Yummy Sarawak Kolo Mee stall located in Tampines Round Market and Food Centre always sees a long snaking queue for their wide plethora of noodle offerings.
In addition to their signature Sarawak Kolo Mee, they also serve wanton noodle, spare ribs noodle, chicken feet noodle, Ipoh hor fun; just to name a few.
Here was Lao Beng at the tail end of the queue, probably the longest queue amongst other hawker stalls. I waited close to ten minutes before it was my turn and ordered their Signature Sarawak Kuching Kolo Mee set meal at $5. (kolo mee set meal price ranges between $4- $7)
As you can clearly see, the curly fashioned kolo mee drenched with braised pork sauce immediately reminds you of instant noodle. Accompanying the kolo mee were two pieces of braised pork, three fried wantons, four boiled wantons, slivers of char siew and greens.
The al dente kolo mee has a nice chew and tasted well with the combination of the delicious braised pork sauce and chopped chillies. The char siew and both types of wantons were nothing to shout about. However, the winner here has to be the braised pork.
Thick but tender, the delicious braised pork pieces were probably cooked and simmered for the longest time to absorb all the goodness into the meat. The tenderness of the pork and its wonderful taste made me gobble them down in double-quick fashion. I personally feel that the braised pork with its wonderful sauce is best served with rice but nonetheless it still matches very well with the kolo mee.
Lao Beng’s Verdict
If you are an eastender, Yummy Sarawak Kolo Mee is the place to satisfy your kolo mee craving. If you are living elsewhere, do give it a try and let us know if it is worth the journey all the way down for the non-eastender. For a north-easterner like me, I would say it was definitely worth the short bus journey.
