Try it, you’ll like it…

After the Sunday service that day, I took my girl here to try the beef noodles that I enjoyed a lot and I was very sure that she would like it too.

I was going to order something else as I just had that a few days earlier and I thought of having something different for a change. However, the lady asked me if I wanted the special (RM8.00)…

…and I thought that I might as well have that to see what goodies they had in store…

Well, there wasn’t anything much actually, just the tripe…

…along with the beef…

…and everything else. I wish they had the tendons as well but there were none.

My girl and the mum (who refused to try it that day when I did) both had the regular, the RM6.00 a bowl and yes, they liked it a lot. I think I would just stick to that too the next time around and do without the tripe and save RM2.00 but if I am not mistaken, they have the dry version as well. Perhaps I should try that. I did sample the one here but I would not say that I liked it a lot.

So that was our brunch and for tea, I made these pancakes…

…following our usual recipe except that I substituted the sugar with brown sugar that I found sitting in the pantry. My girl loved it and kept going back for more and needless to say, that pleased me a lot.

Well, those were enough to help tide us over till dinner…and that will be in the next post. Stick around for that!

  1. The beef noodle looks very delicious but quite different from the ones I eat in KL. I love to eat pancakes too.

    Try this easy peasy recipe for the lovely pancakes! If I will do it, it means it is really very easy.

    I know the type of beef noodles that you would go for – like the one I had at Hutong Lot 10. That’s the one that I like more. We have that here as well, nice one.

    I never liked this type – people tell me it’s the Taiwan-style – not until that young guy at the other place we used to go to for this, the graduate who decided to go into this business instead of going for a degree-related job. Heard that he went and worked as an apprentice for some guy in KL for a year before coming back to Sibu to open his stall – that means you do have beef noodles this style in KL. Before him, all that we had had here were not really nice, we did not like any. My girl enjoys both so we would go for this type sometimes for a change.

    1. Oh, I like Taiwan style beef noodles a lot. Whenever I visit my grandma in Taiwan I would go to eat at various Taiwan beef noodle eateries – all the nice ones daily. The ones in KL that are nearly up to mark for Taiwan style beef noodle is from Din Tai Fung which is a famous restaurant chain from Taiwan. Since you say this is delicious the guy must have learnt the secret of cooking Taiwan style beef noodle successfully.

      It’s very good now, unlike when I tried a long time ago at their previous location – if that is the same one, that is – not too sure about that. The young chap’s that we enjoyed a lot before – his is good too. Dunno who his mentor in KL was, never asked.

  2. i like tendons too – anything that adds a feel of gelatinousness to a savoury recipe is a good thing for me πŸ˜€

    Gee!!! Looks like we are the same in more ways than one! πŸ˜‰

  3. With that beef noodle in the morning I am sure would last me till dinner! Haha.

    I usually do like what you did. Have hearty breakfast and then have something light like sandwiches, salads for lunch and I cook dinner in the evening. πŸ˜‰

    Yes, we had that after 9. Usually still full, come lunch time so no need to eat anymore, then have something light for tea…and have a nice dinner.

  4. Oooooo, the soup looks so so thick and flavourful.. But I like your pancakes more.. So buttery and fluffy.. I want 10 pieces to eat with butter & honey, thank you πŸ™‚

    I made two big ones for myself and ate while cooking the rest…and I had to stop myself from eating more or there would not be any left for everybody else once I finished cooking. It is that nice, take my word for it.

  5. Damn, i am having a sudden crave for beef noodles thanks to this post! Now where should i get one… hmm…

    Come to think of it, I never had beef noodles in Penang, only in KL. I wonder where I can get a good one over there. Did you get to try Ah Mui in Kuching? Over-rated, I would say. We have nicer here…and that type, cannot beat KK’s Kah Hiong’s. Best!

    1. we do have a few decent ones here but not the taiwanese style… more like the koay teow th’ng style with clear broth. i’ll bring you to one if you are here someday

      I wonder when I will ever be heading that way again. Used to go quite often as my girl was studying in SP. Currently, just can’t get away from my chauffeur duties on weekends and air fares during school holidays are not at all affordable. 😦

  6. The beef noodle can be my breakfast cum lunch and last me till dinner…

    Small eater, eh? Me too!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  7. I loves pancake, but have not made myself before…

    Can try. So very easy! Otherwise, you would not see me making them again and again…and it is very nice, take my word for it.

  8. Beef noodles & pancakes all looks good. Regular beef noodle for
    me since am not really into tripe & tendons.

    I guess you’re one of those old-school believers in not eating innards for fear of the high cholesterol level? I wish everyone is like you – beef tendons used to be so cheap, ideal substitute for sea cucumber in my steamboat…but the price has shot up since word went round that they have a lot of health benefits – collagen for people who want to stay looking young, gelatin for joints…and all that. Cannot afford to eat it anymore. Can google and read all about it.

  9. I love tripe, but seldom get it as the rest of the family won’t eat it.

    My girl would not touch it – caterpillars, she calls them. πŸ˜€ Not all that fond of the tendons either – like you, I am the only one going for these.

  10. Please tell me they have tendons!

    Unfortunately, no! I was disappointed too – I love tendons more than tripe but they do not come cheap, no more – not since word went round about the collagen and all the health benefits. 😦

  11. Yes, stick to the usual portion for RM6.. hahahaa..save two ringgit, nowadays everything is not cheap anymore… your pancakes looks good! I would end up like your girl too.. going back for more… πŸ™‚

    Come to Sibu and I can make them for you, sure you will like! Ya…save the extra RM2, only those few strip of tripe, not worth it. 😦

  12. I haven’t tried it , but based on your photos, i already like it! OM NOM NOM NOM πŸ˜›

    Oh? You’re here. Got a new post in your blog eh? Wink! Wink! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  13. Ah! Your pancakes, so nice and browned! I meant to try it but forgot. OK, will get down to it real soon πŸ™‚

    Usually not this brown, maybe it was because of the brown sugar…but just as nice! Go ahead and try, you will not regret it.

  14. over here too the meat getting less and less while price going up. No tendons ah…hmm.. just normal ones will do then.

    Yalor. I don’t mind going without the tripe. I prefer tendons.

  15. Beef noodles is not something I can easily eat as the boys and their daddy don’t eat beef. I can only eat this when I am out with friends πŸ™‚

    Of course you will give this a miss if you hop over here – you have it there, even better ones, I’m sure. Here, it’s kampua…and a whole lot of other great things this little town has to offer!

  16. My mom will do this some times in weekend for lunch and we like it a lot.

    The beef noodles? Wowwwww!!!!! She must be a really good cook. I’ve given up on beef at home, no fresh beef here and the imported NZ or Australian ones are very tough, not to our liking.

  17. How interesting!

    Yeah, I saw a lot of people ordering this too, but I didn’t feel like eating beef noodles that day. I’ll be sure to check this out before I go.

    You’re back in town? Good one, not to be missed.

  18. That beef noodles reminds me that I should go try the one at iCom square in kuching. They say the beef noodles there are superb. hehehe..

    and that pancake !!! i want some laaaaa.. so hungry now in office.

    Oh? Noted! Hope to get to try it if I get to go to Kuching again. Pancakes? Follow the recipe – if I can do it, anyone can…and it’s so very nice! You can take my word for it.
