Aunthentic Hakka Rice in Kuching (Lui Cha)

To start off, Chinese is very diversified.

There is Hakka, Hokkien, Teochew, Foochow, Cantonese, just to name a few dialects.

Let's take for example, Hakka. It is further branched out into smaller clans.

For your information, I am Hakka, of Kah-Ying Clan. And oh, we do not have Lui Cha as our dish.

This dish belongs to Hakka of HoPoh Clan.

It is a vegetarian dish, made of rice, garnished with several types of vegetables, and served with a bowl of soup, made up of a medley of Hakka herbs. It is called Lui Cha, literally means, thunder tea.

And this, is the best lui cha haunt in Kuching, situated at Green road.

Opens from Mondays to Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm.

The beautiful spokesperson for Lui Cha :)

It is a nonetheless, very flavorful dish. An acquired taste, I have to say.

I survived on this cheap eat during my days in JB. Cheap and satisfying!

But, this famous outlet in Kuching, has a different twist to the ones I had in Johore Bahru.

At least, no cabbage! :)

Bon appetit and enjoy the photos! :)
