Street food and hawker stalls are a big reason that Asia is such a great holiday travel destination. Kuching is no exception. The food stalls are on the other side of the Sarawak River and therefore you need to catch a riverboat across, for the princely sum of 50 sen per person. What a great way to start and finish...

The riverside stalls have many varieties. If you stay near Hilton, you can cross the river and get to the other side where you can buy local delectable cakes called Kek Lapis Sarawak from Mira Cake House at RM10 per box. Tasty!!! You will have to take a 5 mins boat ride at the riverside opposite Hilton. 50 sen per... More

You can take a boat ride (50 sen per ride) from the jetty near Khatulistiwa Cafe to get across to that area. It's a food court. Highly recommended stall no. 11.

The walk along the waterside is lovely as the place is dotted with nice cafes and quaint shops. Try their kek Lapis which is their version of layered cakes. Some of them are very nice. You can find laundromats around this place and massage centers. Don't plan for a late evening as these shops close as early as 5.30pm

Tired of hotel food? This would be one of the cheapest alternatives. This food court is located on the other side of the river, slightly to the right of Hilton. Get across the river for 0.50 Ringgit one way. Don't forget to wear some mosquito repellant if visiting the food court after sunset. The boat will drop you off right... More

The river is a lovely place to walk at any time of the day: in the morning you can do your jogging and in the evening stroll around like many other Malaysian families do, take a rest on one of the banks and take something to eat or drink. A have my favorite stall for my ice coffee and another... More

Very near to all big hotel, just across the river after 50 cents boat ride. Lots of choices of local food & the important thing is very cheap! Local people also sell souvenir & t shirt for memento.

There is nothing to dislike about Kuching. The culture and food is superb. Very clean city although its quite small than other city in Malaysia. Its very safe here since most of the crowd is local people

During my stay in Kuching except the breakfast served by the hotel I had to eat at the eateries around. Most of the food served had the sweet taste,even the curry. Fortunately for me and my family, we happened to have dinner at the Chilli Pepper Restaurant, where the owner made an effort to cook the dishes as to my... More
