Eating in Kuching

Batu Lintang Food Court Kuching

The Batu Lintang Food Court, also known as Batu Lintang Hawker Centre, is popular both day and night.

During the day, the place is popular for rojak, while at night, seafood stalls open in this open air styled hawker centre.

What to expect at Batu Lintang Food Court

Although open air, the food court is covered by a recently added roof.  Except for the stalls, the seating/customer area is wall-free.

The place is well ventilated and the public toilet (which is located at the back of the restaurant), is clean as well despite its age.

Parking can be tricky during peak hours especially during public holidays, pay day (end of the month) as well.

During the day, Rojak Kuchei is pretty popular among the locals.

However at night, seafood, or rather Chinese dishes take centre stage.

There’s a boundary between the stalls when it comes to seating, so be sure you identify which stall you want to order from before seating.

Note that once seated, you can only order from selected stalls to dine-in.  If you were to order from a stall other than the designated stall, you will need to ‘take away’ which defeats the purpose of you sitting down.  It is the same case with drinks.

I’ve not tasted the halal restaurant on the right, so I can only recommend what’s offered from the non-halal sections.

I highly recommend the Pork Leg, Chickedn Feet Umai and Midin belacan here, regardless of which non-halal stall you are ordering from.

For drinks, fresh fruit juices are available in big sizes here as well.

Photos of dishes served here can be seen below.

How to get to Batu Lintang Food Court

During the day, most of Kuching’s busses pass by the hawker centre and so you can take a bus and stop at the bus stop just after Wisma Seberkas.  From there, you only need to walk a few metres to reach the hawker centre.

However at night, there’s no bus service and going by taxi, ride hailing services or private car is best. The map below will be of help if you need to locate the hawker centre.
