I don’t wanna fight no more…

I can’t remember whether they did say it was very nice but I am pretty sure that I heard their business was so good that in the face of the stiff competition, some of the kampua noodle stalls in the vicinity had given up without a fight or so to speak – in other words, they just closed down their stalls.

Well, I was in the neighbourhood the other day so I just had to stop by…

EC

…to give it a try and if anyone is wondering, it is located to the left of the Dewan Suarah (Civic Centre), facing Tung Hua Secondary School (You can catch a glimpse of the “new” school block in two of the photographs below), right next to this shop…

Next door

…with a name that I kind of like.

I must say that I appreciate the lady’s effort in putting on a mask while making the noodles…

KS 1

…and for one thing, their kampua noodles, at RM2.20 only a plate…

KS 2

…are very much cheaper than most, if not all, of the other places in town where they are priced at RM2.50…or more, at some places, I hear. Say, if you have a family of three children, you would have saved RM1.50, enough for a glass of kopi-o peng (iced black coffee).

Of course, what is more important is the taste and not how cheap the noodles are…

KPN 1

…and at best, I thought they were pretty all right – more or less like most other places in town and perhaps better than some of them even…

KPN 2

…but my favourites are still here…or here.

All in all, I would just say that if I were around that part of town, I wouldn’t mind stopping by for a plate of that instead of going through the trouble of having to drive somewhere else to have something of the same.

  1. More kampua noodles! I better check out the Cheras outlet that you shared on FB!

    Yes, yes! The guy’s from Sibu…so it should be authentic enough compared to a lot of places that claim to sell “Sarawak dry noodles”, cooked by some Bangla or Myanmarese. Some are tasty, I would admit this much but they’re so very different, nothing like the real thing.

  2. Hardly get any food for RM2.50 a plate of noodles with “char siew” nowadays… normally my breakfast averagely will come to around RM5 plus drinks, sometimes more… less if I take indian capati or tosai… πŸ™‚

    Thankfully, things are still quite affordable here…

  3. yeah, taste comes first before the price.. i don’t mind paying more if the food is delicious, but on the other hand, i still feel unhappy for lousy food even at cheaper price.. πŸ™‚

    Yup! No point going for something cheap if one does not really enjoy it…

  4. I went to Cafe RTM last week and tasted their kampua and it was delicous. I was surprised to see that she cooked, prepared drinks and served too. I really appreciate her “one woman show”. There is another coffee shop at the corner and i wonder how the taste of their mee?

    Yes, I quite pity her really for at times, she does look a bit tired and kind of sad – unlike when she was waiting at tables at the other place – she was always very cheerful and friendly then. I’m glad you share the same sentiments and think that hers is good – hopefully, her business will pick up and things get better for her – it is kind of hard when you’re located in the middle of nowhere like that.

    As for the “bistro”, I did not go to try but the first time I was there, I saw quite a number of people eating at that coffee shop.

  5. Still kampua post??? Still not end yet? Still hunting for more? Tsk tsk tsk.

    Next time try the one at the market, opposite Tung Hua School, the upstairs food court, I like that kampua, taste good. Aiyo, I still not had my breakfast while typing this, I am very hungry!

    Hehehehehe!!!! I have heard of that one too – two stalls there, it seems and the laksa is good and also the chao chai hung ngang. Yet to drop by the place.

  6. Is there any Kampua stall that you have not visited in Sibu? The price of Kampua noodles from this stall is so cheap and we cannot get any food for this price in KL. What an inflation over here!

    LOTS!!! Imagine – every block of shophouses here, there would be a coffee shop or two or more…and each one would have a kampua stall and many are always packed all morning. When I first went to Sg Petani, I walked and walked and walked…and could not find a place to eat…and eventually, I found a nasi kandar shop (papadum sealed in plastic sold at RM1 each), and it was either that or those expensive cafes and restaurants in the shopping mall beside this shop. They said there would be cheap hawker stalls in the housing areas but I had no way of knowing where they were and how I could get there. 😦

  7. I can order two plates of kampua noodles with that price! Cheap2… i thought u gonna fight with someone. Asian rocky? hahaha

    Not me, those kampua sellers – fighting tooth and claw to compete with one another. πŸ˜‰ Nahhh!!!! I don’t think so – the portions are usually really huge – it would be a wonder if you can finish one. Hehehehehehe!!!!

  8. Kampua fever is back again, huhuhu!!!!. Still can get RM2.20 a plate. Not bad but still yesterday one looks much better.

    You will be surprised that there will be many who would prefer this type – more original, authentic like the kampua they grew up eating. The ones that I like – they will not like. They think it is more like kolo mee…or a cross between the two. I always prefer kolo mee, anyway.

  9. Rm 2.20 is darn cheap! But not mountain-portion eh LOL! *wink*

    You will have to go with me when you want to go and eat the mountain – I will have half of yours and a whole mountain of my own. Muahahahahaha!!!!!

  10. RM2.20 for that plate of kampua with pieces of meat summore.
    Seremban also can’t get that price already 😦

    East, west…Sibu is best…and Sarikei too! Hehehehehe!!!!

  11. Found new place to makan? At least not disappointed with the food la. Some expensive and not nice at all

    Not bad, as good as some other places…and cheaper but not my favourite in town.

  12. and I thought I was damn smart in finding some RM 4 breakfasts..

    Not bad, not bad at all…by KL standard! Very cheap! LOL!!! πŸ˜‰

  13. RM2.20 per plate? That is cheap. We been to few places for kampua but my kids still like the one in Rejang Park. They can have it (RM2.50) everyday.

    Beside the post office? Tried the one at My Home? I like that one best in that area. Tried Rasa Sayang & RTM Cafe yet?

  14. ypu’ve never run out of new resto to go to huh
    anyway compared to other noodles this seems better i think.

    Not really. I prefer a few other places around here… Lots more that I have not tried, believe me! πŸ˜‰

  15. Wah, so cheap and big serving too. Look delicious. πŸ™‚
    Have a nice week ahead.

    Cheap, yes. Big, so-so…and delicious, ok lah. Better ones elsewhere. You too!

  16. the prices at demak laut for a plate of kampua increased from RM2.70 to RM3.30.. and the one at pending increased from RM3.00 to RM3.30 !! did flour increase again recently? 😦

    Good grief! All I know is the price of pork here went up so some places increased their prices to RM2.70 but most have stayed put at RM2.50, thank goodness for that.
