Slippery when wet…

I had something slippery for dinner that night – ikan keli (catfish)…

…when Huai Bin and I went to the Payung Cafe here in Sibu (See previous post).

They call it the Payung Fish Rice in their menu…

…and it is actually ikan keli cooked with lots of ginger and black beans and everything else, served with rice, and I must say that I really loved it a lot. It was very nicely done…but I think the ones that we cook at home ourselves have an edge over theirs – we would adulterate ours with lots of brandy, XO no less. LOL!!! Next time when I go for that, I’ll bring my own liquor…

I also love their belimbing prawns with rice but that night,  Huai Bin opted for that with spaghetti…

He let me try a bit and I thought it was very nice too – very compatible, I must say. I certainly would not mind having that sometime – when I’m not in the mood for rice.

We had the Payung rojak as well…

…and the serving was so large that I would think that would be good for at least four people.

I had their jelly pisang while Huai Bin wanted to try their durian milk shake…

This is what bloggers do all the time when they dine out – take snapshots of the food and drinks. LOL!!!

That was indeed an enjoyable dinner – something very different from what one can get elsewhere, that’s for sure and this is one place that I would not mind going to again and again…
