Kota Dine & Coffee
“When Francis Meets Rempah @ Fort Cornwallis, Penang”


The gastronomic escapade of late has been a wondrous adventure especially after visiting the splendid Victorian architecture of Farquhar Mansion for its moreish High Tea tête-à-tête session and its dainty Fine Dining Chef’sTasting menu which embodies the cinq philosophy.




In fact, there was more to discover about the beauty of this food haven such as our maiden visit to this unique dining area of Kota- When Francis Meets Rempah, located at the historic Fort Cornwallis, one of the famous tourist spot in Penang.




Dubbed as progressive menu, their interpretation of Asian cuisine is inspired by the gastronomic possibilities as Kota Dine & Coffee welcomes you to an experience of Western culinary delights that embraces traditional local Malaysian flavours. It’s an ode to art which showcases a dedication towards authentic creations and indirectly compounds the inexplicable experience that both Kota and Fort Cornwallis have to offer to visitors.
