sarawak kolok mee

air flown from kuching

Every so often, I am tickled and amused by how my friends are all so crazy about a certain wanton noodle cooked the Sarawak way.

How good can it be, I asked. Of course I hadn’t tasted it before.

Being a loyalist, I wouldn’t have thought of a better way to serve a plate of wanton noodle other than  it  garnished with thick juicy barbecue marbled  pork belly with a tiny bowl of chicken stock with 3 hearty meat dumplings.

Stevie, who isn’t too crazy about noodles, actually ate 3 bowls of kolo mee daily while in Kuching earlier for the Green Forest Musical Festival in year 2011. The simplicity of taste caught his attention.

Recently, a packet of half a dozen ball of kolo noodles arrived our home. Sacredly, like a much treasured commodity. Air flown and hand carried by a fellow Sarawakian friend.

I now believed that kolo mee is the much mule couriered stuff across the South China Sea between the Peninsular and the Borneo Island.
