Belacan beehoon is a hawker food only available in [tag]Sarawak[/tag] if I am not mistaken. I knew Sarawak had kolo mee, Sarawak laksa, kampua but certainly not belacan beehoon. When I first heard the name, I thought it would be something like belacan fried beehoon. Allen, my host during my Kuching trip told me that this is the most popular place for belacan beehoon. When Kuching folks think [tag]belacan beehoon[/tag], they think Ah Kheng in Jubilee Ground. Very true.. people were thronging this place even at 3PM well after lunch hour. Well as you can see, it’s very simple.. pour the belacan gravy over the beehoon and serve with a couple pieces of cuttlefish and chilli sauce. Honestly I didn’t like it.. the belacan smell is too strong and the taste is sweet.
What is teh-c-peng in East Malaysia and how is it different from West Malaysia’s teh peng? Well, our usual cup of teh is done by mixing tea and condensed milk, but teh-c uses evaporated milk instead. If you didn’t know, evaporated milk is just like condensed milk, minus the sugar added in the process. In Sarawak, this special drink can even come in 5 layers! The normal teh-c has two layers: tea and milk and teh-c-peng special has an extra layer of gula Melaka at the bottom.
I have never really liked sushi until the arrival of [tag]Sakae Sushi[/tag]. Now, Sakae Sushi is my favorite sushi joint. It has more variety, classier, and most importantly cheaper than Sushi King. And lets not forget the high tech way of ordering food via their web application.. it’s really great. I can develop one of these applications very easily lol, it IS my bread and butter anyway. So contact me if you are interested in one ok
If you didn’t know, the prices of the items on the rotating sushi bar are by the plates’ color:
- Green: RM1.90
- Pink: RM3.90
- Red: RM5.90
For good ais kacang in [tag]Bukit Mertajam[/tag] 大山脚, most will head to a famous stall in Taman Jaya (directly opposite BM Country Club) We, BM lang refer it as 榕树下 ice kacang because the food court is built under a big tree. It is built as simplest as possible – place some tables and chairs under a big canvas shelter and walla, a place to eat!
