Coollala was used to sell coconut ice cream. In 2017, they started to sell juices. Juice made fresh with tangerine, mango, sweet purple potatoes, and grapes. The variety of juice got extended, now they have avocado as their signature menu, strawberry, raspberry, passion fruits, taro, etc. All the fruits are imported. They even have milk tea with pearls.
I bought their signature avocado juice. Too bad it only comes in one size, the volume is really too much for me. The avocado juice with fresh milk is really thick and concentrated. After consuming half, I started to get tired of it. Nevertheless, the price RM14 for this tall cup is acceptable due to the higher cost of imported fruits.
If I go to CityOne again, I would like to try out their different juices. It's quite a dilemma to decide which to buy when you wish to try it all.

I brought my parents to Damai on the third day of Raya. After a long drive, we came here for lunch. As I have introduced Buntal 88 Seafood Centre before, this time I chose to dine at Teo Seafood. Next time I will try out the other two restaurants along the same road.
I have been to Teo Seafood before too. The service was good, and food serving time was quite fast too. The environment is breezy, quite a relaxed place for lunch and dinner.
Due to Raya holidays, the choices in the menus were limited. No clams, no fresh coconut. I ordered steamed prawns, sea cucumber soup, fried kangkong, curry bamboo clams, Teochew-style steamed fish.
The seafood was all fresh and I like every dish they served, especially the steamed prawns. It's my personal liking to eat prawns with plain taste. I don't like to eat prawns with flavours like salted eggs, butter style, etc. Steamed prawns with a dipping sauce like belacan or chili sauce are the best match to go with rice.
This is the small portion of sea cucumber soup. We have 3 pax, this portion is more than sufficient. The soup texture is thick, very flavourful.
Stir-fried kangkong with garlic. A vegetable dish is a must. At some restaurants, the kangkong would turn black after cooked, theirs was still greeny.
Curry bamboo clams. They have removed the clam shells for you. Very thoughtful.
My parents like to eat fish. The fish meat was smooth and tender. Taste sour because it's Teochew style, the broth goes well with rice too.

After lunch, brought my parents to Damai Central for a walk. It was my first visit too. Not much of attraction and the building is not well-maintained as well.

Have you tried LIANG Sandwich Bar yet? It has newly opened this end of April at The Spring Shopping Mall in Kuching. I had no clue about it until my sister-in-law asked for it. I used to be a fan of Jay Chou donkey years ago, his first two albums were my favourite. Now I seldom get up-to-date about his new albums nor news.
Back to the topic, its so-called sandwich is made of what we have best known as "Roti Canai" and combined the recipe with Taiwan's scallion pancake. Interestingly, they make it a sandwich with different types of ingredients such as satay chicken, sambal ikan bilis, black pepper chicken, mushroom & egg, cheese & egg, etc.
They have two best sellers: Satay Chicken Sandwich and LIANG Chicken Sandwich.
I had LIANG Chicken Sandwich, RM10.90.
The pancake is crispy, tastes good which is out of my surprise. I didn't hold any expectation beforehand.
The portion of its ingredients is acceptable for the price you paid (RM10.90). Contained egg, smoked chicken breast meat, lettuce, and hoisin sauce.
Despite its good taste, I still deem it's slightly overpriced. I have the hesitation to order its add-on, a slice of cheese RM3, an egg RM3, a chicken patty RM6.

These days I always settle my meals at BDC. I became a regular customer of this coffee shop. They have assorted toast breakfast sets, kolo mee, and fried dishes such as fried kway tiaw, fried rice, fried noodles, etc.
I usually have kolo kueh tiaw / kway tiaw for breakfast. It costs RM3.00 and comes with a small bowl of clear soup. You can notice the deep-fried lard bits on top. It's really flavourful, the best part is that it is not greasy. I am very particular about the thickness of kueh tiaw, and this vendor uses the right thickness of kueh tiaw that is perfect for kolo method (boiled and tossed).
KL Hokkien Mee (RM6.00). It's authentic to the Hokkien Mee in KL so the taste is slightly sweet.
Penang Wok Fried Kway Tiaw with Duck Egg (RM6.00). This is one of their signature dishes. The portion is bigger than my expectation, and it's only RM6.00. But somehow it's still lack of something which I can't justify. Too dry?
Big Breakfast Set RM18.50. Their breakfast sets are slightly pricey. But the taste is good and they are very hygienic. I usually order their egg or chicken breast sandwich. It's worth to give it a try.
Address: G1, Ground Floor, Emporium No. 9, Jalan Tun Jugah, 93350 Kuching, Sarawak. Business hours: Monday - Sunday 11:00 AM - 11:45 PM
There are total 3 cafes at Emporium selling pearl milk tea. Chun Yang 春陽茶事 is the one at the entrance. The design of the storefront and logo look very "Taiwanese". It reminds me of Chun Shui Tang 春水堂, the restaurant in Taiwan whose staff invented the pearl milk tea.
The interior design looks good, but.. as we entered, the strong smell of herbs was quite unbearable. I didn't know what they were brewing in the pot. Honestly, the scent was not so pleasant.
I had the one in the middle called Brown Sugar Pearl with Fresh Milk RM12.90. It tastes good, the sweetness can't be customised. But it was just nice, not as sweet as I thought it would be. The pearls were very chewy, it was nicer as compared to what I had at HiCaa.
Address: G065AS & G065BS, Ground Floor, Vivacity Megamall, Jalan Wan Alwi, 93350 Kuching, Malaysia
Lately there are many bubble tea shops opened in Kuching. This business expansion of HiCaa is quite aggressive as well, 3 outlets in total and 1 outlet in Miri. I visited the one at Vivacity Megamall. The interior design of this outlet is attractive, it's a good place to hang out with friends.
Black Pearl Milk Tea, Strawberry Milkshake, and Signature Cocoa Cream Milk Tea.
The drinks itself was good but not the black pearls, it's slightly hard not chewy enough.
Address: 179, Jalan Padungan, 93100 Kuching, Sarawak Business hours: Thursday - Tuesday 9:00am - 3:00pm (Closed on Wednesday)
There is no big signboard but it definitely has caught a lot of attention. Some time ago I drove passed Padungan road, noticed this unimposing shop with the unattractive banner. But the two words "RAMEN BAR" caught my eye. Weeks ago, I finally recalled this place and made my first visit there.
It's not air-conditioned. It's an open kitchen. The owner was really welcoming and friendly.
Nam Manglak (RM3.90)
Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Lime Mohito (RM4.90)
Steamed Rice Water Cake / Chwee Kueh (RM1.10 per piece)
Premier 101 area has many food stalls operated by vendors from China. I don't usually visit there because of the traffic congestion and the BBQ smoke environment. Years ago my friend bought this Xinjiang bbq skewers and I was impressed with the taste.
Chicken wings RM12 per 4 pcs.
Mutton skewers RM10 per 4 sticks.
If you like it spicy, you can ask them to spread more chili powder. All the skewers taste the same, it's cumin. I like mutton skewers the most.
Address: 943, Lorong Bdc, Taman Satria Jaya, 93350 Kuching, Sarawak Business hours: Friday - Wednesday 7:30am - 1:30pm (Thursday off)
I visit Taman BDC almost every day to get food for lunch and dinner. This Spring Delight Cafe is quite crowded at times in the morning. I had it once before. However, I was not so impressed. Last Monday came to patronize again with my family for brunch.
Fish Kueh Teow Soup (RM8.50)
Mix Soup with Mee Kuning (RM10.00)
This is my Prawn Mee Hoon Soup (RM9.00). With 3 thumb-size of prawns, RM9 a bowl. What do you think? The soup was tasty and the ingredients were fresh. The vendor cooked each order individually. As you can see the different versions of the clear soups presented here.
4 pieces of Belacan Chicken @RM6.00. Among all the dishes, this is the only one I would compliment. The chicken is flavourful and crispy skin. The chicken itself is not marinated with belacan but the dipping sauce is made of belacan. A piece of this chicken is only RM1.50. I thought we would get the breast meat but surprisingly it's thigh meat. This is fried chicken is good to go with rice.
