Everything started to come back on 3rd day of CNY.
Most eateries were opened on 3rd day so we would no need to crack our heads on where to eat or bored of having those franchise-owned outlets' food.
Some have opened on 2nd day like this coffee shop called "Smell Good" in Stutong. We actually went to this coffee shop on the 2nd day and only laksa and kolok mee stalls operated that day.
Hubby's uncle wanted to have some local food before open house visiting so after few rounds around Kuching, we found a coffee shop that actually open and nearer to the 1st house that we were going to visit. It was a long wait as business was so good. Lucky no price hike.
And we gone back there the next day because hubby thought the noodle was good and it is convenient and strategic place to have breakfast. My hubby's uncle, cousin and sis and bro-in-laws were driving back to Sibu that morning so we decided to have breakfast there together before they started their road trip back.
We ordered 8 bowls of kolok mee so each of us has a bowl. To our surprise, they came in styrofoam pack which you used for take-away. When asked, the stall operators informed us no staff to wash the used bowls so we had to resort to disposable cutleries. I never like to use those fragile fork and spoon.
Hubby and I shared this bowl of Sarawak laksa which we thought it was nice. I love the fact that they used the smaller vermicelli than those big type.
My bil also had a plate of this Hainanese chicken rice besides the Sarawak kolok mee. He said it was good. Rice was soft and fragrant and the chicken was tender and tasted good. Will give the chicken rice a try next round we are going this way.
