Here he is now…

This guy was once attached to a hotel in town…and later, he was at the subsidiary of our own Sarawak fast food franchise. and we loved his fried kway teow

…and would keep going back for more. However, he left the place and we did not know where he had gone to until I heard that he is here now…

I wasted no time at all in dropping by to check it out. My missus had his fried kway teow (RM4.00)…

…and she loved it! She was of the opinion that it was as good as what we used to enjoy so much at his previous location and a whole lot nicer than our Sibu all-time favourite.

I did not bring along my camera that day so I had to depend on the one in my mobile phone so perhaps, the snapshots do not do the food justice. I gave his nasi lemak special a try and opted for the daging masak hitam (literally translated as black-cooked beef) instead of the chicken curry (RM7.00)…

…and yes, I did like it very much. The beef was very tender and very tasty with the fragrance of the spices used and the sambal ikan bilis was very good too, spicy and to my liking. The rice was fragrant though I would very much like it to be a bit more lemak (rich with santan/coconut milk) but it did not matter so much really as with the beef and the sambal, I would say that I did enjoy it a lot.

This place is pork-free and they serve western fare at night – things like lamb chop, mushroom soup…at very affordable prices. If I remember correctly, the soup is selling for only RM1.50 a bowl. Besides, there are other things on his morning menu and I certainly would want to go back again soon to taste whatever else this guy has in store.
