This was definitely a wonderful trip and opportunity to peek into some of the wonders of Kuching…. hopefully will get to see and experience more of Sarawak, land of the hornbills in near future……
These are 6 eateries where we ate during our trip to Kuching…
Semenggoh Nature Reserve Tour Sarawak Cultural Village Tour Fairy and wind Caves Adventure
56 Hotel Kuching is a 3 star hotel that distinguishes itself with an architectural approach that is influenced by unique geometrical patterns found in the beaded accessories of Sarawak’s Dayak tribes
The pork dumpling is made of a trio combination of pork, shrimp, and fish which has a rather hard yet moist texture (feels like chewing onto a Hong Kong dim sum beef balls), delicious aftertaste still lingering inside your mouth right after savoring it, just hard to resists if you’re not ordering another plate of it!
We ordered a plate of roast chicken with rice RM5.00 which includes a chopped big fat juicy chicken thigh with fragrant rice and soup of the day. The chicken is succulent as expected while the taste is considered one of its kind, apart from a common mild spices scent, it also has a very sweet-scented (caramelized) charcoal burned smell on it, tastes even more delicious while having it with their homemade chili sauce! 😉
The outcome was a real shocker, the coffee has a strong aromatic coffee bean smell which we have yet tasted before (we’ve been told that this is pure Sarawak Coffee Bean Brew), very mild bitter aftertaste which makes it easily acceptable for an amateur like us, overall very smooth and we keep craving for more on the next coming days! 😉
Our personal suggestion would be; Kek Lapis Original, Kek Lapis Prune, Kek Lapis Sisik Ikan (sweet and sour haw flakes), and Kek Lapis Cheese Oreo! 😉
The lamb shank is cooked to perfection, very soft, moist, and juicy, topped with sweet and sour borscht gravy, definitely a great duo to have with those plain buttery homemade mashed potatoes. Arghh, just hope that they would add up that few slices of bread so we would sum it up as utmost perfecto! 😉
The roast duck meat is super tender juicy and well-seasoned, won’t get bored no matter how many pieces you are having, while the roast pork is succulent (pork belly part) and has a golden crisp on the skin layer, super yummy and barely disappoints any meat carnivore like us! 😉
Salted Egg Crab RM48.00 (800g) – Can’t go wrong since they’re still swimming happily in the water tank minutes ago, taste sweet and salty while crab texture is at its finest, best dish to have if you have the leisure time to savor em thoroughly.
Visitors are able to gaze at the snapping jaws, cold menacing eyes, sharp pointed teeth and powerful lashing tails of the crocs within a very short distance – most of them just laying dead not moving so it’s perfect chance to take time and learn about different croc’s habitat while taking some fancy pictures! 😉
The texture of Cornetti Honey Butter Croissant (RM 9.90) was lovely - flaky at the exterior with a nice honeycomb air pockets interior, though stronger butter scent would have made the croissant perfect.
