This is not the first time…

No, it wasn’t the first time – I was here once before after the present people…

Sing Long Cafe chicken & roast meat stall

…took over from the ones who used to run the stall initially. That was back in 2015 but I could still remember how I did not really like the thick sauce that they poured over the meat right before serving.

Well, this coffee shop is located in the area of shops right behind the medical centre where my mum was (Thankfully, she has been discharged, Friday, and is now back home again, praise the Lord!) and as I happened to be passing by the other day, I decided to stop by…

…to give it another try.

The coffee…

Sing Long kopi-o-peng

…at this coffee shop was good, RM1.60, 10 sen more than what I had to fork out for the same here, just round the corner.

I was craving for some more siew yoke (roast pork) after the four miserable slices that I had in my platter the previous week so this was what I ordered (RM5.00)…

The rice was not anything to shout about – not the best nor was it the worst in town but I so loved the complimentary soup…

It was really good, not watered down or diluted like what one would get elsewhere and while others would use salted vegetables and give you a chicken claw in the soup (which I would not touch), here, they used those preserved Szechuan mustard green that I found a lot tastier and very much nicer.

Of course, I could not resist those lovely stewed eggs so I asked for one…

…and no, the guy did not pour any sauce over the meat…

…just a sprinkling of pepper (or maybe it was the mixture of toasted salt and pepper that they usually give with roast chicken at the restaurants) which was fine by me.

Yes, I would say that I enjoyed what I had that day…

…and I sure would not mind stopping by again.

Incidentally, if you are looking for pretty good yong tofu here in Sibu, this is the place to go to, the stall at the back, though the choices may be somewhat limited. Served in soup, personally I do feel it is nice, definitely good enough for me. That other place with the people from KL seems to have called its quits. I drove past the other day and it was closed and I did not see the shop sign and the banner. Anyway, I did not feel it was all that great, no love lost.

I WANT BBQ CHICKEN RICE stall is located at SING LONG CAFE (2.292595, 111.835979) located in the Fortune Commercial area (behind Rejang Medical Centre), Lorong Chew Siik Hiong, directly opposite the nursing college (KOLEJ ITA).

  1. I love chicken, as you know…roast pork, too, and rice! 🙂

    One of the better places around town, this one. There are so many but not all are worth dropping by for.

  2. looks good to me. And prices are cheap too, well if compared to KL.

    Dunno the current prices in KL. Have not gone for a long long time. Used to go for it at a coffee shop next door for my fix after 2-3 days of hotel food while attending my week-long meetings those days before I retired.

  3. I loved stewed eggs too but roast pork looks a bit too fat for me. Szechuan soup is one of my favourite soup.

    Of course you would not touch that – some more in a post coming soon. This is not Szechuan soup, it’s preserved Szechuan vegetable soup – not the same, the two.

  4. I do like Yong Tofu but not much love for chicken rice

    Then this would be a good place for you – you can have the yong tofu and others can order from the other stalls. There’s a kampua mee stall in front too.

  5. My grandma used to keep the chicken feet in the soup. I wouldn’t touch them either.

    Very popular these days. They say the collagen will keep one looking young and pretty. No, thank you. I can’t get the thought of what they have been stepping on out of my mind. LOL!!!

  6. The roast pork looks very good. My favourite meat.

    My girl’s favourite. Actually trying to see nice or not, next time can tapao for her to take to her jungle school and eat there.

  7. I also don’t like to drench that sauce thickened with corn starch. I prefer the dark soy.

    Eyewwwwww!!!!! No soy sauce for me – the taste is so strong it will drown the taste of whatever you are eating. Will only resort to it when the thing is so bland, so tasteless…like fish that is not so fresh.

  8. PTL that your mother is now back home. I think there is a typo in your sentence there – you mean now instead of not, right? I don’t like sauce over roast meat and braised eggs too. Now that you mentioned it, the best roast meat and chicken rice in KL is…. I don’t know because so far I have not eaten one that I would want to go back for more and more.

    Praise the Lord, indeed…and yes, thanks for pointing out the error – I’ve edited it already.

    Same here! Generally, there are a few around town that we like, some that is not worth a second visit but there isn’t actually one that is good on all counts. The roast stuff may be nicer but the rice is not that good or I like the rice but the meat is not as nice as that other place or we like the chicken but not the char siew and so on and so forth so all in all, I can’t say there is one that is a cut above the rest, none out of those that I’ve tried so far.

  9. The crisp pork look good. On the rare occasion when I have it, I only eat the lean bit. I prefer the ginger and spring onion sauce from a eatery downtown.

    Isn’t that the standard dip at all chicken rice places, ginger chili and lime? Some may be nicer than others though. My girl loves it when they give finely chopped garlic too. If you want only the lean, then might as well go for the roast ribs, all meat – char siew is all leab too but it will not taste quite the same.

  10. Hey, I would enjoy this meal too! With some added greens then perfection! The three layer RP is really tempting la!

    You’re ok with the fat, eh? I’m fine with it too but I will check the slab hanging at the stall – if too fat, then I will go for something else. I do not go for it all that often, anyway and we do not roast our own at home, so once in a while is ok.
