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

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 was time to take a short break from work. Time to spend with family since my sister and niece were in town (from KL).

My niece who’s a follower of my food section has requested that I bring her to eat all the food I’ve mentioned here… how to resist such a tempting request? 😉

The following pictures were taken by my niece, Miss Su Tien-yi.

First, right from airport to Song Kheng Hai hawker centre – belacan bee hoon and sugar cane + coconut drink.

KUCHING: The Sarawak Tourism Board (STB) is calling for all Sarawak Laksa lovers to recommend their favourite stalls, especially those in and around Kuching, for grading by Singapore’s food ambassador Moses Lim.

The grading is part of STB’s initiative to identify selected Sarawak Laksa stalls which Lim will recommend for the four-day three-night ‘Sarawak Laksa Escapade’ tour.

Locals who want their favourite stall graded by Lim are to email letitia@sarawaktourism.com under the heading ‘My Recommended Laksa Stall’.

The email should include the stall’s name, full address and contact number (if available). Suggestions should reach STB by March 10.

For those of you who visit http://eric88ling.wordpress.com, you would know that my colleague, Eric, has been down these last few days with a severe bout of food poisoning.

So today, a Saturday, I thought I drive up to his place and check on things; getting better it seems and good enough to go to a nearby coffee shop for some breakfast Sarawak’s style – oh la la….

Laksa ….. The same spicy hot noodles that Anthony Bourdain (spelling?) had when he was filming in Kuching.

So we headed to a place aptly names “Foody Goody Café” and there I ordered my laksa, some deep-fried fritters and a cup of piping hot coffee black or what we call “Kopi-O” in these parts…

You finished your noodles and dip the fritters in the curry gravy and there you have it – perfect divine breakfast for a bright sunny Saturday.

Except for Eric who is still on his rice noodles in plain soup regimen – according to the doctor’s order..

LAKSA!!!!!!! – Sarawak’s favourite bowl of yummy vermecilli, spicy soup (prawn base + coconut milk), omelette, bean sprout, prawns, coriander leaf and lime (for that tangy flavour) for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

food

Another Sarawak’s famous bowl of curly noodles – eaten dry, that’s what the word ‘kolo’ means. Lots of flavour – garnish with ‘cha siew’ (barbeque pork), minced meat, spring onion, some vegie and of course you have the choice of mixing the ‘cha siew’ red oil or just plain. Then eat it with the pickled chilli.

YUMMMYYYYYYY!!! bon appetit!!! – I’m heading out for my LAKSA!!
