Ginger…

Well, halia in Malay means “ginger” and this cafe was located some place else before but it has shifted here for quite sometime now…

HC

– two doors away from the cake shop that I blogged about recently.

We stopped by here for lunch that day on our way home from Selangau and I had the nasi campur (mixed rice)…

HC - NC1

…with a bit of daging masak hitam and brinjal fried with sambal…and I also had the paku (wild fern) and a bit of the cincaluk (fermented shrimps) dip…

HC - NC2

It did not come cheap though – all that came up to RM4.90 but the consoling part was that everything tasted great except the cincaluk. I found out later that they used the bottled ones from Malacca…

Malacca cincaluk

…which was extremely salty and not fragrant unlike our local ones especially those from Bintulu.

My missus had the mee sup (RM3.50)…

HC - MS

…which was all right, nothing to shout about but I must say that the fried mihun (RM3.50) that my daughter had…

HC - MG

…was really very nice. For once, I can say that the mihun fried and sold outside is as nice as mine or perhaps even nicer.

On the whole, I would think this would be a nice place to stop by for a bite and the crowd there certainly seemed to think likewise.
