My 1st time trying Kam Pua Mee

I always get confused between kolo mee (干捞面) and kam pua mee (干盘面), because I never see, never touch, never smell and never taste before any kam pua mee in my entire life. Since I'm sending my cousin-nephew to Bintulu for his school holiday, I take this opportunity to see, to touch, to smell and to taste kam pua mee in Bintulu.

Why Bintulu? If I'm not mistaken, there's no real and pure kam pua mee in Miri. No? Well, any differences between kolo mee and kam pua mee? In Miri, Kuching and West Malaysia, people call it as kolo mee; whereas in Sibu, Bintulu and Sarikei, people call it as kam pua mee. And so? Differences?

Well, does it looks exactly like kolo mee? Tell you what, my eyes told me that they look exactly the same, my nose told me that the smell also same and my tongue told me that the taste 100% same... LOL!!! The only difference I can tell is the thickness of the noodle. I can see that kam pua mee is thicker than kolo mee. That's it...

Anyway, the kam pua mee that I've shown in the photo above is from Ming Hung Cafe, Bintulu. It's located at the Bintulu Port, easy to find.

In my opinion, there's nothing special about the taste of that particular kam pua mee, because I'm bored with the taste of kolo mee in Miri.

Can someone tell me the real differences between kolo mee (干捞面) and kam pua mee (干盘面)? Because I really don't know the differences. Don't tell me the main difference is the language... Because I knew that, LOL!

*P.S #1: I know this shop doesn't serves the best kam pua mee in Bintulu, it's just for my trying purpose, and you should know that the writter is from Kuala Lumpur ;)

*P.S #2: Let's ignore the style of kolo mee in West Malaysia, because it is completely different.
