It has been unbearably hot here lately and the cold and refreshing pomelo salad (RM8.00)…that we had was definitely a welcome relief.

The mum ordered the garlic naan (RM5.00)…to share and the chicken masala (RM13.50)…for the gravy to dip the roti in and the meat.

The giant udang galah (freshwater prawns)…that we also had on her birthday and I loved it so so much, a lot more than the lobster that we had that night and lining the side of the platter were these birthday eggs…served with some very nice special sauce.

We also ordered the lamb with lime sauce…and I only found out that night that they had mayonnaise in it with the lime. It was nice but I think it was nicer when we had it before – the meat was not grilled that well enough.

I saw these balitongs (siput sudut) masak lemak (cooked with santan/coconut milk) and I sure enjoyed them so much when we were here for their buka puasa buffet around the end of May so of course, I could not resist asking for that…and also a helping of the prawns.

The black pepper lamb (RM22.00)…was certainly an improvement from how I remembered it to be. My late father used to buy home from here for everyone in the house to eat, those years when my late mum was bedridden. This time around, the meat was very nice and tender and unlike before, the sauce did not taste like what came out of the bottle like what one would get when eating that once-a-year burger in the hope that one would strike it rich and be very prosperous!

I also ordered their seafood pasta aglio olio (RM28.00)…and yes, this was very good, very generous with the herbs used and that gave it a really nice fragrance and flavour. They use their own-made pasta here – I always see them sharing the photographs on their Facebook page and it looked like there were two types in what we had – yellow and green…

Ordered their famous sweet and sour fish. This is o chio (ikan bawal hitam) for RM 26. It’s a pretty good sized fish and it’s been deep fried so all the bones and fins are edible. I love their sweet and sour sauce too

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.

We saw majority of tables seated ordered this gigantic and quirky looking fried thingy, which is Oyster Omelette in Topspot way. It is interesting aesthetically but nothing wonderful in terms of taste. If we were to describe the taste, it is like a greasy flour cracker with some dried oysters stuffed within which needs the sauce to rescue the flavour. However it is worth ordering for the sake of trying.

Midin! RM 14. This is a must eat in Sarawak. It’s a toothsome jungle fern usually cooked with belacan. This one is cooked with Shaoxing wine. We both liked it but it was served last and we were so full then we couldn’t enjoy the midin.

We should have stopped there but I saw they had ladies’ fingers and I asked for that too, fried with sambal hay bee/udang kering (dried prawns)…and it was really good – I am pretty sure we would want to order that again the next time we drop by.

My girl wanted the pasta al nero di seppia, the one with squid ink (RM24.00)…for what she called “the smell of the sea”. Yes, we all agreed that it was very nice, despite the colour and no, there was no unpleasant “chou chor” or fishy smell. I sure would not mind having that again the next time we drop by here. As a matter of fact, among the customers who came in after us, there was a big group and they too asked for the same. It sure is rather popular, it seems.

Sarawak Laksa has its advantage aesthetically compared to its Peninsular counterpart though. A traditional bowl of Sarawak Laksa usually served with rice vermicelli, then topped with omelette strip, prawns, shredded chicken, beansprouts, coriander and lime. Poh Lam Sarawak Laksa (RM 7) has everything on the essential list of a decent Sarawak Laksa, and comply perfectly to both taste and aesthetic factor.

Kolok Mee (RM4.30) So nice we almost ordered another bowl. Instead, we got a bowl of wantan because that wantan is really glorious - the meat fillings are so good, the strong porky flavours with very thin wantan skin. It's so good we don't mind a few bowls of that!

The rice was not lemak, only very slightly and the salted fish was like it had been fried a long time ago… The sambal was all right, thankfully as it did help make the rice more palatable to some extent and the fried chicken was…like fried chicken.

Yes, it was very nice. The noodles were perfectly done, not too soft, not soggy and not hard either. It sure tasted great and while I was enjoying it, I could detect the taste of pork fat crusts…and true enough, I managed to locate a few in the dish.
  • wordpress.com
  • 2020-11-02 00:00:00+00:00
That obviously was not very much so I ordered a plate of kampua mee kosong, tossed in chili sauce (RM2.30)…from the stall at the food court (No.2). I did not want any meat as it was a Friday and I was abstaining from that. I had it before and yes, the one here is pretty decent, nothing to make it stand out above the rest but everytime I go there, I see a lot of people going for it but on my part, I don’t think I’ll be going back for it again here unless they stop using plastic to serve the noodles.

We love their beef pies a lot so I ordered one (RM9.00)…to share for the simple reason that we all had our own individual orders and yes, it was, as always, very nice. I do wish though that they would do something about the presentation, some lettuce and cherry tomatoes by the side or a couple of slices of tomato and cucumber perhaps to give it a bit of colour, if nothing else, instead of serving it on its own just like that…and they could have used a smaller plate, a saucer perhaps – the pie is not that big!

I had the Shiro ramen (RM12.80)…Everything was drowned in the soup, completely submerged, so I had to meticulously bring the onsen egg, the fried chicken cutlets and the noodles to the surface to take a photograph of it and no, I did not enjoy it much. The broth was way too thick and rich, rather strong on the taste of garlic AND sesame oil

Their braised beef short ribs (RM26.00)…which was very nice, very tasty with the delightful mushroom gravy but though it wasn’t tough, quite tender, in fact, it was not fall-off-the-bone. I certainly would love it a lot more if it had been so. Probably it was because we were early, soon after they opened for the day, and I had to wait a VERY long time for the dish to be served. It probably would have been nicer if they had cooked it a little bit longer.

I asked for a recommendation and they unreservedly told me the Fish Fillet Burger with Egg and Cheese (RM 3.90) was their bestseller. This actually tasted pretty good! I liked the crunchy fish fillet and the creamy egg with the pillowy soft chu nu miang. Nice!

She had her favourite sambal fried kway teow here…with a special request for it to be extra spicy, of course and I ordered the same for my girl but I asked for it to be fried “white” or without soy sauce, that is…She did not seem to enjoy it so much though and was struggling with it and in the end, I think she barely finished half of it. I did try a bit and I thought it was all right just that it was not quite the same – I guess we are more used to having soy sauce in our char kway teow and would prefer it that way.

Minus the fragrance of the spices, it was more like plain soy sauce broth. Otherwise, everything was fine with it – let’s just say this is one place to consider if you are in this part of town and you feel like having kueh chap. I had the special (RM8.00) but I asked for an extra stewed egg so that was RM9.00 altogether.

We all had the nasi ayam penyet (RM5.50)…and yes, it was very good – I loved it and I liked how the vegetables were lightly blanched – they would just serve them raw at most, if not all, of the other places and I am not entirely fond of long beans that way.

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! 😉

Their coffee is very cheap - you get a decent mug of coffee for like what, RM5? In Klang Valley, it's double the price! You can also get a Mocha if you are not a fan of coffee.

Sarawak Kolomee (second famous food in the shop) RM5.00 – dried thin noodles serves with red pork slices and prawn. The noodle itself is springy while covered with fragrant oily shallot and onion flavor, has a very smooth texture which makes you keep slurping for more similar like having a bowl of Indomee (but premium ones in this case), while the generous amount of pork slices and prawn toppings just made the overall kolomee even more enjoyable. 😉

I remember having the kolo mee here before and it was good and that morning, I asked for the special (RM6.00)…and even though I would not say it was the best in town, it was definitely kolo mee, not kampua mee in disguise.

If you were expecting the sweet and sour spiciness of the famous tom yam soup of Thailand, you would be disappointed because this was a home made version. Nevertheless, the thick broth was fragrant, the local big prawn was fresh and the thick noodles were tangy.
