My ex-student, Xavier, is back in town again on a week-long holiday so the other day, we went out for breakfast together.
Well, any true blue Sibu-ian who has been away even for a while would have this craving for kampua noodles and since he loves beef, I decided to take him here so that he could have this sizzling pepper beef kampua (RM8.80)…
I guess that would be something like killing two birds with one stone.
I decided that I would try something else in the menu and was thinking about one of their congee selections but in the end, I decided to have their mee sua (string noodles) or Foochow longevity noodles instead…
It was all right but a bit too strong on the ginger for me…and I would love to have a lot of traditional Foochow red wine in it. I must say that at RM9.80 a bowl, that was extremely pricey – I can get the same thing but a lot better elsewhere at a much lower price. Well, I suppose when you go and eat at a classier, air-conditioned place, you should be prepared to pay more…but still, I would expect not just the price but the quality as well to be a class above the rest.
Still, it’s a nice place to go to and sit around in comfort and eat and chat the whole day. They even have their own parking spaces so you do not need to worry about paying any parking fee.
