[PONTIANAK] Kwe Kia Theng, Pisang Goreng Four V & Rumah Makan 89 at Gajah Mada Pontianak

October 6th, 2017. When in Pontianak, we explored Gajah Mada street for culinary journey.


Kwe Kia Theng is a local street food from Tio Ciu. It’s easy to find Kwe Kia Theng in Pontianak. And they said the popular one was the one at Gajah Mada street. So, that night I visited Gajah Mada street to find good food, and of course, searched for the famous Kwe Kia Theng.


Kwe Kia Theng is rice noodle in soya sauce soup with pork and egg and everything else. It’s like kwetiau, but thinner and wider. Well, I didn’t really like the taste. Maybe because I’m not used to eat that.

Fried Bananas are a very popular snacks and street food in Pontianak, and also everywhere. But, when I was in Gajah Mada street, I saw this Pisang Goreng Four V, so I bought it.


Fried banana fritters with srikaya was their signature. You can ask them to cut the fried banana into pieces or not.

After snacking, I still had to eat rice. So, I stopped by the very near restaurant that serving Nasi Kari and Nasi Ayam. Rumah Makan 89. I remember that I was there the previous time I went to Pontianak.


I didn’t stay there to eat. Just had the Nasi Kari for take-away. I wanted to eat Nasi Ayam but I was too full. So, I just ordered the Nasi Kari.

Nasi Kari

This Nasi Kari wasn’t like Indian curry or Japanese curry. It’s like my Mom’s homemade curry. I think it’s Chinese version hahaha. They put pork and chicken and everything else. Delicious! Recommended! And I’m drooling now!
