Review: My boyfriend and I had a very bad experience dining in this restaurant. We waited two bowls of mee for an hour! He reconfirmed our order with the chef after 30 minutes of waiting, the chef told him that the next order he was going to prepare was ours(and showed the paper which our order was written). However, after 15 to 20 minutes, we had not receive our order but newly came customers got theirs! We were mad and asked the chef for our mee again. At that moment, the chef was unable to find the paper with our order and claimed that the paper flew away, he did not prepare the mee for us. He knew we were frustrated as we stayed in his restaurant for almost an hour, so he took our order once again, then immediately cooked for us. Moreover, the staffs were unfriendly and service was bad. According to websites, it is one of the best kolo mee in town, but you need to be extremely patient if you wish to have a meal in this restaurant. They have poor management.

Review: There were only few stalls open in the morning (around 9 AM). Red kolo mee at Sin Lian Shin taste slightly better than that at Hock Heng. Besides that, soy milk is smooth and its sweetness is perfect.

Review: There was no queue as mentioned over the internet when I arrived or I was simply lucky? It was too sweet for me and the ice cream melt fast. Only two toppings are available: peanuts or cornflakes, nonetheless, they offer different favor everyday. For your information, gula apong is palm sugar.

Night- The seafood market next to Open Air Market

There are numerous seafood stalls in the market. We had our dinner around 6.00 p.m. and only three seafood stalls were opened.

Food ordered: Butter prawn, chili frogs, deep fried squid and sweet leaf bush with eggs.

Price: RM53.00 (excluding drinks)

Review: Butter prawn and sweet lead bush were awfully salty. Salts could be clearly seen on the fried butter. Comparing to the saltiness of butter prawn, that of sweet lead bush with eggs was bearable, at least it tasted better when we ate it with rice.

3. Fock Hai Tim Sum Cafe

Address: 52, Jalan Padungan, 93100 Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia

Business hours: 6 AM to 12 PM

Food ordered: Chicken pau (RM3.20), red bean pau (RM1.30), sio bee (RM2.70), ha kau (RM2.70)

Review: Chicken within the bun was tough. I could not divide the bun into half using hands, it was not chewy at all. The sauce used for chicken pau was very similar to pork pau (big pau). If you are allowed to eat pork, you may try their pork pau. Apart from that, red bean paste was filled only half of a bun and the paste was dry. Sio bee was small and not juicy. Last but not least, ha kau this restaurant served was not purely prawn. Ha kau is supposed to be made by 100% prawn. They mixed prawn with pork, I barely tasted prawn in the ha kau.
