Yen Ai clinches cleanest coffee shop title

13th October, 2017

By MOHD IZHAM B. HASHIM

KOTA KINABALU: Apart from being one of the best spots for a refreshing thirst quencher, Yen Ai Dessert and Herbal Tea shop is also the cleanest food outlet in the city after clinching the top award in City Hall’s Cleanest Food Outlet Competition in the coffee shop category.

The charming little tea shop in Bornion Centre, Luyang is known among local foodies for their wide range of herbal teas, sweet soups, dessert and other sugary treats.

In his opening remarks, Mayor Datuk Yeo Boon Hai heaped praise on the winners for their relentless support and showing their commitment throughout the competition in pursuing the title of restaurant in the city.

“It gives me immense pleasure to convey my highest congratulations to all participants of this meaningful programme which aims to uplift and maintain the quality and safety of food sold at premises throughout the city,” he said.

During the prize-presentation ceremony, Yeo also took the opportunity to award top honours to representatives of Yen Ai Dessert and Herbal Tea shop, while second place went to Kedai Kopi Yee Fung, followed by Sinsuran Sang Nyuk Mee II at third place.

Yeo said the district-level competition is divided into two main categories which includes participating restaurants and non-franchise coffee shops.

Meanwhile, the consolation prizes for the competition include Kedai Kopi Yuan Siang, Kedai Kopi Jiang Yu Zai and Pin Pin Kopitiam. Winners received certificates, cash prize and trophy.

“This contest which ended last September involved participating coffee shops which are carefully evaluated based on a number of criteria which includes: level of food safety, quality, cleanliness, hygiene of toilets and eco-friendly conducts such as proper waste separation practices as well as phasing out the use of polystyrene food packaging which are harmful to the environment,” he said.

In addition, Yeo expressed hope that restaurant owners and coffee shops can continue to maintain their level of cleanliness and continue fulfilling criteria outlined in the competition at all times.

During the event, he also presented special awards to Deputy Environmental Health Officers, Suriana Salasa, Manager Zone 1 – restaurant and Marcellinus Aisian Jr, Manager Zone 3 – coffee shop.

Among those at the prize presentation ceremony included Robert Lipon, City Hall Director of Environmental Health and Datuk Joannes Solidau, Director-General of City Hall.
