Best Sarawak Kolo Mee in KL

Written by Updated ago

If you’ve been to Sarawak before, especially in the capital city of Kuching, kolo mee reigns supreme as one of the all-time favourite dishes among the Sarawakian Chinese. In fact, you can also say kolo mee is like a national dish to the them. So, what is kolo mee anyway? To begin with, the word “kolo” literally means “dry mixed” in Chinese. A bowl of kolo mee typically consists of springy thin noodles topped with minced pork, shallots, garlic, dark soy sauce, pepper and most of all, a few slices of juicy char siew (barbequed/BBQ pork) that completes the overall flavour. No doubt a simple, but appetising meal that can be enjoyed any time of the day!

    While the pork-less kolo mee might sounds strange to most food lovers who tried the dish before, the barbequed chicken slices are surprisingly decent enough as a substitute (a result to make the food halal). Other than that, the noodles itself is as springy as lai mien (a.k.a. hand-pulled noodle) with ample amount of fish cakes, chopped spring onions, and fried shallot tossed altogether in a bowl.
    Tips

    Lunch hour tends to be crowded, so come early if possible.

    Things to expect

    A menu ranging from dry to soupy version of various Sarawakian noodles.

    Ketchup Mee.

    RM9.00 to RM15.00

    Sarawak Kuching Kolok Mee @ Restaurant New 2020Non halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Here’s another place where you can find your gastronomic goodness of kolo mee in the Pandan Indah area. Located within the Restoran New 2020, the place operates as a small stall that also serves decent Sarawak Laksa. But it was the Kuching Kolok Mee that matters the most. Thanks to the flash-boiled thin noodles that are fine and resilient enough to the bite, the kolok (or kolo) mee is also blessed with a satisfying mixture of perfectly lean char siew and flavourful minced pork. To top it off, a few sprinkles of chopped spring onions add crunch to the noodle dish.
    Tips

    You can request your kolo mee to be added with reddish char siew sauce for a little boost of sweetness.

    Things to expect

    It’s not an air-conditioned restaurant, but gains a brownie point for its affordability.

    Upon the first thing you notice in this particular hawker stall at Restoran OK is “100% No Preservative”. Frankly, that sounds comforting enough for an otherwise kolo mee ended up tasting like a packet of instant noodles. Speaking of taste, the kolo mee here has a nice texture of wetness that slips well into your mouth upon consumption. Ingredients-wise, the finely-sliced combo of char siew and fish cakes are both fulfiling, along with a complimentary small bowl of seaweed soup that hits the spot.
    Tips

    Parking can be a hassle here since TTDI is often jammed with lots of vehicles, especially during peak hours.

    Things to expect

    Reasonable food price in the otherwise upscale residential area of TTDI.

    Apart from the catchy name of the black-and-white stall, Gambong! offers more than just your average Sarawak kolo mee. If you wanna stick to the tradition, there’s the authentic Kuching Kolo Mee that comes with a drool-worthy choice of beef, chicken & prawn, seafood or honey peppered chicken. But if you’re adventurous enough, give Oxtail Kolo Mee a try.
    Tips

    If you are up for Oxtail Kolo Mee, bear in mind it’s only available on Friday and Saturday.

    Things to expect

    Kolo mee with a unique twist.

    By now, many kolo mee lovers should be familiarised with this green-and-white eatery since it has already been mushrooming at more than 20 outlets nationwide! Pan Mee may have been a favourite here, but the Sarawak Kolo Mee (particularly the traditional flavour) tops the list as a must-try dish. The noodles have a fine taste that isn’t too dry, but contains enough watery texture that goes well with the usual ingredients mixed altogether. Best of all, it was the savoury combination of thinly-sliced char siew and bouncy pork balls that give this kolo mee a mouthful pleasure.
    Tips

    Try adding a spoonful of dried chilli flakes to your kolo mee for more oomph!

    Things to expect

    A variety of kolo mee and pan mee done in a Sarawakian style.

    If you happen to drop by at the Bangsar area and wanted to crave a bowl of kolo mee, look no further than Kedai Makanan Nam Chun. While the traditional kolo mee can be found here, do go for the red sauce version instead. With the usual goodies such as minced pork and reddish char siew slices thrown into the mix, it lends the kolo mee a delectable taste of sweet-and-palatable delight.
    Tips

    Just be mindful that the shop closed on certain Wednesdays.

    Things to expect

    Although Bangsar is commonly known for its higher-than-average price when comes to food, a good old fashioned Chinese restaurant like Kedai Makanan Nam Chun is a welcome sight of relief.

    The name of the restaurant says it all: it’s a place specialises in Sarawakian food. Among them, of course, is their signature kolo mee (or “mi kolok” as stated in the menu). But what makes the kolo mee different than most places are the multiple choices you can find here. For instance, there’s Mi Kolok Special that comes with a mouth-watering trio of prawn, chicken and meat slices. What a great combo that adds plenty of different texture to the already-savoury tastes of the kolo mee. If that’s not enough, they even have a fried version of kolo mee with a choice of either prawn or special variety!
    Tips

    Not owning a transport? No problem, since there is an alternative choice to reach the restaurant by taking Monorail or Star LRT Titiwangsa train. It takes about 15 minutes top, but look at the bright side and think of it as a little walking exercise.

    Things to expect

    Always curious how does a Sarawakian food variety taste like? Here’s the place for you under one roof.
