The last one…

I have tried everything that they have to offer at this stall – their Penang prawn noodles, their pan mien or handmade noodles and their curry mee except this one, their tom yam noodles…

…and that was why when I took my friend, Philip, who is currently back in Sibu from the US, out for breakfast the other morning, I ordered that for myself while I insisted that he had their Penang prawn noodles, my favourite so far.

It cost RM6.00 a bowl, the same as the prawn noodles…

…but I noticed that it had fewer ingredients – for instance, there weren’t any deep fried wantons or pian sipΒ and there wasn’t any hard boiled egg either.

It tasted great, I would not deny that…

– the soup was good, sour plus a little spicy, but considering that there wasn’t much in it, I would expect it to cost a little less.

Based on taste alone, my personal favourite would still be their Penang prawn noodles, no doubt about that!

  1. I just love Tom yam. Had been having Tom yam Gung in Thailand 2 days in a row. hehe

    You do? I think my fried version was nicer…if I were to compare the two. πŸ˜‰

  2. uhhhh… u r tempting me with the tom yam! πŸ˜€

    I am? I’m not too crazy about tom yam…the soupy and sour version like this, not my favourite but I don’t mind having it once in a while for a change. I guess fat people are not too crazy about sour things… πŸ˜‰

  3. This Tom Yam should be like this , no eggs! Otherwise the taste will be cloudy. I didn’t see the serai leaves sticking out. The color and big prawns look right.

    I would love half a hardboiled egg with it…or at least lower the price a bit since I was not getting the “extras”. 😦

  4. wow!! and it really looks good, i would have thought that’s prawn noodles if not mentioned it’s tomyum, haha!! makes me salivating now with an empty stomach early in the morning without having breakfast yet~~ πŸ˜€

    Prawn noodles not that colour leh? Looks good kah? Never had tom yam noodles over your side so can’t really compare…

  5. Not crazy over tom yam noodles though. Prefer prawn noodles. For that price I would say it is too x’pensive and with so little ingredients but the prawn looks good. Taugeh so few or maybe buried under the noodles.

    I’m not a fan either, just ok with it. One thing about the prawns here – very fresh, firm and succulent… real good…but only two. 😦

    1. I think it is the 2 prawns that cost a bomb.

      No lah. The Penang prawn noodles also two prawns…plus fried wantons and hardboiled egg, also RM6.00. Maybe the tom yam paste or ingredients used more expensive…

  6. My mouth waters looking at the pictures.It really looks delicious. Too bad I did not get the chance to sample any prawn mee or yang sewaktu dengannya while I was back home recently 😦 Stressing now as I haven’t packed at all for Monday!!

    No worries… When you come to Sibu, you can eat this and more. Start keeping a list from now… Takut tertinggal nanti! πŸ˜‰

  7. I like tom yum very much….but can’t have it on an empty stomach, otherwise it will give me stomach gastric 😦

    LOL!!! No problem for me, steel-lined tummy… πŸ˜‰

  8. Arghhh you are killing me…i want penang prawn noodles……

    Nom…nom…nom!!! Come to Sibu, right below the hotel where you all stayed…the one with no lift. LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  9. The Last One….sound like you won’t go back there again since you had tried all the food offered by the stall.

    The last one on the menu…and I would not go again unless it is to bring somebody to enjoy the Penang prawn noodles. That is my problem – I will have to go elsewhere and try other stuff so I can share with people what’s good and what’s not. Can’t eat the same things again and again.

  10. You are right about the Prawn mee..
    Other than 1 Big and 1 smaller prawn..other basic ingredient like egg and kangkung are unnoticeable.

    That’s their tom yam. Their Penang prawn mee is ok – lots of ingredients and very filling…and also RM6.00.

    1. Isit…opss…so sorry. *mata kabur edi* hahahha

      Seems you’re not the only one – some others also seem to think it’s prawn mee…but I thought prawn mee not so yellow or curry-like? Plain clear soup, a bit reddish at the edges, that’s all…

  11. Tom yam!! Yum yum! Where is this place , my mum told me she likes a place tom yum cannot remember which coffee shop she went.

    And now , on a raining evening , nice to have tom yum soup!

    Bus Terminal Kopitiam…right below Medan Hotel where all the bloggers stayed when they came to Sibu… Must ask your mum to go especially for the Penang prawn noodles – very very nice…and the curry mee is nice too. Tom yam…ok, not my favourite…but don’t bother about the pan mien – if you ask me, I would say that it’s not great, not at all.

  12. noted! i’ll bring my foodie father to try out this place when i’m back in town. πŸ™‚ thanks for the review! i shall crown you…The Sibu Foodie Godfather. You’re just amazing πŸ™‚ Discovering food at the most unexpected places in Sibu.

    Running out of places to go and try. Sibu isn’t that big a place, yunno… LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  13. Oh I miss those Tom Yum kung in Bangkok. Time to go there for a few days holiday.

    Have not been to Thailand for so long… Not really eager to go again. I would love to go to the Philippines again though… πŸ˜‰
