QQ Noodle House : Original Sarawak Sibu Kampua mee
Hailing from Sibu, Sarawak, Kampua Noodles is a ubiquitous dish that is eaten at all time of the day, not to be confused with Kolo mee which is another popular Sarawak noodle that more a Kuching speciality, although both have their origin from the Fuzhou in China.
QQ Noodle House has gone through a transition journey of 50 years and 3 generations so far- From the initial street hawking to a primitive noodle stall, followed by setting up a small stall inside a retro coffee shop to the current restaurant setup.
QQ House Speciality (Dry/Soup) $4.90
Their signature here, for dry version, you have a choice of noodle to be served in Original Kampua, Black Chilli, Sambal Chilli, Tomato, Black sauce or Mala flavour.
We tried the original Kampua and sambal chilli noodle.
The noodle was QQ and not lumpy when served, nice texture that live up to the name of QQ Noodle House, the noodle was tossed in onion oil and topped with char siew, minced pork, spring onions and deep-fried shallots. Everything was nicely done and we can appreciate the work that went into the crafting the bowl of the noodle. (3.0/5.0)
Fried QQ Noodle $7.0
This is good! The hints of sweetness from the black sauce and the eggy flavour in combination with the nicely fried aromatic noodle can make your eyes rolling. In fact, we kind of like it more than their QQ House Speciality Kampua mee and a highly recommended dish to try. (3.8/5.0)
Creamed Abalone Mushroom $11.0
The battered abalone mushroom was deep fried and coated with honey to give it a crisp and sweet taste, not too bad but you could feel the cloyingness after few bites, however, you can expect the young will probably love it more than anyone else. (3.0/5.0)
Home-made Wu Xiang $7.5
The ordinary flavour and the filling do not have the usual firmness of the typical wu xiang, it was “rickety” and unfortunately we can’t fully appreciate the present of the prawns and the minced pork, perhaps it was overshadowed by the in proportional of the flour and key ingredients used. (2.5/5.0)
We haven’t got the chance to visit Sibu personally to verify the authenticity of the Kampua mee, however, what presented by the QQ Noodle House has the needed quality to entice the customers and keep our taste buds happy, for a taste that is hundreds of miles away.
