What's the Opposite of Beauty II?

Continuing on the journey along Cheong Chin Nam Road, I chanced upon a gem tucked beside 7-Eleven. I never knew about this gem until I heard about it from my Malaysian friends in Perth. This gem is Kuching Kolo Mee.

You will never know the difference between our local Mee Kia and the Sarawak Kolo Mee until you tried it yourself. Ubiquitous in Sarawak, the mee is curlier, firmer, crunchier, and also lighter. What’s more, besides the Char Siew and Veggies toss in it, the Mince Pork Topping is aromatic and delicious. Now, at our very doorstep, Jia Xiang Sarawak Kuching Kolo Mee presents you this opportunity for you to sample it.

Fried with shallots, the minced pork is miles ahead as compared to the normal cooked mince pork we get from our local noodle stalls. However, despite the high marks scored on the noodles, the wanton soup that I ordered was a huge disappointment.

The soup itself was plain and could probably make do with more pork or chicken bones and ikan bilis in it to bring out the taste. The wanton was also full of skin and lacked meat it in. I was quite sure my own wantons I made in Perth was much better, and the soup much tastier.
