TEA @ STATION 1 CAFÉ, 3RD. EXCHANGE, KUCHING

Vegetable Pancake Roll

When you're feeling peckish in the afternoon, who're you gonna call? Station 1 Café, that's who!!! The name may not tingle within one ear shot, but it'll be etched on your memory when you through with the place. So remember that name!

It's not exactly a new haunt, but having discovered 3rd. exchange during the day time, we've been back a few times to try out the various outlets within the vicinity. This quaint little outlet is run by a petite lady, who has a panache for food...


... her cooking is an amalgamation of east and west style... more like Taiwanese chic food brought to a local level - chop-suey to some, fusion to others. Thankfully the mish-mash gels well in taste and in style, without being pretentious.

Popiah Hofun

Take the pancake egg roll, it's a take on the Taiwanese snack favorite, with a twist of the ingredients used, and finally a dash of Japanese obsession added - the omnipresent mayo. You'd be confronted with thinly sliced local vegetable with ham bits, plus carrots in every bite.

Like its name implies, the popiah is marriage of the Hokkien popiah fillings and Cantonese Hofun skin. Come to think of it, it's very much like the Vietnamese Herb salad roll.

Fried Lau Su Fang (Bee Tai Bak)

The above looks and tastes like your regular fried koay teow - very dry-fry with a bit of charring to the noodle. Finally the Bubur Cha-Cha is your regular Bubur Cha-Cha, without any refinement. Doesn't need it... rich in coconut milk, and the tapioca, yam and sago cooked just right!

Sadly, this place closes after dusk. By the way, hearty lunch food is served as well as the breakfast fare.

Very poor service. I'm waiting here for the past half hour and still no one asked me for anything after handing me the menu.

... and the place's almost empty?

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!
