FOOCHOW NOODLES @ LEE COFFEE SHOP , LORONG 1,JALAN SONG THIAN CHEOK , KUCHING

Fried Tomato Yee Meen (Deep-Fried Noodle)

This is a 3-4 shop lots eatery in town, with stalls offering a range of food, from good to mediocre. This particular stall at the back-end corner of the shop does Foochow fried/cooked noodles. However, the one above is not a Foochow creation but more of a Kuching's staple fried noodle; it's those uncooked Kolo Mee deep-fried first before being cooked in the tomato ketchup sauce.

Double Cooked Noodle (Char-Zi Mee)


The Char-Zi Mee is the fat Hokkien noodle fried once with dark soy sauce, and then doused with pork broth to form a noodle soup. Basic ingredients added into the soup are sliced pork, liver, shrimps, crab sticks and Chai-Sim (local green).


Chow-Chai Hung Ngan

This is another Foochow specialty: Sour Hung Ngan (thick round vemecilli). The preserved Chow-Chai gives it its distinct taste. Tomato and sometimes vinegar are added to give it extra sourness.

Rating from top to bottom: Good, So-So & Not-So-Good.

There's this shop called Missing...err...actually it's Mei Sing or sth...in that horrijible place upnorth that serves rather nice Char-zi Mee and Chow-chai Hung Ngan. They are vvv kiam siap with their chili padi though. And the CCHN special costs RM6.00!! Nothing very special ler, except that they add everything imaginable and edible from inside the piggy's tummy. And each piece is like 'pi sai'.

RM6 for pi sai?!!! for that amount i usually use minsion or kim joo as a yardstick. the rich ingredients are immaterial, it's the broth that counts.

The broth is superlicious! But having to pay RM6 for it is a tad too expensive lah.

have you met the RM15 and counting one?

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!
