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.

Alfred Laksa, Sung Heng Cafe 嵩興茶室 @Jalan Sungai Sarawak, Kuching

Address: Ground floor, Lot 93, Section 63, Lorong 5B KTLD, Jalan Datuk Abang Abdul Rahim, 93100 Kuching, Sarawak.
Business hours: Monday - Saturday 6:30am - 2:00pm (Sunday off)

Last week visited this Sung Heng Cafe to try out the laksa. This coffee shop is located somewhere behind Hock Lee Centre, next to Wisma Mahmud. There is also Muslim fast food inside this cafe.

I ordered a small bowl of laksa, RM6. It has 3 small prawns, shredded chicken, shredded egg, rice vermicelli, and garnished with coriander sprigs. The sambal was good and the prawns were fresh. I like they removed the gut thoroughly. But the portion is really small.

Just got to know that the kolo mee there is worth to try too. Should have another visit again next time.

Spring Delight Cafe 品虾面店 @Taman BDC, Kuching

Address: 943, Lorong Bdc, Taman Satria Jaya, 93350 Kuching, Sarawak
Business hours: Friday - Wednesday 7:30am - 1:30pm (Thursday off)

I visit Taman BDC almost every day to get food for lunch and dinner. This Spring Delight Cafe is quite crowded at times in the morning. I had it once before. However, I was not so impressed. Last Monday came to patronize again with my family for brunch.

Fish Kueh Teow Soup (RM8.50)

Mix Soup with Mee Kuning (RM10.00)

This is my Prawn Mee Hoon Soup (RM9.00). With 3 thumb-size of prawns, RM9 a bowl. What do you think? The soup was tasty and the ingredients were fresh. The vendor cooked each order individually. As you can see the different versions of the clear soups presented here.

4 pieces of Belacan Chicken @RM6.00. Among all the dishes, this is the only one I would compliment. The chicken is flavourful and crispy skin. The chicken itself is not marinated with belacan but the dipping sauce is made of belacan. A piece of this chicken is only RM1.50. I thought we would get the breast meat but surprisingly it's thigh meat. This is fried chicken is good to go with rice.

Soi 19 @Vivacity Megamall, Kuching

Location: L3-024, Vivacity Megamall, Jalan Wan Alwi, 93350 Kuching, Sarawak
Tel: 6082-263468

Last week had a birthday celebration for my bro. It was my treat so I let him choose the restaurant he wants to dine. He chose Soi 19 at Vivacity Megamall, Thai cuisine.

We go for Moo Kata the combo set. Moo Kata is a combination of Korean BBQ and steamboat.

Blue Pea Seacoco (RM7.50) & Ice Lemon Tea (RM7)

Thai Green Tea (RM7.00)

Setting up the mookata. Getting the fire on and wait for the waiter to signal us to start barbeque.

Our combo set, add-on 2 sets of 3-layer pork.

Slurp.. It looks so enticing. The soup was tasty and surprisingly flavourful.

3 different dipping sauce. I like the top two, the third one is thicker and tastes sweet. It's not spicy though.

Mince Pork Basil Rice (RM15.90), this one is not recommended. It tastes average and not spicy at all.

Mango sticky rice (RM12.90)

Coconut Ice Cream (RM7.90)

Fried Herb Chicken Wings (RM12.90)

Total spent RM174.30. I like mookata, we all enjoyed it a lot. If time is permitted, I would want to order the add-on lamb and pork.

Signature Madam Tang's Cafe @Brighton Square, Kuching

Address: 2E, Brighton Square, Jalan Song, 93350 Kuching, Sarawak
Business hours: Monday - Sunday 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM

I have been missing from my blog for some time after I run a shop. Did not have time to explore new place to dine. Don't really have time to update my blog. This Madam Tang's cafe I visited was weeks ago. It was in our consideration to dine-in because it's air-conditioned. Madam Tang started their business root at Petanak. It's not airconditioned like their branch at Brighton Square. Many years back, I tried their signature beef noodle at Petanak but I found it rather salty.

I am not sure if they have the same menu and pricing as the Petanak branch. It seems like Signature Madam Tang's Cafe at Brighton Square is more "classy". I browsed through the menu, found the price was much higher than my expectation. Oh, they even have lobster laksa.

The signature Sarawak laksa RM9.50 (take note that the price indicated has not include the service charge).

Claypot Rendang Chicken Rice  RM10.90

Mee Siam Special RM10.90

Chicken Teriyaki Rice RM11.90

Beef Kway Teow RM10.90

Taste wise, just average. It's expected because it's pretty much like SOP recipe. Another credit is that the portion is quite big. But I personally would not revisit unless certain circumstances.
