Digging through my archives I found this picture of a very nice Sarawak Kolo Mee I had in Taman Megah. It's not the best picture of it probably because of that day's lighting but believe me it's super tasty.
There seems to be quite a few Sarawak stalls within this area - the other corner shop Goodluck has one with quite a few varieties like the lesser known Tomato Kuey Teow while this one serves Kolo Mee and Sarawak Laksa. Run by a couple from Miri, I'm always fascinated with the lady's outlandish hats which she dons while cooking the noodles.
The Kolo Mee or what I term as frizzy egg noodles is handmade and tossed in a mixture of garlic oil and I suspect a tinge of lard to give it extra oomph. It's topped with minced meat and slices of char siu with a sprinkling of chopped spring onions. Besides the Kolo Mee, try their Sarawak Laksa which is also very good. The soup broth is not as tasty as the Nam Chuan version but I absolutely love their sambal belachan dip which has a wonderful aroma.
