesting while roaming around the Kota Kinabalu International Airport area as I was making my way back to Tawau. No doubt there’s an abundant of food within the large KKIA compound but nothing caught my interest (probably due to the lack of budgeting during said time) until I made my way to the departure area and saw this place. Man, it’s been years since I’d last eaten them so I wasted no time in buying their Baked Brownies slice and Chocolate Fudge with White & Dark Chips soft cookie to go (note that I might got the names wrong here since I can’t seem to recall the lengthy names of said products). The goodies were good in quality as they’d managed to stay intact throughout my journey home. I’d expected the brownie to be moist while the cookie to be a bit hard by the looks of them but they both turned out to be the exact opposite of each other.

And here’s their rating…

Food – 3/5 (wish that they would dialled down their sugar content just a bit)
Price – 3/5 (still pretty reasonable considering our current economy)
Service – 3/5 (good despite only one person manning the kiosk at that time)
Décor – 4/5 (how can you not love the Famous Amos logo right?)
Location – 4/5 (they’re somewhere on level 2, within the domestic departure hall)

My Pretzels Imago (KK FoodieVenture #70)

Making a short stop to this light snack kiosk is a must for my partner as he really loves My Pretzels ever since he first laid his eyes and tried them out at their Warisan Square branch. Therefore, I have nothing much to add this time around so this review might be a bit shorter than usual. Just so you guys know, they’re located within the sea of food kiosks on the lower ground (LG) floor of Imago shopping mall. My partner had their Chocolate Stix Pretzels (again) and he loves them as always, since he really likes the thick chocolate ganache being generously spread all over the mini pretzels.

For ratings…

Food – 4/5 (the gooey chocolate ganache was just delicious)
Price – 3/5 (quite okay in my books)
Service – 3/5 (nothing to note since they pretty much picked up the pre-prepared snacks from their display case)
Décor – 3/5 (can be a bit confusing with other red coloured kiosks within said premise)
Location – 3/5 (it’s somewhere in the middle of the kiosk heaven)

Tako Tao Imago (KK FoodieVenture #69)

So while me and my partner were roaming around the food mecca on the lower ground (LG) floor of Imago shopping mall, a red coloured kiosk (within a sea of stands) had suddenly caught my eyes. I did mention before that I did not fancy takoyaki that much due to the fact that one of the main ingredients happens to be squids. But when I noticed that this particular kiosk provides a few other choices, I quickly made my way towards them and ordered some takoyakis for myself. Other than the usual variety, they also have prawn, unagi, abalone slice and chicken & cheese to choose from. So it was a no brainer for someone who doesn’t like eating seafood (like me) to pick out the latter as their ultimate choice. And you know what? It’s definitely delicious and scrumptious, with a bigger portioning that the ones that I’ve tried in Tawau.

Next we have…

Food – 4/5 (I’m giving them a thumbs up solely for their Chicken & Cheese flavour)
Price – 3/5 (a bit pricier than the ones back home but still worth it)
Service – 3/5 (the person manning the counter actually sighed when we wanted to order)
Décor – 4/5 (I like it a lot as they’re visible from afar)
Location – 3/5 (they’re also not that far off from Lucy's Kitchen)

DelightGO Meet & Chill (KK FoodieVenture #68)

It will not be a complete trip to KK for me if I did not make a pit stop at the ever popular Imago shopping mall at least once. It’s mainly due to the fact that it’s still considered brand spanking new (and I’m drawn to them like a moth to a flame) and there seems to be endless undiscovered food just popping up every time I went there. So it comes as no surprise that this new bakery cum café has entered my food hunting radar. For those of you entering the mall through the main entrance facing KK Times Square, the bakery is visible to your left.

Initially I just went past the place as I was entering the mall. I did give them a glance before moving on and not giving them a second thought afterwards. But as I was making my way out, the sweet smell of the baked goods as well as cakes eventually pulled me into the adorable looking place. Since my tummy was already at its max level by then, I’ve decided to take away some of their mille crepe cakes (which were prettily displayed next to the cashier). It was kind of obvious for me to take on their Chocolate Mille Crepe cake (which tasted very smooth and not to sweet, just the way I like it) but it was out-of-my-character to choose the Durian Mille Crepe cake as well since I did not like (or could not to be precise) eating durian that much (yup I know, it’s my loss). I guess I was attracted to the sweet smell and cute looking cake that I’d eventually found myself finishing them up at our hotel. And I must say that I like it a lot. They’d managed to blend the durian pulp (it is called a pulp?) into its layers nicely and the result was something not too overpowering especially with the durian involved and was evenly sweetened.

Moving on shall we…

Food – 4/5 (I’ll probably try their yummy looking buns the next time around)
Price – 3/5 (still pretty reasonable considering the place and all)
Service – 4/5 (very prompt and friendly – probably got something to do with it being newly opened)
Décor – 4/5 (I felt the cosiness of the lightly coloured eatery)
Location – 4/5 (it’s also right in front of the Upperstar Restaurant & Bar)





*Sorry for the unflattering picture as I was walking around other places with the cake in tow afterwards
