Obviously…

I guess it’s pretty obvious where I went for lunch yesterday…

NoodleHouse double choc mille crepe

Well, my daughter’s friend, her coursemate to be exact, was in town so I took them out for lunch and we shared that slice of the double chocolate mille crepe (RM8.80) for dessert. I must say that it swept her off her feet – she obviously loved it so much that she wentΒ oohsΒ and ahhhs as she enjoyed every bite of it!

So, what did I order for myself? This is new on their menu and I decided to give it a try – their sizzling roast pork spare ribs with honey (RM21.90)…

I must say that it was really very good. I loved the very tasty seasoning…and the pork was not too tough though it was quite a hassle trying to eat it with a knife and a fork. After some tedious wrestling with the meat, I decided to take matters into my own hands and went on enjoying it without the cutlery. The potato wedges were good too…and I was so full towards the end that I let Melissa have the sweet corn.

For one thing, I would think it was a bit pricey and considering that there was quite a lot for one person to handle (no problem for me, of course), perhaps they should just give one slab of the meat and reduce the price to make it a lot more affordable. I’m sure more people would want to order it then.

Melissa had the Foochow mee sua (string/thread noodles) or what they call the long life noodles (RM9.90)…

I’ve always liked the mee sua here even though one would have to pay more than at the coffee shop stalls (RM6-8.00 usually)…but their bowls are smaller and you do not get so much meat, I think.

Her friend had the sizzling braised chicken noodles (RM10.80) which came out steaming hot…

I tried a bit and I would say that it was very nice too…

I would consider ordering that myself the next time I drop by the place.

All in all, it was a delightful lunch and what’s most important was that Melissa’s friend was thrilled to finally drop by the place that she had read and heard so much about and she enjoyed herself a lot. Well, that’s Sibu food plus Sibu hospitality for you…

Anybody else planning to come to town for a visit soon?

  1. over heard at the meeting last monday, apparently no more poomba of tat kind in Kapit… neway, u should operate a tour service for those going to Sibu… sibu tua hia…

    No more? Maybe not the season, usually more during the fruit season… 😦 No need to operate lah! Anybody coming, I will always welcome and take around one… πŸ˜‰

  2. Don’t complain!! That pork dish is very cheap with a huge slab of meat and sides!! As for the sizzling mee, it looks so delicious but Simon will not be too thrilled with the raw egg.. Hehehe.I read a review from a blogger yesterday regarding the Mille Crepe in Nadeje in Melaka and she too wasn’t too impressed with them. At least now I know I’m not imagining things *wipes sweat* :))

    A lot of bloggers have blogged about that one. Most reviews favourable but I noticed three things – they have more flavours but they’re more expensive and they looked very untidy – not nicely and neatly laid out like those here. A friend said their crepes are thinner but the taste is the same. Cheap! Ah well…considering that it is less than NZ$10.00, you can say it is cheap for you people there where a plate of nasi lemak would cost as much…or more. LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  3. 7 early 8 early already drooling over the food. I am a noodle person and definitely love the sizzling braised chicken noodles and the mee sua looks great too. Yummy!!!…Yummy!!!!….

    Wah!!! You’re early today. You love noodles? Lucky you! People say eating noodles make you fat, but you’re so slim leh? Your son’s going to have his long summer vacation soon? Come, bring him over for a visit for a few days – stay at my place, no problem at all… You’ll love it here.

    1. My son is going for his industrial training soon from mid June to end of July. Then going to Bali with his friends and will be back to Kuching early August for his holidays. Me, so slim meh. You haven’t seen me in person. hehehehe. Don’t judge by the look of photo, hehehehe!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Wah!!! So nice, going to Bali. Friends? Girlfriend kah? Wink! Wink! LOL!!! πŸ˜€ Ok, I’ll wait till I get to see you in person…but if compared to me, sure you will look very slim lah! Muahahahaha!!!!!!

      1. Actually going with his coursemates, boy and girl friends. Hahaha!!!…of course don’t compare with me but with someone bigger than your size, then you will feel you are slim too.

        Hmmmm…so nice. Yalor…if I stand with papakucing aka superweightkoalabear, I will also look slim. Muahahahahaha!!!!!

  4. Arthur, like Irene said, this is real torture esp when it is only 8.05am now.. *got to cabut!* the dessert is making me droooooooooooooooool!

    Hungry? LOL!!! Ah…I see you’ve a sweet tooth… πŸ˜‰

  5. nice mille crepe!! in fact that piece of cake outshines the other dishes, haha..

    Oh? You’ve a sweet tooth too? Not really so in my case thought I don’t mind nice desserts once in a while.

    1. i not only have sweet tooth, i have sweet TEETH!! hahaha~~

      …and sweet face…and sweet smile…and sweet everything? LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  6. i also like the grills too, all meat for the carnivorous me, hahahaha!! but really not fancy that sizzling noodles, in fact i don’t like sizzling noodles at all.. i hate the way the noodles all soaked up in that starchy gravy..

    Well, I’m definitely a meat person…and not many places around here where one can get pork – most will tell you “serve no pork” as they would like to cater to those who do not eat the meat as well. I don’t mind noodles…or rice. More filling if the portion of the food served is not that substantial.

  7. The Mille Crepe looks well-assembled and delicious! Haven’t had it for a very long time…

    Yes, it is very nice…and very neat too – unlike those that I’ve seen in some blogs, the ones in KL or Malacca – quite messy, I thought and more expensive.

  8. Arthur,You are always a good tour guide esp for food hunting….

    The food all look delicious.

    Have you been to this place? You should drop by sometime. Very nice, comfortable environment, free parking…and many things for you to choose to eat…

  9. Well… you’re a bit far away for me to visit. πŸ˜‰

    The next spot on our list is Ireland. It will be my daughter’s first time out of the country, and she’s looking forward to the trip. We’ll be visiting next year.

    I’m still fascinated by the cake, you’ve featured one similar a few times, and one day I’ll have to attempt to make one for myself. My father likes pork the way I make it… the last time my mother was away visiting my brother and his family, I made the pork with a honey ginger sauce. I trimmed the fat, and added fresh vegetables and a side dish of fried rice… he and my daughter gobbled it up. πŸ˜‰

    Ahhh!!! Ireland! They say it’s a lovely place – everyone’s so nice and friendly. I wanted to go when I was in the UK for a few months in the mid-90’s but winter was drawing near and the weather wasn’t exactly kind so I had to shelf my plans. 😦 Hmmm…ginger and honey sauce – sounds like what they use for the seasoning. I think it tasted something like that, very very nice. I’m sure I would gobble up all of yours too. LOL!!! πŸ˜‰

  10. Since I’m a chocolate lover, I would love to try the chocolate mille crepe. Looks like it has rich chocolate layerings. BTW..sizzling braised chicken noodles for RM10.80, wouldn’t it be a lil expensive for Sibu?

    This is a cafe/restaurant – nice and comfortable, air-conditioned…like dining in a hotel restaurant and eating at a road side stall – cannot make a general comparison like that. Plus there’s a lot of chicken and an egg as well and it is served on a sizzling plate. I think at a coffee shop, sizzling noodles would cost at least RM5-6 and they may not be nice, the ingredients – maybe just a few bits of pork and sliced Chinese cabbage only plus egg gravy. Of course, we have the purchasing power – it is up to us to choose what we want. Some may prefer to go to places cheaper, pay less and settle for a lot less.

    Well, if you love chocolate, you will probably love the crepe…a lot! πŸ˜‰

  11. Oh ya…that bowl of red rice wine mee suah looks good. I’ve just cooked one for dinner…day before yesterday (using the wine brought from Sarawak). =)

    Yes, our Foochow red wine’s the best – great in soups, excellent for cooking meat. I love it…a lot! The mee sua here is good – my daughter does not usually eat a lot but she finished that big bowl all by herself. I guess that speaks volumes.

  12. I love mille crepe.. usually I will go for vanilla flavour. The chocolate one here looks good.

    The vanilla one here is good too but because it has a milder, softer taste…it should not be taken alongside this double chocolate one. The strong overpowering chocolate taste will drown it out and make it seem bland. If you must have both, it would be good to take the vanilla one first and enjoy that before going on to the chocolate one.

  13. i had that roast pork spare ribs a few weeks ago. it was nice. hopefully will go there again soon. wanna join STP? cheers!

    Oh? You belanja? Anytime!!! But not so soon… So much meat in that one plate, better kurang a bit for the next few days. Hehehehehe!!!!!

  14. Mmm….now kepunan Mi suah…but like the one at the 1 sen shop la

    Many places here with nice mee sua actually…not like kampua. Kampua, you have very good, good…ok…and horrible. Foochow chicken soup mee sua not hard to cook – as long as you have good red wine, pass liao!

    1. yea yea..Kathy, now i have to agree 1 sen got a lot nice food. Their pek ting yuk not bad too!! AH!! This weekend i must cook pek ting yuk.

      LOL!!! You brought duck home from Sibu, right? I only like pek ting eyok with duck, not chicken.

  15. the mille crepe looks delicious but the mee shua looks oily, all the fats floating over the soup >_<

    Not really oily… That’s the thing when cooking chicken soup – the fat from the skin will all come out when simmering for a long time to get the flavour out. My missus will remove all the fat and the skin…and in the end, not so not-oily also. Actually I love the skin…. Slurpssss!!!!

  16. Roast pork spare ribs! That loooks evil! hard to find that these days in kuching, esp a portion of that size.

    Yes, it was huge! My pork ration for the whole week… Hehehehehehe!!! πŸ˜‰

  17. Mille Crepe, belum pernah cuba. I must order…what’s the name of this restaurant?

    Noodle House…in Sibu, i.e. There!!! You can click the link on the phrase “where I went for lunch” to an earlier blogpost…

  18. Ah, i love that sizzling roast pork spare ribs with honey , looks good! New thing in the menu? How come i never see it or the staff recommend it to me? Hmmmm……

    I think they already have it when you came to Sibu – they have the photo on the table but it’s not on the menu yet – like the double choc mille crepe. There’s another one with creamy sauce – maybe I will try that one next time, cheaper a bit. Does not look so nice in the photo though…

  19. Wahhh….drooling over the spare ribs…PORK one!! I love. How come you didnt recommend us ehh

    New! That time you came, not available yet… So, wanna come to Sibu again? Hehehehehe!!!! πŸ˜‰

  20. You can’t have barbecue without fresh corn on the cob. The pieces here look big and juicy.

    No? The two huge chunks of meat were a killer. Could hardly eat anything more once I was through… πŸ˜‰

  21. I wonder where to find pork ribs with honey here! It’s my weakness with honey roasted stuffs!

    Not easy to find anywhere here – not even simple pork chops. This is the first…and the one and only! 😦

  22. Hi….aiyah…. drop in wrong timing when I’m so hungry and my break is at 1pm. 😦
    Everything look sooooo…. good especially the mille crepe. Time to go kitchen play masak masak with flour make my mille crepe, maybe before end of the month. Now on ice cream mode. Stay tuned, coming soon.

    Have a nice day.

    Good luck!!! Bet you can whip it up, your own version of it, no sweat at all… πŸ˜‰

  23. that looks like a good bowl of meesua. i would opt for meesua over other noodles if i see it being an option…but some places disappoint coz they can be a tad salty.

    I only had it once in KL, RM12 a bowl…and never again! I did not even finish all of it. The ones here are a whole lot nicer…

  24. I have made my own crepe cake once and I nailed the taste but not the look. Once I nailed the look too, I will “tayang” in my blog and share the recipe.

    I think must be very delicate, lemah lembut to make it nice and neat… Don’t ask me…mine will be disastrous, I know.
