Choon Hui Cafe

Kuching is famous for its laksa and one of the famous laksa joint is Choon Hui Cafe. The shop is located at Ban Hock Road, opposite Grand Continental Hotel.

A bowl of laksa cost RM4 here and there is an option to "upgrade" it with bigger prawns at RM5. The laksa consists of thin rice vermicelli, topped with omelette strips, chicken strips, prawn and bean sprouts. What make the laksa sold here more special than the other outlets in Kuching is the thicker gravy.

The laksa, as usual is served with sambal chili paste and sour tamarind

Choon Hui cafe also serve other food such as kolo mee, porridge, toast bread and etc. One should come early as the laksa will usually sold out by 10am.

What's special about Kuching laksa? I tried Penang laksa, Singapore laksa and Johor laksa. But my favorite of all is the one I tried in Kota Kinabalu which the restaurant claims it is Singapore laksa

Sarawak laksa soup contains no curry. Beside that, its garnish also differ from those from Penang and Johor

Hey wanna ask u.
Is Kolo mee and "gorn lou mein" (dry noodle) the same?

Borneo Falcon said...

Kolo mee and dry noodle is about the same. Just the texture and taste differ.

In Sibu it is called "kam pua" which also means dry noodle. However, the texture and the taste is totally different. The ingredient that goes into the preparation the noodles also are different
