Kuching Festival Fair 2015, Kuching

Location: MBKS Kuching, Sarawak

Kuching Festival Fair is held annually for duration of 1 month approximately, starting end of July until end of August (just ended last Sunday). I have skipped for few years because no urge to go. This year I decided to go so that I can share with you all the atmosphere of our famous food fair. I went two times this year, first time my bro invited me to go with him. Second time, we brought mum to go. Two visits, roughly spent RM100. We did control ourselves not to spend on our second visit.

Not only food, there has singing program too.

There are quite a number of stalls selling roasted chicken wings. This stall's chicken wing was quite good.

I have heard many good comments on this oyster omelette. My bro doesn't take oyster so I skipped this.

The sweet corn coated with different flavours for you to choose from.  Quite interesting, but I didn't buy because lazy to bite.

I doubt this ice cream gula apong is the same as at Open Air Market. I skipped this one as I already bought macaron ice cream. One day I would want to try the original one at Open Air Market (when I have the patience to queue).

Roasted bird. We bought two birds because the size was rather small. Honestly, it was "undercooked". The inner was still pink showing.

I ever saw this macaron ice cream at PV128 Setapak. This time it was available in Kuching food fair too. Decided to give it a try, but the price.... I was shocked actually. But still bought a box to try. You can choose the ice cream flavours. 

One bite size of macaron. 3 pieces at RM12. What do you think?

Cheese hotdog, only RM2.50. Bro wanted to give it a try. His comment, "luckily it is only RM2.50."

First and second visit, this ThaiCool had long queue every time. Hmm.. Fried ice cream, you can find around 4 - 5 stalls at food fair selling the same thing. Very competitive.

Churros. I think they should get a proper equipment to fill up the chocolate in the churros. The churros stick wasn't fully filled. Rather disappointing as it costs RM4 yet the center is empty.

Judge from the appearance, you might roughly know the result.

This is Korean egg bread. RM10 for 4 pieces. I wonder why they must get customers to buy 4 pieces instead of 2 pieces. I couldn't finish it alone.. Sigh, what a waste. The taste would be good if served fresh.

Cola chicken wings. The chicken wings were marinated with coke then roast.

Tried so many food, this peanut ice cream is the only one that impressed me. On top of popiah skin, they place three scoops of coconut ice cream then sprinkle the shredded peanuts generously. Tastes real good. Hope I can have it again next year.

I never thought we could spend more than RM50 at here. I always felt regret to spend as some tasted not so great, below my expectation. On second visit, we passed by a stall selling Nyonya kuih and mum was interested to buy. One package RM3.50, 3 packages RM10. We bought the 3 packages RM10. A minute later, I asked my mum why we bought so many as we don't really need it. Worst, you paid 3 packages@RM10 saved only RM0.50!! Gosh... Found myself quite dumb. LOL.

Good Place for Early Breakfast & High Tea @ Hi Bread Kopitiam, Kuching

Location: Jalan Rumbia off Jalan Pandungan Utara, Kuching, Sarawak.
Business hours: Mon-Sat: 5:45 am - 6:00 pm; Sun: 5:45 am - 2:00 pm

When I worked at Petanak area, everyday I would pass by Hi-Bread Kopitiam. At initial stage, there were not many patrons. Later their business slowly picking up. Now there have many patrons visiting every early morning. Parents bring their kids there for breakfast before school. And, their pricing is notably reasonable.

The breakfast set looks very appealing. It is important to start your morning with healthy breakfast.

Egg Mayonnaise Sandwich, my favourite. The portion of egg mayo is so generous. 

Beef Salami Sandwich. I like this one as well.

There still have different menus which you might be interested to try. Not only sandwich, they also sell assorted pastries, e.g. custard bun, raisin bun, ham roll, red bean bun, etc.

* Hi-Bread Kopitiam also has another branch at Pending (adjacent to Pending Post Office).

Best Sandwich in Town @ Munch Cafe, Kuching

Address: 179, Jalan Song Thian Cheok, Kuching, Sarawak.
Business hours: 6:30 am - 3:00 pm (Monday - Saturday)

Munch started business in 2012. My friend recommended their sandwich, especially the ciabatta sandwich. During lunch hours, the cafe is usually fully occupied. Not only sandwich, they also have noodles with meat balls / fish balls, snacks, and desserts like bubur cha cha, fresh mango ice and etc. 

The menus, which attracts you most? Chinese or Western?

Here comes my favourite, Ciabatta Sandwich with Egg Mayo & Vegetables

Ciabatta Sandwich with Tuna Mayo & Vegetables

Bagel Sandwich with Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese.

I would like to try their Baguette Sandwich next time. But..  I'm still thinking to have Ciabatta again. The bread is so chewy and soft in the center and crispy outside. Yum yum.. picturing it, already mouth watering.

Nice Taiwan Style Restaurant, BDC, Kuching

Address: Ground Floor, No 946, Taman BDC Shophouse, 93350 Kuching, Sarawak.

These days I normally have lunch around BDC area, as I can do some grocery nearby also if needed. The other day I had late lunch, around 1.30pm, looking for food. Found this restaurant located in an alley. Looked at the menu and pricing, still reasonable. Decided to give it a try.

The interior design of the restaurant is quite basic.

The menus

I ordered this black bean hot drinks, tastes nice. I liked it, not too sweet and very aromatic.

Let me recall this dish.... If not mistaken, should be Five Spices Pork Rice. Its Taste was good, kinda like the braised meat.

I ordered this dumplings too. This is quite standard. The dumpling skin is not too thick neither too thin. The content was fairly generous also. I managed to finish all of it alone. Not because the portion is small, but I can really eat a lot sometimes.  

Their business hour: Tuesday - Sunday (8am - 2pm; 5pm - 10pm), every Monday off.
