Going back…

The last time we dropped by here, we thought it was getting a bit way too pricey and that was why we had not been here for a while even though Melissa did suggest going once or twice but somehow, we never did.

Well, we decided to stop by there for lunch last Sunday after the service at the cathedral and Melissa ordered these cereal prawns…


…which were very nice…


…and also her favourite, their onion chicken…


…and needless to say, she enjoyed that very much…


We also had their claypot tofu


…which turned out to be very good indeed.

Other than that, we had the fried cangkuk manis with egg…

CM with egg

…and the total for the food alone came up to RM48.00. I would say that it was not all that cheap considering that we ordered for two persons only but of course, the servings were really huge and there would be enough for four at least!

Ah well! Since we do enjoy the food there, we would be dropping by again time and again, no doubt about that – just not too frequently, I guess…

  1. The cereal prawns looks a bit different from here, but can tell it’s yummy!

    May vary from shop to shop – used to eat this at another place, very nice here too.

  2. The cereal prawns look crispy. I would have enjoyed all the above dishes!

    All very good… Just that anything around and over 50 for 3 persons, I would say, it’s expensive. Used to be around 30 plus to 45…

  3. That’s really cheap compared to KL. The portions like you said were generous.

    I wonder why KL does not serve put stir fry of the sayur manis which is similar to cangkuk manis. Sigh…can only eat it if we cook it ourselves.

    Yes, enough for 4 at least even though we requested for servings for 2 for the 3 of us. I wouldn’t mind smaller portions and paying less…but of course, it is still cheap compared to most places in KL.

    Ya, I do wonder why it is not popular over there – here, it is called “mani cai” in Chinese and perhaps, the name sounds like money – so everybody wants to eat it in the hope of getting rich – same thing with midin. The Chinese name sounds like “million” (mee lian) and everybody wants to be a millionaire! LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  4. Indeed a nice lunch. RM48.00 for all those dishes are not cheap kah?….but I think it is cheap. Huge portion lagi tu. Have a nice weekend and more food marathon ya.

    In the past, we could get a very nice lunch for around RM35-45, all in…but I guess the servings were not as big. With rice and drinks, the bill that day came up to RM57.00 altogether. Ouch!!!

  5. oh, the cereal prawns and onion chicken looked very very delicious.. guess the gravy from the chicken dish would be so good to go with the rice!!

    Yes, my daughter loves that a lot…and the fried onions too.

  6. Cereal prawns… i used to like this dish a lot until i discovered that they will add tonnes of butter into the dish!!!!

    Butter? At the prices these days? Dream on…

  7. yums, the prawns look big and bouncy. it’s been agesssss since i’ve had cereal prawns though. now i want some. i like the textural crunch we get from biting into the oats stuff first, then the juice of prawns πŸ˜€

    The food here is consistently good. I love their creamy butter prawns too, very nice.

  8. Yum yum. Would love to try its onion chicken. Still cheap judging from the portion. Haha. Everything is BIG portion in Sibu. Lol.

    Foochow servings… πŸ˜€

  9. Ming Mei Shi, you still their regular customer. πŸ™‚

    RM48 for the above? It is cheap!! Consider got air cond.and big portion of food and food taste good too, worth the money.

    Ok, will drop by once in a while. Yup, I do think it’s worth coming here and paying for good food…compared to other places that may be a bit cheaper but the food is not that nice.

  10. Your photography skills is good and that made the cereal prawns so yummy in everyone’s eyes!
    The price is reasonable since it tasted good.

    …and the serving’s huge too.

  11. Is that Ruby?
    Let’s go makan again next time I’m in Sibu. I’m riding to Sibu this Saturday. You wanna ride?

    Anytime – move over, I’m getting on! πŸ˜‰ No, this is Ming Mei Shi, not Ruby.

  12. RM48 is quite okay I would say. But I guess you could have dished those all up yourself right Arthur at a much cheaper rate? But ada udang wor… udang are expensive over here.

    Nope. I can only do my simple dishes, not these. Ya…usually with prawns, it would be more expensive. Tiger prawns big ones RM35 a kg here…and freshwater prawns, I saw at the market the other day – RM55!!! *faints*

  13. The dishes here look decent but I still prefer the Kampua noodle that you had just posted! πŸ˜€

    Yup, you can get these dishes anywhere, give or take a little – there are good and better ones elsewhere as well…but not our kampua noodles., just some pale imitations all over, even in Singapore…Australia, I hear.

  14. cangkuk manis with egg? I always eat only cangkuk manis, first time see with egg!!! =]

    That’s the most common way of cooking and eating it here – Foochow style, I guess…

  15. That last photo made me think of how much I want Spinach right now πŸ™‚

    Hah!!! My daughter wanted to look for some at our local supermarket to make quiche or whatever – couldn’t find any. Not too sure whether it will be the same with our tropical ones…
