Fly me to the moon…

Well, actually I did not go to the moon – I only went to Apollo, the coffee shop located in the housing estate of the same name here in Sibu. LOL!!

My friend was telling me that the kampua noodles there were very nice…and when my niece came home for the Labour Day weekend recently, she made it a point to go there to eat, praising it to the skies. So, the other morning, I asked my missus to go out for breakfast and we made our way to that particular coffee shop.

She had the kampua noodles…

…but unfortunately, she had already tossed it before I was able to snap a picture of it.

I had the mee pok – the flat version of the kampua noodles…

…and I also ordered a plate of pian sip, the Sibu Foochow version of the Kuching kiaw or the wantan

…and unfortunately or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, my missus said that her plate of kampua noodles was more than enough for her so I had to finish that all by myself.

My verdict? It was all right but there are others that I prefer and I think they put a little bit too much msg for my liking. My missus did not feel it though…but she did agree with me on one thing – that the noodles at some other places are better.

Other than that, at RM2.50 per plate, it is more expensive than many other places…plus the kopi-o-peng (RM1.50) is also pricier than elsewhere and it’s not like it’s in the middle of town where they have to pay more for rental and what not. Tsk! Tsk!

Will I be dropping by this place again then? I guess not…
