And my favourite bowl of laksa ~ Miri


What to eat… what to eat… can’t decide 🙂

Beef rendang?

or prawn laksa?

A bowl of laksa remains my favourite..

Tomato fried egg-noodle ~ superlicious…

noodle with minced meat, carrot, cucumber… yummy coz it has a sour taste from black vinegar.

or my new found love ~ curry mee (noodle)

I’m so so so hungry….

It’s almost lunch time and I’ve been craving for some Henghua noodles soup. I love the clear soup with seaweed and seafood 😉

A couple of weeks back my friend brought me to this Henghua cafe along Abell Road. Whao!! This place has the full range of Henghua noodles, Henghua fried rice, etc.  Of course, I went with the noodle I’m most familiar with… ‘ta mien’ soup.

Few days later I went back for Henghua ‘mee sua’… yes, Foochow ‘mee sua’ served in their Henghua style clear soup – if you’re a big eater like me, go for second serving.

I went back for fried ‘mee sua’… who would have known ‘mee sua’ can be fried. ‘Mee sua’ is so delicate and soft and yet can be fried. Next time I’m going to try their Henghua ‘kolok mee sua’!!!! – oooooo can’t wait for my next trip there!

You’ve heard of fried tomato mee… now try fried tomato rice 😉

Their full set of menu here and more when you get there.

Wondering what to eat for lunch or dinner?? Try this Hainan Curry Chicken Rice!

Drive down to behind Hock Lee Centre (Lorong Datuk Abang Abdul Rahim 5). The shop is not difficult to find coz this coffeeshop is packed every lunch time. They don’t serve you anything else but chicken and chasiew rice. Just sit down and order your drinks and your chicken rice will be served as fast as the lady can chop up your orders. 😉

Served with chilli sauce and belacan-chilli sauce.

Opening hours 9am-2pm. Reopens again at 7pm.

Aaaahhh… my sumptuous lunch!

Somebody sent this video clip to me and I want to share it with those of you who misses Kuching food or wondering what Kuchingites are eating day and night.

The person who did this video clip didn’t mean to infringe any copyright… so just enjoy the clip.

Thanks Norman for such an entertaining and delicious video.

Try 101. This place is crowded every night (except rainy nights). Lots of food to eat. Be sure to tell the hawker where you’re seated – table number and direction. It seemed there are more than one table no. 32 😦

This place will sure be a hit for the football fans in June… yup, 54 days counting down to the world cup!

Be warned… not enough parking space if you head out to this place around 8-9pm… two-way street become one-way, double parking, yellow line parking, parking on the curb, you name it… where there are good food nobody bothers with traffic rules. Yay, Kuchingites!

Look away now if you have weak stomach!!! 😉

We were at Bau market the other day and saw a lady selling these sago worms at 30cents per worm!!! (My aunt told me it used to be 3 worms for 10cents). Since my aunt loves the wormie thing so much, she bought about 80 wormies at a bargain price of 20cts/worm… gees…

Well, we brought it home and wash them. First soak in water (while they are still very much alive)… then rub one by one with fingers (like giving them a massage) to clean off any dirt on their hairy skin.

After all the cleaning is done, pour them into a hot pot/wok. No oil needed. They would still wriggle around for a while before…err…err…

Well, we cooked it until the oil from the sago worms come out… a lot of oil came out! It smelled like butter – like somebody’s baking a butter cake kind of smell.

Then you add in salt to taste. Somebody told me that we can cook it with curry powder too.

Anyway, what it tastes like??? Well… I was told the head tasted like peanut and the flesh like chicken… I won’t know I won’t dare tried it 😉
