The new row of shops in Stapok that completed last year and in few months time, few coffee shops have opened. And soon, everyone followed suit and the whole row of shops are filled up with coffee shops.
I pass by the place every day as Jamie's kindergarden is along the way. However I had never been to any of the coffee shops till last Thursday.
It was late in the morning so basically a very late breakfast or early lunch with my girlfriend. I whatsapp-ed my friend to meet me there the day before and we both agreed on the venue, Borneo One Street Corner (where BBQ King Seafood is located).
I were early so I ordered a warm honey lemon (RM2) for myself while waiting for my girlfriend who is staying nearby. Somehow 5 minutes have passed by and I called my friend asking about her whereabout. She was still at home! Waiting for me! She thought I were to pick her up. Turned out she misunderstood my message; I told her to meet me there. In the end, she did turned up in less than 4 minutes later. Lol.
She recommended few food stalls like the China ramen, laksa, kolo mee. Actually this Borneo One Street is next to River Park Food Court with seating area in between them. And good news is you could order food from both sides of the shops.
We had this crispy and nice yam and sweet potato fritters (RM5) from the fritter stall (next to Dim sum stall) in Borneo One Street. Of course I tried not to eat too many of them as my throat was still delicate.
My friend had Sarawak laksa too from Borneo One Street but I did not take photo of her food. I were lamenting to her that I were unable to taste it but it would be for another day when I would be fully recovered. So, what I had instead??
Another recommendation from my friend. The fish meat mihun soup from River Park Food Court! RM7.50 for this big bowl. Trust me when I said the bowl was huge! Option of milk broth or clear broth, and I went for the latter one. Love the sweet, tangy and slightly spicy broth.
More stalls open at night. Must bring my family here to try some of the stalls. Quite a lof of choice here.
