Kuching Day 7: Yee Ann kampua mee + Ya Huang

Kuching is all quiet now and reaching the stage where it’s getting hard to find good Chinese food around.

kampua mee

Luckily for us, Yee Ann kopitiam was still open so Jo could have her favourite kampua mee. The red noodles behind is her plate which is ‘puak’ with chilli sauce, my dad always has his kampua mee in its original state.


It was difficult finding a place to have dinner. All our designated places were either not open or fully booked! I can’t believe Kuching restaurants can be fully booked. So in the end we settled for Ya Huang which literally means King of Ducks. We had some simple dishes like this tofu spinach dish which was actually very nice.


Can’t go to the King of Ducks without having duck of some form. I did like the duck, much more meaty and tender than the ducks in Perth. But I think roast ducks in Perth are more flavourful.

kou rou

Mei Cai Kou Rou, something I love to cook at home. Their version was very good, the belly pork was very tender. I was quite impressed with the food at Ya Huang.

Hehe, my brother and mum bantering with each other, my brother has a way of teasing my mum and making her laugh.

We’ve decorated our mini orange tree :).


Pretty table cloth all laid out and mini flower pot ready.


We’re ready to Ying Chun Jie Fu, welcome Spring and good fortune now. Happy Chinese New Year everyone, may the dragon year bring you lots of happiness, prosperity and good luck!

    Haha I love the collage of Dar and Ah Ma!

    I also like Ya Huang, their dishes are tasty. How come you all didn’t have dong buo rou? Their dong buo rou is really good. I’m surprised they weren’t full, I thought last year Ah Pa had to queue up for ages to collec the duck we ordered?

    Oh dear will there be any shops open by the time I arrive?

      er the simple answer is, probably not! but i’m sure some shops might be open but the food won’t be great. never mind, wait till like day 5 or 6, the stalls should be up and running then.
