Standing in the shadows of love…

I had a post sometime ago on the different varieties of fried kway teow (flat rice noodles) that we can get in Sibu and I did mention that it is usually overshadowed by the more popular Foochow fried noodles…

…or the kampua mee.

Well, the other morning, I stopped by this coffee shop for breakfast and decided to have the Foochow fried kway teow there…

I had the fried noodles before and I thought it was comparatively one of the nicer places that I had been to. This may look like the Cantonese-style fried noodles to some of you but actually the taste is really quite different…

…and there’s no egg in the gravy, if you noticed. Well, it was quite nice, quite worth having for a change…but I’ve always preferred noodles.

Anyway, tomorrow I will be flying over to Penang to attend my niece’s wedding on Sunday night, arriving at around noon time…so you can expect that the first thing upon landing, I will be making a beeline to the nearest Penang char kway teow stall for the celebrated local delicacy. Care to join me, anyone? LOL!!!
