Extra extra…

My missus and I drop by here quite often…

STC Sibu

– and in case anyone does not know where exactly it is, it is right across the road from Sacred Heart School along Jalan Oya.

Over the years, there were a number of people running their coffee shops at this particular spot but none of them lasted very long. This one, however, has been around for a long time now and is enjoying bustling business every day. It opens a bit later than the rest though – around 8.00 a.m. or a bit after that and it opens till around 6.00 p.m. However, if luck is not on your side, the thing you want may be sold out and you will have to choose something else.

That was exactly what happened to us that day. We wanted the Sarawak laksa but it was sold out so my missus opted for their kampua noodles (RM2.50) while I asked for this kampua noodles special with fried chicken (RM4.50)…

I also ordered a bowl of pian sip, dry (RM2.50) to share…

STC piansip added

…and that was our lunch for the day, around RM12-13.00 for two, inclusive of drinks.

I would not say that what they serve is the best in town but everything is usually very good…and for one thing, I find it very convenient as I can bring friends here and order a whole lot of stuff for them to enjoy instead of going to a place just to eat one thing and having to move Β to another to eat some other thing especially when there is a group of them and not everyone will want to eat the same thing.

They have an outlet at Medan Mall too, a smaller one but there, you get to sit in air-conditioned comfort while enjoying more of less the same items on the menu…but I find that the service there is not as good as this one…or maybe, I’m more used to the people here.

So, anybody coming to Sibu soon? Come, let’s drop by here, shall we?

  1. I wont be heading there soon but I ll keep this under my list of places to eat when I’m in Sibu! πŸ˜‰

    what is the difference between Kampua and Pian Sip? both the noodles look quite alike except for the dumplings.. πŸ™‚

    No worries! Let me know when you’re coming and I’ll take you around and this will definitely be one of the stops in the itinerary. Both photos show the same plate of kampua noodles – the noodles are called kampua while pian sip are the dumplings that I ordered and placed a few by the side of the plate in the other photograph.

  2. KAMPUA AGAIN, AND AGAIN!!! you have nothing more to blog about already?? mind block aren’t you?? hahahaha~~ πŸ˜€

    Hey! Wasn’t it you who gave me the name KAMPUA MAN? No worries, come back tomorrow and that will be the first thing you will see AGAIN…but be consoled that you will not see it again for the rest of the week and even right into the following one… πŸ˜‰

  3. The kampua here is actually pretty good and their chendol is not too bad either. I’ll be dropping by again soon so let’s plan on going there.

    Ya…the kampua is ok and I feel their pian sip is among the best around. Come back in a few days’ time and you will see my post on their coconut chendol. My friend from Ipoh/Kl loved it very much – not to be missed!

  4. Been wanting to eat kampua for a few months! Which is weird cause I’m actually not a big fan of kampua. Haihh

    Oh? You’re having cravings? Hehehehehe!!!! Must be you’ve been dropping by my blog too much – conditioning… Not long now – you’ll be home for the holidays soon. πŸ˜‰

  5. I remember Sibu Thomson Corner! The best place to eat kampua in Sibu. Yums.

    Come back tomorrow and you will see the one that I like best in town but some may not agree – they think it’s a cross between Sibu kampua and Kuching kolo mee…and they will name a few other places where one can get the best authentic version of the kampua noodles…and Thomson Corner is not one of them. I do think it is good though – a lot better than many other places, I would say.

  6. The noodles look very delicious! I would eat that with lots of pickled green chillies πŸ™‚ Feeling even more hungry after coming here. Should have waited after lunch πŸ™‚

    Pickled green chilies, not usually available here…but in Kuching, yes. Hehehehehe!!!! Look on the bright side – at least, it helps whet your appetite… LOL!!!

  7. NIce pixz of the kampua and great prices. Not fair like that, the rich like you getting so much richer to be able to spend so much lesser than poor old Bananaz where we have to pay double the price here.

    RM4.50, not exactly cheap leh… Hehehehehehe!!!! πŸ˜‰

  8. Day2 tried your eggxecellent method both the yolk pecah maybe timing too short. Mango not around to enjoy them as 7 early 8 early she has gone for her Peace Poster Charity project with Lions. Normally wallop one egg per day since have to wait till she comes home with my late lunch better have double egg today.

    Wahhhhh!!!! Your Mango so high class, involved in high class community service club. Hmmm…hope she gets it just right for you. Btw, how’s your eye? They say cannot cook for a long time leh? The heat is bad… Next time, Mango not around, kwai-kwai just eat biscuits or something lah…

  9. The kampua noodles looks good. Am in drooling mode now. BTW, is pian sip and “kiaw” the same? Maybe more or less from the same family.

    The same, I would think…and both not the same as wantan dumplings, though similar.

  10. thats seems delicious wish they have branches here too

    Can always hop over – use Air Asia, everyone can fly…Clarks to KL to Sibu… Wait for the free seats promotions and book.

  11. Looks yummy and quite cheap also!
    Ok, if I happen to go there, I will tell you and bring me there. Haha πŸ˜€

    Sure, sure…no problem at all! πŸ™‚

  12. I’ll visit Sibu if there is a running event there. Got or not? Will be visiting KK next year for Borneo Int Marathon. πŸ˜‰

    I think they do…just that I am never bothered to keep track. Will let you know once I hear of any.

  13. That place was our first stop kan?..but we didn’t order the kampua as we ordered the Sarawak laksa and something else.I love Sarawak laksa and I’m not a laksa lover.

    Yup, we had the pian sip and you liked it! I think you had the kompia here too…

  14. Now I know where to go to get kampua and everything else if on a very tight time schedule when visitng Sibu. In the past always a problem to find good kampua in the afternoon since most stalls are already closed. Good that they operate till 6pm

    Provided it is not sold out – business is so good that at times, you may not be able to get what you want. Try Soon Hock in the Delta Mall area, or shops in Rejang Park – many of the kampua stalls stay open in the afternoon.

  15. Haha for some reason kampua noodles have a very “healthy” feel to it… but it uses pork lard oil, right?

    The best ones do, not the halal ones…and of course, they are not so fragrant and nice. I did ask at a stall near my house and the lady said that they would mix these days – lard is too expensive to use on its own when you’re selling for RM2.50 a plate. Well, the celebrated Penang char kway teow makes use of instant melted lard and served with the crusts and all so wouldn’t that be worse?

  16. with fried chicken? not bad wor..creative at the idea of making more money πŸ™‚

    They have other combinations as well. Always good to have something different for a change.

  17. heheh, the sight of that delicious mix of noodles and meat almost makes me wanna check out airasia’s website to see how much a return flight to sibu might cost. great first photo of the kampua noodles, btw … on my laptop screen, it looks real enough for me to reach out and touch the strands! πŸ˜€

    Come on over. Most welcome… You can have this and more, lots lots more! Just let me know when you are coming. Try MAS too – you can get pretty good fares as well…as long as it is not peak (school) holiday season. Air Asia has pretty good promos sometimes – watch out for their Fly-Days, every Friday and must book from 11.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.

  18. Thomson corner is opposite Sacred Heart School? Oh..i tot it is near one of the church before going to Lanang …hmmm…ok..i got all my direction wrong now. Next round go back must try the kampua here and also the cendol in coconut!

    The one near the church closed down long long ago…. Even when I was still teaching, they were already across the road from Sacred Heart School. Just so-so then.,..but now getting better and better – lots of nice things to eat.

  19. hahaha makan there twice . Not bad la the food there. One of the ABC very nice

    Yup…the food is good and they have a lot to choose from and parking is a breeze. Otherwise, for the best in town, you will have to go here and there to eat…one thing at a time.
