I spent pretty much a lot of time at Old Town White Coffee during our stay in Kota Kinabalu, be it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, or to meet up with my friends.

It features mainly this type of kopi tiam that originated from Ipoh, Malaysia. Basically it's called White Coffee because the method used to roast the coffee beans that infuses modern practices and traditional methods.

As for this particular branch of Old Town White Coffee, The place is located within the strip of restaurants at the side where the condominiums are being build. It's quite cozy if you ask me, and there's a smoking area within the strip that's air-conditioned. It's quite disturbing though how the that smoking ground vibrates when a truck passes by. OTWC in 1Borneo also offers free WIFI of their own.

We tried different kinds of food and drinks here. The best one has to be the Nasi Rendang, which I ordered a number of times. Nasi Lemak is my favorite Malaysian food but OTWC's version is just so-so. I've tasted better Nasi Lemak elsewhere.

Another good find here is the Prawn Mee. It's a curry and coconut based noodle soup that's quite similar to Laksa. Their Asam Laksa on the other hand, I didn't like at all.

Of course what would be a review of a coffee shop without talking about their coffee. OTWC's White Coffee is at best like a 3-in-1 coffee. It's quite sweet, so there's no need to add sugar. The Kaya toast is the best (both the traditional one and the thick toast Kaya). Their curry puffs are forgettable, while their blueberry ice cream is heaven.
