A brand new day…

It was a brand new day – Day 3 of our food marathon and we started off with a beef noodle breakfast at my favourite place in town. I had the kampua kosong (without meat) and a bowl of soup with beef, tendon and tripe…


…while some had the soup version with the bigger yellow noodles…


…and one of us had the kway teow (flat rice noodles)…


After that, we adjourned here to take photographs of the desserts but unfortunately, they did not have their chocolate lava cake that morning and only their rum and raisin mille crepe was available…


…and also their tiramisu mille crepe…


…and their creme brulee…


The others also sampled some of the other items on their menu but I just could not take in anymore after that initial round of beef noodles.

Next stop, the SEDC stalls at Simpang Tiga – the junction where these roads – Jalam Awang Ramli Amit (formerly Race Course Road), Jalan Ria, Jalan Kpg Nangka and Jalan Kpg Hilir meet. This is where one can get the Melanau delicacy, tumpik, from Stall No. 10 at RM3.00 a piece…


…inclusive of the gula apong (nipah palm sugar) dip…and we also had the opportunity to take photographs of their rojak Γ  la gado-gado (RM4.50)…


…which was quite nice and theirs had potatoes in it plus three sticks of satay…


I wish they could add one hard-boiled egg as well though – I would not mind paying a bit extra for that.

Other than that, I also insisted that we simply had to take a photograph of their Sarawak laksa special (RM6.50)…


…as the two big awesome-looking prawns would make it look so good! Unfortunately, it only looked good – as far as the taste went, I don’t think I would bother dropping by there for it again.

Having got the photographs we wanted there, we left the place and went in search of a place for…LUNCH!

  1. Wah … what food marathon ?? I jealous already !! The sarawak laksa and the big prawns … It looks so good , but not nice ? Hmm … I’m sure the prawn meat at least not too bad ?

    Yes, the prawns were so so so good – very fresh, firm & sweet. I thought they had their own supply so I went to ask – the lady said she also got them from the market. Gosh!!! They’re so expensive, yest she could give two per bowl at that price.

    Very popular, lots of people ordering that so I guess there are people who do not mind or as a matter of fact, they do enjoy it like that – to each his own!

  2. I like beef noodles too. Over here in KL, there’s one shop called Lai Foong, which I personally feel it’s nice la, I think Meow blogged about the same shop before.. Anyway, yeah, like you, I always have my “ngau lam”, tendons and balls with glass noodles (something like laksa noodles)..

    I like (Indian) rojak too. They are always next to the cendol seller, hehe.. One selling cendol, the other selling rojak, always long queue over here.. Call me weird, I always order my rojak like this: No sayur, just keropok, tauhu and egg..

    The beef noodles here are like the one at Lot 10 Hutong, very nice…but the best is at Kah Hiong in KK, Sabah. Awesome, that one! I love pasembur – ours not exactly the same, the sauce is like satay’s peanut sauce so it’s more like a cross between Indian rojak and gado gado. Very nice too.

  3. wow, beef noodles!! wow, mille crepes!! wow, rojak!! wow, tumpik!! wow, creme brulee!! wow, sarawak laksa!! so many things to eat!! i am sure this was a very happy food marathon!! yummy yummy~~

    If only you were around here then – you could have joined us. So much to eat!!!

  4. All looks good especially the rojak with satay. After all the heavy breakfast, tummy still got space for lunch, eh? If me, that will last till dinner.

    That was why it was such a struggle for us. Was very nice when we first started…but by the 3rd and 4th day, I wouldn’t mind if I’d never see any food ever again. 😦

  5. Rm 6.50 with 2 huge prawns sounds like a good deal but too bad the taste isn’t up to your standard, i’d love to try their gado-gado though πŸ˜€

    Yup, the one here is quite good – tastes vary between the places selling this, some may find others nicer…but this is good enough for me, and it’s the only place giving satay with it.

  6. Really a food blogger now, Arthur!! And a very frank one too… at least we know which is good, which are not… nice but not coming by again… we will read between the lines…hahahaa…

    Yup, I will leave very broad hints… πŸ˜‰

  7. The gula apong surely looks interesting. I am keen to try it..

    You can buy, one tub around 4-5 ringgit. Nice to eat with lots of things e.g. boiled tapioca…

  8. OK, Ah Xian beef noodles in my list too. hahahahha

    Have not try the gado gado and tumpik before.

    You can try when you come back…less than two months to go. πŸ˜‰

  9. Too bad abt the Sarawak laksa, it looks pretty awesome.

    Just about shows that one can’t just judge by the looks – some things may not look so nice but can be really awesome.

  10. yes, kampua kosong is da best!

    You haven’t tried this place. Melissa is not a fan of kampua but she loves the one here!

    1. if u say it is good… definitely good one lah…

      Come, come. So nice the kampua and you have not tried, how can? πŸ˜‰

  11. All I can say is yummy, especially the tiramisu mille crepe! =D

    Happy Chinese New Year to you, your missus and Melissa, STP! =)

    Thank you, and the same to you and your family too.

  12. Only interested on the deserts part, hahaha!!! Maybe for girls desert always look more attractive!!! =]

    DeSSerts! Thought girls would avoid them…for fear of putting on weight?

    1. Hahaha, didn’t realize I typed wrongly, thanks for correct me!!!

      Girls always like to keep some space for desserts!!! =]

      Yakah? Thought they all want to stay slim. Guess they will just nibble, nibble a bit…and push the rest to the guys? Hehehehehehe!!!!

  13. I haven’t been to the SEDC stalls in ages! It’ll be nice to have that rojak with satay! πŸ˜€

    That’s quite good, though I can’t say the same about much of what they sell there. 😦 You can try the tumpik if you never had that before.
