This place was recommended for its kolo mee. The noodles were nice and springy and the "cheng" soup (pork spare parts optional) was very tasty

Very delicious local delicacy called ''KOLO MEE". What I always ordered was one mixed pork intestine soup with one kolo mee. So delicious!

Kim Joo serves a pretty good Kolo Mee with a bit more different elements than the usual barbecue pork. You also get a small soup with bean sprouts in, which was a pleasant add on to the otherwise heavy dish. Pretty good quality for a low price, would go there again.

Kim Joo is one unassuming shop along Carpenter Street. We tried it anyway as it was within the attraction sites and had good reviews from Tripadvisor. We ordered the Kim Joo special. What flavorful noodles, just so delicious! The roast pork and meatball toppings were just not enough so we ordered additional servings. We wanted the pork bun but it... More

So one find day I finally went there for a try. Excited with all the good comments and patiently waiting for my bowl of goodness.... More

Every Sarawakian would have a favoirite kolomee stall. Kim Joo is mine. I love the taste of mixed soup made here. Coupled with a plain serving of kolomee, it is the best start for a hectic work day.

Having walked by here many times when they were closed in the evenings, I ate here twice during my stay in Kuching. The Kolo Mee is fantastic! I had the version with everything (tripe, tongue, other offal). The noodles were flavorful, and their bao (big Chinese dumplings) are also delicious. They close after 2pm I think, so you have to...
