    An unlikely joint to feature Nasi Arab as part of their menu as this laid back cafe mainly serves local cuisines and snacks as part of its offering however, Kopi O' Corner has succeeded in providing an authentic Nasi Arab one could get around Kuching alike of the other dishes that they serve here. A little off than the usual course of a Nasi Arab, presentation wise, Kopi O' Corner's contains a little locality to it and even the taste would fit our local tongue too. 

    Tips

    Have a go for their chicken instead.

    Things to expect

    A normal portion that can fit a serving for one.

    Best with

    This cafe's famous prata roll as a dessert perhaps.
