Yet another Nasi Kandar restaurant! This one is not far from Sogo; and this one has a hotel by the same name to boot. From the restaurant's signboard, it advertises itself as Penang Nasi Kandar. I don't know the whole story, but business must be good for it to venture into the hospitality trade.

I had plain rice with lamb curry, with chillied eggplant and turmeric pickled vegetables (cucumber, carrot and jicama [bangkuang/yambean]). It's pretty good.... better than the last one.

Sadly, I can't say the same about the lamb chop I had in the evening at the classic Coliseum Café at Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman.
It was no better than the so-called 'Western Food' offered by Kuching's coffee shop. The ancient 'Ah Pek' staff of a waiter was so impatient with our orders, he hopped to another table before coming back to us again. It's not worth the price for a bit of nostalgia! Interestingly, the Coliseum Café has a 'CH' insignia on its wooden panel, which I take to mean Coliseum Hotel. Do I detect a reversal of fortune? There is no hotel in sight. Well, this is my tale of two eateries.

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
