We were in Marina Square, wondering what to have for dinner when we walked past Jia Xiang Sarawak Kuching Kolo Mee (Other branches in VivoCity and Chinatown)~ Decided to give it a try since kolo mee is almost like the national dish over in Kuching, Sarawak and we harboured high hopes. Considering that an overseas branch might not be that authentic, we had hoped for it to be at least above average~
But alas, we were very disappointed indeed!
$5.90 for a bowl of kolo mee which tastes like wanton mee is quite ridiculous. What's more, the portion was meagre and hardly filling. Baby then requested for extra noodles for both of us and get this: the extra noodles came at a cost of $2 each! That really took the cake. Might as well not request for the extra noodles coz it hardly made any difference to the paltry portions!
Summed up to about $8 for a bowl of kolo mee~ -_-" I say take away the unnecessary items like the boiled wantons and prawns in our soup and shed a few dollars off the price!
The noodles. Despite the appearance, it was not springy enough and kind of tasted like the noodles in average wanton mee~ And can u see how dry it was?
Bill came up to about $20 (drinks included)~ Rip-off with a capital R! Will not be going back again coz i would much rather go for Parklane or Pontian!
