The B Side @ Lido Plaza, Kota Kinabalu

After another long hiatus of posting due to my studies, finally I can take a breath and catch up with my postings! Initially, when I was back in Kota Kinabalu, my buddy has suggested me to visit The B Side cafe that serves artisanal coffee, gourmet pastries, and contemporary savouries that is certainly another hotspot for locals to enjoy.
 
Softshell Crab Pasta (RM 18.00)
 Their Softshell Crab Pasta is a must try! The pasta was lightly seasoned and topped off with a large portion of deep fried soft shell crab that was crunchy and chewy in every bite we had. The flavours were certainly fused well with the addition of crab roe and alfalfa sprout in between.

Eggs Benedict (RM 16.00)
 Although it was a dinner session, I opted to try their eggs Benedict in which they serve breakfast menu all day long. The poached egg was quite good, however the lack of seasoning and flavour does need a little push in it. For such price, I'm not sure if local KK'ians are ready to pay this price as what we have in KL (e.g. Antipodean, Coffea Coffee, etc) for breakfast.

Eggs Benedict (RM 16.00)

Gourmet Cakes & Pastries
 Aside from the main meals offered in the menu, they are also various pastries and truffles for you to choose from which are freshly prepared.

Chocolate Truffle Torte (RM 9.00)

Their chocolate truffle torte was simply divining that reminds me of a chocolate Nutella explosion in your mouth. Recommended!

Piccolo Latte (RM 8.00)
 Nothing is complete without trying their roasted coffee, their version of Piccolo Latte was quite average for us though.

Local Photographs
 Nice photographs of the local KK's scene.

The B Side @ Lido Plaza
Do head here earlier as patrons seems to occupy most of the time due to the lack of seating space. Our verdict? Worth a visit as KK is starting to move into this scene.

Address:

Lot 21, Ground Floor, 
Lido Plaza, Jalan Nosoob, 
Penampang.

Weekdays (Tuesday to Friday, closed every Monday) : 10am - 11pm 
Weekends (Saturday and Sunday): 9am - 12am

Nana's Green Tea @ The Gardens, Kuala Lumpur

Since plenty of people was raving about Nana's Green Tea that firstly open in The Gardens, we decided to try out this place for lunch. This artisan dessert place mostly infuses the green tea essence in their delights which was quite refreshing as the ones I tried in Osaka before. In addition, set lunches are offered everyday for a mere price of RM 20 that includes a main dish and a drink of your choice!

Chicken Cutlet Curry Set (RM 18.80)
An average chicken cutlet curry rice but the miso soup was quite refreshing.

Chicken Karaage Curry Don Set (RM 18.80)

Salmon Don Set (RM 18.80)
The sliced salmon presented in the Salmon Don was not so fresh when served to us.

Locomoco Hamburg Set (RM 18.80)
For the Locomoco Hamburd, the chicken patty flavour was heavily masked by the overly-generous portion of ketchup sauce on top!

Matcha Namacho Parfait (RM 19.80)
This parfait was certainly sweet and luscious with the infusion of Kanten jelly, cornflakes, vanilla & matcha ice cream, red bean, and chocolate matcha ganache that was extremely sweet. Portion wise, its enough for 2-3 person.

Cold Uji Green Tea & Matcha Latte
Their green tea series was certainly enriched with the bitter tea essence which may proved too bitter for some. But overall, still a good choice to order for the oriental tastebuds.

Hot Azuki Latte & Hoji Latte
The Azuki latte was mainly based on red bean flavours while the Hoji latte represents the Japanese version of coffee.

Nana's Green Tea @ The Gardens
Overall, a great place to visit if you are only up for artisan desserts and sweet delights. Do head early if you are going for lunch since the place tends to get fully packed in a fast manner.
