Here she comes…

My young friend, ah^kam_koko’ , was in town on Saturday and we went out for a nasi kerabu lunch at this place. In fact, I had planned to go there on that very same day as I wanted to tapao some for my friend from New Zealand who would be arriving that night and she was hoping to get the chance to eat that on her flying visit to Sibu.

I told my missus not to cook dinner that night – we would just go out for dinner as I would also want to tapao some Sibu Foochow-style fried noodles for her and her family to have for supper when they had arrived…and I also bought some Sibu Foochow-style sio beeย for them as well.

We went to this restaurant and had this fried pork with salted fish and dried chilies…

…which both of us enjoyed very much…

The fried bitter gourd that we had with it was nice too…

…but the serving was a bit too big for the two of us to finish so we tapaoed what was left of it and took it home.

The bill came up to around RM20 for two persons inclusive of rice and drinks so I would say it was pretty reasonable considering that in actual fact, there was enough for three or perhaps even four persons.

After that, we went back and when it was time, I drove to the airport to wait for my esteemed guests from New Zealand to arrive…

  1. Shereen bulat yet or not? Wakakakaka… convey my regards to her, okay? ๐Ÿ˜€

    Haiyor…she was complaining that she could not squeeze into her skirt…and worse still, cannot publish this photo, that photo…because her tummy’s too big. In the end, no photo to post lor! Sigh!!! Women… LOL!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. That lucky woman!!! You are feeding her well. Make sure she tapau it back for me too ha ha..say hi to her for me ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sure will. I think she has bought some goodies to bring over for you when she flies over to the states next month… ๐Ÿ˜‰ She sure is so lucky – jetsetting all over the world, so nice.

    1. Yea, she very ‘hoh mia’ ha ha jetsetting everywhere. So she like the Sarawak Laksa? I can’t wait to see her ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hahahahaha!!! I think she’s bringing some of the sambal over for you. Be patient, ya! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Had a plateful of bitter gourd last night prepared by my lovely wife…when i said plate full,it was really plate full and we loved it to bit..

    Now Shereen must be busy savoring all those tau pau goodies from you,, you are such a darling friend………..

    Aiyor…people come from so far away, must try to make sure that she feels the trip is worthwhile… Such nice couple and son, really enjoyed their company.

  4. Fried pork with salted fish looks really good, I want it with a big bowl of rice!^^ Reasonably cheap too!

    Yes, drown the rice with the fragrant gravy… Oooooo….heavenly! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. here in Kl, usually the pork with salted fish and dried chillies comes in a claypot. I also like it very much. Goes extremely well with just plain white rice.

    Not at this place but never mind! Most important is the taste!!! Yum!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Oh, Shereen already there? Send my regards to her. Now make me jealous, she can enjoy all the food there and i know next few days sure have torturing post for me to drool….

    Now i am thinking, where you will bring her for all the makan makan….hmmmm..
    Hope she enjoys her stay in Sibu and enjoys all the food! Tell her, eat first, only worry later. hahahhaha

    She had to squeeze into her skirt…and had to take off her wedding ring – too tight. LOL!!! Ya…will post on what we all did while she and her family were here. She says she had the most wonderful time here…and would want to come again.

    1. Tell her the ring is tight not because of her eating too much. Is water retention and the humidity. Had the same problem each time I went home to Malaysia. Can’t wear my wedding ring. Way too tight ha ha.. single for a few weeks. Reach the US soil only the right slip in with no problem. Back to being married again ๐Ÿ™‚

      Ya…I told her that it happens when travelling. She so sayang Simon, must have been so painful for her to take off her wedding ring…but no choice. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. We should have a bloggers’ cum foodies convention in Sibu!! You’d make the best host! ๐Ÿ™‚

    No need lah. One waiting for another, and in the end, nobody comes. You just come over when you can make it and I’ll make sure that you’ll have the most wonderful stay – ask Shereen…she will tell you it is a trip worth making! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Dishes looks awesome!!!!….The fried pork with salted fish will be something I would love to have and…. ehemmmm..the bitter gourd looks good too. BTW, what is the yellow and white thing in the bitter gourd.. Can’t figure out.

    Salted egg. Seemed that they added boiled salted egg and fried the bits with the bitter gourd. Different style from other places. Nice also…

  9. but i think the pork is a little too wet for my liking, and the bittergourd has too much starch to cook with.. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m ok with the pork but I do agree with the starch bit! Seems that this place adds strach to all the veg dish, even the cangkuk mania. Very strange, no other places that I know of would do that. Not too fond of it…but since they taste ok, ok lah…

  10. RM20? That is very cheap!!! I love the oink oink dish

    Come, come to Sibu. We will go for this and more…lots more!!! But I guess in your case, only Papa Kucing will have to squeeze into his pants. LOL!!!

  11. Food looks delicious and homecooked! Did you finish the tapaoed food already? Did it taste as good?

    What? The things I tapaoed for Shereen? Of course…all gone! They loved the food here – so nice and so cheap, they said.

  12. fried pork with salted fish and dried chillies, must be delicious. I especially like it if it’s fried till the outer part is crispy.. yum ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nice! You too! Come on over to Sibu and we can go and eat…eat…eat!!! Yummmmm!!!!

    1. soon bro, but after seeing the last post of yours.. omg, let me go see where to buy SPAM! ๐Ÿ˜›

      Why? You like that too? I’m sure you can buy in KL, Sibu also have… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. Yum yum yum.. But I’ll pass the bittergroud. Hehehe.. Not my favourite vegetable ๐Ÿ™‚

    Did not like bitter gourd before but these days, they’re very nice, not bitter at all.

    1. I have the same sentiment with Julia. I am not a fan of bitter gourd. Just me give me the pork. ๐Ÿ˜€

      Hmmmm….you should give it another chance. I did not like it either before but now I love it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. No second chance. I will just eat bitter gourd- if it is cooked by my girlfriend, I have no other choice but to eat it. ๐Ÿ˜›

        LOL!!! After marriage and she cooks it, will you still eat it? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  14. What’s that yellow thing in the bittergourd dish? I love bittergourd and can have that over and over and over again! Yums!!

    Salted egg yolk. I did not like it when it was so very bitter but now I love it as it is not bitter anymore. Best crunchy, not overcooked.

  15. *drools

    That looks pretty good!

    Just can’t beat the prices in Sibu. I just had a dinner for two just now and it cost me RM 50. Didn’t order anything special also.

    Sweet Family, in the vicinity of the Sibu bus terminal. You’ve been here before with your family – read your post on it once. The food’s very nice and very cheap – only thing, it’s not air-conditioned…even though the place is quite open and very airy. Ya…don’t I know KL? Been slaughtered a few times and yes, the worse thing is that the food was not even good.

  16. OOOhhh….I love to eat plain stir-fried bitter gourd! Judging from the bitter gourd dish’s photo, I am very sure the cook added cornflour solution towards the end of the cooking process as I also use cornflour solution when cooking stir-fried bitter gourd which gives it that kind of ‘look’.

    I was not used to it being starchy…and it seems that [SK] doesn’t like it. It tatsed very nice though so that’s what’s most important. ๐Ÿ˜‰
