The Fusion Café on Jalan Thain Cheok was excellent, the food was delicious especially the 3 layer pork for MR10 ($3.06) and Fried Mee for MR5 ($1.53). Everything was very reasonably priced 3 x cans Tiger Beer with bucket of ice MR14 ($4.29) and Mushroom fired rice MR5.
There are tables and chair outside and inside is quite cute with pink painted walls and little wooden tables and stools. It also seems very popular with younger locals.
I don’t know if it was the owner or a worker who looked after us but she was fantastic, very friendly and of course made the suggestion to Gary that he would be better ordered the special of 3 Tiger Beers! My Vanilla Pearl Milk Tea was only MR4 ($1.20) and so refreshing.
Very nice little café.

We went to the Carvery at the Abell Hotel a couple of times and you can order from the menu or have the buffet which is themed on the Brazilian style of Carvery. All the soups, vegetables, salads, breads and desserts are buffet style but all the meat is bought to your table on big skewers and carved onto your plate.
There are 14 different meats such as loin lamb chops, lamb leg, lamb shanks, sirloin steak, blackened beef ribs, sausages, fish and more. Everything we had was cooked perfectly and so delicious, the lamb shanks and lamb chops were the best I have had and it was so nice to have broccoli, cauliflower and brussel sprouts again.
We thoroughly enjoyed the Carvery and left so full, the current price is RM63 ($20) a person and it is so worth it. On your table you have a red and green disc, if you have the green disc showing saying serve me then the guys will keep coming to your table carving meat onto your plate.
Put the red disc up saying thank you and they will leave you alone because you are saying no more we are full.
The first time we went to the Carvery we ordered from the menu. I had not had steak in over 2 months so ordered a medium well done New Zealand Prime Rib and Gary ordered Chicken Cordon Bleu.
Presentation was excellent and I was so looking forward to this steak but when I cut into it there was blood running out. I could not eat it but Gary loved it as it was cooked perfectly for him and I thoroughly enjoyed his Cordon Bleu.
The bill for our dinner and alcohol drinks was MR111 ($34).
We highly recommend a visit to the Carvery if you are in Kuching.

Khatulistiwa Restaurant is in a prime location on the riverfront and definitely looks better at night, it is a 24 hour place but during the daytime you can really notice how much it needs a good cleanup.
The food is very hit and miss if you can get anyone to take your order but the setting is very nice. I think the worst Nasi Goreng I have ever had was from here and their Beef Rendang was also below average with tough chewy meat.
On the other hand their burgers were delicious as was the black pepper fried rice.
So after trying the meals here a couple of times we will not eat here again, but we would go back for drinks, snacks and the lovely location on the riverfront.

James Brooke Bistro is in the perfect location on the riverfront and it is beautifully decorated and quite quirky in old colonial style. It was so relaxing sitting here with a drink just watching the world go by and we went here many times during our stay.
There are also quite a few photo opportunities in the bistro with cat sculptures out the front, real cats sleeping around the place and old artwork places around the restaurant.
We really enjoyed spending time here and our only complaint would be the staff, they could be a bit quicker on their feet, sometimes it was very hard even to pay the bill as they were always too busy talking amongst themselves instead of looking after customers.
The bistro is named after James Brooke who born in 1803 and was the first white Rajah of Sarawak.

Our favorite place for dinner that we went to a couple of times was Top Spot Seafood - Bukit Mata Seafood Centre (Number 25) on top of a 6 story car park, this place was only a 3 minute walk from our hotel.
We ordered 1 x kilo prawns cooked in garlic & butter, Chili Mud Crab, Squid, large fried rice and a vegetable dish, everything we ordered here came to MR97 ($29.77) and it was delicious!
Drinks are paid separately and a large bottle of Tiger beer & a fresh pineapple juice was MR18 ($5.50). We did not realize there was a lift up to the top but found it on the way down.
We highly recommend having dinner here, fresh, delicious and cheap.

Tumis is located 2 mins across Hilton. It's great to find good halal local food so close by. It's small but cozy enough and run by a friendly proprietor. Glad we tried the local dish called Nasi Goreng Dabai and the suggested ayam bakar. I also enjoyed the 3 layer tea. Highly recommended.

What a gem we found tucked at the side of a small boutique hotel along the Main Bazaar. Panera is a still new, cute little cafe run by friendly people. They offer an attractive selection of cakes, pastries and cookies (try the blonde bar and the rainbow cheesecake) at v.reasonable prices. So refreshing compared to the small selection at James Brooke at RM12 p/slice!. We are coffee lovers and their coffee did not disappoint.

There are two things which crowd Chong Choon cafe daily. First is the laksa stall which starts serving bowls of spicy laksa to customers for breakfast as early as 7.30 am. The laksa starts from RM4.00 (small bowl) - RM 5.00 (large bowl with big fresh prawns).
Every laksa stall in Kuching is slightly different, which is why the locals all have their favourite laksa stall. For me, this stall is the best because the cook puts in generous serves of coriander, spices, and enough spiciness to give the taste a real "kick"!. If you're into strongly flavoured laksa, look no further that this coffeeshop located at 3rd mile, behind the MacDonalds at Central Park Commercial Centre.
The other stall worth mentioning is David's stall. He serves lamb noodle, spicy beef noodle all with handmade spinach or carrot noodles freshly made everyday at the shop. David also lends a kick to his dishes by putting fresh goats milk in his lamb stews for that extra creamy taste! His roast chicken noodles are also worth trying. Prices for his dishes range from RM5.00 to RM7.00.
Dave's missus, who is in charge of the drinks stall, serves the best coffee in 3rd mile. Strong, thick and piping hot at RM1.00 per cup, its guaranteed to give the drinker a kickstart to the day!
Favorite Dish: The LAKSA!

The Equator Restaurant is located on the eastern edge of the waterfront promenade in Kuching. It serves a wide range of good quality meals at very reasonable prices. You can sit in the open air section for coffee or a drink, or eat a meal undercover upstairs and get great views of the Sarawak River and lights of northen Kuching at night.

Little Lebanon is a restaurant at one end of India street. Serving mainly authentic Lebanese, Middle Eastern and local favourites, the restaurant has a good choice to pick from and is an ideal opportunity to discover the taste of Lebanon through their offerings of Shawarma, Kebabs, Arabic Sausages, Kiftah Halabi, Hommus and a variety of Pita Bread specialties. The interior is beautifully decorated with Middle Eastern design plus they also serve beer as you can see in one of the photos. Good food that's a little different to noodles and rice.
