I cross the street…

In an earlier post, I mentioned that we skipped lunch that day of the wedding and I went back to the hotel to bathe and rest. I think it was around 2 0r 3 when I got up from my nap and I crossed the street to this place…


…right across the road from the hotel where I was staying to see what I could have for tea to tide me over till dinner that night.

Browsing through their menu, I was delighted to see that they had this black glutinous rice (pulut hitam) served with rich and creamy santan (coconut milk) dessert (RM5.00)…

Pulut hitam 1

…and without a second thought, I ordered that! I think the last time I had that was in KL in 2011 and before that I had a very nice one in 2009 in Penang and a few disappointing ones in those two cities in between. It sure looked a lot nicer in the menu though. They had the santan in circles and they probably ran a toothpick across the lines to make a floral design but it did not matter – after all, the test of the pudding is in the eating and I must say, it…

Pulut hitam 2

…was really very nice and I enjoyed it to the max.

I know I shouldn’t have but I simply had to order this mango sago pearl dessert (RM6.20)…

Mango sago pearl

…to try and I lived to regret it. Not only was it nowhere near that truly awesome Mango No. 5 but it simply wasn’t anything to shout about, really.

I wanted this…


…because I do enjoy good, rich, buttery scones with clotted cream and fruit jam but I was informed that it was not available.

In the end, I ordered this prawn dumplings with noodles (RM7.20)…


…to try. Yes, it was good but I am pretty sure one can get something cheaper that is just as satisfying at the coffee shops here, there and everywhere in the state capital.

MUNCH (1.555081, 110.353470) is located at  No. 179, Jalan Song Thian Cheok in Padungan, near the Secret Recipe outlet there.

  1. Black glutinous rice is my favourite too. I love mango but in this case I don’t think I like the Mango sago pearl desserts. It looks mushy. I prefer with chunk of mango like the one you have at Mango No. 5. That bowl of noodles with prawn dumpling is pricey.

    I guess that’s because it’s prawn plus this ain’t your regular coffee shop kind of place. It was nice but personally, I don’t mind meat…and paying less.

  2. I went for its toast before. Did not try the dessert and noodle. If to choose, I will go for the black glutinous rice.

    I noticed that most everybody else was having their toast sandwiches but no, I would not want those. So many nice things to eat in Kuching – the toast sandwiches can wait!

  3. Yummy, yummy!! I like the black glutinous rice anytime! With santan some more, it really looks so so good!

    You can bookmark this place – make sure you do not miss it when you go to Kuching. Next trip to Kuching, I am going to this place called Cocopuri for this:
    Don’t you think that looks absolutely gorgeous?
