Not the right time…

I went back to this place , the Sri Pelita Cafe at Kampung Datu Road here in Sibu, with my missus as the boss was singing his praises of their “white tom yam” and somebody was telling me that that would be the original tom yam – white. I don’t recall ever having had that before so I wanted to give it a try. Unfortunately, when we got there, I was informed that it was not the right time of the day as the guy making the tom yam would only be around in the afternoon and I would have to drop by at around 3.00 p.m. if I wanted to eat that.

Well, since we were already there, we decided to have something else instead. My missus had the mee goreng (fried noodles), extra spicy…

…and she liked it very much. She said it was not oily as would be the case at many of the Malay food stalls in town and it tasted good too.

I decided to try their murtabak sardine (RM3.50)…

It was served with their fish curry gravy and it seemed that they mixed a bit of their fish curry with the sardine too in the making of the murtabak.

It was good…

…and I wouldn’t mind having that again the next time I drop by the place.

The total, inclusive of two kopi-o-pengs (RM1.40 a glass compared to RM1.50 elsewhere in town) was RM9.30 and the boss just rounded it all up to RM9.00. Gee! Isn’t he nice?

Well, I definitely would go back there again as I have yet to try the “white tom yam” to see whether it is as nice as it is claimed to be.
