Mee Kolok Sigek!

Small I may look, my appetite is inversly proportional.
I would hunt for local/street food wherever I go, including in Kuching, Sarawak. Being the largest state in Malaysia, Sarawak located on island of Borneo and consider as East Malaysia together with its neighbour Sabah.

The distinct memory of visiting Kuching is its FOOD, of course! Roam the streets of KL and you'll be dissappointed with your findings as these food best avalailable in Kuching itself. Fly now and vouch what I write here :')  

Mee Kolok

Eat it dry or with soup, both deliver pleasant taste to your taste bud.

Its noodle is springy like instant noodle but with a taste of yee mee. It is made from egg noodle. Always serve with light sauce and condiments like sliced meat (chicken/beef) and blanched vegetables, lastly to be topped with spring onion. It can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even supper or in a simple word, anytime of the day.

Laksa Sarawak

This is what you'll be expecting to received when u ordered laksa sarawak.

A bowl of thin rice vermicelli or mihun in thick curry-like gravy.

The gravy is cooked with adding sambal belacan, tamarind juice, galangal, garlic, lemongrass and coconut milk. No curry paste added. Laksa Sarawak is unique in its topping of shredded chicken meat, prawn and sliced omelette while retaining the same garnishing like curry laksa of bean sprout, coriander leaves and calamnsi lime.

Sayur Midin

My in-sensitive eyes mistaken this fern with pucuk paku. Truth be told, this sayur midin is only available in Sarawak and even crunchier than pucuk paku. People in Sarawak like it fried with shrimp paste and chilli. Apparently, during my last visit to Kuching, a friend's pregnant friend craving for this sayur midin and we had to buy it at Satok market and bring back to Peninsular. You could crave for this too even if you're not pregnant after your 1st taste!

Teh C Special   

Your visit to Kuching is not complete without having famous Teh C in local coffee shop. Shall I reveal the secret ingrediants? It uses evaporated milk and palm sugar. Try it and be addicted :D

I'm not just gonna let your saliva drip on the keyboard, u can find those foods here.

Opss, not at that map but here.

P/S: Tips while ordering, mee kolok sigek means 'mee kolok satu' or one mee kolok :D
