SWEE KANG ICE KACANG
Swee Kang’s is an institution which needs no introduction in Kuching. This family business has spread out from a single stall in Tower Market, the heart of Kuching’s best hawker food, into multiple locations around town. If you are wondering where Sarawakians get that extra meal of the daily roster, then this is it. Ice Kacang, Rojak, Belacan Bee Hoon, Char Kueh – they are all on offer for a savoury snack or a shot of sugar at any time of the day. Best of the bunch, they still do an old-style fresh lime – squeezed fresh from the actual limau kasturi itself, served over shaved ice, spiced up with just a pinch of salt. To every place in town which has switched to cordial, watch and learn the love of a real fresh lime. In Asia, nothing trumps the delights of a shaved ice dessert, and Swee Kang does them all with a lot more on the side. The family has been making them all their lives. No wonder Kuching loves them.

LAU YA KENG @ THE TEO CHEW TEMPLE
Unmissable, this food court is one of the oldest in Kuching, with many of the stallholders into their third generation. It runs full steam from morning to night serving up a wide variety of kopitiam classics. Little more than a vaulted space between two buildings, it belongs to the picturesque Teo Chew temple across the way. Now it is a temple to food: the laksa is top notch, the Tang Hoon soup (mung bean noodles with stuffed tofu) a healthy, light option and pork satay, a sweeter alternative to the halal original. Another big draw is the kueh chap stall, a rich broth with every part of the pig imaginable from ears to intestines. For a light snack, ask thoroughly modern Mollie for ngo hiang (almost unpronounceable but utterly delightful to the Western tongue). This minced pork sausage, wrapped in bean curd and then fried to a crisp is the perfect partner to a can of Tiger. See out the day here, staring at the Temple and sampling every Sarawak specialty.
