Eng’s Cafe 英姐茶餐室

17 Jul

Location: Jalan Petanak, next to “Chai Ho Pin 蔡和平”

Here comes my personal favourite Kolo Mee in Kuching. This ranked no. 1 in my list for Kolo Mee! I always recalls the taste of its noodle. Others might have different rating for this one, but different people has different taste favourism. For me, this is definitely my no. 1 so far. Second in my list is Ta Wan Kung, which I have introduced before.

The seafood was sold out that morning, so we ordered normal version with pork intestines, meat and fish balls. Love it! Not many Kolo Mee stall will provide soup, but they do. I can’t remember the price, I think it’s between RM3.50 – RM4.00. You have to have it while it is still hot. The taste deteriorates when turns cold.

Oh yeah, if you want to visit Eng’s Cafe, do go as early as you can. They open early, around 6am and noodles will sold out around 10am normally. And they have Laksa too. Closed on Mondays.

“Noodle experts 麵匠” is another Kuchingites’ favourite for Kolo Mee. The main stall is located at Kenyalang’s new business block (behind Shell Station). The one I am going to introduce is the ‘branch’ located at Jalan Song.

The Kolo Mee here tastes good. A bowl of RM3.50, the portion is just right.

The coffee shop here has limited choices. Other than Kolo Mee, they sell Laksa and toasts. Not many people know this place though, as its location is not so ‘ideal’. If the noodle experts at Kenyalang is too crowded on weekends, this place is another option for you.

It is a rare fine to get a nice Claypot Chicken Rice in Kuching. And I have been patronizing this stall for sometime because it has the authentic taste like I had in Singapore when I was still a teen. There is another stall selling Claypot Chicken Rice at Siang Siang Corner in MJC which is good taste to me too but this stall at Thompson’s Corner has thicker aroma.

The original criteria of Claypot Chicken Rice has to have small salted fish slice, chopped chicken meat, mince meat, ginger, Chinese sausage, rice and thick soy sauce. Cooked it until the rice burned on the circumference. Lastly, sprinkled with some white pepper powder. Done! Slurp slurp!

Price at RM6.00, is absolutely a steal for the portion served.

Besides Claypot Chicken Rice, they have Bak Ku Teh as well. But the taste is milder than Klang’s Bak Ku Teh. Price at RM6.00 + RM1.00 for rice.

Tong Kee 棠记烧包

27 Mar

I visited Tong Kee  in noon time around 3 – 4pm on Tuesday. Perhaps like most of the coffee shops in Kuching, they are closed on Mondays.  I have to verify on that again one day.

Tong Kee is famous with its Siew Pao (or Shaobao). Located at India Street. It is quite difficult to locate but if you spot the police station at India Street (next to Merdeka Plaza), you can find it inside the lane next to the police station.  The lane is dead-end actually.
