KOLO MEE & BEEF SOUP @ LOONG SIANG YEN CAFÉ, JALAN UPLAND, KUCHING

Kolo Mee Kosong (Plain Noodle)


This is the cousin of Ah Guan from Nyan Shin Café; so it's by no coincidence that the Taiwanese Stew beef looks and tastes similar, down to the tomato slices. No, it's not a copycat. This stall is popular in its on right for its own-made Kolo Mee. A friend, who introduces me to this place, complains that its potion is small, and a double order of noodle is required for fulfilling meal. But when you see the proprietor, you'd understand why. He reminds me of L.S. Lowry's paintings.



Taiwanese Stew Beef


I'm not a fan of Nyan Shin's beef. Ditto here. Fear not, there's another version from which one can order. (See below)


Home-Brewed Stew Beef


Another thing that intrigues me is the Laksa stall occupying the front corner of the coffee shop. Of all my visits there, the old man running the stall is always cleaning up, packing to go. Business must be good, or is it the Laksa?


RM2.50 Laksa


I finally got a taste of the Laksa one early morning. It has only one price tag on it; RM2.50... and its colonial! All I can say, for that price you can a bountiful serving of Beehoon, chicken shred and tiny shrimps, and Belacan Sambal too! Apart from that, it's downhill all the way.

ABOUT THIS BLOG

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!
