Let’s go bowling (2)…

Still on some of the stuff one would be able to get should he or she happen to drop by the Sibu Bowling Centre food court here, this is one thing not to be missed – the sotong satay…

Sotong satay

…from this stall…

Sibu Bowling Centre - satay stall

It does not come cheap though – RM2.00 a stick but I thought it was really very good and everyone enjoyed it a lot. The lamb satay…

Satay - sotong & lamb

…was good too but at that same price, even though it was much longer than the usual one can get in town, I thought it was rather pricey. The peanut sauce was yellow in colour, looking something like mustard and it tasted great – not the same as the usual, but I thought it was very nice.

The burger stall was not open that night when we dropped by but there were two other stalls there…

Sibu Bowling Centre - halal stalls

…selling halal food.

Hey!!! That’s  my friend…

Familiar face

…from here and yes, they are still selling their very nice ayam bakar (grilled chicken) rice and their fried kway teow with kerang (cockles).

We tried the beef steak, the chicken chop and the lamb chop…

Lamb chop

…from his stall and yes, I wouldn’t mind having any of those again – the mushroom sauce seemed very much nicer this time around than when we had it at the old place.

I didn’t try the fish and chips…

Fish & chips

…though so I am not able to comment on that…other than the fact that it did look nice.

From the other halal stall,…

Halal food stall

…I would suggest their bakso


It certainly was a lot nicer than the one I had here.

The mee jawa

Mee jawa

…was exceptionally good too – as good as some of the best ones around or perhaps, ever better than most. Even my missus who was never a fan of mee jawa liked it.

The beef noodles…

Beef noodles

…were so-so – I would prefer a very much stronger taste of beef in the soup and as for the nasi lemak

Nasi lemak

…the sambal was great but the rice, which was green in colour owing to the use of pandan, did not stand out above the rest that we have in town. I would like it to be a lot more lemak to really merit a thumbs-up!

The beef rendang

Beef rendang

was all right – it was nice, I suppose but I was already too full to tell by then.  However, I did notice that it did look kind of oily – typical of the cooking at many Malay stalls and shops as they do use a lot of oil to tumis the many ingredients that they use in the preparation. The real thing certainly looked a whole lot nicer though – like the aforementioned beef noodles, somehow, they did not come out looking too good in the photographs probably due to the fluorescent lights.

Hey! The guy from this particular stall knows me – he even knows my name! It turned out that he comes from the same kampung and his house is somewhere behind where my late grandma used to live. Gee! Small world indeed!

So, should you feel like dropping by here to try what they have to offer, they will be in full swing daily between 6.00 p.m. and 12 midnight though I think somebody said that they actually start at 5.00 p.m. Go ahead! Do go and give it  a try – I certainly would be back there again sometime to see what else they may have that is nice. See ya!!!

  1. Sotong satay… absolutely brilliant! I wonder why no one does it here in Penang :/

    You can give it a shot. May be making tons of money in no time at all. 😉

  2. Beef steak, chicken chop & lamb chop! My favourites! But I don’t think I can finish all in one go this time, hehe.. Down with sore throat and fever as a result of taking care of G for the past 1 week.. Antibiotics….

    Poor thing. Make sure you finish the whole course prescribed. Take care, get well soon.

  3. wahhh, sotong skewers … that’s quite cool. i’d like to see more seafood ‘satay’ around … wouldn’t mind some cockle satay! 😀

    So far, the only place where I’ve seen that would be at the satay celup joints – all on the skewers for you to dip into the bubbling “lava” and cook and eat…

  4. Very nice indeed with so many choices! I love lamb satay and sotong satay is something new to me. This would be a nice place to go to for some serious eating extravaganza!

    Indeed. Lots more…but just can’t try so many things in just one visit. Will have to go back there again another day.

  5. Spoilt for choice with all the sinful dishes. I would go for the mee jawa. Yummy!!!

    Lots of other choices. The mee jawa’s a good one but I sure would like to try whatever else they have there.

  6. awwwww, look at all those grills!! simply awesome.. and pity huh?? seems like many nasi lemak you have tried lately did not have the “lemak” that you expect huh?? same here, probably all cutting down the cost to put less lemak already??

    I guess it’s good enough for many…but definitely, not for me. Not lemak, not much different from eating plain rice. 😦

  7. Wah .. The sotong and other bbq stuffs look so.good as well as the beef. Aiya…people sure know you in Sibu. You are famous in Sibu because of your blog. I Google sibu food and your posts are everywhere.

    Blush! Blush! Dunno where to hide now…. 😀

  8. I prefer the food in the previous post.. more suitable for me… these are very heaty.. I sure get sore throat.. hahaha… but I like the first one though… sotong satay..

    I’m sure you do. I am quite familiar with your preferences now. 😉

  9. I love that sotong satay. Drooling over it now!!!

    So many yummy food. Makes me hungry. Time for lunch!

    Go, go over there and try. The sotong was really good, loved it! RM2 a stick though, not exactly cheap.

  10. Didn’t know there is a food court at the bowling center. If i didn’t read the header i thought you’re still at Wonderful Food Court. hahahha

    I love Bakso, and sotong satay, wow, but i am not a fan of sotong. The western looks good, and so do the nasi lemak.

    The bakso here is really good…and the western was very nicely done too. Haven’t gone back to Wonderful since that night – opens so late. I always eat at 6 one. Hehehehehe!!!!!

  11. At first I was thinking you said the guy that know you because of your blog, hehe!!! But the world is really small and always full of fate!!!

    Nope, I don’t think he’s tech-savvy. He’s not young…like me. 😉

  12. Out of all that I think the Mee Jawa appeals to me most!

    It was good too. Actually, I like the ayam bakar rice from the 2nd stall very much – the sambal is really very nice but our host did not order that. I had it when they were at another location, not here.

  13. Everything looks so good! We very rarely have satay nowadays, but Ramadan is coming soon and usually we will get some from the bazaars.

    I will have to resist dropping by those places – always seemed to want to buy and try everything.

  14. That guy knows you, knows your name, and maybe in the future knows your blog too.

    Maybe not. He’s quite old…like me. Hehehehehe!!!! He’s from my maternal family’s village.

  15. hahaha.. i was hoping to read the part (2) with some actions in bowling.. but it is still good to see a lot of good food here, just that a stick of satay for RM2?!!! *swallow saliva*

    Not expensive kah? It was a very long one though…and very nice.

  16. bowling- after that supper…

    I would think it is better to go for supper after bowling – they always say no activity after a heavy meal.
