After our river cruise, we walked to the Carpenter Street for our car. Since our car was parked somewhere near Lau Ya Keng, we decided to settle our dinner there.
Hubby commented on the nice and authentic pork leg rice (or some call it braised mix rice) that he liked from Lau Ya Keng, so we had that for dinner. Not our typical dinner as usually I cook Sunday dinner or we go for street food or chu char. Pork leg rice for Sunday dinner? Hardly on our mind.
It has been ages since I came to Lau Ya Keng at night. Used to come here as a child for porridge. But that was long time ago. Things change, people change.
But like before, the place was packed! Used to have few stalls opened in the past to cater to night diners but now only the braised rice stall opened.
After ordered directly from the stall, we collected a number tag and patiently waited for our food. About 30 minutes later, our big plate of braised meats and assortment came! That portion was for 5 persons!
Lean meats, pork belly, pig's ears, blood cubes, taufu were some on the plate. We had option of porridge or rice but we went for the latter.
Pork leg rice always accompanied by braised soup and chilli dipping.
I loved its chilli dipping. They definitely very generous with the dipping and soup as you could ask for refilling.
It has been a while since I had pork leg rice, and some more at night! This definitely is one of the best in Kuching. Not the friendliest and fastest service around but it is what to expect from a typical Chinese shop. Now I understand why people willing to wait so long for it. Of course, not when your tummy is rumbling. Lol.
