Back in my uni days, Everyday Food Court was one of our most frequented food courts not only because it was the largest around, it is also open air with quite a number of good food. I could remember the prawn noodle, chili crab with fried bun, grilled seafood and Sarawak hand made noodle were our favorites at that time.
While I usually don’t recommend food prepared by foreign workers, I have to give credit where it’s due: the duo have been selling the noodle for almost 10 years and may have mastered it quite well.
I think any Sarawakian would agree that there’s no such thing as hand made noodle available any where in Sarawak. So, the name would be nothing but used to resemble a mix of two famous Sarawak local food: Kolo Mee and Kampua. In this case, it’s like Kampua’s noodle topped with the ingredients of Kolo Mee.
When having dinner together one night recently, a close friend of mine AhJames mentioned to me that Everyday Food Court‘s Roast Duck Rice is quite good. Heeding his recommendation, I purposely dropped by Puchong one day for lunch at the said food court even though my office was located at Cyberjaya. This food court was one of my favorite places to have dinner when I was still a undergraduate in MMU.
I specifically ordered for roast duck drumstick but was given a normal plate @ RM4 instead. Ah well, never mind.
The roast duck meat was lean but was quite fatty under the skin. Taste wise it was not bad at all, nothing to complain about. Click here to continue reading >
My visit to Kuching about three years ago opened my eyes (and mouth) to some really nice hawker food like Kolo Mee, Sarawak Laksa, Sio Bee and Teh C Peng Special. Among all I missed Kolo Mee and Teh C Peng Special the most.
It’s difficult to find someone who prepares Kolo Mee like how they do it in Kuching, mainly because most of the recipes have been tweaked to suit the locals’ taste buds. If you frequent hawker centers in KL you will find many stalls claiming to sell Sarawak Noodle or Sarawak Handmade Noodle, only to be prepared by foreign workers. Although some of them are actually quite good, it’s nothing like the real Kuching Kolo Mee.
Then I read about a stall in Puchong that sells Kolo Mee which tastes like those in Kuching at headsteadi’s blog. I have always wanted to give it a try but somehow I’d just totally forgotten about it, until last weekend. Based on headsteadi’s clear direction and armed with a GPS, it was extremely easy for me to find the food court where the Kolo Mee stall is at.
This is the first time I saw a ‘Sarawak Kolo Mee’ stall in Klang Valley.. the rest just go by the name ‘Sarawak Noodle’. Click here to continue reading >
Two doors away from the renowned Puchong Yong Tau Fu at Puchong Batu 14 is another popular Yong Tau Fu restaurant, called Kedai Mee Siew and Yong Tau Fu (in Mandarin). On all the occasions that I had my dinner at Puchong Batu 14, I have always noticed a full-house crowd at Kedai Mee Siew.
That had always made me wonder what was the highly sought food. And the lack of signboard didn’t help too. Before my visit yesterday, I could only speculate that noodles was the crowd puller, which turned out to be only half correct because both noodles and Yong Tau Fu are available.
Actually our original plan was to eat at Puchong Yong Tau Fu, as it has never failed us so far. But before we reached our destination, our plan was quickly derailed. Fascinated by the number of people having their dinner at Kedai Mee Siew, we decided to give it a try instead of always eating at the same place. Click here to continue reading >
