House Of Kolomee

Special thanks to House Of Kolomee for extending this food review invitation.

Update: This business has ceased its operations.

House Of Kolomee (砂捞越干捞面专卖店) at D'Piazza has moved several shops away from its original location. The new shop is now on the other side of Coffee Talk Premium. This Sarawakian noodle shop starts operation at its new location in May 2017, which also coincides with its 5th anniversary in business.
Like before, House Of Kolomee adopts self-service model to save manpower. The touchscreen terminal at the first station is where customers enter their food choices. This is also where customers make their payments.
The second station is where customers collect their orders. There are serial numbers on the receipts for customers to refer to. Food is typically ready in less than 5 minutes.
There are several drink dispensers at the third station. Available drinks are orange juice, peach tea, honey green tea and ice lemon tea. For the entire month of May 2017, drinks are on the house.
The signature dish here is Kolomee (干捞面, RM5.00). The egg noodle is cooked by blanching in boiling water. After draining with a strainer, the noodle is tossed with sweet red sauce, soy sauce and pork lard. I like the springiness of egg noodle. It seems to work pretty well with the seasoning.
Other vital ingredients of Sarawak Kolomee are barbecued pork (叉烧) and minced pork (肉碎). Both are quite tasty. Also included are bok choy (小白菜), chopped scallion and fried onion.
Laksa (呖沙, RM6.00) is customarily served with rice vermicelli (米粉), but I opted for kolomee noodle as I like its springy texture. I also enjoy the gravy that Sarawak Laksa comes with. The creamy gravy is very rich thanks to the presence of chicken stock, sambal belacan (chili shrimp paste) and coconut milk.
Sarawak Laksa also includes ingredients like shredded chicken, shrimps, omelette strips, bean sprouts and coriander. Chili paste and lime are provided as condiments. Overall, this noodle dish is quite satisfying.
Although these Sarawakian dishes may look simple, I think they resonate well with the local palate. The pricing is also quite affordable compared other restaurants nearby.
