Tao with Huai Bin
It was a quick decision by us, after Huai Bin called me on Sunday afternoon. We decided to meet at Tao that evening, as suggested by him, for a drink first then go find makan.
Tee hee hee... it was fun when he called me. I supposed he said he wanted to look for "fish fish". The problem is, my sis-in-law didn't know that I am more known as fish fish in blogsphere. :P
"Jie, I think the person is looking for you. Cannot understand what he is talking about at all lar~" My sis-in-law was passing the phone to me.
"Hello?" I said.
"Hi, fish fish? This is Huai Bin. Errr... I'm sorry, but I don't know what to call you except fish fish." Buahaha!!! Sorry Huai Bin, it was my fault. Now you know how you should call me in the phone. :P
We met at Tao. A restaurant with Taoism as there decorating concept.
I was there earlier, and it was strange to hear a dangdut-like song was playing in the Tao restaurant. -_-""" Not quite good for the 1st impression.
Then, I looked at the menu.
Gosh!!! I wouldn't be surprised with the price if I am in Japan. In fact, I would say it is damn cheap.
But... I am in Kuching, and to see the price of the menu... I doubt if they have over-priced the drinks and foods.
Huai Bin reached.
We shifted our seat for 2 times, we decided to sit at the inner section of the restaurant. It was hotter, as no air-con was supplied there.
However, I prefer the section. Better. At least no dangdut song polluting the place.
They also has a lot of little decoration here and there, which is quite adorable.
Heeee.... Huai Bin is really doing his duty as a very responsible blogger.
He did a photographing session on the place from front till the back.
Fish Fish? I am the lazy bone. I'll just take a picture of him doing the review. So, for a much more detailed nice description on the place by Huai Bin, please jump over to his post. ;)
Hohoho! Huai Bin is a fun guy to be with. In fact, for the whole evening, we were spending 4 h chatting and eating. It was a fun night out, I must say.
I learnt a lot of things from him. Thanks Huai Bin, for the good lesson. ^_^
We have had enough photographing session.
So, we shifted back to the front section again. :P (3 shifts of place in a restaurant. LOL)
The bartender has changed. The music has changed.(and I love it) We were out of the sauna-like room into nice-cool room.
Everything started to get better...
I started to like the place.
Huai Bin had a glass of Detox as his 1st drink. Geee... even the colour looked very healthy.
While fish fish was having a huge cup of nice hot-chocolate.
This is one of the best chocolate I had in Kuching, I would say.
Though the price is higher than normal nice cafe standard, I do admit I love the presentation of this choco.
The taste was good too. Rich and creamy. I was sipping the choco carefully, so that even until the end, I still have the spider web pattern in the cup.
A good place to relax yourself while having a good chat in small group.
Oh, maybe I should try other similar coffee places which is blooming like mushroom lately in Kuching to make a comparison.
Overall, Tao is not a bad place, as long as they don't play dangdut songs. Oh ya, it would be much better if they reduce the price of their drinks and foods. :P
Hey Huai Bin, thanks for the drink. ;) Gochisosamadeshita.
