Had to go…

I had to go there again the other day, Wednesday, because they were introducing their new line of mille crepe – their rum and raisin (RM7.80)…

…and I was glad that I did. It was very nice – nicer than their vanilla range because it had a slightly stronger and more fragrant taste and was not as mild/bland and it was not as sweet as their double chocolate. However, for reasons known only to them, this variety will only be available only on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

It was around noon when my missus and I dropped by so we decided to just have our lunch there. She had their sweetly chicken rice (RM7.90)…

…which was in fact, a bowl of chicken stewed in soy sauce and perhaps some five-spice powder served with a plate of rice. It was nice but I would not want to order that as my missus would cook chicken that way ever so often at home that I’ve grown quite tired of it and would rather go for something else that I would not be eating all the time in the house.

I decided to order their nasi lemak special (RM6.90) again…

I was kind of disappointed and felt it was not really that great the first time I had that but this time around, it was much better – the sambal was spicy enough for my liking and they were very generous with the condiments. I did not think the fried chicken was all that great but it was all right. I certainly would not say that it was the best around but it was good and should anyone happen to drop by the place, they certainly can consider ordering this.

Both our orders came with these huge bowls of complimentary soup…

which we thought was really very nice – with bits of tofu, sweet corn and egg garnished with chopped spring onions. It was light, clear soup, not overladen with msg and we enjoyed it a lot, unlike the complimentary soups that we may get elsewhere.

I also ordered these stewed eggs with minced pork (RM4.20)…

just to make sure that we would have enough to eat. I loved this a great deal too…and we went home after the delightful meal, completely satisfied and happy or at least, I was.

  1. oooo… eggs…. too much can get bisul? hahaha… i would definitely can take two portions of that… the eggs, not the bisul… and… yes… kompia perut khinzir…

    Not too many lah…2 only there, 4 halves so 1 for my missus and 1 for me but I had an extra half in my nasi lemak. Hehehehehe!!!! If bisul, eat more eggs…and in the end, will meletup! LOL!!!

  2. Nice! They must have reserved a slice for you, you go there so often! πŸ™‚

    Wednesday and Thursday only? That is…slightly unusual, perhaps they only bake it on certain days? Or it could be a marketing effort – make availability only on certain days to increase mid-week traffic. I don’t know, I’m just speculating at this puzzle. Heh.

    Their stewed eggs looks good! I’ll eat them together with seafood kampua next time. πŸ˜€

    I don’t know why they only have it mid-week but as far as I know that place enjoys the best business on weekdays – lunch hour…so crowded AND noisy – like a coffee shop. I would avoid dropping by around that same time. The eggs were nice (prefer the ones at Chopsticks) but personally, I enjoyed the minced meat very much – really yummy. Not a fan of their seafood kampua, I prefer the beef.

    I did not ask them to reserve this time but I went before lunchtime so no problem. The last time, the double choc…I did but when I went, it was sold out…one of the waiters sold it off not knowing it was reserved…and I had to go back the next day but they gave me a slice on the house. Not this time though… 😦

  3. yeah, rums and raisins sounds interesting, i think it goes well with the mille crepe.. hmmm, but only wednesdays and thursdays?? maybe it’s more work to do, so they put that in weekdays..

    Perhaps… Have to arrange the raisins. LOL!!! At least, this one looks nice and neat. I saw somebody’s post in his blog on one famous place in Penang – the rum and raisin mille crepe after cutting looked all messed up, so terrible! Dunno if the shop people did it or the blogger cut it himself at home…

  4. i like the sweetly chicken, haha, what a name!! i think the mushroom is good, and the gravy sure very nice to go with steam rice.. you got complimentary soup?? maybe you’re a regular and the boss is following your blog~~ :p

    No, no…every customer will get it with whatever main dish he or she orders. Big bowl – shaped like tham phui… LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  5. I like rum and raisin ice cream. I wonder what the same flavour it like in a cake.

    Cake? I’ve tried ice cream – more or less like that kind of flavour…

  6. The sweetly chicken rice looks like the way we cook “too kah”. So nice every dish comes with a bowl of complimentary soup. Love the soup & stewed eggs.

    Yup…something like that. Lor, we call it…

  7. The mille crepe, how many flavors do they have in total?
    That soy sauce chicken dish looks like ‘Ayam Pongteh’ (Nyonya Soy Braised Chicken) =)

    3 now – vanilla, rum & raisin and double chocolate. They had green tea but they’ve discontinued that. Didn’t sell too well, I guess. I did not like that – the green taste… Oh no! Definitely not ayam ponteh – that one has taucheo, serai and what not… (fermented beans)

  8. Wow..what a satisfying meal that was! Soup, main course and a delightful crepe! You know.. now that we reach this age, all we want is to enjoy our meal to our heart’s contentment… right?

    Yes, pamper ourselves while we still can… What for live in this world, scrimp and save every cent and suffer… No meaning like that! Of course, must live within our means and save a bit for a rainy day lah πŸ˜‰

  9. i love mille crepe and always like it plain and the most I’ll go for rum flavoured. I’ve invested in a crepe pan and waiting for one-fine-day to make my own mille crepe cake. πŸ˜€

    LOL!!!! Good luck!!! πŸ˜‰

  10. You are an eggy person, aren’t you πŸ™‚ Ahah! What I call “black eggs” = lor nui (see, I read, learn and remember, 10/10 please). That nasi lemak looks yummy, but the piece of fried chicken wing looks quite hard/dry. Friday, yay πŸ™‚

    The chicken was ok but I think they use the batter that you buy in boxes – the so-called Kentucky fried or whatever. Not nice…or at least, not to the likes of me. Could have just marinated in a bit of soy sauce and sugar/honey and bake or deep fry…good enough.

  11. aikss..cheaper than double chocolate. Only available on certain days….nvm. I will just stick to DC…ahahahha

    I can buy and keep for you…wait till you come, no problem at all. πŸ˜‰

  12. sobs….my area no water today….

    okay…good excuse for me to eat out LOL

    Hmmm come to think of it…still have MIL’s Chicken stew in the freezer…maybe i should just save some money and defrost that

    Ya…I saw on Facebook. If you eat that, how to wash your hands and mouth later…no water? LOL!!!

  13. I would definitely love the eggs.. lagi hitam lagi shiok πŸ™‚ The rest tu not so keen lar but I must say the nasi lemak’s condiment penuh satu pinggan.. Lori ikan bilis and Lori kacang must have terbalik ( accident) in Sibu.. Lol!

    Not the best in town – those eggs…but they were good…and the nasi lemak as well – not the best around but they were really generous with the condiments. All in all, satisfactory… You know what that meant when the teacher wrote it in your report card – not “excellent” or “very good”. LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  14. mille crepe rum & raisin..
    I love that flavour.. so please put in the eating list.. kakaka

    Sure, sure…just hope that they will still have it by the time you finally decide you would want to come… 😦

  15. RM 4.20 for the stewed eggs with minced pork? Basically just 2 eggs. A bit expensive i think.

    This is supposed to be a classier air-conditioned cafe with a much nicer setting. A lot cheaper (and I think theirs are nicer too) at Chopsticks chicken rice: https://suituapui.wordpress.com/2012/06/29/treat-me-good/
    but that’s a coffee shop. Same as eating fish and chips takeaway from a roadside stall and at some fancy restaurant and the latter may not even be nicer – the purchasing power is yours – you have the right of choice. After all, it IS a free country…I think.

  16. Whoa. This looks fabulous.
    I do believe my mouth is watering just by looking at it. (i love the mille crepe)

    You do? Bet you can get good ones where you are – try googling Humble Beginnings. I think in Sarawak, they are only available here – and 3 flavours only. Haven’t heard of any in the cities, Kuching or Miri.

  17. You sure an eggy person, tsk tsk tsk. I love egg, but not hard boil egg, usually i will request to have fried egg on my nasi lemak instead of hard boil egg.

    Hey, my mum had tried the rum and raisin crepe yesterday! hahahah….i think she read in FB, where you tag me the picture. She said it is nice, put it in fridge let it cold then eat, it taste nicer.She said this rum and raisin at least something different from the normal mille crepe.

    Hahahahaha!!! Eat your heart out! You can’t eat it unless you come back to Sibu again soon… Come, come!!! LOL!!! πŸ˜€ I love eggs…in any form. LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  18. Oh the soup looks simple, light, and delicious… perfect for when your not overly hungry. Everything looks great (as usual) especially loving the mushrooms. Occasionally I purchase a mushroom kit, and harvest my own. Much tastier than the mushrooms I can get at the store.

    You grow your own? Gee!!! I’m not too crazy about dried shitakes…and we do not get a lot of fresh ones here – maybe one or two types only. The imported ones are expensive and more often than not, no longer fresh and nice. 😦

  19. I bet your wife is not reading your blog, otherwise you won’t be writing that you’ve grown tired eating that stewed in soy souce chicken. kekeke

    Kept telling her that but she’ll just say that she doesn’t know what to cook… So just eat lah! Just have to be thankful there’s somebody to cook… 😦

  20. The rum and raisin crepe is very nice. My wife and I loves cakes. Hope to bump into something like this in Ipoh soon.

    Ah!!! So you’re from Ipoh eh? Hope to bump into you there sometime… πŸ˜‰

  21. Rum and raisins is known to be good combo so I have no doubt this will taste good. However, I was more attracted to the eggs in black sauce.

    Hah!!!! You gang with Shereen. Eggs with black sauce her weakness…just eat with plain rice, enough already for her. LOL!!! πŸ˜€
