Kuching Must-Eat : Noodle Descendents, Jalan Padungan

I think I have like split personality. Hahaha. No matter when I am sad, happy, down, hyper, i can still blog like normal. I started to worry about myself. hohoho

DSC04602Kuching Must-Eat. Not only for the tourists, but the locals as well. Kuching is like a Food Paradise in East Malaysia. Just like Penang in West Malaysia they have so much unique and signature food, we have ours too. Other than the famous Kolo Mee, Kueh Chap, Laksa, Kompia, Hu Ngan, Belacan Bihun, Tomato Mee, and all the different ethnic food, we have these very famous noodle which draw the crowd non stop from as early as 7am to 3pm. Noodle Descendants is the name of the shop! They served noodles with pork offal soup. We called that “Zheng”, means noodles with mixed pork soup. Easy.

DSC04570Noodle Descendants, it is located along Jalan Padungan. Walk slowly or if you see there’s a queue, it probably is. In Kuching, we seldom have food that need such a long queue… except this one. 

DSC04571Average time consumed for waiting+eating at Noodle Descendants — 2 hours. Probably its because of the limited seats as well. There are only like less than 20 tables.. so.. just queue for it.

DSC04573There are some rules that you need to know while eating at Noodle Descendants. I need to write this down here because a lot of my foreign friends went there alone and they do not know it.. end up… hmmm.. get scolded. Hehehehe!


Rule No.1 : Queue until someone ask you to go some designated table.

Rule No.2 : You might need to share table with others, which is uncommon in Kuching

Rule No.3 : While you are seated, please just sit down until someone come and take your order.

Rule No.4 : Again. Emphasize— DO NOT GO AND ORDER YOUR FOOD. Sit and wait until someone come to you

I guess i speak the most important one. Hehehe! 

DSC04574Theres one fine Saturday when our beloved Fabiola came back for a short weekend. As usual.. her must go place. We reached there around 10.45am

DSC04575_pQueue and be seated at around 11.30am. Waited and chit chat (selfie/wefie) among ourselves until someone came and clean the table and took our orders, it was 12pm when our orders were taken. Wait another half an hour for the food to come. So YAY! our food arrived at 12.30pm finally!

DSC04578The chilli girl Joan got a special treatment. Look at her chilli padi bowl as compared to us. *horror* And she finished them all… *double horror*

DSC04583By 12.30pm, our food arrived!! The noodles. You can opt for haIf or full portion for the noodles. opt for half portion of noodles. For the guys, they normally have the full portion.

DSC04587You cant speak out how good the noodles is honestly, but, it will make you come back again for more. Addictive i would say. But i personally love the noodle. I duno know why, its just plain delicious. Its simple but addictive. You might think its just so so, but eventually you will somehow miss them. 🙂

DSC04590Or you can opt your bowl of goodness with some homemade pink charsiew.

DSC04594The pork offal soup. The pork offal is very fresh. Do not worry bout the piggy smell, they have none. Even the kidneys are prepared nicely and clean. Soup was sweet, natural flavorings from the goodness of the offal. 

DSC04606Mine was the small portion. RM 5.50 but good enough for me. 

A simple bowl of pork offal soup with noodles, just good enough for your breakfast or lunch. By the time we finished our so-called brunch/lunch.. its 1.15pm. Hoho. 

DSC04600And the magic lies underneath the famous pork offal soup and noodles is… its so simple yet so delicious. Please try at least once when you come over to Kuching. Just ask anyone at the roadside: ” I want to try the wait long long zheng (offal soup)” I guess someone will give you a direction. 🙂

But i would like to clarify, for me, it do not have the immediate WOW effect when you eat it.. but somehow you will just crave for it after that. Thats the magic 🙂
