I don’t know about you guys, but if I lepak, I lepak like there’s no tomorrow! If you’re like my friends and me, who love to hang out for long hours, New Atmosferah Restoran is the place to go.

Here’s another place that I really love to lepak at in Kuching, Ceylonese Restaurant! Every time I go to Kuching, I will not miss at least going here once. I really love the food, and the people, and the owner is super nice and friendly too! If you haven’t tried Ceylonese before, you MUST try, I’m not even kidding you, you will not regret it. It really is a popular place to enjoy authentic Northern Indian , Sri lankan and Malaysian dishes and also lepak. Heads up for this place, it’s always crazy packed! But that did not stop me from going here again and AGAIN.

Wayne Cafe, the hot lepak spot in Kuching. This cafe serves from nasi goreng, mee goreng, even Western food and many more! What I love, love, love about this place is that they have cucur! Where can you get cucur at night? You often get them in the morning or in the evening for tea time. Back when I was still in Kuching, I used to go here e-v-e-r-y d-a-y! Not even kidding. I’m not sure if it’s true, but some say it taste a little different now :’). If you guys have been here recently, please let me know what you guys think. I hope it’s still as good. Below recommendations are the dishes I always order here.

Kopicut is one of the famous place to lepak at Wayang Street. Their one of a kind concept where they have a barber inside their cafe is definitely something no one else in Kuching is doing. There’s an update though, they have now moved to Borneo Street that has more seatings and spacious! I have yet to come down and visit their new place, but from my visit to their former spot, I believe they will be nothing short but amazing. Can’t wait to have another round of Kopi or Teh Tak Tun Tuang!

Fairland Hidden Bar is a place to chill and enjoy! With an array of food stalls to choose from, you will have no problem to decide on what to eat. Wait, maybe you’ll have a harder time now that you have all these options. Nevertheless! You’ll love this place, because I know I do. They have a range from local food to Western food. I personally recommend these:
