…is called The Noodle House (approximate GPS: 2.290983,111.828911)…
I heard about it sometime ago…and I even went looking for it once with my daughter but we did not manage to find it. Finally, I spotted it the other day – I could not find it previously as I was looking for it among the new blocks of shophouses in the other direction. It is actually among the shophouses right behind the Sibu Central Police Station, accessible either from Hua Kiew Road or Lai Chee Lane (where BSN is located). Anyway, I dropped by for breakfast and had this…
…their current special of the day, the sizzling beef kampua (RM8.80) and they claimed it was freshly imported New Zealand beef some more. Well, considering the amount of beef they gave, I would not think that it was really that expensive. That would have made quite a big slab of steak if it had not been cut into small bite-size pieces. But the most important thing, of course, was that I found it to be really very delicious.
This was their wanton QQ noodles soup (RM5.50)…
…which was nice but if I wanted something like that, I think I would just go to a coffee shop for their piansip mee soup – that would be a whole lot cheaper and it wouldn’t taste too bad either.
Their deep-fried dumplings (RM5.50)…
…were nice too but I felt there was too much meat inside. It was all minced meat while I would pretty much prefer some sengkuang/mangkuang (Chinese turnip) perhaps or some kind of veg…and perhaps, a lower price as well.
They do have a lot of things to choose from on their menu…
…and I liked this – a part of their decor in one corner…
All in all, I would give it the thumbs up for taste, service, comfort and ambience…but considering the prices, you can be sure that I would not be dropping by too often. However, it definitely would be a nice place to bring friends to sit and chat and while the time away or if you want to talk business in a classier environment…plus they have their own private parking lots, so parking is free.
So, if anybody is interested in dropping by, here’s their business card…

A bit expensive to me… but if it’s really nice, I guess the money is well spent! 😀
Ya, compared to the humble kopitiam…but cheaper if compared to those West Malaysian franchises where almost everything comes with a double-digit and may not even be nice.
I dun go to double digits restaurants or cafe… unless it’s special occasions. Expensive leh…and like you said, it’s not so nice too sometimes. But I found that TGI Fridays is not bad, even though it’s double digit… cuz the portion is usually very big and the food is nice too. 😀
There’s one at Jalan Sultan Ismail – Life Centre, I think. Always wanted to drop by but never did – same with The Ship. Been to Hard Rick though – very nice also.
*drools over homework* Noodlesssss….oodles n oodles of goodness these are !! 🙂
Poor girl…but you can cook your own there! Not hard to get the ingredients! Wink! Wink!
Now…I feel so hungry..I don’t have breakfast yet…nyum..nyum..love noodle…
You belanja me, I can take you there anytime. Yum! Yum! Hahahahahaha!!!!
wow.. even kampua is on a sizzling hot plate.. everything is sizzling now.. lol..
It was the beef that was sizzling. The kampua tasted good on its own…and when mixed with the beef and the gravy, best lah!!! Drool! Drool! 😉
definitely would be a nice place to bring friends to sit and chat <– bring me! mwahahaha!! sizzling beef kampua?? *DROOL*
No problem at all! When are you coming to Sibu? We go dating there, k? Hahahahaha!!!! 😀
The qq wanton noodles looking very appealing. Considering the presentation,i think the prices is quite reasonable. Having said that, to me to have kampua,i prefer the ambience of ‘kopitiam’ white singlets,a few cats strolling nearby, the ceiling fans blowing away….. Now I am waiting for everyone to wake up so I can cook my kampua bovril noodles for brekkie too! :)!
No complaints about that…and even kopitiam these days – Rasa Sayang is airconditioned…if you can get a seat inside, that is. Always so crowded…and may be forced to sit by the five-foot way or even in the parking lots up front! RM2.20 only…what is there to complain and tastewise, it’s the best around!
OMG! Sizzling beef kampua ! Something different and it look very very good!!
Hmmmmmppppp…you make me hungry!
Ok, i want to try this, when i go back next round.
When? When? Two years from now? Kids big already, can travel…should check online all the time for the zero or cheap airfares…and come over whenever you can. Come, I’ll take you to this place… 🙂
hey, these look good!!! i love the texture of these kampua mee… a Must Visit noodle house.. lol…
Good, very good… Worth a try. So back to the same ol’ question – when are you coming?
looks good. but aiya if go back sibu, must eat authentic $2.50 kampua!
Hahahaha!!! A true blue kampua lover! RM2.20 only! 😉
Yeay, now got GPS dy 😀
I’m eating noodles now Stp… ordinary noodles.. nothing Sibu-ish.. 😦 boring..
Must keep up with the times, mana boleh kalah! LOL!!! 😀 Kesian…come to Sibu, we go for these special noodles! 😉
eh….i can see my ring in the photo hehehehe…..yup the food there a bit expensive but the taste not bad….the fried dumpling was good….i dont mind going there again…cheers STP!
Got kah? LOL!!! Lucky thing not your botak head…or your round tummy! LOL!!! Ya…the place is nice, food is nice…lama2 go one time, relax…chit-chat, ok lah!
This will have to wait for my next trip liao coz this time my meal schedule all fully packed 😛
By the way, do you know if there’s any kopitiam where we can watch World Cup in Sibu?
Lots!!! Those coffee shops around Loke Ming Yuen/Uncle Dom/Mitsu area…all got widescreen tv. Very crowded at night, people watching football…
Chef seems to be more adventurous nowadays. You had the sizzling beef with Kampua whereas I recently had sambal with kampua at Thomson corner opposite Sacred Heart School.
And talking about imported franchise cafe. Well, I recently had some Vietnamese beef noodle at one of the newer ones and all I can say was….no more next time. In fact, I have never tasted any Vietnamese beef noodle in Malaysia that taste like the real thing I once had in Vietnam years ago.
Thanks for the co-ordinate.
I’ve tried the sambal kampua at Thomson – not really great. Their seafood kampua is very nice.
I did say those franchise cafes are not worth going – expensive and not nice. I had Vietnamese beef noodles at a stall in the coffee shop next to Pathlab (Blacksmith Road) long long ago…and another time at Eden (Selemo Roundabout, near Comfort Furniture) – both just so-so…but not too bad. Even our local beef noodles can be better. They may have at this place – you can go and try.
i want that plate of noodle! yumyum!
Come, come to Sibu…I’ll take you there! 🙂
wow…this is definitely better than the noodle house i went to =_=”
perhaps they should consider importing our sarawak kolo mee noodles or kampua mee noodles…lol
Ya…I saw the one in your post – not worth the price and the calories. These are pretty good and though more expensive, worth having…once in a while.
The beef kampua is huge O_O”
One thing about these cafes that seem to be sprouting all over like mushrooms after the rain – the servings are huge – best to share between two persons.
One of the owners is an ex-shs student. He was in my class in form 4.
Ya? I hear one is an IT grad. Looks like there’s more money in food… 🙂
Sizzling beef kampua looks super delicious to me bro. 😀
Indeed! Really nice! Wouldn’t mind having that again! 😀
I think we have Noodle House over here too but I havent been in yet
So far I’ve only seen the Hongkong Noodles House elsewhere with all the roast duck, roast chicken, roast pork…and they only serve wanton noodles. Been to one in Sg Wang, one in Mid Valley…and one in Kuching. All more or less the same, all nice.
“Live well, laugh often, love much.”
That is really a nice phrase for them to place in their restaurant.
They give coupons that can be used on future visits…and in the coupon, it says: Eat more, save more, laugh more! I think the people laughing would be the owners of the eatery – laughing all the way to the bank. LOL!!!
this is new for me. the mee look nice, really look nice.
i wonder if go to Sibu, i dont think 1 week can finish all those food u introduce before.
One week only? You will have to eat 6 times a day – breakfast, 10 o’ clock tea, linch, four o’ clock tea, dinner and supper…then, maybe you’ll be able to eat everything. LOL!!!
Since this place is a mere 300+ meters from where I work, decided to go have a try today. Yes, it’s worth the RM8.80 for the sizzling beef Kampua and like you said, the beef serving size was generous. I notice the shop glass front will be hit by direct sunlight in the afternoon so I doubt the 3 air conditioning units would be sufficient to cope with the extra heat.
Yes, you just have to cross to road… LOL!!! I told you it was nice…and quite worth the money. Oh? I went in the morning so it was ok. Must take note and not sit that side should I happen to drop by in the afternoon, tnx. 🙂
