Four years…

It has been four years since we last dropped by here for the simple reason that we did not enjoy what we had then. We used to – a lot but probably they had a new chef or something so we never bothered to go back there again. Well, we decided to check it out again that day to see if there was any improvement plus it was a good place to get out of the horrendous heat around here these past few weeks.

My missus had their claypot kway teow (RM12.00)…

…and she said it was good while my girl went for one of the 5 set lunches for the month of June, their tom yam lamb (RM9.00)…

…that came with a bowl of complimentary tofu & salted vegetable soup…

…and she liked it a lot too.

I went for their nasi lemak (RM13.00)…

…which was not lemak, the rice, that is, but the sambal was good, different from the usual but good.

The last time I had this, there were two sticks of satay – one beef and the other chicken – by the side and I was quite sure I saw beef rendang in the menu but there was none. Ah well!!! At least the fish was nicely done…

…and the egg yolk…

…was not overcooked though it was fried using the ring, not really the way I would like it.

I guess just by the look of it, it is nowhere near as nice as what one can get at Nyonya Colours in KL for around that same price…but then again, this is at a hotel coffee house and generally, things are more expensive at such places. Too bad the food is not necessarily nicer than elsewhere less classier and cheaper.

Incidentally, all the aforementioned prices are exclusive of the 6% GST and 10% service tax/charge but all in all, I would say it was a pretty nice lunch and I liked how the place was nice and cool and quiet, a good place to go for drinks and sit and chat all day with friends…and nobody will bat an eyelid.

COFFEE GARDEN is located on the ground floor of the Garden Hotel (2.288920, 111.831052), a stone’s throw away from the Sibu Gateway & Chinese Horoscope Park…
