P Cafe @Soho West 188, Kuching, Sarawak

Address: Ground Floor, Lot 18692, Soho West 188, Jalan Wan Alwi, 93300 Kuching, Sarawak
Business Hours: Monday - Sunday 8:00am - 8:00pm (Tuesday off)

The other day a friend of mine in FB posted a photo showing claypot mee with big prawn that looks mouth watering. And most surprisingly the price was only RM8. Claypot prawn mee at RM8, sounds so enticing. Browsing through its Facebook page, they have assorted choices to choose. Laksa, lui cha, chicken rice, kampua, kolo mee, etc. So yesterday we went to this place to give it a try.

The interior looks modern with a blend of old school and factory design.

And, most importantly you can use iPad to place order. 🙀  Oh well, quite uncommon for a restaurant like this.

The menu. The food is more towards Chinese cuisine and local style. I took quite sometime to decide my order because too many choices.

Claypot pork with salted fish, RM8.00

Hainanese chicken rice, RM5.30

Chicken curry rice, RM6.80. I forgot to take the photo of curry sauce.

Prawn mee, RM9.00. I think they couldn't get the bigger prawns, so it was replaced with smaller prawns. But comparing with the picture in the menu, the mee should be gravy. I was kinda disappointed. Anyhow, the taste was acceptable.

Overall, the food was ok, price is very reasonable. The taste of the food had no thrill, don't think I would have the excitement to go back. Off-topic, don't you think the ambience of this restaurant is more suitable for Western cuisine?

Haunted House Kolo Mee @Jalan Ong Tiang Swee, Kuching

Address: 42, Jalan Ong Tiang Swee, 93200 Kuching, Sarawak
Business hours: Monday - Saturday 6:30am - 11:00am (Off on Sunday)

This is not really a haunted house, it's just because of its run-down appearance. My bro has been asking me to go this place together for few times but we didn't have the opportunity until last Tuesday. He had read it somewhere in Facebook, someone gave good reviews on the kolo mee here.

The parking space is limited as it is facing the main road. The opposite is Sekolah Kebangsaan Jalan Ong Tiang Swee, very easy to locate.

Some old posters pinned on the wall.

We reached there around 10:45am. The vendor showed us a hand signal that the kolo mee sold out already, only kueh tiaw was available. We were ok with it. Ordered kolo kueh tiaw and fried kueh tiaw. The taste of the kolo kueh tiaw was fragrantly good. Can't elaborate more on the kueh tiaw texture because it is unlike noodles which we can distinguish springy or harder.

The fried kueh tiaw. I didn't put high expectation on this plate. Somehow its taste was incredibly good. This kueh tiaw ingredients contained egg, char siew, and bean sprout, stir-fried with dark soy bean sauce. Though simple but it is flavourful enough.

We ordered kiaw soup (dumplings) too. First time I saw a bowl of kiaw soup added bean sprouts. But I like it, more nutritious.

The map to the haunted house kolo mee.

The vendor asked me to come around 7:30am, more variety to choose from. Well, I should try to go early some day to try out its kolo mee. The price is cheap too. 3 person of us, 3 glasses of teh-o bengs, 2 bowls of kolo kueh tiaws, 1 plate of fried kueh tiaw, and 1 bowl of kiaw soup, totalled only RM19.50.

Rising Ramen 雷神拉面 @City One Megamall, Kuching

Address: Ground Floor,  Mall 1 City One Megamall, Jalan Song, 93350 Kuching
Business hours: 10am - 10pm

Rising Ramen has moved to City One Megamall quite sometime ago. Bigger capacity and better environment. Just that I rarely go to this mall even though it is less than 5 minutes drive from my house. The other day bro suggested to have Japanese ramen so we settled our dinner here.

My Miso Ramen. Just the normal size, I think it costs RM11 or RM13? Can't remember. But I remember it's the cheapest in the menu. The broth tasted good as usual, thick and tasty. The noodle was not overcooked, it's the texture I like the most.

My bro asked for Miso Ramen Special. What's the special? Extra char siu meat slices.  You can order add-on for extra noodles or egg too.

Japanese Tempura Udon. I never like udon, so can't give any comment on this.

Salmon sushi roll. The taste was acceptable. But I don't think they used sushi rice and the salmon meat was rather slender. Feel like homemade sushi rolls, not the pro skilled type. The presentation says it all.

I ever tried their minced meat rice before. The portion was small and pricey. Conclusion, I would recommend their ramen menu only. For sushi rolls, it is overpriced for such quality.

Noodle Delight Café 斗湖生肉面鱼面 @Premier 101, Kuching

Address: Sublot 57, Ground Floor, Premier 101, 93350 Kuching
Business hours: 7am - 2pm (not sure of their off day)
Tel: (082) 572 526

My bro told me about this shop which selling the famous pork noodle from Tawau, Sabah. Finally last Tuesday we went there to try it out. It's just somewhere nearby Yeow Kee Kopitiam, 2 or 3 units distance from Hua Hee Corner (欢喜阁) at Lorong Kempas 6A.

I ever had Tawau pork noodle at Pending, it was very long time ago. I remember the taste was good and I have not been there for donkey's years. I should find a time to go there again, hopefully it is still in business.

The menu. Other than Tawau pork noodle, they also have variety of fish noodles, porridge, and chicken/BBQ pork rice too. The price is reasonable for me. Still within RM10 budget for a meal.

Beverage menu. Variety is limited but shorten your time to decide. Anyway, their specialty is on food. It is good that they have the fresh beverages like "longan kundur lo han kuo", "dried bean curd barley" and "herbal chrysanthemum tea" made by themselves.

The bowl of famous pork slices soup. The meat slice must be thin, very smooth and tender when chewing. I think they have made it. The noodle also tasted nice. A special set like this costs RM9, the portion is very generous.

If you are not interested to have the yellow mee (thick noodle), you can opt for beehoon, kueh tiaw, kolo mee or rice.

My bowl of fish beehoon with tomato soup.  I thought it would be similar to Ayuke's tomato fish mix soup. Looking at its menu again, I didn't realise it has stated "Western Style". No wonder the soup is rather creamy form. It's not to my liking at all. Though the portion is big and worth the price at RM12, but the combination of fish with sweet and creamy tomato soup is still not my cup of tea.

With the price and portion, I think I would go back there again. Their Tom Yam fish noodle soup looks enticing. When the staff passed by our table with the Tom Yam fish noodle soup, I noticed that the prawns were quite big in size, just like in the picture. Did anyone here tasted their Tom Yam fish noodle soup?
