Just in front of hotel along carpenter street is a chinese temple (not sure if still operating) but locals here frequent this place for famous sarawak laksa and kolo mee...ask for special servings. Ingredients not generous but overall very delicious. See photos. Also well known for porridge and satay and bean curd dished. Must try if in kuching

When the mee kolo arrived, the smell of it reminds me of my kindie years, when my mum would tapau mee kolo for me to bring to school. Its amazing how food can do that to you! Definitely a must to eat breakfast here.

If you are a local food junky like most Malaysian, you must visit this amazing Kolomee dish, noodle in savoury soya based saurce and top with slices of BBQ pork or shredded chicken meat. You may back for more! Ideal dish for brunch or lunch!!
