Kampua mee; which means dry plate noodles in Foochow, is one of Sarawak local kopitiam dish originally from Sibu along side Kolo mee. It can be ‘devoured’ for breakfast, lunch, teatime, dinner or even supper as long as it is available in any kopitiam.
Kampua mee originated from the Foochow people of Sarawak; the noodle is handmade and softer than Kuching’s famous Kolo mee. This is to absorb all the pork lard and onion oil sauce on the plate.
