I miss you…

Don’t worry! This is not going to be an emo-post about how much I miss my daughter in New Zealand. There are things that we just have to learn to live with and life goes on…

The thing was I had not had our local specialty – the Sibu Foochow fried noodles…

…since my daughter came home in November last year. I wouldn’t say that I missed it a lot but as far as I know,  many true blue Sibu-ians living abroad or elsewhere would long for it, among other  things like the our kampua noodles and kompia. I remember once, I went on a 9-day tour with a group of people from here…and on the flight back, they simply could not wait to land so that they could rush to the nearest coffee shop to have their fix and appease their craving.

My daughter is not a fan of all three so when she was home, I did not take her to eat them and hence, I did not get to eat them myself. Anyway, I was in the vicinity of this coffee shop the other day…

…which I would usually go to for the kampua noodles and pian sip but that day, I noticed a lot of people eating the Foochow fried noodles (with gravy) so I decided to give it a try.

Following the recent increase in prices, it is now RM3.00 a plate…and if you can read Mandarin, perhaps you may interested in seeing what else they have on their menu…

I certainly was not disappointed as it turned out to be really very good…

While waiting to be served, I could hear a lot of the banging of the kuali or wok…just like at that Hokkien fried noodles stall at Lot 10 Hutong.

So if you’re looking for good authentic Foochow fried noodles, this is one place that you can go to. I liked it…and I guess you will like it too!
