KOTA SAMARAHAN, Nov 28: Samarahan residents no longer have to travel far to Kuching city for a fine dining experience as the opening of a new Chinese restaurant at La Promenade Mall fills that niche.

Kota Samarahan Municipal Council (MPKS) chairman Dato Peter Minos thanked Hock Seng Lee (HSL) for bringing in the Foo Man Ting restaurant, describing the food as “really good” and on par with similar establishments in Kuching.

“Now the people of Samarahan have an alternative place for lunch and dinner. Previously they have to go to Kuching city for good dining or entertainment with friends.

“Located on the first floor of HSL Tower, the new restaurant offers really good Chinese food. They roped in a chief chef who has many years of experience of cooking and preparing food in Singapore and other places,” he said in a statement today.

At the same time, Minos pointed out the quality life in Samarahan is getting better by the day, with the private sector bringing in fresh ideas and new initiatives in various sectors of the economy.

“MPKS is looking forward to a 5-star hotel in Kota Samarahan. If there is one, the picture will be complete. It is a matter of time that such hotel comes up here.

“As an educational centre and a medical hub, Kota Samarahan needs people with skills and talents in improving the quality of the local people’s life like setting up hotels, cafes and restaurants and all other service-related things,” he added. — DayakDaily
