LFT: Ice Coffee

I kid you not when I say that almost everywhere I went to in Tawau these days, I literary cannot escape from seeing coffee stalls. Initially I wasn’t a fan of such beverages but after trying out a sip (or two) from my partner’s drink, I suddenly became an ice coffee addict. I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve tried out almost every coffee available here in Tawau but I have narrowed it down to my top two choices from the lot. Mind you, this two does not include those from cafes and such since I’m focusing on specialty stalls only.

Coincidentally (or maybe not so much on their part) my top choices actually resides right across one another, at the Hill Top area (beside the JPJ main office area). And unlike other locally produced coffee, these two are actually from popular franchises. So to sum things up and to see which one is better, I’m breaking them down to these facts… 

Brief descriptionFounded by a now millionaire entrepreneur who had also founded the once popular Anis Choc Moist Cake
The goodThey definitely stick to what they know best and produce only 5 choices of coffee flavourings (so far) but each with very refreshing and compact tastes. Also they’re very mobile since they’re available at other places around different times of the day
The badI’m not too fond of their plastic packaging (although it’s unique, it made it hard for me to put it down while I’m driving). And the quantity might not be as much as it’s rival due to the packaging + ice content. 
My favouritesChocolate & Mocha
Brief descriptionOwned by QOMA Global Resource (thank you Anonymous reader for this info)
The goodThey have better variety when it comes to their coffee, more in terms of coffee content and their stall was just cute to look at (a plus in attracting customers)
The badI’m sure that other people will disagree with me but I personally do not like their Fruity and Soda line of drinks though.
My favouritesDouble Chocolate & Milo Dinosaur Special

My personal ratings (for both) are as follows…

Food – 4/5 (depending on your taste buds)  
Price – 3/5 (understandably a little pricey than your average coffee)
Service – 4/5 (unless you’re ordering more than 10, then it won’t take them long to prepare your fix)
Decor – 3/5 (fairly simple looking stalls)
Location4/5 (near to the Hill Top shops area, they’re visible by the roadside)
