Sarawak Cuisine in Melbourne

The Young Ones live, study and work in Melbourne and when their Uncle was in town, took him to sample the cuisine of home, right in the heart of Elizabeth Street.

What a pleasure it was to find specialty dishes like Kolo Mee, Kampua Mee and Sarawak Laksa on the menu. Of course I ordered the Kolo Mee, Kelly had the Mee Mamak, Lionel ordered the Sweet & Sour Pork and Addy had the Kampua Mee special. All dishes lived up to expectations and authenticity except for the overuse of oil. So much so that the late arrivals specified less oil in the cooking. Fair enough. Kolo Mee especially relies on pork fat to give it the special flavour but there is no harm in toning down the fat input and our palates and health will thank us for it.

Seeing an opening in Melbourne's crowded food scene, the owners from Sibu, Sarawak have found their niche market in the Malaysians from Sarawak. Not quite home but close.
