Back together…

A cousin of mine had informed me earlier that she would be coming to town and I said I would meet her upon arrival at the airport and we would go for dinner together. Coincidentally, that was the evening of the day of my friend’s funeral and I would be in Kuching then so that was why I booked my return ticket on the same flight as hers so I could fly back to Sibu together with her and my missus could pick us up at the airport and we could go all for dinner on the way to her hotel.

Well, everything went smoothly as planned and no prize for guessing where we went that night…


This was new on their menu – their sour chicken (RM16.00 with rice)…

Payung Sour Chicken

I was told that they cooked it with calamansi lime juice. It was very nice – we all enjoyed it very much and I would say it would be something worth having for a change but personally, I prefer my usual favourites on their menu such as their otak-otak (RM13.00 with rice)…

…and their kacang ma chicken (RM16.00 with rice)…

…with a special request for extra traditional white wine and of course, for our side dishes, we had their every popular mushroom roll (RM8.00)…

…and their Payung rojak (RM10.00)…

– I did ask for a bit more of the buah kedundung (umbra) leaves – I never knew they were edible but once I’ve tried, there has been no turning back since.

For dessert, we had their banana cake with ice cream (RM8.00)…

…and their durian ice cream (RM8.00)…

…with extra durian cream, also upon request.

My cousin had been here a few times before and she loved everything they served a lot so there were no second thoughts as to where to take her for dinner on her first night in town and needless to say, she enjoyed everything so much…and could not wait to take photographs of everything on her iphone to share on Facebook for family and friends back in Kuching to drool…drool…drool over! Hehehehehehehe!!!!!! Don’t we all enjoy doing that? Wink! Wink! LOL!!!

These came in the mail yesterday…

From Oz

I guess there is no need to mention who sent them. Thank you so very much, my friend – it is indeed so sweet and thoughtful of you to remember me while you’re Down Under having a whole lot of fun. Much appreciated.

  1. Weekend is here and everybody is getting up late. One glance of the food, I am pretty sure of the place. As always, food looks awesome and I am in love with all. Have a great weekend.

    Yes, whoever comes to Sibu must not miss this place – tell your friends about it if they’re coming to town. Ya, things are usually slower on weekends. You too, have a nice weekend.

  2. Always tempted to go there whenever I saw you posts about this place.

    Go ahead. Give it a try. I can say it is nicer than any place in Kuching…or for that matter, anywhere else at all. For one thing, their dishes are all original – can’t find anything that’s exactly the same elsewhere.

  3. Otak-otak with rice? Then it turns to be very big portion lo?

    Just nice. But when I ordered some home the other day for Chinese New Year, the boss made XL, double the size…but same price. Same with the mushroom rolls, so nice of him.

  4. Drooling by just looking at the durian ice cream… it seems like this is one of your favorite cafes in Sibu?

    Not one of my favourites – it is THE favourite of mine in town.

  5. the extra traditional white wine makes a clear difference in the flavour? 🙂

    Yes, more fragrant, tastier…like when having Foochow-style mee sua, we would want a little bit more of the traditional red wine. Yummmmm!!!!!

  6. I love all the food above… ok ok, don’t tell me got cheap tickets… I know, wait till I retire then can move more freely… must go in a group then baru shiok meating… I mean eating!! LOL…

    Muahahahaha!!!! Don’t get so excited. MEATing indeed! 😉 Hmmmm…can fly all the way to Oz, no time to come here…have to wait till retire. Tsk! Tsk!

  7. let me count…1 2 3…6… at least must spend 6 nights there then… actually, the best from Payong was the iced water…. hahaha… was so refreshing… ok lets wait for RC to plan tis time…

    The water stored in labu sayung last time, dunno now, naturally cold. 6 nights will be good – can go Sarikei, spend a night or 2 there. Throw in Kanowit too, day trip.

  8. I love kacang ma. Had one in KL..very watery 😦

    Not sure where one can get a good one in Kuching but this one’s very nice. Another place in town that was good – it looks like they’re not selling it anymore, whatever the reason may be.
