NOODLE @ SIN HIN LUNG CAFÉ, JLN. TUN AHMAD ZAIDI ADRUCE, KUCHING

Tomato Koay Teow

This is a quite late afternoon lunch... not very late... about 2:30 p.m. Mary was about to clean up for the day. We ordered 3 different noodle dishes: Tomato Koay Teow, Dry Fried Hokkien Noodle, and Foochow Char Zi Noodle.

Dry Fried Hokkien Noodle

What came to the table were huge servings of noodle - about 1½ times the normal serving. We told her it was huge, and her reply was that she thought we might be awfully hungry at such time. Her generosity stemmed from the fact that we had known her since her family started their coffee shop at Chonglin Apartment, Green Road. Since their children decided to find greener pasture in Singapore, the couple were put out to pasture. But boredom at home brought them back to the grindstone, albeit on a smaller scale (tiny back kitchen) and shorter hours (up to after lunch time). Their present location is opposite Behshi meat store, before Digi office.

Foochow Char Zi Noodle

What these couple specialize in are Foochow Zi-Char noodle of all types. No Kampua or Mee Suah from them though; these are sold by the other 2 stalls (one at the front and one in the middle). For a RM3.50 noodle, you can't expect much out of it in terms of the ingredients used. They are your average Foochow fare done under competent old hands.

Hi Kongkay, I terribly miss this couple's fried food at Sin Hin Lung. They have moved away some 1 or more years already. They used to be the stall I frequent for lunch, due to its location near my office and of course, the GENEROSITY of the portion they provide. It's really satisfying.

Have you any idea on their current location? Or have they retired?

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!
