Me again…

Yes, it’s me back at this same ol’ place again!

Well, last week, when my mum was at the medical centre, my friend, Jimmy, from Bintulu was in Sibu for two nights and he brought me one tub of cincaluk (fermented shrimps) but as I was ill-disposed at the time, I was not able to really take him out for anything good around town. We did manage, however, to squeeze in some time and drop by here, one place that he had never been before, for tea and we decided to try something new that they had on their menu – the caramel honey toast (RM10.80)…

There are a few choices including one with curry and another with bananas. We did not know how to go about eating it so we asked the young and handsome waiter to dissect it for us…

He went about it slowly, carefully taking it apart bit by bit, and the devil got the better of me and I remarked out loud, “Gosh! That reminds me of someone undressing a girl.” Muahahahahaha!!!! The poor innocent boy smiled uncomfortably and looked quite embarrassed, poor thing! Gee! I’m so bad really, I know I am! LOL!!!

Unfortunately, it was too sweet for our liking and we did not think it was anything we would want to have again…and it was definitely nothing like the vanilla mille crepe (RM6.50) that I ordered for Jimmy to try…

He had a bite of that and it left him utterly speechless – it was that good! He found it so heavenly and really loved it so much – anytime better than any cheesecake, he said.

He loved the coconut milk smoothie (RM5.50) that he had as well…

…while I had the mulberry aloe vera (RM5.50)…

…which had longans inside and was o.k. to me – something refreshing like Ribena 7Up minus the gas.

“When in Rome, do as the Romans do,” the proverb goes…so when in Sibu, do what the Sibuians do – eat kompia (bagel-like charcoal-baked unleavened bread) and I ordered for him the ones with pork belly (RM4.20)…

Wait a minute! I thought it used to cost something like RM3.90…or was it RM3.60? Sigh!!! What to do? The prices of everything else are rising so I guess they do not have much choice but to do the same, instead of scrimping on quantity or quality just to keep the price down.

Jimmy’s just like me! He loved the fatty pork more than the other version with minced meat (RM3.20)…

…and I guess that explains our shape and size. Muahahahahaha!!!!

Whatever it was, we certainly enjoyed our tea and the little time I had to spare…but of course, Jimmy will be back again, sooner or later…and rest assured that he’s looking forward to coming back here to try the other goodies that they have to offer. Yum! Yum!

  1. wow, that is a big block of french toast!! errr, curry or banana?? hmmm, interesting to have curry french toast topped with ice cream!! haha.. but both also very fattening i think wouldn’t wanna try, or maybe just one little slice of thet~~ :p

    French? I think it’s just toast – dunno how they put it altogether in a block like that…and inside, they had cubes of toast. Enough for at least four people, I would say – didn’t know then and wanted to give it a try. πŸ˜‰

  2. When I saw the 1st photo, I go ‘wow, that looks so impressive’ , Simon said ‘it looks so expensive”.. Lol! We have the one with the curry and it’s called Chow Bunny and it’s a dish from South Africa. We of course will definitely drool on the pork belly kompia while we were having our breakfast of ham sandwich… again! Can’t wait to visit u again and please bring us to this place, okay. Have a great day today, Arthur.

    Come, come… Make it soon! πŸ˜‰

  3. I’d choose the Mille crepe Over the toast anytime but kompia is a must. I’m really surprised , Sibu never fails to come up w food surprises. Have a good weekend Arthur !

    Ahhhh!!! I see Annie has done a good job in converting you – die-hard kompia lover now eh? So? When are you coming to Sibu? I am waiting…. πŸ˜‰

  4. pork belly kompiah anytime better than the honey toast. Poor boy…dont know what he was thinking when u made that remark.

    Definitely. LOL!!! Probably thinking – who’s this dirty old man? Muahahahahaha!!!! πŸ˜€

  5. Looks super yummy…..

    Have you been here? Can drop by sometime to give it a try – nice place, nice food… One of my preferred places in town… πŸ˜‰

  6. mille crepes are the best, no matter where I tried it, in PJ, in Malacca, even at the recent Nuffnang’s award night, I love mille crepes, truly madly deeply πŸ™‚

    Lucky you, got to eat for free, I guess? πŸ˜‰ Was there with Huai Bin today – he says the Malacca ones are better in that their crepes are thinner…but he likes what we have here nonetheless.

  7. Wow!!!..the vanila mille crepe, I love that. Knowing that I am not a fatty pork person, I opt for the minced meat kompia.The mulberry aloe vera drinks certainly look refreshing and quenching.

    So when are you coming over? When is your son’s next holiday? Bring him along… Wink! Wink! πŸ˜‰ LOL!!!

  8. That’s a huge block of toast ! Is the bread hard like rock ? I prefer fluffy type of texture.

    The mille crepe sure will make one speechless ya. I love it too.

    Nope, it’s crusty…like toast. The bread’s fine…just the sweetness of the honey – a bit too much for my liking. The mille crepe’s heavenly!

  9. Ohhhh this looks so good. I haven’t eaten kompia since I came back.

    HAHAHHA

    Good one, the comment to the boy. Touche.

    LOL!!! He was not on duty today when we were there. So you had your kompia already….though you like the soaked-in-sauce Tiong Hua Road ones more. Thanks for the lunch treat, Huai Bin. We’ll go out again sometime before you go back to KL… πŸ˜‰

  10. Nice toast and crispy kompia! Tasted the one sold at a corner coffee shop in Rejang Park. Yummy. Any place selling tastier kompia???

    You mean the small shop in the middle of the ground floor of the cinema complex…or in one of the other coffee shops. I prefer the ones here a lot more than elsewhere – not too sure if there are places that are better.

  11. Aiyo, pity the poor innocent boy bully by naughty “old man” LOL!!!!

    That caramel honey toast look very “full”, haven’t eat, i already can feel the “zai”.

    Mille Crepe, now i have to go and hunt, so long i have not eat it already.

    Kompia look so gorgeous as usual, my top favourite.

    When Yee Ling and small kucing and gang are there, make sure must order that kampua, kompia, foo chow red wine mee suah and can opt this toast out.

    Hope to be able to bring all of them here when they’re in town – definitely one place not to be missed… Hahhhh!!!! Sometimes, looks can be deceiving – maybe the boy was pretending to be shy only. You know young people today – very advanced one. LOL!!! πŸ˜€ Ya…skip the toast. We’ll go for the mille crepe and all the nice things there when you come back to Sibu next… πŸ˜‰

  12. Kesian the boy….he looks a bit paiseh..ahahaha. I think I ll prefer to go for the mille crepe.

    Aiyor…so you think I am so bad kah? 😦 Muahahahahaha!!!!! Yup, the mille crepe would be the better choice compared to the toast…but the kompia is a must-have as well when there.

  13. I miss the mille crepe too! I crave for it more because I am having only ‘confinement food’ at the moment. Slurp!

    Ah!!! So you’ve delivered. Congrats to you and your hubby. Thank goodness it wasn’t before delivery or your baby would salivate plus-plus…very smelly.

  14. Owh. I did eat kong piah when I was in Sibu. But I did buy kong piah and eat at home XD .
    The crepe and drinks looks so delicious!

    You mean you didn’t eat? You must try the ones here when you come to Sibu again – they’re my favourite in town. The crepe and drinks and quite a lot of other things are very nice as well. Worth dropping by…

    1. I didn’t get to eat it in Sibu. =( The shop just ran out of kong piah when Huai Bin brought me around that day.

      Same place? Gosh! Tough luck. I guess that was during Chinese New Year so they were not able to get fresh supplies. Probably underestimated the demand. I never had any problem whenever I dropped by the place.
