Today, I decided to try out ‘New York New York’ at 1Borneo, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah (Lot G – 838). It was already past 2pm when I entered their premises with my wife. The reception was very lively and they left us to look at the Menu for as long as we like. It was a large space, with a variety of seating arrangement. There were a four-seater, an eight seater and a u-shape seater. We decided on the u-shape and thought it would be quite nice for our family – very roomy and comfortable for the 7 of us. But there was a bit of a problem when getting into and out of the seat – we had to move the table.
As, we already had brunch before, we decided to try something ‘light’. I chose the JJ’s Pizzarella : Seafood Marinara Pizza (RM16.90) and A&W Rootbeer (RM5.90). My wife had Fiery Buffalo Wings (5 pieces at RM12.90) and a kicker called Mango Lime (RM6.50). We shared, of course.
The Mango Lime was more lime than mango. My wife said it reminded her of Ice Calamansi at Kopikat Cafe. The pizza was nice with thin crusts and quite crunchy. The Fiery Buffalo Wings had their skins taken out (unfortunately) with hot seasonings inside (the meat was very tender) and covered with a crunchy wrapping. It was very tasty, though very oily too.
