Taman Megah Kolo Mee

Ever since I was back from my Kuching trip in July, I have been craving for kolo mee. The nearest kolo mee fix I could find in PJ would be the stall which operates inside Ming Tien food court at Taman Megah (dinner only), but it is pale in comparison with the one I had in Kuching.

Then one day, while Googling about kolo mee, I saw Masak-masak’s old post about this kolo mee place at Restoran Gembira, Taman Megah!

CK and I decided to drop by the shop on one sunny Sunday morning. The shop was packed to the brim with hungry patrons but we managed to secure a table at the corner. It doesn’t take long before we spotted the stall, manned by an elderly couple and helped by a younger lady who doesn’t talk (the daughter, maybe?). The elder lady, also the cook dons a fancy, round hat and cute apron – really easy to recognise.

Both CK and I agreed that the noodle’s is thicker here, resembling instant noodle’s texture. Although the noodle is tossed with a mixture of garlic oil and some lard, the lardy taste was quite mild. The minced pork was okay, but as expected, the char siu slices were a tad dry and hard. While CK lamented that the noodle doesn’t taste any similar and as good as Sin Lian Hin’s version, I personally feel that it is way better than the Ming Tien food court’s.

    Thanks Ciki. Nice to see you in the gym too! Hope you had a good workout.

    Ipohgal,
    There are a numbers of places selling “sarawak noodles” or “sarawak handmade noodles” in Klang Valley but none of them are as authentic as Kuching’s. I read somewhere that apparently, there is a place in Puchong serves a very similar version of Kuching’s, but I have yet to go there and try it myself.
