Believe it or not? This is my very first time dining at Chong Choon Cafe at Jalan Abell. Quite easy to locate, consider the same row as Air Asia office.
Serious! I’m not kidding you. I’m not the kind that sit at the coffee shop, mostly we buy the food back. Besides that, it’s my first time eating the food there too! So called Kuchingite hahaha… I didn’t go there for the Sarawak Laksa though. I went there for my lunch 2 months ago. I was waiting for my IELTS speaking test so I went there with another candidate. Just found out the photos were in my phone and I forgot to transfer to my computer.
We did not have much time to enjoy and they’re closing. No mood to enjoy too. There were what we ordered:
Left: Kolo lau su fen, literally translate it as rat noodle (RM2.50). Don’t worry, it’s not made from rats! Another name for it is silver needle noodle. The noodle is red because it was added with char siew oil. Or usually if you want to have this, you can say “pang ang” (in Hokkien, it means you want it to be red). In fact you can ask for this in any kolo dish. No extra charge.
Right: Kolo mee (RM2.50). I’m not a fan of kolo mee, I usually don’t order kolo mee, I usually cannot finish one bowl on my own, just few mouths and I’ll be full. I wanted to order the wonton soup but it was out of stock. Nothing else to order, I ended up with kolomee. Luckily I managed to finish everything. Don’t ask me to give comment whether it’s good or not because I don’t really know what a good kolomee should be ;p At least this one did not torture me, I managed to finish it, quite slowly… Did not want to waste food.
Overall, nothing much I can comment about the place. However, it is a place that you can go if you want to experience the old school kopitiam in Kuching. It is one of the most popular kopitiams serving one of the best Sarawak Laksa in town but be sure to be there as early as you can because it’s too popular! You can also find humongous 3-layer Teh C Peng there.
