Yummy Sarawak Kolo Mee – Not exactly the same, but not bad!
Sarawak Kolo Mee. Ask anyone from Sarawak and they’ll tell you it is the best food in their hometown.
The beauty in this dish is its simplicity. The kolo noodles are cooked, drained and dry-tossed with the different sauces, hence the name “kolo” was given. Usually in a bowl, there are some must-have ingredients: springy and oily noodles, minced pork, char siew and vegetables. Sometimes, “kiaw” (or wantons) are added.
To think of it, it actually looked similar to our familiar Wanton Mee. But no, it should not be. At Tampines Round Market, there is a stall that sells “Sarawak Kolo Mee”. It doesn’t have the minced meat, but its curly kolo mee is good!
Use only egg white: These noodles are only made of egg white, hence they are lighter in shade. But it is very fragrant!
No alkali: The stall owner told me their noodles has no “kee” (alkali taste like some of the noodles).
The noodles were indeed yummy. And they were complemented with huge wantons with crunchy water chestnuts. A plate of the kolo mee costs $3 / $4 / $5. Sarawak Kolo Mee Set costs $3.50 and above, with the addition of pork ribs (see picture above).
We also ordered Chicken Feet Spare Ribs Noodles ($4) because the spare ribs in the Kolo Mee looked really good. The spare ribs were indeed well braised and flavourful!
I haven’t eaten enough kolo mee to compare, but the noodles were real good. And I like the spare ribs. Next week, I will introduce another stall in the same market that sells yummy spare ribs noodles!
