The Burger Bakar Borneo (KK FoodieVenture #36)

Yup, I’m on a roll people. Well, I might as well put out a few reviews at one go as my wifi could go off again at any moment. There’s somewhat a boom in the grilled burger business in KK since the last time we were there so we’d taken this opportunity to stopped by another ‘burger bakar’ joint and this time around, it’s the Burger Bakar Borneo restaurant at Alamesra commercial complex, which is near to the other entrance (called the Alamesra Plaza Utama – just found out about it through Google though). We’d actually come across them on a (very) rainy day and for the fact that we got lost (again) around the very confusing road at the Alamesra area. What can I say; it’s definitely an ‘adventure’ driving around that commercial area. Har har har

We’d decided to let the rain run its course and ordered ourselves some tasty looking grilled burgers. I’ve decided to take on their Alien Chicken Burger set while my partner ordered their Vintage Beef Burger set (the names might be different – can’t exactly recall what their names are). Both of us gave their grilled burgers two thumbs up for variety and for their pretty delicious taste. But if you’re not into burgers that much than rest assured as they also provide other types of Asian and Western dishes for you to try.

For ratings, I’m giving them… 

Food – 4/5 (you know what, I kinda like them)
Price – 3/5 (a bit on the pricey side but with a good quality of food)
Service – 3/5 (a bit on the lazy side but hey, at least we got our burgers… eventually)
Décor – 4/5 (pretty appealing to the eyes, I must say)

Location – 3/5 (it’s near to the far end entrance of the Alamesra complex)

Deli Corner (KK FoodieVenture #35)

Another must-visit place when you’re within the Promenade Hotel KK is their Deli Corner, which sat nicely beside their lobby lounge on the ground floor. The deli corner specializes in the hotel’s production of lovely looking cakes, pastries and even cookies. It’s also located next to the staircase leading down to the basement parkings so you can’t possibly resist them (especially for a cake lover like yours truly). I’ve tried out a bunch of cakes and pastries while staying there but the most memorable one has got to be their Enclair, as it’s my first time trying one and it’s just as delicious as I’ve expected it to be. The cream filling was a very nice balance of sweetness and it’s just a yummy treat to have. What is more impressive was their 30% off all cakes and pastries after 6pm daily promo (which also applies to their Tawau branch). It’s such a good bargain that outside patrons (people that did not actually stayed at the hotel) willingly waited patiently for the 6pm promo just to get their hands on the delicious goodies.

For giving me such a lovely treat, I’m giving them…

Food – 4/5 (impressively very tasty)
Price – 4/5 (I hope they still have the 30% off promo even with the current GST)
Service – 4/5 (staff was very prompt at this counter)
Décor – 3/5 (pretty simple station, nothing to talk about)
Location – 4/5 (it’s visible on your left if you entered from the main entrance)

Cafe Promenade (KK FoodieVenture #34)

Sorry for being absent for a while as I’m having difficulties with my wifi at the moment. But I’ll try my best not to disappoint you guys okay. So here’s another review that I’ve actually forgotten about before. I was suppose to post this right after the Promenade Hotel review (as this was related to that) but hey, better late than never right? Now as far as I know, if you’re staying at the hotel, then you’re most probably treated with free breakfast. So where else can you get their delicious spread of breakfast than their Café Promenade, on the ground floor, right next to the hotel’s main lobby. The food spread was pretty big, obviously enough to cater for hungry patrons during the mornings but what they lacked was probably the variety of food. We were there for 3 days and the main course (the Nasi Lemak) was the same throughout our stay. But since I’m a huge fan of Nasi Lemak, it’s not exactly a problem for me. There are also other typical breakfast items such as cereals, breads, sausages and even special salad bars as well as pastries. My only disappointment was when I discovered that me and my partner were practically ‘invisible’ to the eyes of the waiters there, especially when requesting for some tea. They constantly passes us by while busy chatting up to obviously foreign tourists at the next table. Again, this double standard in serving has got to stop no matter where you are. We might be local tourists, but we’re still paying customers just like other tourists.

So all in all I’m giving them…

Food – 4/5 (will be better with more variety)
Price – 4/5 (not sure since we got ours for free)
Service – 3/5 (yes, I’m having a bit of a problem with the restaurant’s staff)
Décor – 3/5 (pretty standard hotel design, but with great view of the pool though)

Location – 4/5 (it’s on your right if you entered from the main entrance)
