Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee 建記辣椒板麵 @Lot 10 Hutong 十號胡同, Kuala Lumpur

Recent trip to KL, I brought my friend to try out my favourite food in KL, Kin Kin Chili Pan Mee at Chow Kit. Obviously she enjoyed it as well.

If you are lazy to mobilise, tell you a good news. It's available at Lot 10 Hutong now. I have no idea when they set up at stall here. I accidentally found it when I entered the food court through the other entrance which I hardly used.

Lot 10 Hutong is like a maze. This section which Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee located is quite hidden.

The stall is manned by foreign workers without the owner's supervision. So the quality is different from the main branch. The noodle and the soup were not steamily hot. I still prefer the noodle texture by the main branch.

Depot Road Zhen Shan Mei Claypot Laksa 徳普路真善美砂煲叻沙 @Alexandra Village Food Centre, Singapore

Address: Alexandra Village Food Centre, 120 Bukit Merah Lane 1, #0-75 Singapore 151120
Business hours: Monday - Saturday 9:00am - 4:00pm, closed on Sunday

Last month, travelled to Singapore for a day to visit my friend. She brought me this place for claypot laksa. I had been reluctantly taking laksa for sometime. Especially having laksa in the morning is really too heavy for me.

When it was my turn, I learnt that the stall is one of the Michelin Bib Gourmand Award Winners. Small bowl S$4, medium bowl S$5, and big bowl S$6. Extra noodle / gravy, charge $0.50. Additional ingredients chicken / fish cake / tau pok / prawn, extra charge S$1 and cockle, charge S$2.  It stated "our laksa is spicy".

I ordered the medium size S$5. And, it was really spicy. The gravy was thick and flavourful. The ingredients portion was pretty generous. However, after a few scoops I hardly could finish it.

My friend ordered this seafood soup from 炎記海鲜湯. The soup base was also flavourful, it was really tasty and the prawn was fresh. But. Its taste is unforgettably thick, it will be good to have it once in a while.

My friend's husband ordered this plate from Lau Phua Chay Authentic Roasted Delicacies 老半齋燒臘. The dark sauce is a good match to the meat, it's sweet though. The meat was surprisingly tender.

Foochow Gong Pia 福州光餅 @Hak Ek Trading 合益饼家, Bintulu

Address: Lot G, 212, Jalan Masjid, Pusat Taman Sri Dagang, Shahida Commercial Centre, 97000 Bintulu, Sarawak.

There are many Foochow in Bintulu, if not mistaken there are only two shops selling gong pia. This is one that has longer history and we have patronized it since kids. The size of gong pia was also getting smaller throughout the years. Nevertheless it is still delicious when it's freshly out of oven. Crunchy skin and full of sesame aroma.

Last time, it was RM0.20 per piece. Now 3 pieces at RM1.

They also sell variety of pastries.

Bintulu Google map is incomplete. Hak Ek Trading is located at same block with Ming Hung Cafe.

Kampua @98 Kopitiam 98茶室, Bintulu, Sarawak

Address: 198B, Jalan Kambar Bubin, 97000 Bintulu, Sarawak
Business hours: 5:30am - 3:30pm Monday - Sunday

Kampua is typical breakfast dish for Foochow. My dad brought me here for breakfast, this place served only kampua noodles. Apparently it is famous because the shop was crowded.

The kampua is full of lard aroma. Despite I got bored of having kampua for continuously two days, I still found this delicious.

My dad usually ordered a big bowl of pork liver soup to go with kampua.

Beef Noodles @Muhibah Cafe 親善茶室, Bintulu

Address: No. 31, Shahida Commercial Centre, Jalan Market, 97000 Bintulu, Sarawak.
Business hours: Monday - Sunday 7:00AM - 1:30PM

In Bintulu, there are two places that served the best beef noodles. One is Yee Chwan Cafe and the other one is Muhibah Cafe. Both are specialised in beef noodles and frequently patronised by Muslim customers everyday. Despite their soup base looks identical but the taste can be differentiate. My bro prefers the beef noodles from Muhibah, I'm fond of Yee Chwan's beef noodles more.

Nevertheless Muhibah's beef noodles has bigger portion. Look at the generosity of beef slices and tripe. Yee Chwan's beef meat is 'countable' with 5 fingers even you order the biggest size. That's the reason my bro prefers Muhibah's because its portion really worths the price.

Kuching Food Festival 2018 古晋美食节 (II)

Last Tuesday we went to Kuching Food Festival again to try out some food as recommended on Facebook. First stop, we queued for this onion pancake. Ordered the original version with egg, RM5. Quite expensive though.

The taste of this onion pancake was quite predictable. But it's not really like the Taiwan version. Not crispy, its taste is more similar to roti canai.

Souffle´ pancake, RM8. I ordered the salted cheese flavour, had to wait 30 minutes.

I didn't really have high expectation on this but it surprised me as it was really soft and fluffy.

This is potato cheese ball. We didn't finish it. The price at RM10 for 3 pieces is not really worth it. I guess it tastes better when served hot?

Hokkaido Cheese Toast, we would recommend this.

My bro is not the type of person who likes toast and bun. Surprisingly, he liked this. The cheese can pull really long.

As we were waiting for cheese toast, we noticed there were customers lining up for this. Out of curiousity, we also joined the queue.

The price is a bit pricey, RM8 for a fried kueh tiaw with duck egg. The portion is little. Luckily the taste was good.

My bro bought this Taiwan minced pork rice 嘉一台湾卤肉饭 again. Add-on braised pork skin. This time the rice was well-cooked. 

My bro bought this pork satays. I had no idea which stall he got it from. It was really good taste, juicy and tender. Dip it with chilli sauce, it should goes well with rice, slurp! Highly recommended.

This is my bro's favourite, curry fish balls.

I wanted to try out the 24K Gold ice cream. When I walked up to the stall and saw the price, I turned rational and withdrew. RM18! What a rip-off.

Then I intended to try out this watermelon ice cream too. If the price is between RM8 - RM10, I can still accept the price. Walked toward to the stall, saw the price on menu RM12. Okay, turned and walked away. For me, most of the food price at Kuching Food Festival is not so friendly.

Kuching Food Festival will end on 19/08/2018. If you have not visited the place, please be fast.

Kuching Food Festival 2018 古晋美食节 (I)

Anyone here has been to Kuching Food Festival 2018? I went there with family last week. Too bad it rained when the crowd started to flow in, we had to quickly browse and randomly picked the food to buy. The variety of food was good, less duplication this year.

I don't understand why this fish (whitespotted wedgefish) is placed in the middle of the walkway. Is this appropriate? Clueless the purpose of displaying it.

I'm quite tempted to try this cone ice cream.

Not sure if this is the same vendor I bought the oyster pancake last year. The guy mentioned the waiting time was 30 minutes, I decided not to waste my time to wait.

If not mistaken, there are two stalls selling Souffle pancake. It's quite a new thing in Kuching.

We patronized this stall last year. This year we bought from them again, however... I got quite let down with the undercooked rice.

I bought oyster pancake from this stall. The oysters were not as juicy, the size of oyster is less than a thumb size. Overall the taste was good. We had to queue in the rain.

The can drinks were on stock clearance offer, I can't recall how much my bro has paid for it. RM10 for 5 cans? Its expiry date is August 2018 though. Total we have spent for all the food below was about RM100.

I might visit again to try out different food. Will blog it if any. Click HERE to view all my posts of Kuching Food Festival.

Hainanese Chicken Rice 理想海南鸡饭 @New King Wood Cafe 新金屋茶室, Bintulu

Address: No. 46, Ground Floor, Jln Abang Galau, New Commercial Centre, Sarawak, 97000 Bintulu, Sarawak (Next to Mastama Inn)

I was back to Bintulu my hometown last month. In Bintulu, you can find nice kampua and Foochow fried noodles. Limited food choice for lunch, and this Hainanese chicken rice is my brothers' favourite. They say it's the best chicken rice they ever had. The previous vendor has sold his secret recipe to the existing vendor, so the taste still remained the same. I have been there before, but I'm not really a fan of chicken rice so to be honest..  I can't tell the difference, except the chicken rice in Bangkok.

Overall the chicken rice was taste great. The meat was moist and medium soft, a plus point with a small bowl of soup. You can only order stir-fried vegetables so at least you will have a balanced meal.

Suukee The Original Hainanese Chicken Rice @Jalan Song, Kuching

Address: Lot 11376, Jalan Song, Tabuan Height Phase 7, Tabuan Heights, 93350 Kuching, Sarawak
Business hours: Monday - Sunday 8:00am - 9:00pm

Suukee The Original Hainanese Chicken Rice is located behind Top 10 Food Court at Jalan Song. Every time passed by the restaurant, the business seemed good. That day we didn't really have choice since it was late noon, so we patronized the chicken rice shop.

The menu. The price is slightly on the high side because of the atmosphere.

I ordered the original Hainan steamed chicken rice, RM8.80. The chicken meat appeared bloody, apparently it was undercooked.

My bro had the signature Hainan curry rice with roasted chicken. Same price at RM8.80. I thought the original chicken rice should be cheaper?

Also ordered a set of kaya butter toast, RM3.80.

When we were in the restaurant, the noise made mostly by the staffs who played and joked around. It's good that their relationship among colleague is maintained friendly but not appropriate to make noise in front of the customers. The girl (who assisted as the senior cashier was away) was really bad at math, even a simple calculation. Be watchful, have to double check if your change is correct.
