on our first day at Kuching after settling all our luggages in the Sarawak Cultural Village longhouse we headed to town to attend Firefly cocktail party as our stomach were growling and screaming…hence, we headed to the Kuching Open Air Foodcourt at Jalan Khoo Hun Yeong which is located nearby thanks to Norman, Pierce and Irene for bring us KL bloggers me, Chris, Rebecca, Jerine and tallboyz to some real local Kuching food to fix our stomaches!
to feed our hungry and growling stomachs for starters we had Sio Bee
i’m confused between this Sio Bee with Siew Mai as they look the same but taste differently. Sio Bee is Kuching Siew Mai, its filling are minced prawns, chic and glutinous flour. *ahhhhh….Interesting eh?*
and Char Siew pao (steamed buns) it’s bigger in size plus it’s sweet and it’s minced Char Siew (bbq pork). Taste real good!
fresh soya milk
Kolo Mee uncle in Action!
owh my first bowl of Sarawak Kolo Mee~ nom nom!
there’s indeed difference between KL kolo mee and the local sarawak kolo mee they gave the red sauce which it’s really hard to explain but it taste good while top with Char Siew (sliced BBQ Pork)
Sarawak drinks and deserts
The tall one is White Lady comes with Lychee, pineapple cubes, fresh watermelon, colourful jellys while topped with shaved ice and syrup.
on the left is Mount Matterhorn which is cendol but without coconut milk and it’s sour.
on the right is Local Cendol, love the small red beans they are soft, cute and really smooth!
Fried Radish Cake comes with chai poh (preserved vegetables) it’s cut into cubes not too big nor too tiny just nice and it’s well fried not over cooked neither. I’m very satisfy with this plate of chai kueh.
the next day Pierce bring us for Cincaluk Chicken in Petanak Central Market
store number 11. We had Cincaluk Chicken Deep Fried. At first we’re full but after 3 minutes of the chicken arrival we finished the entire plate.
on our last day we had what we call Kuching Local Food Hunting. Basically we eat almost every hour till we board our plane back to Kuala Lumpur! So our first stop was here in C121 Food Station.
Three layer tea and the green one is Fresh Aloe vera drink!
Herbal pork soup Mee Sua
Tomato Noodles aka Sarawak Noodles in Tomato sauce
Yao Cha Kuai with Kaya and Mayo. Seriously! but delicious, since KL don’t have this we should DIY by bringing Kaya and apply on it ourself 😉
Kam Pua Mee. Almost like Hakka Mee it’s filled with lard and top with Char Siew (BBQ Pork). oily but delicious. Don’t mind the fat 😉
Jublee Recreation Ground “Food court”
Yeo Ah Leng store sells deserts and they have some fancy names for each desert we over heard Lady Gaga!
Lychee kang I love this so much! it has barley, lychee, jelly and shaved ice.
Cendol, the red bean is good 😉
Shui Kuo Ping also known as Fruit Ice. It consisted of nata de coco, fresh fruits and canned ones like lychees, papayas, etc all in a glass!
Pierce introduced us Belacan Beehoon from Ah Keng stall which is located next to Yeo Ah Leng the desert store. It’s only RM 2.50! Topped with cuttlefish and dilute belacan sauce. It’s spicy sweet and sour taste.
and we also try the Fruit Rojak from Yeo Ah Leng stall it’s RM 6 for a small plate. Not bad. It compliments our deserts.
Next we went to buy Kuhi Lapis while chilling at Bing! cafe to digest our stomach before continuing eating in Raja Ayam Penyet and last stop…it’s at Expert Food Court RH Plaza!
something you can’t miss out is…Kuching has lots of Bananas, spotted this at Satok wet market 😉
