Kuching: Top 3 Places To Watch World Cup

taken from fifa.com

Unlike KL with its many 24hr Mamak restaurants, Kuching's Kopi Tiams are less industrious.
Most eateries in Kuching close by 12pm even with the World Cup on.
What can a person with a Sport-less Astro & friends who have to work in the morning do if he wants to enjoy the 2.30am matches?

They'll do what I have been doing... go out in search of the best places to watch the beautiful game.
I've driven through most of Kuching city early in the morning for the past week to bring to you a list of top 3 places to watch the World Cup.

Venues were selected based on the following criteria:
Big Screen - Don't want a bloody TV. Might as well stay home!
Crowd - Who wants to watch football alone?
Food - It's late & mommy is sleeping. I'm hungry.
Atmosphere - I need to feel like I'm at the stadium in South Africa.

#3 M2 Food Court, Jalan Song 
Biggest Screen, Worst Atmosphere
If you have a large group of varsity friends or teachers (who are still on holiday btw), this is the place to be.
It has the largest screen you'll find in Kuching & plenty of tables.
There is only a burger stall open at 2.30am but the burgers are awesome!
The atmosphere is bad because there are less people here & the volume of the telecast is too low for total immersion.

#2 - Siang Siang Corner, 3rd Mile 
Best Atmosphere & Food, Small Screens
If you've got the munchies at 2.30am & you want more than just a slab of meat in between 2 buns, this coffee shop is the place to be.
It has got Chicken Rice, Kolo Mee, Kueh Chap & etc available at even 2.30am!
The area is small so the small screens are close enough for good viewing & the combined volume of the 6 tvs around the coffee shop really puts you in the mood!

#1 - Premier 101 Food Area 
Big Elevated Screen, Good Crowd
The best will have to go to this coffee shop.
The elevated big screen means everyone will be able to enjoy the game, it manages to always pull a crowd (even at 2.30am) & there is a Western Cuisine stall open for a fattening French Fries indulgence.
Plenty of seats for big groups & singles who prefer to sit alone (like me).
My only complaint is the volume of the game is too soft. Crank it up, dude!

I hope you've found this guide useful.
Do leave a comment if you've found better!

Forza Italia!
