I have not seen coffee served in this antique for long long time. Was suprise when they serve it to me. It actually make the coffee taste better (psychology effect).

I had Lo Mee. When they serve i got shocked. Not to sure i was able to finish it. I love the gravy very much. It was serve with and egg, so before u eat it break the egg yolk and stir it in. This will make the gravy creamy.

Chicken Porridge :- Aladdin Cafe, Carpenter Street

This is quite a famous spot for chicken porridge and their Fried Chicken Wing. To bad that night when we are there they run out of Chicken Bottom but the owner ask me to wait for another 30min for the next batch of Chicken Wing to be ready. My friend decided to do take away.


We settle with the Fried Fish ball. That also they left with two skew. The Fish ball was nice. It was crunchy on the outside and soft in side. They have actually coated the fish ball with some spices. The fish ball was served with their home made sweet and sour sauce.



Tom Yam bee Hoon :- Sarawak Golf Club, Jln Pustaka

This tom yam bee hoon is really yummy but it was kind of too spicy for me. They are quite generous with the seafood. I miss this very much. Was wondering when can i go again.

Theresa Sarawa Laksa @ Jalan Borneo (Opposite Hilton Hote) (*HALAL)

This is me and my friends favorite spot for laksa after clubbing. The owner only start her biz at 7pm until wee hour. Janet Lau introduces me to this place. She told me that i must try the laksa there cause it was really really nice. So i gave it a try and true indeed was nice. The gravy was not that heavily spiced nor the santan was to heavy.

RM 4 is the normal price. RM 6 is for special and "cheng". This is the first place i found in kuching that they have "cheng" laksa. Cheng means there is no bee hoon in the soup, there are prawn, shredded chicken, shredded egg and bean sprout with laksa soup. for those who wanted to go on diet should get "cheng".


Foochow Kam Pua Mee :- Yi Ann Cafe, Jalan Goh Meng Teck

I like the kam pua mee at this shop. It taste more original as they are using the original kam pua noodles.

Pork Ribs Curry :- 9898 Seafood - 98 Cafe, 1 TJ

Not long ago my cousin ask me out to go yam cha with them. That was already like 11.30pm. As his shop is around tabuan jaya area he wanted to go to 98 cafe near to 1 TJ. The seafood stall owner introduce him to have pork ribs curry. The owner said they don't cook that dish all the time. At first I was thinking to have coffee only no food. So my cousin in law and our friend ordered the pork ribs curry rice. When the food was serve the curry does smell good. Got so hungry after enjoying the smell. At last i ordered the curry rice but never regretted it as it was so good. The curry gravy is so thick but it was not that oily.


Sharing Cafe, Jalan Stapok

This cafe is in a very secluded space but still there is lotsa ppl patron this cafe. They serve western food. If you guys know where Dewan Badminton Stapok is then you will be able find this place.

Garlic Butter Dory Fish :- The fish is not over cooked, it is still tender and juicy. It has hints of garlic and butter fragrant.


Carbonara Spaghetti :- Very creamy and cheesy. Me and my friend really love this.


Mango Smoothies :- According to the owner of this cafe, they use one whole mango for a glass of smoothies. The mango is been blended with vanilla ice cream. The owner said that they would not have this smoothies all the time as they will only serve if they are able to find good quality mango. This smoothies is RM 8.80



Me and my friend spend not up to 50 for this meal. Price is reasonable as the portion is kind of big.

Nasi lemak :- Happy Valley, Pending

If you guys remember my previous post about happy valley set lunch. I like the babi ponteh so much. If the set lunch does not come with babi ponteh i will settle with my second choice which is their Nasi Lemak. The Nasi Lemak cost RM4.50. It come with Ayam Masak Merah, Fried Peanut and Anchovies, half Hard Boil egg, Sambal and Coconut Milk Rice.

The rice has the coconut fragrant but it is not so oily. Sambal is spicy and yummy.


Pancakes :- Peach Garden, Jalan Song

The pancakes that they sell here is kind of special, it does not looks like those pancakes that i normally had. It looks like apam balik (A type of local delicacies). The normal apam balik is with peanut and sugar. This one is serve with Ham and Cheese. There are few other flavor too. Guess this is when east meet west new food been created.



If they have shred the cheese and spread it out it would be better. As for now the cheese is just in the middle. Or they can put a lil mozzarella cheese in charge at a higher price. Don't mind to pay extra for the mozzarella cheese or extra cheese.

Mixed pork soup & Kolo Mee :- Bishop Gate

I love the soup that been serve here. Well it was really famous in kuching. Normally you have to wait about half an hour to get a sit and then another half an hour to get the owner to take your order and then another 20 min or more to get your food serve for you. But i dun mind to wait for it. As it was so good everybody is queueing up for it. Most kuchingites would know where this place is.

For the new comer that has never been to the shop before, please do not mind the way they talk to their customer. New comer will normally find him really rude. Well the way he talks is loud and rude but he was only joking.

The plain noodles. I like the noodles with lotsa black vinegar and fried onion.


And now the Soup. Yummy........ They have prawn, minced meat, pork intestine, fatty meat, seaweed, Salted veggie and fish cakes.


Penang Cuisine :- C121 Food Court, Stutong

Penang Har Mee (Prawn Noodles)

Eating this without the belachan is not that nice.....but when u mixed it with the belachan it taste good....Not bad


Penang Laksa

Not nice. The one that i had the last time at jalan song is nicer....


Sarawak Laksa :- Kwong Hup Cafe, Jalan Keretapi

The other day i went for lunch with my friend at Kwong Hup Cafe. Most of the food there has finished. So i thought to give the laksa a try. The laksa came out to be very disappointing. The gravy has not laksa taste and the prawn is so small. This bowl of laksa cost me RM 4.


Set Lunch :- Happy Valley, Pending

I love to go too happy valley for their set lunch. Their set lunch normally come with 3 type of dishes and a soup. It cost me only RM 5. Normally I will try to look out for those day that the set lunch come with Babi Ponteh. I love their Babi ponteh.

Sarawak Kolomee :- Eng's Cafe, Jalan Pertanak

This is one of my favorite spot for kolomee too. Situated somewhere around pertanak market.

The prawn are very fresh. Noodles is not soggy. I personally recommend this. The only problem is that you need to go early as normally their will finish around 10am. They open at about 5am in the morning.

Eng's Cafe

Fook Hai Dim Sum, Jalan Padungan.

The Kolo mee is nothing much. But i know their dumpling was nice. that is the only noodles stall at that shop. I will try to go eat the dumpling and take the pic to show u all.

Fook Hai, Kolo Mee

Big Pau.. It was nice. The meat is in chunks.

Fook Hai, Big Pau

Siew Mai. I found that the Siew Mai was not that good. I guess it does not have those fatty particles in there. It is all pure meat so it was not so juicy.

Fook Hai, Siew Mai

Har Kau....the skin is too thick. But the prawn is very fresh.

Fook Hai, Har Kau

Chicken Rice & Roti Kahwin :- Good Thumb, Batu Kawa

Chicken Rice - some comment from kuchingites that the chicken rice here is nice. I personally like the rice but the chicken was nothing much. I guess is a bit pricey. The chicken is for two person.



And we have ordered the 'Roti Kahwin' (toast). The toast is crunchy. Nice and they are generous with the butter & homemade kaya. NYUM NYUM.


Sarawak Kolomee :- Big Potato Cafe, Jalan Pertanak

This stall kolo mee use to sell at green hills. When Kuching municipal council clearing up the road side food peddler they were force to move. When i started to eat their kolomee it was good. Guess now the business is handed over to his son so the taste of kolomee was not the same as last time anymore. I still prefer the Kolomee prepared by the father.
