I had been wanting to go to this coffee shop here in Sibu for the shrimp piansip (wanton/dumplings) ever since I saw kongkay’s post on it a couple of months back. Lady’s Cafe is the name and it’s along Lanang Road, after the lane to SRB Sacred Heart (Chinese), on the left if you are going from the town.

Lady Cafe, Sibu

Pollie may be interested to know that the guy in the red t-shirt on the left (sitting down) is her ex-colleague, Mike. I did not really know what to order but I did see on the sign that “piansip udang” (shrimp/prawn wanton/dumplings) were available at 60 sen each. Then I saw something somebody else was having, so I just said I wanted the same. In the end, I got the dumplings (RM3.00)…

…but there were no whole shrimps nor prawns inside. I was expecting something like har kau but I guess it was just minced meat with shrimps added, the way we prepare the filling for sio bee/siew mai or ngor hiang. Then for RM3.50, I also got this yong tofu kind of soup; they call it sup campur (mixed soup)…

Sup campur/Mixed soup

On the whole, it was pretty nice…but not to the extent that I would go through all the trouble to go there to eat it. I may just go again should I happen to be in the neighbourhood, that’s it. Incidentally, while I was there, I happened to see this coffee shop round the corner…

Sibu coffee shop sign

What hall? A coffee shop’s a coffee shop! A rose by any other name would smell as sweet!…And cripes! Talk about blowing your own horn…! Nice food indeed! LOL!!!

Anyway, across the road from Lady Cafe, at the traffic lights, they had pretty nice beef noodles (but nowhere near those in KK) at that corner coffee shop at the junction…

…but I have not gone there for quite sometime so I would not know whether it is still good or not. Or you can head to the shops near the Sibu Bus Terminal, and right opposite the pathetic-looking market (which has hardly any business)…

Sibu bus terminal market

…is this restaurant, Yi Shiang. I’ve gone there quite a number of times, even for dinner. The food is nice and the prices are reasonable, somewhere along the same line as places such as Ruby, Nice House, Mum’s or Y2K.

In the morning, they serve a few selected items for breakfast/brunch including beef noodles…

…but the other day, I had this bowl of bak kut teh noodles…

It used to be nicer, more fragrant…and with bak kut teh, I would prefer those packet egg noodles instead of the bigger freshly-made ones. Besides, for RM6.50, I felt it was a bit too expensive and given the choice, I would sooner go for something else elsewhere…

  1. The Yong Tau Foo looks pretty fresh. Yeah, the BKT noodle price is on the high side.

    Yes. The ngui chap in KK only RM7 but you get so much meat and stuff!!! I think it was around RM5 at another place in town…but they may have increased the price too. I won’t know cos I have not been there lately.

  2. Yi Shiang is a restaurant? From the photo it looks more like a massage centre to me. heheh. But i guess not much difference also lar, they both serve chinese cuisine.

    The “health centre” is upstairs. Lots in Sibu…with lots of China dolls!! I had expected kpenyu to notice that but he’s somewhat late! Looks like you’re just as bad…birds (Oops!!!) of the same feather! LOL!!!

  3. you should go out more often and give us a tour of the eateries in town, with streets included…

    I try…and I would give the prices as well, so people will have a fair idea as to whether it’s worth going or not.

  11. Almost every block of shophouses in Sibu has at least one coffee shop which houses several food stalls. Why not document all of them and sell to the authority (may be Ministry of Tourism or the Sarawak Tourism Board). Next year is Visit Sibu Year and a food guide book like that will be very useful.

    You can work on that…and I can be your English editor! LOL!!!

  12. RM60x25(ie average daily visitors)=RM1500. ….not enough meh.. I am the leader la…

    So much money kah?…You leader?…Umm…I think we need a volunteer auditor to ensure there is no misappropriation of stp’s camera fund! KNB available or not?…..Hey! Wait a minute! On second thoughts, I think we need a neutral party!…..Zewt? Jienster? Mar? Any other accountant out there? Hahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!

  13. I am not neutral mer? Hahah….u scared me n STP go makan makan in RUby with the money is it? then we will buy RM300 camera. Can even give you RM1500 receipt for evidence. So auditor also verify the fund is not misappropriated. kekhekhe

    LOL!!! I know the tricks in your book!!! Easy to get receipt!! Oops!!!
