Dining in the container

On our wedding anniversary, we had a celebration dinner in The Container Cafe. Located at Jln Simpang Tiga (not far from The Spring mall), this was our first visit to The Container.

It is the first and only container cafe (up to date) in Kuching and has been in business for more than a year.


It was a nice, cooling evening when we were there as the rain had stopped. We opted to be seated outside on the upper verandah.


Our verandah was facing the car park rather than the main road; away from the noisy traffic. I liked the quiet and breezy ambience at the veranda.


Love the bar and alcoholic beverage collection of this fusion cafe.



Our evening started off with the grilled lamb chop (RM28.80). We requested for medium rare and it was perfectly prepared. The portion was just nice and we enjoyed the lamb chop with the black pepper sauce.


Fish & Chips (RM23.80) was nice too. They deep fried the battered dory which was fine for us.


Next was their signature salted kampung chicken (RM23.80), half portion.


It wrapped in baking sheet and I was given a disposable glove to deal with it. The salted chicken with oriental herbs was delicious; something we rarely eat.


Last to arrive on our table was the crispy seafood carbonara (RM36.80). Something different from the classic carbonara in the sense that they used the local noodle here. A fusion of crispy deep-fried noodle topped with cream sauce and Parmesan. It was alright but we still prefer spaghetti or linguine in our carbonara.


Overall it was a lovely and delightful first dining experience in The Container Cafe.  Hope to come here to try its other Western specialty.


And a toast to our 14th anniversary.

Happy 14th Anniversary! We have a container place here too - just went once, never went back again...no particular reason. Perhaps should go and check out the place again, see any changes or not. Not a fan of kampung chicken and not a fan of salted chicken either - if it is anything like the very popular ones in Ipoh.

Happy 14th Wedding Anniversary! I thought only the 2 of you and so much food but then I realised the children are with you both to celebrate this joyous occasion so the amount of food is not that much for 5 persons.
