KOLO MEE @ SIN LIAN SHIN, JALAN GREEN, KUCHING


There are a few noodle shops along the Green Road stretch. So I don't know whether this is the famous one or not 'cos 2 shops away, at the corner, is another one equally packed. I guess this is the more famous one 'cos at times it puts out another stall at the 5-foot-way to cater for take-aways during busy period. I use the term 'famous' loosely because in Miri there's a noodle stall that bills itself as the Green Road Noodle Stall. You go figure!

There are only so many superlatives you can throw at a plain ol' looking bowl of noodle. What can I say? Aficionados can be counted amongst the inhabitants of this enclave, and it has quite a following; in days of old, before people were more mobile, this area is considered out of town already when it's in fact about 1½ mile out of town center.

Bee Tai Bak Soup (Lau Su Fang)

To get a better perspective of the noodle here, let me relate this: The other day we were having breakfast here, and another acquaintance joined in. He is a big guy who seems to be able to devour anything and everything, and obviously hasn't been to this shop before. One gulp of his Kolo Mee, he exclaimed: "Bay-Tan-Chiak Á!!" I rest my case.

Dry Bee Tai Bak Pang Ang (Char Sui Oil)

*I might be accused of being bias 'cos once upon a time I stayed in Poh Kwong Park, which is about less than 3 minutes' drive from this place.

Actually they have another franchise at MJC expect if not wrong. Just around the corner. Heard is the brother's stall but at nite will see the guy around as well. The noodles to me nice but in terms of pricing kinda pricey nowadays.

i've not found any outstanding stalls at MJC, although i've been there mostly during the day. i might scout around there this weekend.

The Miri one is betul-betul Green Road's klm. Manned by the doter. No longer there though. It's somewhere at Padungan now, I heard.

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!
