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

    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.
