Things have pretty much gone back to the old routine now except that I do feel that a part is missing, no longer there. We still have prayers and rosary at the house – the last time will be tonight, 7 days after my dad’s passing.
Last Saturday evening, we went for the sunset service in church here, something we would usually do every week before sending my girl back to her school in the jungle the following day, Sunday and after that, my girl was delighted when I suggested dropping by here for a very late dinner. She loves the bryani lamb (RM19.50) – the one here is her favourite in town and of course that was what she had that night.
I did not want to take a lot of photographs as it was night and in the dim conditions, they would not do justice to the food.
My missus had their ikan kembong sumbat (RM17.50) again – it sure looks like this has overtaken the kalio ayam as her favourite dish here.
I had the ayam tandoori and requested for bryani rice (RM17.00)…
…instead of the usual Indian Basmati rice to go with it and yes, the chicken thigh was very nicely done, perfect on the outside and moist and tender on the inside and I loved the delightful flavours of whatever they used to marinate it.
We overheard an Indian man at the next table ordering some ladies’ fingers, Indian-style so we asked about it. Only then were we shown the menu with all the vegetarian dishes – probably they just assumed we would not be interested in those. We wanted the same but they were out of the vegetable (I reckoned that if it was something picked by a true-blue Indian man from India, not a local, that would be very nice) so we had to pick something else. In the end, we settled for the aloo ghobi curry (RM11.50)…
…a vegetable curry with potatoes and cauliflower…
Yes, it was good and rest assured that when we drop by again, we certainly would order more dishes from that menu to try.
CAFE IND (2.290813, 111.829294) is located along Laichee Lane, right behind one block of shops facing the main road (Jalan Kampung Nyabor) where the Bank Simpanan Nasional, Sibu branch (2.290561, 111.829071), is located.

I love aloo ghobi curry. I like indian food actually but Darling is not a fan but every once in a blue moon I’ll force him to accompany me to fix my cravings 😀
I love palak paneer too. Didn’t see that in their menu…and I love Indian, anytime more than Korean or Japanese and all the rest.
The chicken looks delicious! 🙂
They do it really well here, love it!
Though I am not into Indian food much, I think what you all had looks good.
I would go for this instead of a lot of other cuisines – all the aromatic & exotic spices and ingredients used in the cooking, anytime nicer than lots of msg and cooking oil.
I love Indian food but I seldom take tandoori and vegetable curry. Must visit an Indian shop to renew my love for Indian food. ^^
Actually I had Indian food in London. True Indian from India. Somehow tasted less spicier than what we have in Malaysia. Lol.
Go for North Indian, not spicy at all. Bombay Spices at Nanas Road is good.
That looks good! Indian food for me anytime 🙂
Me too, one of my favourite cuisines.
I’m surprised that the price points are quite high, maybe the Indian population is lesser over there?
This is a classier upscale place, nice decor, air-conditioned and all, and nothing like the uncomfortable rat-infested nasi kandar joints over at your side and even so, I was charged way over RM10.00 at one of them for just one squid (ok, it was fairly big) and rice swimming in all that curry gravy poured over it…plus the chef here is authentic North Indian, not the local mamaks.
Prices are a bit lower than my regular haunt, Payung but the servings are big – enough for two to share, especially small eaters.
I like the chicken thigh, hehe…
I sure enjoyed that!
Sorry to hear about your dad. I’m still on the road so haven’t checked in regularly. Sending love.
Indian food is quite expensive here, more so than Chinese. I like Indian food, though.
We do have a few cheaper places, the regular coffee shop setting and they may be pretty good too. This one’s a classy restaurant and the chef is an authentic North Indian, not a local, but after conversion, I guess you would say it is still very cheap, cheaper than what you all would have to fork out over there.
Until today, I still feel a part of me missing. Let alone when it is just 7 days. Take care of yourself. 😊
Thanks. I guess we will just have to learn to live with it and cherish the sweet memories of the happy times we shared together over all those years.
i guess with a loss this big, there will always be a part that feels missing, but hopefully time will continue to heal … oh, i like vegetable curries, especially creamy ones!
I sure would like to try and cook that one of these days.
Indeed, time heals, so they say.
