False alarm…

On one of the weekends when my girl was home, she said that she wanted to go for the nasi campur delights here but when we got there, from the outside looking in, it did not look like the place was open. We went past again the following day and no, the place was quite deserted – a stall was open but it did not look like it was the one we were looking for.

I must say that I was somewhat disappointed as yes, I did enjoy the food here though I was not exactly thrilled by their nasi bryani, available only on Fridays and it looked like they have increased the price by RM1.00 for the mutton…

…but as far as I know, it is the favourite of some folks around here.

It sure was a welcome relief when my missus and I dropped by the other morning and yes, it was business as usual – it was a false alarm, after all…and I did ask the girl and she said that they usually open till 8 at night but when the food runs out, they may close earlier.

My missus had the sotong (squid)…

…and the petai (stink beans) with prawns…

…as well as the pineapple…

The boss’ wife came and did some calculations and collected RM21.00 from me and when I asked her, she said that it was RM10.00 for mine (3 meat and 1 vegetable)…

…RM8.00 for what my missus picked (1 meat and 2 vegetables) and RM3.00 for the drinks.

I thought that was rather expensive…wait a minute, let me rephrase that! I thought it was exceptionally cheap the previous times we were here but considering the amount of everything that we helped ourselves to and how much we enjoyed it all, I would say it was all right and I would much sooner fork out that kind of money to have these here than what we had at that place that we went to not very long ago.

HARI HARI DAUN PISANG CURRY HOUSE (2.287364, 111.825614) is located at the hawker centre/food court along Jalan Temple (after the Tua Pek Kong Temple/7-storey Pagoda),  to the extreme left of the Sibu Trade and Exhibition Centre next to the Kedai 1Malaysia there. You can park inside for free on weekdays (no parking fee payable in Sibu on weekends) if you are going to eat there but if you leave your car there and walk to some place outside, I think the fee is RM2.00, no time limit.
