Even though I am a fan of wanton mee, this is the first time I tasted Sarawak kolo mee. I have initially wanted to have the curry pork rib noodles at Tampines Blk 137 Market but it was sold out, so I settled for Yummy Sarawak kolo mee instead.
A bowl of kolo mee which costs $3 comes with an impressive array of ingredients eg one fried wanton, two steamed wanton, one prawn dumpling, one piece of pork rib and several slices of char siew. The springy noodles with a distinctive egg flavour somewhat reminds me of instant noodles. Compared with the sweet and spicy sauce of traditional Cantonese wanton mee, the authentic sauce of the Sarawak kolo mee is more savory and salty. I was very impressed with the large prawn dumpling which is extremely flavorful and the tasty pork rib which is fingerlicking good.
Even though it was a wonderful experience eating Yummy Sarawak kolo mee, I still prefer the Cantonese wanton mee because I feel that the sauce blends better with the noodles. But judging by the queue in front of the stall, I guess my opinion is biased and many people like it better than I do. Come down and try it for yourself today.
