Hungry like the wolf…

Last Friday, Melissa said that a colleague of hers would be giving her a lift back to Sibu but she would be going to the Farley area on the other side of town so we would have to  go and pick her up there. That would not be a problem – in fact, anything would  be better than driving all the way to Selangau to get her.

It was around 3 when she arrived and since she left the school right after lessons had ended for the day, I was pretty sure she had not had lunch yet and I was right. So we went to the branch of this Sarawak’s own franchise in the area…

Personally, I’m not really crazy about such fast food joints but she, typical of most young people today, was delighted when I suggested dropping by there for a bite to eat. As you can see, they do have a lot of other choices besides the usual stuff like fried chicken and hamburgers…

…and Melissa wanted the fish fillet with rice and a complimentary drink (RM9.80)…

…which she wolfed down in a jiffy.

Business was not particularly busy at that time of day…

…but there were a few other customers around…and also some more at their spin-off cafe, the Red Carrot, next door.

The mum was not hungry as we had lunch earlier so she just ordered their three-layer tea…

I think that cost RM3 something so I would not say it, or anything else there for that matter, was particularly cheap, not at all.

Nevertheless, I could not resist ordering their fish burger for myself…

- my all-time favourite and I would think it is better than any fish fillet burgers anywhere else.

This comes at RM8.50 each, with a free drink…

…and inside, they have a slice of real fish – not those miserable fish cakes that you find at the other places.

Well, I enjoyed that and since I do not have it very often, I guess it is all right…and most importantly, Melissa had what she would consider a really great lunch after a week being cooped up in her school in Selangau.
