Chun Yang Taiwan Black Tea 春陽茶事@Emporium Kuching, Kuching

Address: G1, Ground Floor, Emporium No. 9, Jalan Tun Jugah, 93350 Kuching, Sarawak.
Business hours: Monday - Sunday 11:00 AM - 11:45 PM

There are total 3 cafes at Emporium selling pearl milk tea. Chun Yang 春陽茶事 is the one at the entrance. The design of the storefront and logo look very "Taiwanese". It reminds me of Chun Shui Tang 春水堂, the restaurant in Taiwan whose staff invented the pearl milk tea.

The interior design looks good, but.. as we entered, the strong smell of herbs was quite unbearable.  I didn't know what they were brewing in the pot. Honestly, the scent was not so pleasant.

I had the one in the middle called Brown Sugar Pearl with Fresh Milk RM12.90. It tastes good, the sweetness can't be customised. But it was just nice, not as sweet as I thought it would be. The pearls were very chewy, it was nicer as compared to what I had at HiCaa.

HiCaa 贺茶 @Vivacity Megamall, Kuching

Address: G065AS & G065BS, Ground Floor, Vivacity Megamall, Jalan Wan Alwi, 93350 Kuching, Malaysia

Lately there are many bubble tea shops opened in Kuching. This business expansion of HiCaa is quite aggressive as well, 3 outlets in total and 1 outlet in Miri. I visited the one at Vivacity Megamall. The interior design of this outlet is attractive, it's a good place to hang out with friends.

Black Pearl Milk Tea, Strawberry Milkshake, and Signature Cocoa Cream Milk Tea.

The drinks itself was good but not the black pearls, it's slightly hard not chewy enough.

Himawari Ramen Bar @Padungan, Kuching

Address: 179, Jalan Padungan, 93100 Kuching, Sarawak
Business hours: Thursday - Tuesday 9:00am - 3:00pm (Closed on Wednesday)

Some time ago I drove passed Padungan road, noticed this unimposing shop with the unattractive banner. But the two words "RAMEN BAR" caught my eye. There is no big signboard but it definitely has caught a lot of attention.

Weeks ago, I finally recalled this place and made my first visit there.

It's not air-conditioned, equipped with an open kitchen. The owner was really welcoming and friendly.

Nam Manglak (RM3.90)

Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Lime Mohito (RM4.90), very refreshing drinks.

Steamed Rice Water Cake / Chwee Kueh (RM1.10 per piece)

Rich Creamy Tori Paitan Ramen (RM16.90), also called "chickens in the garden".  The chicken boxing wings are very flavourful.

Gyuniku Shoyu Ramen Hikari (RM10.90), the owner used Australian beef. The meat is very tender, chewy noodles, and thick broth. 

Gyuniku Aruba Soba Hikari (RM12.90), the dry version of Gyuniku Shoyu Ramen Hikari. The chili sauce is hot, very shiok.

Xinjiang BBQ Skewers 中国新疆烧烤 @Premier 101, Kuching

Address: 中华美食站 Zhong Hua Cuisine Terminal, 8526-8531, Lorong Kempas 6, Kempas Heights, 93350 Kuching, Sarawak.
Business hours: Monday - Sunday 5:00pm - 12:30am

Premier 101 area has many food stalls operated by vendors from China. I don't usually visit there because of the traffic congestion and the BBQ smoke environment. Years ago my friend bought this Xinjiang bbq skewers and I was impressed with the taste.

Chicken wings RM12 per 4 pcs.

Flammulina RM5

Mutton skewers RM10 per 4 sticks.

If you like it spicy, you can ask them to spread more chili powder. All the skewers taste the same, it's cumin. I like mutton skewers the most.
