TOMATO KOAY TEOW @ KIM JOO, JALAN EWE HAI, KUCHING



In Kuching, if you're to order a saucy Fried Koay Teow (flat rice noodle), chances are likely that you'll be presented with a choice of 'tomato' or 'Cantonese'; the initial one comes with a tomato ketchup base sauce, and the latter with a 'flowery' egg concoction. However, if you're to order anything in between, chances are you'll be laugh off the coffee shop, as I found out at one corner coffee house at Hui Sing Garden. "Can't take out the ketchup or egg", she said. Enough said.

The Kim Joo's version of the tomato koay teow has both the egg and ketchup. The egg is first fried with the flat noodle until set and scooped out; the fish slices and shrimps together with vegetable are then fried before incorporating the tomato ketchup sauce. Thus you don't get a messy sauce. Ain't she a beaut (above)?

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!
