Miri Golf Course Lolita's Laksa - Best in Town?

You may like a round of golf on a Saturday morning and enjoy the great sunshine and outdoors at the Miri Golf Club. You might like to walk to the end of the new water channel to the sea and enjoy a spot of wind and watch boats come and go. And you might like to watch just the beautiful scenery of old and new buildings in Miri across the Miri river from the Peninsular at the old Ferry Point where the ghost of the Nightingale (Many would remember that) might appear any time.

But I like to linger at Lolita's Pondok at the end of the Golf Course.

There you get a sweet smiling proprietress who make good Kuching Laksa. Born of a Melanau father and a Kuching Malay mother Lolita is proud of her parentage and her laksa. Sure enough when you have your first bowl you will go back again and again for more!!

She makes this chillie sauce herself.

Happy Lolita and her assistant run a very neat joint. You don't have to be golfer to enjoy her laksa. Feel free to walk through the golf course and order your bowl!!

Here a groundsman looks happy with his green health drink!!

Part of the golf course next to the road called Jalan Peninsular.

Shady trees make this place a nice green lung in busy and concretised Miri.

So on a hot day you can have a quick retreat here. No need to have a golf club membership to enjoy a delectable bowl of creamy laksa and a nice blended  green lime juice . It will set you back less than RM10 per person.

When are you coming over to Miri to visit your friends and relatives?

You are the second person I comment about golf. In Sarawak, the rich and famous play golf.

In NZ, any one can play if they want to. The public golf courses are very cheap. ( We don't play.)

The golf club in Kuching has giant sized bowls of noodles.

We as a whole family, entourage of 50 had a dinner at the Miri Golf Club. My uncle who plays a lot of golf, treated us there. It was in 1995 when my brother got married . But there is not much impression, because we were so rushed with all the traveling and meeting up with all the siblings and relatives.

Hi Ann
It's nice to read your comment....Here golf playing is quite a status symbol. I don't play golf because I don't like sweating in the sun for long hours.

So which brother got married in Miri in 1995? I was already here.
