If you read about Kuching on WikiTravel, you will see they mentioned interesting about the drinks section. Notably famous drinks in Kuching would be the Teh C Special (3 Layers Tea) and White Lady. So, what is White Lady?
White Lady – a concoction made of evaporated milk, syrup, colourful jellies and a slice of lemon. While the milk and syrup are sweet, the lemon lend a tangy taste to it, balancing the overall taste of the drink. All four of us love it on first sip!
Pardon the flash, but our tables were quite far from any lighting source. Another local drink called Metahorn – made with syrup, cendol, grass jelly, crushed ice and slices of lemon and lime. Quite refreshing, it reminds me of our local leng chi kang.
Of course we wouldn’t just be having drinks, so Danny ordered some char kuey teow and Mi Tomato (tomato kuey teow and yee mee) for us. It comes loaded with squid, pork, char siew and vegetables, all swimming in a reddish tomato-based gravy. It was quite delectable but I think the tomato gravy was a bit mild… as if it doesn’t taste like tomato at all.

But of course, other than Kolo mee, we can’t just leave Kuching without Sarawak Laksa. We went to Kit Siang Cafe (just slightly a stone throw away from Sin Lian Shin) the next morning for Danny’s favourite Sarawak Laksa haunt. Served with rice vermicelli, bean sprouts, chicken shreds, prawns and extra side dip, the soup was really good; flavourful but not too lemak and the spiciness level was tolerable. Must remember to squeeze in the lime juice for extra zing!

And that concludes our 3 days food trip on Kuching! Thanks to Danny for being such a gracious host! I’m planning to go back there again, anyone wanna tag along?
