Kolo mee 乾撈麵, this ubiquitous tossed noodle has become part of Kuching city folks’ life.

Kolo mee is ‘endemic’ to Kuching, and only in recent years has it spread to other towns in Sarawak. In fact, its popularity has spread to a few eateries in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur!
Somehow, kolo mee does not taste like the kolo mee they used to eat, unless it is eaten in Kuching.
There was no substitute for the authentic kolo mee made in Kuching, cooked in Kuching, and eaten in Kuching. Anything kolo mee outside Kuching were poor imitations

Ithe good old days a bowl of kolo mee ‘kosong’ (served without any garnishing) cost 30 cents and a standard serving with slivers of meat cost an extra 20 cents.

Kolo mee ‘special’ with extra garnishing like boiled prawns costing at least a few ringgit more were unheard of in those days … life was simple then.
Kolo mee earned the signature dish of Kuching when it transcended the racial barrier and made it into the menu of Malay coffee shops through its halal version. Although it has not make it to the ranks of `nasi lemak’ or `mee jawa’ in halal eateries, mee kolok has gained a large following among those who eat only halal food.

There is no secret in the success of kolo mee – it is basically boiled noodles tossed with cooking oil, fired shallots or garlic, seasoning (usually an unhealthy dose of sodium glucomate) and light soya sauce.

Manok Pansoh  
On the other hand, the State is also known for some traditional dishes made popular by the indigenous people of Sarawak. One of these dishes includes the popular Manok Pansoh which has become a regular dish item at various social functions around town.  
Originating from the Ibans - the largest ethnic group in the State, Manok Pansoh or Ay am Pansuh (which literally means Bamboo Chicken) is cooked whereby chunks of chicken pieces are stuffed into a bamboo along with other ingredients such as lemongrass, tapioca leaves, mushrooms and even the optional rice wine, and cooked over an open fire.  
Through this method of cooking, the bamboo seals in the flavours and imparts a distinctive aromatic flavour to the tender chicken pieces.  
To try this tantalising dish for yourselves, Manok Pansoh is available at Aroma Cafe (Tabuan Road), The Cottage (Bukit Mata Road), Nori 10 Cafe, My Village Baruk (Kampung Boyan) and various hotels in Kuching.  
 


Kuching has a great deal to offer the adventurous gourmet. As well as typical Malaysian and Western fare, there is a whole range of local delicacies worth trying - see Sarawak Specialties. There were more than a thousand food outlets in Kuching. We strongly recommend those visitors who have a little time get out and about in Kuching's suburbs and make own dining discoveries. Those who like Malaysian food you could discover some best Malay food in Kuching City.
 


COFFEE SHOPS

Coffee-shops with their attendant food-stalls are dotted all over town. Some of the most interesting and traditional ones are found around Jalan Carpenter, Main Bazaar and Padungan Road, The coffee shops on Lebuh Temple are conveniently located near the budget hotels on Jalan Green Hill, and serve a wide selection of dishes, including good roasted chicken rice (Green Hill Cafe). At lunchtimes, many coffee shops serve economy rice, mixed rice, fast food or nasi campur. These are four different names for the same dish - a plate of rice with portions of meat, fish, curry and vegetables selected from the delicacies on display. Cheap (RM 3-5), delicious and very filling.
