HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE @ 101 FOOD CORRIDOR, JALAN SIMPANG TIGA, KUCHING

Grilled Cuttlefish

There's something about this place that 's intriguing... this plot of land has been sitting idle for the past 20 or so years while its surrounding area develops into housing estates and commercial lots. All this time, the owner has been sitting on a goldmine. I bet all the Lillians in the world will have a swine of a time feng-shuing this and that, after the fact - as usual.

The place has become one of the hottest night spots for its gung-ho hawker-stall food. All the feeder stalls of the various coffee shops will happily deliver their food to your table along this few hundred feet stretch of a corridor, no matter where you are sitting. And parking is a cinch, and with a few private security personnel thrown in as well.


Deep-Fried Quail

As the title denotes, we order the food from all over the place - a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. The cuttlefish lady is one chatty lady who speaks fluent Cantonese, from her time in Ipoh, who will sweet talk you into buying her aromatic wonders. You can witness her on-the-job demo of the making of a cuttlefish, from a stiff slab to a hot and tender coarse roll. The quails are simply delish nibbles... well, to a couple of Kiwis!

Thai Curry Seafood

Grilled Sardine

I think the fishes and the midin are all from the same stall. As the total bill is quite a bundle. When we enquire of itemised price, the most expensive one is the sardine, which costs RM30 for a single fish. When prodded of its exorbitant price, he replies: "It's from Holland." Oh, yes, We've been HORLAN!!! I gather this stall accepts credit card too... you'd certainly never leave home without it if you come to this particular stall!

$30 for a mackerel is pretty steep.

Is this the row you mentioned about to Annie? Is it easy to find?

you can't miss it in the evening. it's the corridor to the right of choice daily, the fish stall i think is the corner shop after the 1st. block.

Hi Mike. This place is really booming. I can't believe the crowd at night.

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!
