Da Niu Sarawak Kuching Kolo Mee @ Petaling Jaya

Kuching kopitiam classics, available for folks in PJ seeking a fuss-free lunch that costs under RM10: Da Niu's speciality is kolo mee, which can be ordered in either the original or red variant (RM7; for the latter, the firm and springy thin noodles come in a pleasantly light sweet char siew sauce, topped with char siew, minced pork, fried wantans, shallots and garlic).

The claypot braised pork leg soup with rice seems popular too, swimming with gelatinous cuts of meat and a hard-boiled egg, sweetened with wolfberries and Chinese herbs, potentially substituting for bak kut teh in its own way. RM9.

  1. It is so close to home and I have bookmarked this place. I hope they are as good as Sarawak's.

    1. Twilight Man: they seem to try to do justice to Sarawak fare, I think. On weekends, they do Sarawak Laksa ;)

  2. I would definitely go for the claypot braised pork leg! And I will not be able to resist the eggs. I want two!

  3. You wouldn't find the fried wantons in the ones in Kuching but I guess theirs do not go up to RM7.00. RM9.00 for the pork leg rice is cheap, I pay more or less that same amount for something like that here, RM8-9.
