At first glance, you would be able to tell that Kota Kinabalu City is an exciting mix of the modern and the
traditional. Right at the City Centre, you can experience everything current and hip, as well as being able to walk down memory lane of the olden days when Kota Kinabalu was still called Jesselton. One particular location that has perfectly blended the past and present is Lorong Dewan.
Known for being a printer street for years, Lorong Dewan has recently transformed into a hub of exquisite culinary catered to serve those who seek unique eats in Kota Kinabalu. Lorong Dewan’s appeal is not only by its apparent age in details of the designs, architecture and features of its heritage buildings, but also the history behind the street itself. During World War II, Australians utilized the area as their camping location, thus earning its name as Australian Palace.
And now being a place where people go to enjoy some of the best cuisines in town, visitors can also enjoy the distinctive charm of Lorong Dewan. Talented local and international youth have come to display their passion for food and share it with the public by opening impressive cafes, booming the area with their café culture. One we would like to highlight is Chopping Block.
