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

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

I tasted it and it sure swept me off my feet! There was this very strong taste of good quality traditional Foochow red wine and she certainly was very generous with the ginger – I absolutely enjoyed it, my new favourite, I must say and I sure would be making my way there again for more.

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!

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.

Chicken chop (RM9.50)…with mushroom sauce – I guess that alone would be quite filling already seeing that the serving here is usually quite big.

I went for the sizzling nasi biryani with beef rendang (RM15.90)…except that it was not sizzling when it was served but I really enjoyed it…a lot!

I ordered the tomato kway teow special that I had before not too long ago, the regular not the special and it was really good. The kway teow was so very well-fried…I could detect the wok hei fragrance as I loosened the strands of the noodles.

My girl wanted what I had the last time we were there, the very nice lamb chop that I felt was the best I had ever had too and that (RM26.90)…was what she had and yes, she did enjoy it.

I had their curry lamb rice (RM20.90)……which was all right as well. Their lamb curry…that took a long time coming, for reasons unknown, was nicer than what I had the other day but they certainly were not very generous with the meat and it was not spicy at all. I was thinking of the very much nicer authentic North Indian mutton biryani here the whole time for just 10 sen more, RM21.00 and the biryani rice is anytime a lot nicer than the plain rice with a sprinkling of fried shallots or whatever on top…or the just-as-nice Bangladeshi lamb curry (RM19.00 only with rice) here. The brinjal fritters and the onion rings failed to save the day – I remember enjoying the rice sets here (RM16.90) and what they have by the side there a whole lot more.

I asked for the big one (RM5.00)…the one with the salted egg yolk inside…and a bit of meat, not a lot but at least, there was meat unlike some around here that I had had the displeasure of eating. I also tasted a bit of the shitake mushroom as I was eating but what I loved most of all was the glutinous rice – not undercooked and hard and not overcooked and soggy and over-sticky, just perfect.

The chicken curry and the pickles (RM6.50)…were all right as well but if it is the authentic Indian biryani rice with all the fragrant spices and what not, then perhaps, you should try elsewhere. This one is quite typical of the nasi biryani at the Malay shops and stalls, nice colour, tastes great but not quite there.

Whichever one they were, both were really very nice, nicer than those from the guy who was here before. The rice noodle roll was so thin, so fine and translucent, so silky smooth, almost like our pian sip (meat dumpling) skin and the sambal that came with it was so good it brought the taste to a whole new level. One bone to pick would be how they were not so generous with the sambal – the next time I drop by here for this, I certainly would ask for more!

My cousin loves the kampua here and so do many other people. I’m not such a huge fan since they’re not the most authentic version. Rasa Sayang uses the curly kolo mee noodles and minced meat.

I ordered the kampua mee (RM3.30)…at the stall there…and yes, it was indeed very good! I would say that it was as original and authentic as it could get, just like what we enjoyed all throughout our growing up years.

Well, to make my dream come true in some way, we ordered their venison/deer meat with ginger and dried chili…and yes, it was good. My girl sure enjoyed it and I did not even know she was that into venison.

Now, talking about history repeating itself, I had the roast duck kampua mee then and somehow or other, I ended up ordering it again (RM7.50)… Yes, it was very nice and I did enjoy it. I let my girl try the siew yoke and she liked it so much that she insisted on buying some home for dinner. The roast duck was good too…

Yes, I would say that I did enjoy it but no, it was nothing like any kolo mee that I had had before in Kuching or anywhere else. Like what the guy in the video clip said, it was suan suan tian tian (sour sour sweet sweet). I might have eaten kolo mee that was sweet because of the red char siew sauce added but it would not be sour unless I poured in the vinegar in the pickled chili. I loved the fried pian sip (dumplings) and there was REAL char siew and of course, I enjoyed the innards in the special.

Unfortunately, what I was served (RM14.90, two pieces chicken) sure did not look as great…The soup was like the mushroom gravy they usually serve with chops and the bread was kind of soggy, not nice and crusty. The chicken was all right but at the end of the day, it was what it was – fried chicken.

Yes, the mee (kampua mee) was nice but I don’t think the taste was quite like what I used to buy from the stall near my house. Maybe it is because somebody else is making it or the taste has evolved into something quite different over the years, I really can’t tell. The pian sip soup was great too and I did enjoy the coffee…

In the end, I decided to give the beef noodles (RM7.00)…I would not say it was not nice, just that it did not have the old-time beef flavour that we loved so much way back then but I would say in no uncertain terms that I was not at all in favour of the rampant use of plastic – I do not recall the father using plastic during his time but of course, in those days, plastic anything was quite rare, almost unheard of. We certainly were a lot more environment-friendly in my younger days.

I would say it was nice but I thought the soup…was kind of cloudy, not all that clear and when somebody had ordered so much, the guy could have been a bit more generous with his very nice chili dip. There was so little of it, probably enough for a regular bowl so with all the extras, I think that would call for double the amount.

Leong Leong Mango Ice The one here (also RM10.00)…was good too and because this one was served in a bowl, it was easier to mix the mango on top with the shaved ice and evaporated milk below to give the latter a bit more taste unlike the other one where when one would be eating just the ice and the milk, one probably wouldn’t enjoy it as much.

I saw that there was liver and beef tripe too so I had the kampua kosong (without meat)…with this big bowl of liver soup…which was very good. I could not detect the traditional Foochow red wine in it but it was very strong with the taste of the liver plus I liked the special chili dip that came with it. The set was RM5.00 so with the drink, the breakfast I had that morning was RM6.00 altogether.
