Roti Kahwin at Fook Yuen Damai
Fook Yuen actually needs little introduction to KK-siders but if you’re a visitor, this is the place to go to give in to your bread cravings. Arguably the most popular tea-time snack in Kota Kinabalu, Fook Yuen Damai does Roti Kahwin the best. Similar to Singapore’s Kaya Toast, Roti Kahwin (marriage bread) is a sandwich with a centimeter-thick sheet of butter and coconut jam spread in between two slices of bread. It can be eaten toasted or untoasted, though the toasted version is called Roti Panggang.
Contributing to Fook Yuen’s success (they now have 4 branches) are the quality of their drinks. They make it a point to keep their glasses steaming hot as to avoid the contents cooling before you get to drink it. Try some local pulled tea called Teh Tarik with your soft bread and you’ll be sighing a sigh of contentment.
The best part is that a set of Roti Kahwin is only RM1.20 and the drinks are RM1.80 per mug. Needless to say, the quality and price makes this place packed from morning to night. You might have to hover around to wait for a table, but it is definitely worth the wait!
