Miri Container City

The all-new Container City in Miri is definitely a place worth checking out for not only locals but also for anyone who is visiting this amazing resort city. Located in North Yu Seng Road in the main city, this is one of the most happening places in Miri now.

The name Container City Miri also may sound like a lifestyle bazaar, but in actual fact, it is a food haven that operates from refurbished containers.

Yes, those old shipping containers have been converted into kitchens at this exciting new place here in Miri, Sarawak.

This food bazaar concept is something totally new and never before seen in Sarawak. There was once a container bazaar in Petaling Jaya, but that concept stopped and we never saw it again.

In Miri, this container concept brings a whole new world of excitement not only to Mirians but those who are coming from Brunei, Sabah or even from Malaysia and other countries like Singapore, Indonesia and China.

Opened in October 2017, Container City Miri has been receiving raving reviews from visitors to Miri, namely from Malaysians, Singaporeans and Bruneians. Among all the restaurants here, the Tusan Ice Cream is probably the most popular.

However, the balance of choices are well thought off and caters to almost everyone. Note that the food here is all pork-free, and there is no alcohol served here.
