A NIGHT @ THE KUCHING FOOD FESTIVAL


This is a yearly two-week (I think) event hosted in conjunction with city day. This is my first time in many years because of this blog. In the early years, rental of the stall was free, and contribution was up to the discretion of individual stall. Nowadays it's a money making event, rental's up and so is the price of the food sold. Parking is bad and so is the security of the parking area. A friend has a wheel stolen from her Myvi, even when she parked under the lamp post.

Most of the stalls here have businesses in the city, and that's why I don't come here for the inflated prices. However, there are a few gems here like the fried dumplings sellers, who just mastered its making in Miri and haven't sourced out a place in the city yet to set up stall. The Otak-Otak is another one. The Korean stall has a restaurant at the 3rd. Mile Area. The biscuit is quite similar to the Chinese variety. The chicken skewers are quite garlicky like Kim Chi minus the sourness. The chicken nugget with curry leaves is another Taiwanese creation. It's one of those Ku-Ku Quai-Quai things that makes coming to this food fair worth the while even though expensive.

if you're a tourist, the festival is a good intro. to what kuching has to offer in terms of food, but not the true picture though.

it's the first few stalls as you enter from the swimming pool entrance. i think it's next to the sharkfins soup stall. an elderly couple sell them.

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!
