Outside, illuminated letters spell the way to The Granary, a restaurant whose paint-chipped walls and polished-concrete courtyard wouldn't be out of place in Williamsburg, Kreuzberg or Shoreditch. But this isn't New York, Berlin or London, it's Kuching - a compact city in Borneo's wild west, whose chief claim is being capital of Sarawak state.
When I tried to search for this place in Kuching, it really caught me off guard. I didn't realize that this place is very hidden. To find such a place in Kuching was like finding a hidden treasure spot. Spot their logo when you first arrived at the entrance slope.

初次与朋友来这儿，点了Old School Lemonade & Hedgehog Slice， 再与朋友闲聊和看看一些当地时事，感觉非常的舒服。虽然我是吃饱才去的，可是我也品尝了一小口的Kamikaze Chicken Burger & Salted Egg Chicken Burger， 对我个人来说， 真的很好吃！说真的， 这地方挺不错的，环境大而优美，服务也很好 。这儿就好像融入了咖啡屋与酒吧的概念，非常有欧风style喔！而且还有Live Music。我忘了组合的名， 可是他们唱的每一首歌都能扣人心弦，非常好听。如果喜欢享受与解压的朋友们， 不妨来这儿喔。 Salted Egg Chicken Burger

In the renovation process, the existing structures were preserved as much as possible. The existing brick walls and timber structure were exposed to create textures that told the story of the building's past use. New elements as well as recycled building components salvaged from other buildings were inserted into the existing structures of the building where necessary.
'Twas a drizzling night in January 2016, when Wendy and I chanced upon the Granary Kitchen + Bar after exploring Carpenter street on foot. We were immediately curious - there was no place like it in Kuching, but then again we have been foreign to home for far too long.
