Kuching’s Must Try Unique Dishes

Filed under: Eating Out,Travel — agnes @ 12:50 pm

Mee Kolo
Mee Kolo Kuching is just as healthy as Pansor Manuk. The locally produced springy and chewy noodle is fine and served generously in quantity. Watch out for soya sauce condiment that accompanies Mee Kolo. I tried a few version of Mee Kolo, some soya sauce is very hot.

Rice Noodle in Tomato Gravy
Noodle or rice noodle in tomato gravy is simple and easy to digest in hot weather. Surprisingly this dish is not found in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya. In Kuching, noodle or rice noodle in tomato gravy is a normal dish in any local café. This is an appetizing dish that suits all ages.


Chicken fever in Kuching

I love chicken dishes in Kuching. Besides Pansoh Manuk, my favourites are also fluffy Nasi Beriyani with fried chicken at Bukhari, Jalan Satok. Chinese chicken rice at a chicken rice shop in front of Grand Continental Hotel.

Kuching’s Pansoh Manuk

Filed under: Eating Out,Travel — agnes @ 3:48 pm

I had Pansoh Manuk (bamboo chicken with fragrant rice) for lunch at hotel. I didn’t bring my camera, what a waste. Back to Pansoh Manuk. Healthy as it is high in protein and little fat as chicken cooked in adequate amount of water boiled together with  local fresh herbs. Side dishes such as Acar Sayur whets appetite and Milin stir fried with Belachan. Bario rice is served with Pansoh Manuk, is less starchy than Thai fragrant rice but twice the price. I managed to find few links on Pansoh Manuk.

Fascinating Malaysia

Kokkieblanda (is this Dutch?)


I heard this in Kuching

Filed under: Kitchen,Travel — agnes @ 3:34 pm

A local friend told me there are 2 types of popular edible fern (is it a type of fern?) here. Cheaper and bigger one is Pucuk Paku and the other twice expensive and finer is Milin (Mandarin: Mei Ling). Pucuk Paku is fibrous and obvious “greenish” after taste. Milin on the other hand is crispy, sweet and tender.

Aerial view, airport and river side view.

Satok weekend market
It was such an amazing experience at Satok weekend market. Sarawakians are very clean and neat Malaysians. Satok market is such a clean place to do marketing. It is a good example for open wet markets in Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur. I has a wonderful time savoring the visual feast of local produce. Take time to enjoy Satok pictures.

Lost But Not Completely

Filed under: Personal — agnes @ 7:20 am

I lost my voice but have not lost any internet connection to update this blog. I am so frustrated that I can’t talk at all. Not long ago I dreamt I lost my voice, struggled to force words out of my throat. Today it is a reality… I’m sad but glad my mind and fingers are still here to blog ;-).

Chocolate: See’s Candy

Filed under: Eating Out — agnes @ 3:21 pm

MalaysiaBest blogged on Theme Tuesday – Chocolate Desserts reminded me of See’s Candy which I had in Hong Kong. The luxurious and velvety melt on tongue experience is still fresh. I would reward myself again on a piece of See’s Candy after seeing success on my assignments.
