“Sin Poh Poh - fantastico! bravo!”

Restaurant details
Reviewed December 21, 2017

While exploring the Padungan area (Kuching's Chinatown), we're drawn to a sweet little girl and her brother bustling around serving customers while their mum works her wok furiously frying non-stop. Great food smells wafting all over the place. The stall specialises in heritage Fuzhou (or Foochow) noodles, both fried as well as soupy. Majority Chinese Sarawakians originates from Fuzhou, China. In particular, fried "bai guo" (mini unique glutinous rice cakes) and char kway teow burst with nostalgic old world flavours with every mouthful, full of "wok hei" (wok breath: alluring smoky aroma).
The toasts stall boasts amazing sandwiches. We enjoy almost everything the stall offers and all are fresh and yummy. You can't miss the heavenly smell and taste of braised pork trotters. We can't stop ourselves from falling all over the irresistible food spread on our table, too greedy to take pictures.
The sheer variety of tempting food choices means making several happy trips or going in a group to sample all. Sin Poh Poh's delightful authentic homely Sarawakian cuisine is hard to beat. Great value at around half the prices in Singapore where many traditional foods and cooking styles are either already extinct or becoming endangered, or bastardised versions of their former glory. Sin Poh Poh - fantastico! bravo!

Sin Poh Poh has the best local food in one place. Try out the kampua mee and the red wine wantan (known as Kiaw in Kuching), as well as the Sarawak laksa. One serving of the is not enough to satisfy your appetite as they are sooooooooo good. And if you still have the stomach space, do try out the kolo mee, red wine meesuah, dian men gu, foochow fried noodles, kuih chap, pork leg rice, kongpia, chicken rice, roti kahwin, the list goes on and on.....
Parking is adequate at the back lane, and there are plenty of tables and seats but it does get really busy at times. Take a look at your table number and inform the stall operator so that your orders get delivered correctly to you.

The many types of food are still here, now tuck away in Padungan. The Kampua noodles is one of the best in Kuching. There are also plenty type of other authentic Sarawak food that one should try. Go early
