Kuching's Food Hunt & Shopping


      


I already shared the city tour, cultural village and the frog race. Now here is another post for my food hunting journey in Kuching. This is the first restaurant that we visited on our first day after touched down at Kuching airport.

我已经分享了城市游览,文化村和青蛙比赛。这里我就会分享在Kuching的寻美食记。第一天飞抵Kuching飞机场后,我们便前往这里享用午餐。



It is at the corner side.
它坐落在角落。


the menu and pricing 
餐单和价格

The must eat in Sarawak is Laksa Sarawak and Mee Kolok.
在砂劳越必尝的是Laksa Sarawak和Kolok 面。




But since they are not selling Laksa Sarawak, we ordered a plate of Mee Jawa instead.

但是由于他们没有卖Laksa Sarawak,我们就叫一盘Mee Jawa

 
and a plate of Mee Kolok. 
和一盘Kolok面。

This is my second time having Mee Kolok. I can't give any comment for the taste wise. Every restaurant has its own flavour and own version. For Mee Jawa, I prefer those I eat regularly in night market KL.

这是我第二次享用Kolok面。在味道方面我没有任何意见。每个餐厅都有它各自的版本和味道。对于Mee Jawa,我还是较喜欢常在吉隆坡夜市内吃的那个。


At night, we are brought to the tour company office cum lodge for dinner. Look at the lamp, it is made with coconut, it's so nice ^^ 

晚上,我们被带到旅游公司及住宿享用晚餐。看看上面那灯,他是以椰子做的,非常漂亮 ^^




 


It is really a wonderful night. We are being entertained with great food,beer and wine! 

 那是非常美妙的夜晚。我们有美食,美酒相伴!



Next morning (the second day), I walked alone to explore the food myself. Asking stranger ( a few students) on the road where to find food...and finally I came to this cafe.

隔天早上(第二天),我独自一人去探索美食。询问在路上的陌生人哪里有美食吃...最终来到这间咖啡店。


I ordered a bowl of prawn noodle. It tastes nice ^^ 
我叫了一碗下面。味道很不错 ^^


After breakfast, we headed to fresh market to buy some food to cook at cultural village.  

早餐后,我们便到菜市集购买些食物去文化村煮。


Here is the place where we need to travel around 30 minutes to reach. The food price is so cheap! RM2.50! OMG! I can't believe my eyes. The food is so much cheaper outside the city.

这地方需要大概30分钟车程才抵达。这里的食物是超级便宜的!RM2.50!天啊!我简直不敢相信我的眼睛。这里的食物价格比城市便宜许多。


The third day morning, I also walked alone to search some great food in the city. Accidentally bumped into this restaurant when I passed by and saw lots of people dining here. 

一样第三天清晨,我独自一人在这城市找美食。 意外中,我来到这间咖啡店,看到有许多人在里面享用早点。


Through my instinct, those restaurants with lots people sure the food is rather cheap or delicious. So without thinking too much, I walked in there. 

以我的直觉,那些很多人在里面吃的咖啡店一定是便宜或者美味。所以不想太多,我也跑进去试试。


While waiting for my food, I saw more and more people coming in until it's full and the late comers have to line up outside for seats. Okay, I was lucky and blessed enough that came in without standing outside to wait for long.

在等待我的食物上桌时,我看到陆陆续续好多人走进来直到座位满为止。所有迟来的都必须站在外面等候位子。好的,我是非常幸运的,因为来的时候不需要排队,直接进来就有位子坐。


Here comes my Mee Kolok. It's a edited version as I asked don't put any pork or chicken inside. Thus, the lady boss put fish for me.


这就是我的Kolok面。这是改良版的因为我交代说我不要猪肉或者鸡肉在内。所以老板娘就放鱼肉给我。



And together she send me a bowl of soup as well!
他也送上一碗汤呢! 

When I paid the bill, I asked how many years Kim Joo opened. The lady at the counter answered it is 50 years old now! That is an old shop and that's why it has lots of customers dining here.

当我付费的时候,我问锦裕开了多久。在柜台的女生答我说开了有50年了!这是一家老店,这就说明为何他有那么多顾客观光的原因。


After that, I strolled along the street and found an interesting souvenir shop. It is a souvenir shop without any name.The salesgirl said it is no 65, a way people remember it.

过后,我就在这街上走走和发现一间有趣的纪念品店。这是一家没有名字的纪念品店。 销售小姐说这间店是65号,一种记住这店的方法。

 


They are selling tribal costumes as well. 
 他们售卖种族服饰等。

 

 

antique camera 
古董相机

 

cute keychain 
可爱的锁匙圈





another nice and cute decoration for house made with coconut 
另个很漂亮可爱,用椰子自制的家里摆饰

 

 


beaded hat... must needs lot of time and patience making it
珠子帽...需要好多的时间和耐心去制作

 

Next, I saw this corner shop that selling 'kantong'. 
过后,我就看到角落的这间售卖'kantong'的店面。 

 

I was curious about it and therefore I came in to have a try. 
我很好奇是什么所以我就跑去试试。

 

When I was at Kim Joo, I already noticed a bunch of students doing some food project here. I met them again. Thus, I went in front and asked what was going on and I got a list of recommendation must try in Kuching! 

当我在锦裕的时候,我就留意到一群学生在做一些食物计划。在这里我又碰上他们了。所以我就走前去问什么事情,且得到一份在Kuching必尝的美食名单!

 

Now I share with you. I hope to try all in the list for my next visit.
现在我就跟你们分享。 我希望在我下次到访的时候可以享用完单上的全部食物。


This is Kantong. It is almost same pronunciation with Malay word 'gantung' which mean hang. The boss said this is the ice cream they having in old days!  We need to dip with the sweet syrup in the cup when eating the ice cream.

这就是Kantong.跟马来文的'gantung'同音,意思是‘挂/掉’着。老板说这是他童年吃的冰淇淋。我们必须一边吃这冰淇淋一边点在杯里的甜酱。

 

All the pricing for the ice cream.  
冰淇淋的全部价格

  
 

Besides the sweet stuff, they are selling kuih muih as well. 
除了甜点,他们也售卖糕点。

  

OMG! They are my favourite! But as I already having my breakfast, I'm full. 

天啊!这些都是我的最爱!不过因为我已经吃了早餐,所以已经满了。


Here is another place that being recommended for great food! I was quite full that day and in rush, therefore I did not have any opportunity yet to try the food here. I will try to make it in my next trip.

这里就是其中一个推荐前往寻找美食的地方!当天吃到很饱而且也很赶,所以没有机会在这尝尝美食。下次到访,一定来这。

Remember I told you that I took a boat ride to opposite shore in previous post? One of the reason to dig my time been here was to buy the layered cake from a recommended shop by Kuching folks.

记得上次我告诉你求哦坐船去对岸吗?在上机前挤出些时间来这里的其中一个原因是购买Kuching居民推荐的店面购买千层糕。


 A lot of variety
好多的选择




 
There are samples for us to try before purchase. They are so colourful!

这里有些样品让我们在还没购买前尝尝。他们都好缤纷色彩!

 
All the names of the layered cakes are so funny! Ombak (wave) Rindu (miss) is the title of a local film which I got to know later. Okay, if you missing someone and you hardly tell her/him, then buy this and give her/him! xoxo

这里的千层糕名字都非常有趣!Ombak(浪) Rindu (想念)是一个本地电影的名字,这是我后来才知道的。好的,若你很想念一个人,然后你很难告诉他的话,那么就买这个吧! xoxo 

 As I no idea which one to choose, I ask for recommendation from the worker there. And she recommended me to buy Ombak Rindu! Oh yeah, it is really good! Must buy this when you are here!

因为不知道要选哪一个,所以就问这里的员工意见。他就推荐我买Ombak Rindu! 哦,还真的很好吃!来这里必定要买这口味的!


Next I purchase one that's not recommended. It's blueberry chocolate. But I tell you, this is disappointing. I can't taste any blueberry or chocolate taste in it.

然后我也买了一个不是推荐品。这是蓝莓巧克力口味。不过我告诉你,这实在让我失望。我根本尝不出有任何的蓝莓或者巧克力口味。

Tune Hotel

#gilabola by Joe Flizzow




I am not a football fan but I do take note sometimes on the celebrity football players like David Beckham and Ronaldo. I have friends who are really passionate about football till staying up late just to watch the match (#gilabola). FIFA World Cup 2014 is going on now. Let see what happening.





10 Funniest Soccer Photos – World Cup 2010 Pictures




I do watch sometimes. But what I want to know is not the result, it is the funny action done by the players during the match. Okay no matter what reason you interested to watch FIFA 2014, take a break to watch the music video by Joe Flizzow.






Now you can sing along to the music video! Learn the words in the lyrics video here.



The lyrics talk about the typical habits of ‘football mad’ fans of all ages and origins, like staying up all night, face painting and more.
Join the craze in the Football Mad Territory! Make sure you also share all your football-mad moments with the hashtag #gilabola on Instagram! Who knows, your submissions could even appear in their next video.


p/s: sorry for not replying comments for long time as I am with media trip now. Hopefully I will have more free time to reply. Lastly, hope you all will leave a comment for me. I will have a look at all but takes time to reply.
