Come and get it…

I have mentioned this place before in an earlier post when I bought some umai from there and I said that the kacang ma was very delicious, a must-have, in fact. I dropped by the place today and I am doing them a favour by posting about it. This is the 3-Q Fast Food Takeaway… 

3-Q Fast Food Takeway

…located to the left on the ground floor of the middle block at the Sibu Medical Centre. The proprietresses are three sisters, and I have known two of them since the time when I was studying in Form 6 in Methodist Secondary School, both of them renowned athletes from Sibu. One of them, Q-Ee, was noted as “the girl who beat Marina Chin”, if I am not mistaken, in the SEA Games many, many years ago…but I don’t think most of you are old enough to know either of them. This is the logo of their shop…

You may notice through the glass panel that they do sell fruits and vegetables as well. They did not use to when they first started but it seems they have expanded their business. I think this is for the convenience of those people tied up with their sick next-of-kin admitted at the medical centre…and also working mothers stopping by to buy the fast food for lunch or dinner. It certainly would save them the trouble of making a trip to the market.

As for the fast food, you get a wide selection to choose from daily. One of the Q-sisters will cook at home and bring over at around 10 to 11 a.m. As I have said already, the kacang ma is a must-have and I also like the Black Vinegar Pork Leg. They sometimes have curry, rendang or kurma. The good thing is they change the menu every day so you do not have to eat the same stuff all the time unlike some of those economical fast food stalls in the coffee shops in the town. This was what they had today…

3Q menu for the day 2

Ooo…what’s that? Fried daun bandung (tapioca leaves)! I bought that right away…as well as some chicken curry, and that came up to RM13.00, RM3.00 for the veg and RM10.00 for the curry – enough for two meals for two persons (one of them extra-large, of course). I was quite sceptical at first about the tapioca leaves as normally, I would pound them before cooking! Well, my fears were unfounded – they were VERY nice!!! And the best part was they cost only RM3.00!

According to the Q-sister, they will have kacang ma on Monday…but be forewarned that if you go after 12 noon or 12.30, there may not be much/any left. It would be wise to call first to book say, RM10.00 and collect it later. For that, you can get one big bowl, enough for two meals, at least! Their contact numbers are 019-8198852 or 016-8882524 or 016-8788584. Give it a try and if you like it, say you heard it from me! Bon appetit!!!
