STARBUCKS COFFEE@1 BORNEO, KOTA KINABALU (INVITED REVIEW)

Chocolate Tuxedo Cake
When we crave for good coffee, Starbucks Coffee is always the one place I had in mind. Compliment their finest coffee with their all day part food available in many varieties. I was lucky enough to be invited to their food review event in Starbucks Coffee @ 1 Borneo, KK to sample some of their improved and mouth watering delicacies that is guaranteed to tickle your taste buds! So get ready Sabahans!

Chocolate Tuxedo Cake (RM 10.90)
This smooth cake is a winner with its visually attractive top of mirror chocolate ganache, and its unique centre of chocolate biscuit paired with white chocolate mousse. It tasted good and just the right portion for a delightful tea break.

Tuna Toastie (RM 7.50)
If you are in need of some light breakfast or snack, their Tuna Toastie is a simple dish that consists of  tasty topping of creamy tuna filling, fresh chillies and grated cheese spread on b├ęchamel sauce on top of herb infused foccacia bread.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin

The muffin is moist with flavorful banana taste profile accented by rich bittersweet chocolate chip. I always loved ordering this muffin apart from their apple muffins as it tasted delicious.


Toffee Walnut Cinnamon Roll (RM6.50)

The perfect bakery to welcome this season of Christmas, a delicious bread roll layered with cinnamon topped with sticky toffee and roasted walnuts that is a good addition on your sweet list this festive season!


Chicken & Mushroom Gourmet Pie (RM 13.90)

A simple gourmet pie that tasted great in which morsels of chicken and mushrooms come together in a creamy and rich sauce enveloped in generous puff pastry.


Beef & Potato Gourmet Pie (RM 13.90)

Another great pie that gives a authentic beefy taste which consists of minced beef and potato chunks come together in a rich brown sauce enveloped in generous puff pastry.


Red Velvet Cake

This cake was a definitely showstealer that day with its glaring redness seducing you to bite it! This eye catching crimson dessert blends well with the cream cheese, giving it a rich and fulfilling sweet indulgence.


Marble Cheesecake (RM 10.90)

A mixture of premium cheese and finest quality chocolate creates the beautiful marbling effect of this cake. Besides aesthetically pleasing, its balanced taste profile also makes a favourite choice among Starbucks customers.


Curry Chicken Gourmet Pie
Finally, some yummy tasting curry chicken pie for those who wants some spicy flavours. It is a spicy chicken and potato combined with Asian curry and spices in a generous puff pastry.

Great food!

Friendly Starbucks Staff @ 1 Borneo
Overall, we had a great time with their all day part food servings and their friendly staff for welcoming us. Definitely someting more improved for the Sabahans who needs better snacks to compliment their coffee.
