LOH MEE (BRAISED NOODLE) @ MERRYPARK CAFÉ, TABUAN JAYA, KUCHING


This is another specialty of Penang Chew: Loh Mee. It's supposed to be starchy soup made from braised pork sauce. But nowadays, the short-cut method of using 5-spice on soy sauce pork broth is used for this commercial endeavor; there's no braised meat in sight, but only slices of boiled white lean pork. The soup has just a hint of the 5-spice flavor in the starchy soup with a spoonful of lard thrown in. This Loh Mee usually comes with sliced meat, shrimps, kangkong and ½ hard boiled egg (missing from my order).

This is not the best Loh Mee I've tasted, but sad to say, this noodle doesn't have a great following in Kuching. I can't think of another stall selling this in town, unless someone can point me to some others.

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!
