Choong Kwok Restaurant @ Sitiawan, Perak

Table of Contents

Back in the day, Sitiawan was a thriving settlement for migrants from Fuzhou, China (the people there were called Foochow). The only other place that people from Fuzhou settled in Malaysia was Sibu… and they are well known for a noodle dish, called kampua! And the place to try it in Sitiawan is Choong Kwok Restaurant!

Kampua is a noodle dish that is very closely associated with Foochow. It’s looks like wonton noodles, but it tastes very different. The noodles are fatter and has a different texture. Also, an essential ingredient in kampua is pork lard (who doesn’t love lard man)! Usually kampua is served with generous amounts of lard, though this days they cut down the amount for health reasons. It gives the noodle it’s fragrant smell and flavour.

I also ordered their fishball and wantan soup loh. It paired well with the noodles.

Prices of the various dishes offered

The prices for the food are very reasonable, though that’s because I’m using KL’s pricing as a benchmark. I’m not a big fan of noodles, but this place is one of the nicer places for authentic Foochow kampua.

P.S. Surprisingly, for such an old place, they have an instagram page.
