Kuching Day 5 (Jong Hua Kopitiam │ Mita Cake House │ Unihaus)

Kuching Day 5!

It's our penultimate day in Kuching and with nothing planned we walked out of the Airbnb toward a row of shop houses. Brendan decided to sleep in and did not join us on our morning meandering. We wandered for a while before deciding on Thian Fock Cafe.

We've been having Kolo Mee the past few days and for a change ordered two sets of toast bread with half boiled eggs. It took a while for the eggs to be ready and together with drinks our breakfast came to RM16.00 (approximately USD4/EUR3).

We walked back to the Airbnb and I spent the rest of the morning in an office call.

The online meeting ended at half past twelve and we drove out of the Airbnb toward Jalan Satok in search the famous butter cheese cake at Mita Cake House. Alas they were out of stock. We then strolled along the row of shop houses until we reached Jong Hua Kopitiam where we decided to have lunch. 

After browsing the various stalls here we settled on:

  • Sarawak Laksa for RM8.00
  • Beef Noodles (Kueh Teow) for RM6.00
  • Chicken Rice (packed for Brendan) for RM9.00
  • a round of Wheat Grass drink for RM5.10

Cat ordered the Sarawak Laksa while I tried the Beef Noodle (Kueh Teow) and together with a round of drinks our lunch came to RM28.10 (approximately USD/EUR6).

After lunch we drove around and found success with the fabled butter cheese cake at the Mita Cake House in Eastmoore Centre. We then drove back to the Airbnb to begin packing for our flight back to Kuala Lumpur tomorrow evening.

Our car rental guy Awang Amirul called in the evening to explain that he had the rental dates mixed up for the car he gave us. Turned out he had also promised another renter the same car today, so he had to collect the car from us.

In exchange he gave us the use of a Toyota Camry till tomorrow! As nightfall approached we drove the replacement rental car to UNIMAS to pick Ashley up from Cempaka Residential College and take her our to dinner then proceeded to the general area of Aiman Mall.

We were in the mood for western food and wanted to try GBS Hanbāgā but alas it was closed, probably for good. Brendan then suggested we try Unihaus instead.

We got to Unihaus and got ourselves seated, but quickly moved to a bigger table when the opportunity arose. After browsing their menu we settled on:

  • Beef Cheezy Fries
  • Chicken Chop
  • Lamb Chop
  • Nasi Goreng Daging (Beef Fried Rice)
  • Nasi Goreng Seafood
  • Green Ice Tea
  • Iced Teh C Special
  • 2 glasses of Ribena Sprite Longan

that came to RM76.00 (approximately USD17/EUR16). We enjoyed our time at Unihaus as we got to know Ashley a little better, and after an hour we drove Ashley back to Cempaka Residential College before heading back to the Airbnb.

Tomorrow we'll be leaving on a jet plane!
