One day later…

We did not get to go for our regular Saturday special lunch treat for my girl as we went out with her grandpa that day but we did manage to do it one day later instead, on Sunday on our long weekend, thanks to the public holiday on Monday.

We dropped by here

Le Cafe

…to see what they had on the menu that was gluten-free and all right for my girl to eat and no, we cannot no longer go for their very nice claypot chicken rice since we’re off soy sauce these days. In the end, we decided to share the barbecued chicken rice (RM25.90)…

…which was really very nice, half a chicken…

…and we sure would not mind ordering that again on our next visit.

My girl wanted the mushroom soup (RM8.90)…

…and yes, it was good, just that we had to tell them to leave out the croutons, no bread for her as well. They had those floating on top in the photograph in their menu.

We also had their lamb shank (RM33.90)…

…that we had and enjoyed before. Oh? The price has gone up by RM2.00, I see? We thought it was nicer the previous time around…

…or maybe it was overshadowed by the lovely sauce that came with the barbecued chicken.

They do enjoy quite a bit of business these days, it seems but service was good (just that you would have to be conversant in Mandarin) and our orders were served pretty promptly. We would be dropping by again, that’s for sure.

LE CAFE (2.299452,111.830832) is located along Brooke Drive, on your left if you are driving from town, in a block of shops after you have gone past the building where the Sheraton Restaurant is…before you get to the traffic lights where you turn right to get to the Sibu Medical Centre.

Ancient relic but very young at heart. Enjoys food and cooking...and travelling and being with friends.

  1. I prefer the lamb shank from the photos though the roasted chicken look really good too.

    It was not stewed enough, not fall off the bone tender and I would prefer the usual bolognese-like gravy. This one was ok just that it was nicer the last time and the chicken won the day.

  2. Lamb shank…yes! And I also love chicken! 🙂

    Between the two that we had that day, the chicken was nicer but the lamb was good too, just needed to stew it a bit longer.

  3. I like the barbecued chicken & mushroom soup. A huge portion indeed.

    The young girl who took our orders specifically told us that we should share so we were expecting the portion to be quite big.

  4. I remember this cafe. The bbq chicken looked great.

    The presentation of lamb shank looked weird. Rather empty on one side. No greens??

    I never really paid attention to how the lamb shanks I have had are served but I would insist on the bed of mashed potatoes underneath. One place here did not have that and I was quite put off by it. Have you tried the one at Junk? The best I have had anywhere and yes, they do have a lot more sides than this one though the last time I had it, the masked potatoes went AWOL (and maybe you need to fork out more too as well)…

  5. Why would they serve rice for the barbecue chicken dish? half bird chicken is not enough?

    Fusion cafe. This is probably one of their Chinese items, rice by the side (they have rendang and curry as well and some other local delights) and the girl did stress that it had to be shared. If it had been western, they would have to serve it with other sides like fries or wedges or coleslaw and greens.

  6. I’m so impressed by the look of that barbecued chicken!

    It was very nice but the price is on the high side, can get one whole smoked/roasted chicken elsewhere and still have change.

  7. Wow that’s a good serving size for chicken, looks good too.

    Half a bird but not all that cheap, can get one whole chicken elsewhere but of course, the way of cooking would not be the same and this one was very nicely done. Don’t mind having it once in a while.

  8. I will go for the chicken as I no fate with lamb…

    My girl loves lamb, my missus not really…but when you have a daughter, like or not, just eat lor. Sometimes have to buy the meat and cook at home even. 😀

  9. Wow, the BBQ chicken rice comes with half a chicken. I like!

    I would think the price was a little too steep for a chicken dish – usually chicken is cheaper than pork or beef or lamb, but it was nice.
