Hunting local foods in Kuching!

In this blog post, I'm gonna list out the foods I've tried during my stay with Samuel Ng who is a Kuching lang. In this entire one week, Samuel has brought me to the places where he normally eats! Indirectly, I'm eating the foods where the locals knew the best! Muahahaha~

Alright, skip with my non-sense, I will brief through 1 by 1 and the list of locations will start from HERE!

(1) Open Air Market

Lotsa foods can be found at Open Air Market, such as porridge, mee kolo (duh, it's every where), chicken rice and so on. However, the most recommended food is the Ah Mui beef noodle! I'm not a beef lover, but what can I say, it taste good!

(2) Hui Sing Hawker Centre

Hui Sing Hawker Centre is one of my favourite spot, because I love the food there! However, I will only show you 2 recommended stalls, which are Stall #4 - Yong Kee and Stall #15 - Palm Road.

What I like about Stall #4 is the fried kueh tiaw with tomato sos! You may also try other noodles from #4 as well, like crispy noodle or so.

As for Stall #15, I like its fried noodle which is full with sweet bean sauce! *slurp*

(3) Sin Lian Shin @ Green Road

At Sin Lian Shin, they are famous for their mee kolo. Frankly speaking, their mee kolo ain't like ordinary mee kolo, as their mee itself is chewy! I love it!

(4) Sunny Hill

At Sunny Hill, instead of getting rice or noodle, we will get home made ice-cream for dessert! Monday and Tuesday, you'll get strawberry flavour. Tuesday until Friday, you'll get pandan or corn flavour where as on Weekends, you'll get chocolate! Hmm, I only tried the strawberry flavour, it's silky creamy smooth! Nyummy~

(5) Song Kheng Hai Ground Food & Recreation Centre

Woot woot, I'm glad to see this place as we shared the same surname, no? Sang and Song are different? Crap, it's still 宋! LOL! Anyway, at Song Kheng Hai, do tryout the gong pia @ Stall #7 - Rihga. They serve 3 types of flavours, which are cheese, char siu and luncheon meat. All taste good but the recommended one will be the char siu!

(6) Yang Chun Tai @ Carpenter Street

Woohoo~ China Town! Head to Yang Chun Tai @ Carpenter Street or known as 亚答街, look for fish ball soup and the pork satay! Amazingly delicious!

(7) Siang Siang Corner

Alright, this can be tricky, because, there are a lot of Siang Siang Corners! Wherever it is, just hunt for a stall that fries yam cha kueh. Well, I used to call it fried carrot cake. It simply taste good! Hey look, no bean sprout yo!

(8) Goody Foody Cafe @ Stutong

As long as tasty, no matter how far it is, people will definitely travel and hunt for the tastiest laksa in Kuching @ Goody Foody Cafe, Stutong. To get here is easy, the land mark is Kuching Specialist Hospital! Uhhh... I hope it locates in front of my house, because it is superlicious!!!

(9) Jalan Arang

Besides the fried noodle with sweet soya sauce @ Stall #15, Hui Sing Hawker Centre, there is another place which I think is not bad! However, it's located inside a housing area in Jalan Arang, which I think not an easy place to find, no? Anyway, be there before 10pm, or else they will run out of noodles!

Soooooo, I think that's it. Actually there are lots more, but I only share whichever I think is worth to share! Do try them out if you had the chance. Well, these are just personal opinions, you may not like what I like, yet, no harm trying yo :)
