Friday on my mind…

It was Friday yesterday, so I decided to go to Yong Siong Cafe that Kongkay posted about recently. It is located along Lanang Road, the shophouses to the left after the first roundabout if you are going from town. According to him, the cook was originally from Min Kong but probably he was still sleeping when I went. A woman was doing the cooking, but I still went ahead and ordered a plate of Foochow fried noodles with fish…

It was okay, perhaps a bit too much msg to my liking…and I think I prefer the noodles at Min Kong, even without the prawns. However, I noticed that they used pretty good fresh fish unlike many places where they would just give you those slices of frozen fish fillet.

Then, around noon, I had to send my friend, Jimmy, to the airport for his flight back to Bintulu right after his meeting here. Well, we did have time for a quick lunch on the way and I reckoned the quickest would be at this barbecued and roast meat place at Mei Le Cafe at the Delta Commercial Centre near my house.

I requested for an assortment of barbecued pork ribs, some char siew and the sausage thingy. At least, I had the decency to skip the sar-chan sio bak, the roasted three-layer pork belly. LOL!!! Other than that, we also had some roast chicken and roast duck…

I’m not too sure but I think the dishes of meat cost around RM10-12 and the rice was RM2; it is now a ringgit a plate, no longer the old price of 50 sen each. Inclusive of drinks, it was less than RM20.00 for 2 persons. The brother operates the stall at the coffee shop opposite Public Bank in the town and both stalls are very popular. This one opens earlier in the morning selling roast duck and chicken only. The barbecued stuff will be available only around 11.30 a.m. onwards and will usually be sold out over lunchtime.

I know! I know! I don’t usually take meat on Fridays as far as possible, so to make up for the indulgence during lunch, I just opened a can of sardines for dinner to eat with rice and dabai and terbulus. LOL!!!

  1. yesterday night i went out for dinner too! 😀
    everything also increases price already! 😦 poor me 😦

    Never mind! A couple more years, graduated already…working and drawing high salary! Poor me, have to depend on measly pension…but I’m not complaining. Still can get by. I think many people a lot worse off than me…so just be happy! 🙂

  2. Are you trying to make me craving more for dabai?

    Ur colleague didn’t buy for you? Don’t tell me you finished it all in one sitting? Never mind…can come over for the weekend and buy lots!!! And I can take you jalan2 cari makan!

  3. I love the ‘sha zhang bak’. Normally, i will have lunch after school there. Quite nice

    Oooo…the fat! The cholesterol! I love it…especially with sambal belacan, but have to control lah! You’re still young, so I guess it isn’t so bad. LOL!

  4. The bbq pork ribs and char siew looks very succulent and tasty. Is the meat tender?

    They’re very nice…juicy and tender too! I’m sure you get lots over there but in Sibu, there are only a sprinkling of good places.

  5. definitely a droll worthy usual 😀

    The char siew place is near your house. Were you one of those who would queue up on Chinese New Year’s Eve and join in the mad scramble for the roast duck? LOL!!!

  6. My goodfriend just dropped by to give me some pressies after 1mth in Shanghai. Her hubby on sabbatical n doing research in uni there. She had really nice pork belly over there cooked in mini claypot! I was so happy to discover where the chinese sausage is in Sibu when back there, the ‘laktong’ it is in the esplanade near the old WTK office. real yummy! We had steamed tassie oysters for dinner tonite with ‘pinot noir’!!I heard that the side effect is that one can get very amorous! Hehehe!!! U sure been eating out a lot these days,STP!

    Never heard of the laktong! Thought it’s called lap cheong/kwan chiang or something? So ur hubby ate a lot of the oysters? Kept u busy all nite? ROTFLMAO!!!…Having visitors, so must bring them out to eat lor! Last nite, also got…so you can expect a post on that soon!

  7. Dabai and tebulus… more than indulgence if you ask me. Just as well.. no one asked. I had dabai and ‘long kiam hu”

    Hehehehehe….! All in the same boat!

  8. Now everything seems to be more expensive. I love rice. But to foochow fried noodle really looks great. Ha =)

    If you order the usual char siew rice, it should be around the usual RM3-4.00 still… Bet you’ve never eaten Foochow fried noodles before. Can’t get over there…and I used to crave for it. Didn’t like the Cantonese fried or the Hokkien fried noodles! Not the same!…..So when are you coming over to try it?

  9. I was sitting at the table near this stall on CNY Eve early this year and watched first hand how civilized Sibu people rushed and grabbed the roasted duck (even though they were hot) the moment after they were put on the table.

    My mom bought the roasted duck a day before CNY eve, so no need to rush, no need to fight, etc. 😀

    Personally I prefer the five-spice braised duck (with hard boiled eggs). Aiyor! New Year must have new duck…how can two-day old one? Hahahahahahaha!!!!
