Food Hunt : The Search for the best Waffle in Kota Kinabalu


Waffle can be breakfast, lunch or dinner. They can be sweet, topped with maple syrup and fresh fruit, or savory, filled with herbs and topped with gravy and fried chicken. Waffles can even be a dessert, topped with scoops of ice cream and lots of whipped cream.

For local Sabahans, our first known waffle was from the kiosks served in brown paper bags. With the emergence of cafes and restaurants in Kota Kinabalu, many outlets now offer waffles on the menu, but only a few are exceptional. Here is our guide on where to get some of the best waffles in Kota Kinabalu:

Pancake House International Kota Kinabalu

You can expect not only good quality Pancake from Pancake House International Kota Kinabalu but also good quality waffle. The golden brown waffle is simple yet delicious or else you can go for the caramel banana walnut waffle.

Caffe Benne

Caffe benne Belgian waffles are moist, but crispy on the outside. The tiramisu waffle served with espresso ice cream softens the waffle and melts perfectly in the mouth.

Print Cafe

Fried chicken and egg between two waffles. We love the creativity but the waffle tastes flat and dull. The contents of the burger were similarly disappointing as the mayonnaise overpower whatever taste of the content.

Biru Biru Cafe

There is nothing fancy about the waffles served at Biru Biru cafe but once you try them you will love them for sure. They are crisp enough on the outside and very fluffy on the inside, served with gula melaka and topped with local coconut ice cream. One is never enough. Price: RM10.90 Presentation : 3.5/5 Taste : 4/5 Value for money : 4/5 Opening hours : Daily 8am to 11.30pm Location : 24, Lorong Dewan, Kota Kinabalu


Adelphi & Co

The waffles from Adelphi & Co came highly recommended by many people, but after trying them, we did not think that it was that fantastic. The waffle that we had was decent. It was beautifully presented and the caramelized banana was wonderful but the waffle was soggy and didn’t do justice to the toppings.
