Lonely Planet described the Bla Bla Bla Restaurant as “One of Borneo’s most stylish restaurants. Expect tasty fusion food in a cool/indoor dining area that you access by traversing stepping stones across a carp pool under the watchful eye of a Buddha…”

Tucked in the middle of the busy streets just before the Jalan Tabuan – Jalan Bang Hock roundabout, Kuching’s Bla Bla Bla Restaurant is the place to go for a out-of-the-ordinary dinner.

The simple yet effective logo of Bla Bla Bla Restaurant
Bla Bla Bla is a simple, but yet catchy name for a restaurant. Easy to remember and to be spread around. At first I thought it was just another casual dining place. But it turns out to be much better that what I’ve expected.

The entrance area is a bit on the tight side, but it is only a teaser to what’s inside.

Koi pond brings good fengshui for the restaurant
The restaurant is being designed and built in a pretty auspicious manner, applying fengshui elements evidently through their koi pond.

My favorite part of the restaurant is the Koi Pond.
It is also my favorite part of the restaurant. The cool koi pond with elevated footpath leading to their dining area. I’m gonna get one of these for my home someday!

More koi
The koi brings a sense of active flow and is becoming a point of attraction to the restaurant.

Hanging Bicycle
Bicycle hanging on the ceiling. I wonder if that has anything to do with fengshui? No?

Wall photos
You’ve seen enough of Facebook’s wall photos. Now this is the real deal at Bla Bla Bla Restaurant.

The sleeping Buddha

Air-conditioning
Very well air-conditioned. Giving dinners a cool breeze in a hot and humid Borneo climate. Not too cold, but cool enough.

People are enjoying themselves under the chandelier
Dim but sufficient lighting makes it a great place to have a family and friends get-together. I think the overall atmosphere is making everyone happy there.

Now to the food…

Deep fried Soft-shell crab
A Must Order! dish when you’re at Bla Bla Bla, another signature dish, the deep fried soft-shell crab, topped with chicken floss and mayonnaise, comes with a small portion of salad in the middle.

Roasted chicken

Midin with Cheese powder
A signature dish again. This is a cold dish of Midin (a local fern) with sliced chili, onion, garlic, and shallots. It is topped with cheese powder and I think it taste pretty good together.

Rare timepiece
A rare timepiece. It’s almost 11pm and the restaurant is closing at 11:30pm.
