For a taste of Sarawak here in Singapore, Lin Yu Mei Sarawak Noodles & Kolo Mee definitely come close. Daily queues for their amazing kolo mee and their homemade chilli that packs a punch, this place is definitely worth checking out.
Run by Mdm Ling Hang Hua and her sister, Lin Yu Mei Sarawak Noodles & Kolo Mee has been one of the most popular stalls at Haig Road Food Center for several years. Although Sarawak Laksa is also on offer, it is definitely their Kolo Mee that is a crowd-pleaser. Side dishes such as fried wontons and fish sticks are also offered, making it the perfect pairing with their tasty kolo mee.
The Kolo Mee ($4) is served with spring and QQ noodles, ground pork and sliced Arctic char. Shake the noodles well to make sure each strand is coated with the mixture of shallot oil, soy sauce, and your homemade chilli. Just take a puff and the delicious aroma of shallot oil will soak you in and let you know you’re in for a treat.
Unlike some free noodles which taste alkaline, Kolo Mee does not taste alkaline, so you can fully enjoy the taste of sauces. Flavor-wise, it leans slightly to the lighter side, but when paired with ground pork and arctic char, the spice really pops.
As for their fiery chilli, it’s certainly not an understatement to say that it really packs a punch! Since the spice lingers but isn’t overpowering, you can’t help but reach for more with every bite. However, if you can’t really stand its heat, you have to be careful with the amount of chilli. Served with a bowl of light, comforting soup, it’s flavorful and helps release heat.
