Like I said…

Like I said a couple of posts ago, I would go back to this coffee shop…

TOTO Cafe Sibu

…to try the mee sua (thread/string longevity noodles) served in chicken soup cooked with ginger and traditional Foochow red wine, the reason being the fact that I saw a lot of people eating it that day so I took that as an indication that it would be really very good.

I ordered a bowl (RM5.00) of that…

…and I must say that I was a bit disappointed when it was served. I think I would get something a lot more substantial elsewhere but then again, the price may range to up to RM6.00 or more…and RM9.80 here.

The meat was well-marinated and was thus reddish in colour…

…but I did not really enjoy it as it was way too gingery for my liking. I know a lot of people do enjoy that – having that very strong ginger taste in the soup but not me.

That same day, I also bought some of the deep fried or koi (yam cake) that they were selling at that shop at 40 sen a piece…

– 5 pieces for RM2.00.

They were pretty good but I remember the time when they would probably be sold at 10 sen per piece or 4 for RM1.00. Well, never mind! The purchasing power is in my hands and I have the choice not to buy if I think it isn’t really worth it. I think I’ll just wait for my mother-in-law to make and then I can fry my own – after all, I’m not really crazy about those Chinese cakes…
