I am visiting my old friend in Kucing, and as you know, Kuching is famous for their local delicacy that worth to come here again and again just to enjoy the food. There are many good food that I want to write about Kuching, but for today post on tenchopsticks.com, I would like to review variety food located at Song Kheng Hai food court. To local, it is a place where they can enjoy breakfast and also tea time (fried kong pia is a must). You will see a lot of local coming here, not to mention tourist who knows well about Kuching and they often comes back here.
I arrived here during tea time, so the food that I want to have is strictly limited for snack only. I know they have more variety heavy meal that you can order, but I only go for some best recommended. One of it is Rojak. This rojak from appearance is just like normal rojak that you can find in almost everywhere in Malaysia. What makes it special is actually on the sauce. It is unique and probably only can find on this store. Yes, it is sweet, but there is some deep taste about it, I suspect they did put a bit of sour taste to enhance the taste.
For drinks, I tempt to order cendol, but to control my sugar level, I just go along with sugar cane water. It is really refreshing when drinking this in hot weather, on that time I drink, it is almost 38 degree C outside. You have to drink this quick so that the ice does not dilute the original taste of the sugar cane. One highly recommended drink during hot weather and especially when you want something fresh and organic. Yes, the sugar cane is just harvest locally.
Lastly, the special menu that we order is this fried kong pia stuffed with pork meat. Now, this is something unique that I only can find in this place. The proportion of the meat is just nice, it does not comes out a lot when you eat it, and it is not too less also. Beside, they fried the Kong Pia well as the skin is crunchy and really goes well with the stuffed pork meat. If you go to Song Kheng Hai recreation ground, this is a must order.
