That’s good…

Yes, I have been dropping by here quite frequently but I did not blog about those visits as you’ve seen them all before. What they serve here is consistently good but there was one occasion when I was grumbling about the coffee. Well, the “new” guy is no longer around and now, they have a lady making the drinks…and yes, the kopi-o-peng (iced black coffee) is quite all right and it is only RM1.70 a glass. You may need to fork out 10 sen or even 20 sen more at some places in town.

I also thought at the time that the serving had shrunk but of late, we do get the usual amount…

…like before. My missus had their fried kway teow/flat rice noodles (RM4.00) just the other morning and got just as much as before.

On a more recent visit, I noticed that the crockery was badly chipped so I shared a photograph on Facebook and pointed that out. It is not healthy to use plates and bowls that are chipped – those should be replaced once that happens…and I am glad to say that this time around, I did not see any of those anymore and that’s good, very very good and I must say that this is anytime better than those colourful plastic ones too. I don’t know about everybody else but I always have this thing about hot food served on plastic – I do not feel quite comfortable with that.

I decided to try their kampua noodles with beef curry (RM5.00)…

I saw somebody eating that on an earlier visit and I was wondering what that would taste like.

It was nice but perhaps, it would take a little getting used to…

I would prefer to have kampua noodles the way they were, they are and always will be and as for the beef curry, it would go very well with their nasi lemak – you can have the regular or a choice of fried chicken wing, masak hitam beef or beef or chicken curry to go with it, all nice.

In the words of Shakespeare, all’s well that ends well…and now that, all is good here, I would say yes, we would most certainly be stopping by time and time again for a bite.

  1. The kampua noodles with beef curry looks so tasty that I am hungry now.

    It sure looks good, eh? I was not too excited about the incompatibility of the tastes of the kampua noodles, tossed the usual way and the curry poured over it. Maybe nicer with our not-so-yellow noodles, just boiled to cook and with the curry gravy poured over it, meat on top.

  2. Now I am hungry, thanks to your lovely photos. πŸ™‚ It’s a good thing I will start making my supper shortly.

    …and I gotta start cooking my breakfast soon. πŸ˜€

  3. The kway teow looks yum. I’m with you on not being fond of hot food on plastic.

    Our favourite, among the best in town. I wonder if that is safe, using plastic. I think I did read something about melamine…and like plastic, they still use that a lot here.

  4. That is something different with the kampua beef curry. The curry looked good to me.

    I also agreed with your on the chipped crockery. I still can accept the chipped plates or bowls but definitely not the chipped cups and saucers or those glasses. A big no-no!

    All no, for me. They should be more careful in the washing. Many places like some kampua stalls do not use plastic and their bowls and plates are all not chipped.

    The curry here is very good. Sometimes I would tapao for my girl to take to her jungle school but I prefer it with nasi lemak, not kampua.

  5. Taste more or less like curry mee ???….looks good though. Fried kway teow, so much for RM4 only. Good deal.

    At least 20 sen more than some places, I think but it is very nice, so I would consider it value for money.

  6. With curry, I must have rice – that’s the only way for me. Don’t like it with bread, as some people do.

    I don’t mind it with bread or one of the Indian roti’s.

  7. I don’t like to be served with chipped utensils too.. the other day in the restaurant, I was served not once but two times with chipped spoons, I have to make two times request to have the spoons changed… sigh…

    Spoons even worse!!! You put in your mouth. That is terrible!!! Chipped plates and bowls, usually a bit at the edges – at least, the chips do not get into contact with the food or go into your mouth.

  8. beef curry is certainly something I’d love to try.

    They have chicken too for people not thus inclined, both good. For me, I think their Sarawak’s own masak hitam beef is nicer. πŸ˜‰

  9. The char kuey teow looks good!! Anyway I prefer the one with fishball and pork, rather than with egg and clams…

    This is a pork free place so only prawns and egg and chives and bean sprouts in the kway teow. You don’t get clams in the ckt in Sibu, usually.
