On Malaysia's Day, we headed to Permai for the beach. But before that, we stopped by Satok which was on the way for a breakfast.
It has been ages since we came to this old part of Kuching for breakfast. Satok. The name reminded you of the old weekly market, night hawker food and the busy trading durung the day. It is no longer that buzzing but still, you could expect to find good food in least expected place. The old timer and Kuchingites would tell you what is good here.
One of the busy old coffee shops around Satok would be Yong Hua Cafe. Located in Lorong Satok 5, it offers good choices of Malay food during the day time.
As expected, it was crowded. Mostly Malay patrons but you could see few tables of other races waiting patiently to be served. This middle coffee shop was so cramped that you have to squeeze for a table. I believe food has its magnet and attraction no matter what.
I have been there once before for Sarawak laksa and I remember it was good. This time, I opted for Mee Jawa.
Hubby ordered special plate for me (RM7.50) that have few sticks of chicken and beef satay.
Taste-wise it was good, thick, and rich of flavour. It was a very filling breakfast for me.
