Something light…

We were all feeling very full after the heavy lunch that afternoon so we decided to go and have something light for dinner. That was how we ended up here. It was just a one shoplot cafe when it first started and then, it took over the last shoplot in the next block and had a roof/shade constructed adjoining the two shops so diners could sit and eat in the open space in between as well…and now it looks like they have acquired another shoplot where they have their air-conditioned section…

Personally, I certainly would think twice about sitting inside as it is always so very crowded here so I can imagine the din in that enclosed section. This place is always packed and very noisy and the fact that they play that clubbing kind of music sure does not help one bit as everyone would need to speak louder to be heard. We went around 6.00 p.m. thinking that there would not be so many people since it was still rather early but how wrong could we be!!! The place was already filled to the brim and luckily, we were able to get a table.

Service was great and we promptly placed our orders and were served in a jiffy! I wanted to try the tortilla selections that are new on their menu and I picked the Aloha quesadillas (RM7.90)…

…which, if I’m not mistaken, had ham and pineapple inside while my girl asked for the smoked salmon ones (RM7.90)…

They were both very nice and came with nachos and salsa dip by the side but between the two, I think I liked my choice more.

My missus ordered the same thing she had on our previous visits – she obviously likes it a lot, their teriyaki chicken chop (RM8.90)…

…but of course the serving was too huge for her to handle so she had to enlist our help to finish what she had on her plate.

That’s the thing about this place – the food is pretty good and VERY cheap and the servings are HUGE plus the service is fast. You would just need to bear with the crowd and Β at times, getting a table may not be all that easy.

I also ordered this interesting looking dessert – the tofu fua and red bean combo (RM3.80)…

…which was very nice but it was served first and I had to eat that while it was still nice and cold. The red bean was only on the top though – it was all tofu fua. I thought it would be half of each in that bowl.

As for our drinks, they were all RM4.50 each…

…and perhaps, you would like to try and guess what fruit drink each of them was and which one I had. Who knows? I may just send a prize down your way if you get both correct? Wink! Wink! LOL!!!

  1. Business must be very good if they keep expanding but still there are not enough seats. Guess it must be due to its Western meals which are very good value for money.

    The drinks are lime juice, passion fruit juice and dragon fruit juice? You had the passion fruit?

    Obviously. When you’re cheap and the food isn’t too bad, you can get everybody coming. Such businesses need the huge turnover to make a profit – they wouldn’t want you to sit all night and chat either, I’m sure.

    Righto, let’s keep the guesses coming… Will reveal everything later – stay tuned! πŸ˜€

  2. Same like Mun, passion fruit, lime and dragon fruit..
    I love love love all the food you ordered.. Looks like food from Chilis but I don’t always dine there, very expensive.. I love that plate of chicken chop, I could finish all la, no sharing needed, haha..

    Yup, this place is mainly for the young – they love the food they serve here and the best part is it is dirt cheap!

    Same as Mun? Not guessing which one I had?

    1. Anson, right? I been there few times but never try the dishes you have ordered.

      Yes. It is crowded and usually I bring my kids there ard 530pm. Still early so not so packed.

      Yup, that’s the one. Good to go early. Can take nicer photos too.

  3. Adoi, why they serve dessert first? You should give them constructive suggestion about this πŸ™‚
    I’m guessing, passion fruit juice, lime juice, and the last one looks sort of like grape juice concentrate. They’re probably all syrup and have elaborate names that I would not know. I’m guessing you went for the lime juice? πŸ˜€

    At the prices you pay, no holds barred. Anything goes. Ok, keep the guesses coming…! πŸ˜‰

  4. I like the teriyaki chicken & the dessert. My wild guess…passion fruit, lime & dragon fruit juices….& lime juice for you.

    My missus’ favourite, the chicken. There’s nicer elsewhere….at double/triple the price. Hmmmm…ok. guess noted.

  5. Isn’t interesting how drinks these days are often more expensive than the meal.

    Not quite here…but I know at Secret Recipe – some of the drinks are more expensive than the cakes. 😦

  6. Tou Foo Far with red bean..Yeah, it’s my kind of dessert.Hot and cold, seems like a combination of Yin & Yang.hehe

    You can have this when you come…if you can get a table, that is.

  7. These type of portions suit me real fine.. not too big.. .and of course the taufofar caught my eye… red bean mixed with it? hmmmm… worth a try! Some people can be so innovative!

    Coming soon? My Trengganu friends just left! They have a great time…eating! πŸ˜€

  8. Very nice food! Lets, see – the drinks are passionfruit, lime and dragonfruit. You had passionfruit hee..hee… right or not?

    Wait…wait! The truth will be revealed soon enough. πŸ˜€

  9. Look at the chicken chop!
    You’re making me so hungry now.

    >the tofu fua and red bean combo
    This one is also new to new! Before I left Malaysia, we only had plain version. LOL
    How time has changed! Actually, you know what?! I miss bubur pulut hitam so much!!!

    I miss that too. Got a packet in my pantry, yet to cook it. Hopefully, I can do it this weekend.

  10. Ok, since it looks like there aren’t going to be many more comments, I might as well not keep everyone in suspense and end their misery.

    Nobody got all the drinks correct – from left to right, they were passion fruit, honey dew and dragon fruit. Looks like everybody stumbled on the second one.

    A couple of you guessed correctly that I had the passion fruit…but since nobody got it all right, I guess there will not be any prize going in anybody’s way. Better luck next time. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    1. But but but…. what is the slice of lime doing in the glass of honey dew? A red herring indeed.

      I guessed you had passion fruit only because I know you don’t like sour food so lime juice is out (because I guessed wrongly that the 2nd drink is lime juice) and I think many people feel that dragon fruit tastes a bit bland so as you like flavourful food, passion fruit is flavourful so I guessed passion fruit.

      More guessing games please! Someone here wants to win that prize of yours, hahahaha! πŸ˜€

      πŸ˜€ Yes, I was wondering about the slice of lime too. Maybe it was just for the colour – otherwise, it would be all white, so dull. Stick around – there may be more guessing games coming up. LOL!!!

  11. Thank you for the review! The dishes look really well. I’m so curious how the dessert tasted like! Drinks look so nice! When I’ll be home I’ll try to check them on web πŸ™‚

    The dessert is that soft bean curd thing plus red beans boiled till soft and mushy. Normally, they pour (palm) sugar syrup…but this one, the sweetness comes from the red beans. Very nice.

  12. ooo, quesadillas and nachos … interesting to note the presence of tex-mex cuisine in sibu … shows that gastronomy has truly crossed all borders, ya πŸ™‚

    This place is truly fusion. Thankfully, some of the items of the menu are pretty good.

  13. The food looks great and the fruit juice looks wonderful also. I’m currently sipping a carrot, grape, lemon and ginger drink. It is delicious! A natural boost of energy during my workday. πŸ™‚

    We don’t usually go for such drinks…but my girl loves the pineapple ginger soda at another place here. I enjoy Indian ginger tea too.

  14. We can hardly find “western” type food for less than RM10 in KL nowadays. either tht or it tastes really bad. LOL!

    Yes, some friends from KL came and their uni friend took them here. I was thinking – why would anyone want to take any visitor here? They would have better where they come from. However, they told me that they enjoyed the food very much, huge servings and unbelievably cheap!

  15. Clubbing kind of music? That’s very weird, from the picture the restaurant doesn’t really look like it duh!

    No, not really. I guess they feel it’s trendy to “make some noise”, I wouldn’t know.

  16. I like to eat red bean with tofufa, We have this mix in KL too and the red bean is usually added as a topping and we can choose other toppings such as mung beans, kidney beans, peanuts, and etc. Sold by Snow Flake eatery, they have a few outlets, one in Pavilion but quite pricey for a dessert here, unlike yours, the price is so attractive.

    Eyewwww!!!! Been to Snowflake…no, thank you very much.
