She says…

My missus says that she loves the kampua noodles at this shop here in Sibu…

…right across the lane from where the HSBC used to be located a long long time ago along Wong Nai Siong Road opposite the Sibu taxi station. She used to go there to eat but she does not do that anymore as she does not fancy eating in the coffee shop alone so I guess that must have been a long long time ago when she was still single. They lived right by the town and could walk to anywhere they wanted to go so she probably dropped by here to eat on one of her outings with her mum way back then.

I dropped by to give it a try and indeed, the kampua noodles (RM2.50)…

…were very good. I noticed that everyone else was having it kosong (without the meat) but with a bowl of their liver soup. My missus did say that their liver soup was very nice as well but I did not feel like having any that morning.

Instead, I ordered a plate of pian sip, dry (RM2.50)…

…and I liked that too.

All in all, I would say that this is a place worth stopping by for the kampua noodles and whatever else. I saw the lady from the stall at the back serving a plate of mihun that she had fried and it looked pretty good too…but that would have to wait till I go there again the next time – I couldn’t possibly have anything else then.

  1. Very good? It looks absolutely yummy!

    You MUSTN’T miss this place the next time you come home. Anytime better than Liong Yew and a lot of other places. πŸ˜‰

  2. Hmmm looks so good! All your pictures of food always make me drool..

    That’s because the food actually looks good – taken with simple, cheap digicam. I get very suspicious of those taking snaps using those monstrosities – I think even I will look good if they take pictures of me. Hehehehehehe!!!! But on the other hand, I see some using those and their photos all don’t look very nice. πŸ˜›

  3. the kampua is really leaving me drooling here… pity that it’s kinda impossible to get one here.

    Drool…droll… πŸ˜€

  4. OH no…. it is 8.15am now… salivating… drooling… growling… *going off now* …

    Kampua…and kompia…and everything else…are all right here waiting for youuuuuu!!!! πŸ˜‰

  5. Both looks good. Pian sip skin is so transparent till one can see the filings. Best part, taste good & so cheap for those big portion. Yummy!!!…

    Yes, had this in the early morning, no need to eat lunch liao…so full!

  6. Piansip looks so gooood!

    Pretty good, the ones here. Need to know where to go – not all are good. Some, the skin is too thick and some, the meat filling isn’t nice.

  7. Is pian sip actually wantan? They sure look like it – out of the soup. πŸ˜€

    Good morning and happy Oct!

    Same to you. No, it isn’t…or you can say this is the Sibu Foochow version – texture of the skin is different and not so much meat inside…and they serve it dry or soup.

  8. I never tried piansip before… must ask my gf to bring me to try that when we’re in Kuching πŸ™‚

    They call it “kiaw” there and yes, that’s more similar to our Sibu pian sip than wanton.

  9. I notice their char siew looks a bit dark in color here, instead of the pinkish one. What type of chili (sauce?) were given to complement with the noodles ? πŸ˜€

    I think they use stewed pork here not the imitation char siew (red coloured boiled pork). They use normal chili sauce – usually bought in big plastic drums – I saw Yeo’s at one place, dunno the rest…but all, no longer the local made ones sold in jars a long time ago. That was soooo good!

  10. So many kampua noodles stalls there huh? Guess it must be a must-eat at your place πŸ˜‰

    One in every coffee shop…and every block of shops here, at least one or two coffee shops or more. Must know where to go for the best ones.

  11. I would like to try the Liver soup. That would be nice. Some people geli wanna eat/drink liver but I am not

    I would too but these days, can’t eat that too often for fear of a gout attack. They’re very generous with the liver here – my missus loves theirs.

  12. Do they sell Instant kampua Noodles in the supermarket? You made me hungry and greedy now. Maybe some hawker stalls might sell them in KL. Do you know of any that might sell similar taste here??

    Dried kampua…and you have to cook your own with your own ingredients. You can google – lots of places selling kampua over there now.

  13. Pian sip…I think it’s gouzi in Mandarin. The dumplings looks really good. Sigh…. I really want.

    Don’t think it has a Mandarin name – it’s a local Foochow delicacy and I guess the Mandarin name is “pian nik/sik” as it is called in Foochow.
