PAPAR: Benoni Commercial Centre has a new hangout spot for Paparians to chill and relax with the grand opening of U-Tea here, featuring Asian tea culture and healthy fruit beverages.
WSG Group Managing Director Datuk Susan Wong Siew Guen and Director Datuk Wong Ten An officiated the opening of the U-Tea outlet on 2 March 2021, owned by Directors Melissa Wong and Arizan Ariffin Gadait.
Melissa said U-Tea featured a café restaurant concept where patrons could enjoy high quality tea and fresh fruit beverages, and fill their tummies with a wide range of Western food and snacks.
“Our menu is suitable for customers of all ages. We have a variety of healthy tea and fresh fruit drinks for customers to choose from. For lunch, we offer value meal at attractive prices for the working people in the vicinity.”
The lack of cafes in Benoni Commercial Centre had inspired Melissa to open the outlet to cater for the sizeable population in Papar.
Susan said: “With the opening of U-Tea in Papar, the local community do not have to travel to Kota Kinabalu to enjoy cafes like this.
U-Tea at Benoni Commercial Centre is open from 11am to 10pm daily. It is the 14th U-Tea outlet established under the Sabah-based franchise founded by Barry Lio.
Other U-Tea outlets are located throughout Sabah as well as one each in Miri, Sarawak and Labuan.
She said U-Tea offered not only tea and fruits beverages, but also Western cuisine such as pizzas, burgers, pastas and snacks catering for both young and old customers. They even serve hot tea for patrons who prefer something warm to drink.
She said patrons could opt to dine in the air-conditioned premise, or at the roofed open-air area where they were shielded from the sun and rain.
Before this, Brilliant Brew Sdn Bhd celebrated the opening of its second Tealive outlet at Benoni Commercial Centre here. The event was also officiated by Susan.
Brilliant Brew Sdn Bhd’s first Tealive outlet was established in Keningau.
Susan said Tealive was a welcome addition to the flourishing Benoni Commercial Centre in Papar.
“Tealive is a favourite place for youngsters to hang out and enjoy bubble tea.
“Benoni Commercial Centre will be even livelier with the opening of Tealive here,” she said.-HS
