DINNER @ TING'S NOODLE HOUSE, JALAN BAN HOCK, KUCHING

Ang-Chow Braised Pork Belly

It was after 7:30 p.m. when we stepped into this eatry for dinner. It was empty except for a table of ladies, who had obviously finished their meal, chatting away, and the boss was sitting at the counter, still suited up in his chef's attire - I think they were quite prepared to call it a night.

We ordered from its ala carte menu, which has 3 columns consisting of vegetables, meats and soup. This was what had one meal and 3 vegetable dishes. The chef is Taiwan-trained with a Foochow background.

The Ang-Chow (lees) pork belly was the highlight; except for its red color, there isn't any hint of the Ang-Chow - pretty good. The Tofu Kelp Clear Soup (left) was rather bland, but I'm sure someone can vouch for its nourishing factor. The
Fried Tau-Cheo Long Beans With Minced Pork in contrast has the flavor and aroma of the bean paste sinked into the meat and beans; the thin slices of pork fat was an added bonus. The Stir-Fried Spinach With Garlic was another plain Jane.

After we finished, the waitress was in a hurry to get rid of us by clearing our table as we were finishing, and it was just after 8. The bill, which includes 4 drinks and 4 rice, came to RM57, which we think is excessive, considering that the majority of the dishes are vegetables.

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!
