KUCHING, May 29: The five-star Waterfront Hotel has switched gears to serving hotel standard meals at drive-thru hawker stalls between RM8 to RM15.
With the recent announcement by the State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) that dine-ins are prohibited and only take-aways, drive-thrus are allowed, The Waterfront Hotel Management said they too wanted to bring hotel food closer to the public while making ends meet.
“The Waterfront Hotel, Kuching’s only independent 5-star boutique hotel has jumped on the bandwagon and devised a convenient plan to pamper their loyal guests with some of their best-seller food, including the Sarawak Laksa!
“Guests are able to order and get their food prepared straight away or they can simply pre-order from the comfort of their offices or homes and proceed to pick up on specified date and time at The Waterfront Hotel drive-thru stall located at the hotel entrance,” it said.
Other than their signature Sarawak laksa that comes either in Regular (RM8) or Premium (RM15) portion, the drive-thru stalls that operate daily between 10am to 7pm also serve local favourites and Western such as fried kway teow, fried rice, mixed garden salad and spaghetti beef bolognese in generous portions.
For safety and hygiene purposes, the Management said all food handlers at the drive-thru stalls are required to wear hand gloves and face masks at all times while guests are also requested to register themselves with MySejahtera and get their temperature taken at the entrance of the stalls.
Contactless payment is also highly encouraged with e-wallets such as SarawakPay and Boost to minimise any forms of close contact.
“Should the current plan get an overwhelming response from the public, the drive-thru concept will definitely be a permanent feature until things start looking up once again for the hospitality industry as a whole,” it said in a statement today.
