What you see…

…can trigger a craving at times or at least, this is true in my case and it does not help one bit that my family and friends will share alluring photographs of what they eat on Facebook on a regular basis.

Like the other day, for instance, a cousin of mine in Kuching had this liver and minced meat soup withย kway teowย and egg…


…and her photograph had everyone drooling like crazy and another cousin went for the same…


…the very next day. It did not come cheap though – RM6.00 and I hear they only got three pieces of liver.

That, of course, got my taste buds working overtime and I could not wait to go for something of the same here. I was out and about early on the morning of Chap Goh Meh to pick up a few things for the steamboat dinner we would be having that night and since we would be having a lot of soup then, I decided to have something dry and dropped by here…


– I have not been to this shop for a while now but I’ve blogged about it before here and here. The rising sun shining in through the back entrance would give you a fair idea as to how early I was.

Well, for RM5.00 at this shop, one would be able to enjoy their kolo mee special…


…and you will get all that liver, intestine and everything else.

I did not really count but I was pretty sure there were at least 10 slices of the liver and just as many bits of intestine in it…


…and a whole lot of noodles as well…


…in one bowl.ย If you’re not a big eater, perhaps you can share with a friend…or tapao the rest when you’re already filled to the brim.

I did hear people grumbling that the old lady is not very consistent and at times, what she dishes out may not be as nice but luckily, what I had that morning…


…was very very good. The main complaint would be the fact that the noodles are, at times, overcooked and a bit too soft or soggy and will not be so nice. I guess if one tells her when ordering not to cook the noodles too long, this may be avoided.

No, if you’re wondering whether this is anything like the best kolo mee one would find in Kuching, I would say that it does not come across to me like one of those nor is it like any of the kampua noodles in town. Let’s just say that it is in a class of its own…and it is certainly nice enough for me to want to go and enjoy it again and again and again.

  1. This really makes me keep on thinking about the one I had in Kuching lo!!!

    Had a good one when I hopped over to Kuching that day – watch out for the post! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Wow, wow, wow! I thought the first photo was already exciting and then what you had with the liver (what 10 pieces!) and spare parts really got me all worked up! I love liver!! I think I would have no problems finishing up the whole lot ๐Ÿ˜€

    Come on over! I’ll take you here. You can have a feast! If you order the liver soup, there is so much liver – I found it hard to finish it all!

  3. All looks equally great & tempting. Kolo mee special has a lot of ingredients till one can’t see the mee.Am going to have my fair share of kolo mee now. Bon appetit to me!!!!!

    Enjoy yourself. Where to?

  4. wow, i’ve never seen an egg-&-liver soup before … i love both ingredients, and i’d love to combine them in one delicious bowl! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Nice, with all the other stuff thrown in. This one’s in Kuching – we have some good ones here too.

  5. I would like a bowl of soupy noddles now, though it’s freaking hot outside, hehe!

    It’s hot here. Hot days, I’d go for dry.

  6. no no innards tenkiu! but i would have the kolo mee, please! ๐Ÿ˜€

    When are you coming again? Come, come, bring BF… Air Asia zero fare opens for booking – midnight 24th February. Don’t miss it!!!

  7. I love all of them above but must minus the liver… Still very reddish looking but then it helps to replenish blood so it seems….

    Traditional Chinese believe it is nutritious…but not the current ones. RM5, less than AUD$2 – you should have come here for a holiday lah! Eat to your heart’s content…and can also go sightseeing here plus I will get to meet the rest of your family that I have not met yet. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Oh my parents love liver. I did too in my pre-veggie days. They aren’t too big on intestines though. I think that’s partly due to the fact that mom had it so much when she was young that she got sick of eating them.

    Can’t say I like liver but I do enjoy eating when I get to do that. In the old days, traditional Chinese believe that it was nutritious, great for health but these days, everyone avoids it – high in cholesterol, they say. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  9. Yum!!! The first two pictures make me drool. It is something like what we have it here, pork noodles, you make me think of having it now! *hungry*

    Ya, like kway teow th’ng – I like! I love clear soup.

  10. It sure does look good!

    I had a prawn mee today for RM 6 too but there was only tiny shrimp inside and it’s sliced in half to boot! I like how the dish had so much goodies, like the pork liver slice peeking out and the egg.

    KL mah! Here, if it’s too expensive I don’t think it will last very long. Most people would just go for the plain kampua – RM2.50…but I hear Rasa Sayang has gone up to RM2.80, dunno the other places.
