My fault…

The sign was up for quite some time, at least around a month, I think, and I was eagerly waiting for it…

*Probably those guys stay upstairs on the first floor and that is why you can see their unsightly laundry hanging outside the window. Tsk! Tsk!*

…to open for business so I could drop by and give it a try.

Well, finally, it did…

…and I must say it was my fault – I did not ask to have a look at their menu…

…first before ordering.

If I had done that, I would have seen that the nasi bryani kambing daging (mutton curry bryani rice)i…

…was RM9.00, more expensive than many other places of this class elsewhere, the ones with the coffee shop kind of setting, nothing fancy.

I liked how they used long-grain rice…

…instead of the usual but I did not seem to detect much taste or fragrance in it so I would say that I was not really all that impressed.

I noticed that I did not get a papadum with it like how they would serve bryani rice elsewhere and if I had checked the menu first, I would have seen it in the list – RM1.00 for 3 pieces. Now, why on earth would I want 3? I only wanted one…and like a fool, I went and asked only to be told that I would have to fork out RM1.30 for 3. RM1.30??? But it said RM1.00 on the menu! Hmmmm…perhaps there was a breakdown in communication somewhere, something lost in translation.

The mutton curry…

…was all right, maybe not as nice as some place else but it was o.k. The dhal dip, however, was nothing to get excited about…and what was that? Acar timun? With two thin strips of cucumber? Ok! Ok! To give credit where credit is due, I actually liked the sauce.

Now, let’s get back to the menu! Nasi putih (white rice) is RM1.50, sayur (vegetables) is RM2.00 each, RM4.00 for two, RM5.50 in total at the moment so I guess the sotong (squid)…

…that my missus took was RM4.50 (not in the menu), more expensive than the kari ikan (curry fish), RM4.00 as the total for this nasi campur platter…

…was RM10.00 for one meat and two vegetables. That almost gave me a heart attack!!!

There! I did go and try in the end and we thought the food was all right, there are worse but there are others that are better…and much cheaper too. So will we be going back again? I guess the answer is pretty obvious, isn’t it?

CURRY HOUSE (2.304051, 111.848937) is located on the right along Lorong Pahlawan 7B/3, the lane heading straight towards the Sibu Bus Terminal. This coffee shop and Kayu Manis are directly opposite, in the block of shops on the left.
