Dad is already a fan of this store, even chatting with the fellow kuching-born owners with his suggestions. White Kolo Mee ($5.50/$6.50) was classically simple yet fragrant and flavourful - we slurped up the al dente Kolo Mee tossed in shallot oil so quick. Char siew, minced meat, and lard but added meatiness and crunch to the mix. Sarawak Laksa ($7 for Beehoon) packed a spicy-sour oomph and was so so rich and lemak. Condiments was also self-service so we could add as much chilli and lard and lime as we desired. Tip for Sarawak Laksa: try the soup straight, then with lime, then with the chilli mixed in, to appreciate the different flavour components coming together! Only downside was that the chilli isn't as good as traditional Sarawak style (this was the one my dad gave suggestions for)

Moonlight Horfun still as good as I remember it from the Jalan Besar outlet. Silky smooth, savoury with wokhei, creamy from the egg yolk, what more can I say. YUM!!
Baby octopus was also perfectly tender with a slight crunch, and paired so well with the sauce and fried garlic bits. Another must-order for future visits.
Fried Beehoon was comparatively lacklustre with the Moonlight Horfun on the same table.

Sandakan Fried Pork Kway Teow ($6.50, Small)
Sarawak Laksa ($9.50)

Fried pork was indeed as delicious as everyone has made it out to be - crunchy and very flavourful (still cannot place what's in the marinade). Kway Teow was also mixed in a delicious blend of sauces, very savoury with a hint of sweetness. Add the chilli for a punch of spiciness!

Sarawak Laksa was also rich and lemak, definitely one of the better ones in SG. Prawns, fried pork, omelette shreds, and taupok heaped atop your noodle of choice to make for a satisfying meal.

Chaota Beehoon ($10.80) - full of flavour and delightfully crispy at the edges, this was a great with the accompanying chilli. Though my dad preferred JB Ah Meng's version.
White Mee Sue ($6.80) - chock full of fish slices, minced pork, and even small shrimps, we couldn't stop slurping up this bowl of goodness. Highly recommended!
Qing Long Chye ($13.80) - it was alright, slightly more expensive than our usual order of Kang Kong or sweet potato leaves.
Prawn Cracker ($13.80) - crispy and filled with minced prawn, dip it in the accompanying mayo for a good bite to whet your appetite. Can get slightly heavy towards the end though, so best to share this with 4 pax.

My dad's hunt for the best Ipoh Curry Noodles in SG brought us to Jian Zao at this AMK coffeeshop. Rich and savoury curry gravy unlike the usual curry mee you might be used to, as well as a plethora of toppings including charsiew, shredded chicken, roasted pork, and long bean. Definitely one of the better Ipoh Curry Noodles I've had recently, though my father was adamant that this wasn't as good as Yap's Noodles (at Golden Shoe/Yishun Park).

This BCM as good!! The dry meekia version had an oomph to it, and it was a better than average medley of noodles and sauce. Defo sth I'll keep coming back to!

I had the dry version, my dad had the soup. Both were great - slurp worthy and cheap to boot. Wasn't really a :0000 meal but it checks all the boxes! Preferred the dry over the soup but to each their own.

The moment you reach the store, can immediately smell the whiff of charcoal. didn't know food could smell like charcoal (unless you're...eating charcoal...but you do you) but this hokkien mee did. Wow. One of the better hokkien mees I've tasted in awhile. Dk why most hokkien mees I tried all so limp. but this one definitely stood up.

maybe only the Sambal chilli could be more punchy, but that's my personal opinion lah, you might like it. also, $6 for this small portion make my stomach and wallet cry.

Some char on the noodles which added abit of wok hey, and I liked the wetness of the dish. Sambal was also shiok and lent a bit of heat to the dish. Only complaint is that the taste was quite light.
