Chasing the sun…

Nope, we did not have to chase anybody or anything – this coffee shop…

Sunny 1

…has been there all this time and the stall…

Sunny 2

…is obviously enjoying brisk business as I notice that there is always a lot of people eating there.

We’ve been there a few times before and I’ve blogged about it here and also here. Melissa likes eating at this shop because when you order the special, they will give you five prawn fritters like this plate of mee jawa special (RM4.50), for instance…

…and she enjoys those fritters a lot. The biasa (ordinary) is RM3.50 so that means that an additional RM1.00 will get you the extras and it works out to only 20 sen each. Gee!!! I think that is very cheap, don’t you?

I decided to try the mee goreng (fried noodles) special…

…and it also came with those prawn fritters and it certainly looked good. Seeing that, Melissa had a change of heart and wanted the fried noodles instead of the mee jawa…so I ended up eating that instead. It was fine by me, really…as I do like their mee jawa – I tried their mee Hongkong once but it did not tickle my fancy ย even though I do know of people who keep going back there for that. Well, as I always say, to each his own and what I like, others may not and vice versa.

Whatever it is, we will definitely go back there again sometime, considering that what they serve here is on the whole, pretty good…and if anyone is interested in giving it a try, it is in Sungai Antu, opposite the Sibu RTM station, directly behind where Courts Mammoth formerly was and facing the old site of the Sibu trans-Sarawak bus terminal which has since moved as well to its present location.

  1. itu brucelee style ada ka? hahaha… the mee goreng looks good… esp at 1am now…

    Hey! They have kampua too…and I liked it very much – despite it being the halal version. Most at the other Malay shops fail big time.

  2. They certainly are very generous with their prawn fritters! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The mee jawa with prawn fritters *sounds* good but your order of fried noodles with prawn fritters *looks* good.

    We can drop by here one morning…when you’ve recovered from your cough. No fried stuff for you in the meantime. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Hmmm.. Maybe I should visit Sibu one day to try out all the street food that you recommend…

    Most welcome. Our door is always open to anyone who cares to drop by – can put up at my place, save money on hotel…to spend on food, glorious food! LOL!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. The food looks plentiful, but I really like the look of those colourful serving dishes – so happy.

    Eeeeee…they’re a bit too gaudy for my liking. I have a soft spot for blue and white crockery.

  5. I haven’t had Mee Jawa for a long, long time. It is interesting that they give prawn fritters with the noodles and I agree that it is very cheap.

    If not for the prawn fritters, I don’t think my daughter would be that keen on going there – she likes them a lot!

  6. Agree what you mention, what u like, i might not like, what i like, might not be what u like…

    Always the case. One man’s meat may be another man’s poison. That’s why I say something is my favourite but I would not say it’s the best in town – others will beg to differ.

  7. I will also pick your daughter’s choice.. the 2nd choice.. hahaha.. I don’t know how to enjoy the mee jawa till today.. I think men are less picky when it comes to food, right? Same with my sons… when I dont like that certain item served, they dont mind exchanging with me .. hahaha..

    Mee Jawa is nice – the sweet potato plus spices added gravy. Must eat quickly though…or the noodles will get soggy. Our yellow noodles here not like the ones over at your side. Must not overcook, must not soak in gravy too long…will go all soft, not so nice but healthier, none of the chemicals to keep them firm.

  8. The Mee Jawa definitely looks special with those prawn fritters and for a ringgit more…mmmm not bad. I am sure Melissa is enjoying herself with a papa like you to pamper her ๐Ÿ™‚ This is the best bonding time…feasting together ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, still waiting for her posting…and she’s enjoying every minute of it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. ooo, the mee jawa looks very similar to how i remember it back in malacca. though back in the day, i think it was about RM2 per plate, heh ๐Ÿ˜€

    Over your side, maybe it is called mee bandung…but the gravy is darker, I think – more like our mee rebus.

    1. No, Arthur. Mee Jawa is mee Jawa and mee Bandung is mee Bandung. The kuah is slighty different. Mee Jawa is extremely popular in Muar and some say that the dish actually originates from there. Personally I like mee Jawa more than mee Bandung and mee rebus.

      No leh. Mee Bandong is from Muar: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mee_Bandung_Muar
      Mee Jawa, I hear, has sweet potato used in the making of the gravy and hence, the red colour. Dunno its place of origin. Mee rebus, the gravy has a darker colour – used to have that in Singapore in 1973 (that time, jakun – never heard of the rest), also dunno the origin.

  10. interesting to see the chinese name and the english name of the shop not matching.. the chinese says “delicious” but the english says “sunny”, is it the name of the boss or it refers to the weather?? ๐Ÿ™‚

    No idea. Maybe “Delicious” was already taken so they had to think of another name quickly at the registrar of companies?

  11. The mee jawa and mee goreng look super good. Should drop by there one day.

    It is nice…and the one two doors away has nasi kerabu on Saturdays. Oooo….heavenly!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. OOhh I think I’ll like that place too! I also love prawn fritters a lot! Grandma never fails to make them for me whenever I’m back home ๐Ÿ™‚ And RM1 extra for 5 pieces is pretty darn cheap!

    It certainly is cheap. Not even 10 cents, AUD… I love them fried whole coated with batter like this – very nice.

  13. Hardly see any mee goreng comes with prawn fritters, quite big somemore, guess it’s worth the price!

    Not here either…only at thie one and looks like it’s a crowd-puller! Very popular!

  14. I love the prawn fritters too, and it is at 20 cents each. That is very cheap!
    It’s very heartwarming to see your sweet action to offer your plate to Melissa. A love from a father to his daughter is painted out at that sentence. I saw your post in facebook this morning. Indeed this is a sacrifice we parents have to go through, but the pay back is love and joy. Cheers!

    That’s all the children need – lots of love and affection and they will never go wrong…but be careful not to spoil though. That is a totally different story.

  15. If I were Melissa, I would eat half mee jawa and half fried mee. I used to do that, especially when I eat out with my husband. I love tasting everything like having buffet.

    I think she’s just ok with mee jawa, she prefers fried stuff and did not know that the mee goreng comes with the five prawn fritters as well.

  16. Both look yummy! True that 20sen for each prawn fritter is a good price.

    Precisely! And it’s prawn…not batter. Once Chinese shop/restaurant here, 50 sen one prawn fritter, big…but only the tail is prawn. Tsk! Tsk!

  17. Never come across mee jawa & mee goreng with prawn fritters. They do look special. As a noodle person, I am fine with both.

    Only at this shop here – maybe that is the main attraction, business always so good.

  18. Lup the mee jawa and the fried prawn fritters ooh ho liao. There is one hawker stall in Anson Road, Penang selling fried jawa mee and the produce is sort of same like mee goreng. Quite like it but sorry can’t find the stall now have shifted ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I had fried noodles at an Indian stall in Penang once, dunno if there is a special name for it – very nice.

  19. Yes, both are nice. The nasi lemak at the 2nd stall is what we usually go for.
    Have you tried the Mee Jawa in Lok Min Yuen? I think the gravy is nicer.

    Oh? Would love to try that…but I guess they do not give those coveted prawn fritters there. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ The nasi lemak’s good eh? Hmmm…would give a try one of these days.

  20. wow…the Mee Jawa looks nice. I would go for ‘special’ oso ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It is nice…and we always order the special when dropping by here – for the nice fritters.

  21. That looks so yummy! What a good deal! ๐Ÿ™‚ It really make more sense to go with the special.

    Yup, just a ringgit more… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for dropping by & commenting.

  22. I want! I want! I would order both since I can’t decide which I like more.. hehehe.

    You want the mee Bandong too? And the kampua? LOL!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  23. is cheap to get 5 prawn fritters for just an extra RM1!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ feeling hungry in office when i scrolling down the mee goreng photo you posted here…. *drooling* Happy WeekenD STP

    Very cheap indeed. Hey, another one – long time no see. Hope you’re doing fine! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  24. LOve the mee goreng here. Makes me feel like driving to the mamak store to tapao. Hmmm…prawn fritters, have to give it a pass even though i love it.**high cholesterol** hehhehehehe

    Wah!!! You pencil thin, where got such problem one? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  25. from the finest to the simplest resto huh
    well you could do a book out of this food trips youve been

    No need to book. Anyone can just let me know he/she is coming to town and I will make sure it will be a trip to remember – foodwise especially…like this guy who told me he was coming – I did not know him at first but it did not matter – met as strangers but parted as friends…and he and his missus will be coming again this May – loved it so much here!

  26. What Melissa wants Melissa gets. ๐Ÿ˜‰ So the daddy had to wait for the choice of his daughter before eating.

    Parental love. That’s the way it goes all the time – kids come first.
