This 23 year old stall is the OG Mee “Parit” in Lutong, Miri

Are you really a Sarawakian if you don’t know what Kolok mee is? Kolok Mee is a very simple yet special Sarawakian Malaysian dish. Since the world is evolving, a simple dish could also evolve. Some even added the most out of this world ingredient in a dish. Have you heard of Mee Kolok served with worm? Mhmm, it exists. Even with all these new and evolved recipes, a traditional, simple Kolok Mee still tops the list. Here’s another legendary, roadside kolok mee that we found, tested and reviewed – the Mee “Parit” in Lutong, Miri!

History of the Mee “Parit” Lutong, Miri

Located at the roadside in Kampung Pengkalan Lutong, this roadside eatery actually started their business almost 20 years ago with just a small stall by the drain. Thus, the name Mee “Parit” Lutong, Miri. The locals would also refer to it as the Roadside Night Kolok Mee Stall, but in actuality, they are called Ah Mah Old Taste Noodle. After 20 years, they were able to open bigger space for people to dine in and enjoy their food. The bigger space is now 3 years old, so they have been operating for a total of 23 years now.

We came around 6.30pm and the place was almost full already. Luckily, we got a table.

It was still quite early, and people were already filling up the tables as you can see. Moments after I took this picture, this place was full! Alrighty, let’s not waste any more time and jump right into the food. 

The Classic Mee Kolok at Ah Mah Old Taste Noodle

We ordered the Mee Kolok merah cos I love me some Mee merah. The portion for a price of RM3.50 is A LOT. The usual Mee Merah would come with barbeque pork slices, but I noticed there weren’t any in this. I feel somehow incomplete that it doesn’t have the bbq pork slices! Nevertheless, the taste was still good. They had plentiful stir fried minced pork which I guess did justice to the no-show of the bbq pork slices. 

The famous Curry Noodle of Ah Mah Old Taste Noodle

Next, we have the Curry Noodle! The curry noodle is only available on Tuesdays and Saturdays. We went on a Tuesday, no wonder it was super packed. When I looked around, I realized a lot of people ordered Curry Noodle. “This must be their best seller.” I thought to myself. You know when you review food, you gotta take picture lah, take video lah kan.

So, there are times where dishes like this, noodle in a broth or soup, would get soggy and not tasty anymore. We actually ordered another bowl of curry noodle, just to get the taste of it when it’s still fresh from the kitchen versus the one we had first. The curry noodle was surprisingly delicious EVEN when it’s soggy. We told the lao ban niang that, and she said, actually many love eating it after the noodle gets a little soggy! Huhh, interesting right? I’d totally come back for this one. Writing this right now makes me want to go get it again. *inhale exhale* In addition to that, don’t worry the curry is not spicy! 

Mee Kaki Ayam – So why did the chicken cross the road?

Till today, I still don’t know the reason. Anyway! Third, we have the Mee Kaki Ayam. Chicken’s feet is a popular dish on its own, but to have it with noodle, is just a perfect combination! This is also one of the popular dish here at the Mee “Parit” Lutong, Miri. Did you know chicken’s feets are rich in collagen which can make your skin more supple! Haaaa, who would’ve thought huh. *grabs more chicken feet to feast on*

The dish comes with two soy chicken feet! If you’re feeling a little extra, just add on some more chicken’s feet on the side. This dish for me was alright, cause I’m not like a big fan of chicken’s feet. 

There’s Dumpling you should know, you’re Wanton in a million!

Last but not least, we had dumplings and wanton! I count ah when it comes to dumpling and wanton, HAHA! Mostly cause I want more, more, more! There were 6 pieces of dumpling in this one. It was slightly on a saltier side for me, but my friend said they liked it. So, I think that’s down to preference already. Some may like it, some may not.

The wanton here is light for me. It has 10 pieces of wanton drenched in super flavorful soup. If you’d like something light and not heavy, you should definitely get the dumpling or wanton. 

All in all, everything was good. It’s your classical, legendary place to get noodles. If this place was a person, it will give you that warm, loving hug kind of feeling. It’s a comfort food, nevertheless.
