More and more each day…

Last Saturday, my girl said that she wanted Sarawak laksa for lunch so of course, we headed for the one here (RM5.50)…

…our favourite in town, one that we feel is like the authentic ones in Kuching unlike some around town that are very popular too but we feel that they are actually not quite there. Don’t get me wrong though! I am not saying that they are not nice – in fact, they are, just that they are not quite the same.

Yes, as always, we enjoyed the one here very much…

…and rest assured that if it is Sarawak laksa that we want, we would always come back here.

We wanted the sotong kangkong too but the girl said they had no place to cook it, whatever that was supposed to mean. Maybe all the stations were occupied, used to cook all the other things on the menu so we decided to cancel our order in the end. We saw on the notice…

50 sen more

…that it has gone up in price – by 50 sen and the rojak as well. Well, I guess that’s the way it is with most everything around here, getting more and more expensive each day. Sigh!!!

I decided to order their chendol coconut special (RM6.50)…

the last time I had it was in 2008! It is actually a combination of cendol angtao and bubur cacar served in a coconut so besides the cendol and the ang tao (red beans), you will get some sweet potatoes…

…and yam…

Yam & sago pearls

…and sago pearls too.

Yes, it was very nice but there was so much in that one coconut. I think it would be good for someone dropping by just for a refreshing drink but if one is having something else too, that may be quite a bit too much to handle.

My missus did not want the laksa and asked for the pian sip (meat dumplings), dry (RM3.20)…

The ones here used to be my favourite in town but for some reason or other, they took it off their menu. Now it is back again and I did have it once, if I remember correctly, but I was no longer all that impressed anymore.

SIBU THOMSON CORNER (2.296517, 111.840710) is located at Pusat Tanahwang, opposite Sacred Heart Secondary School, Oya Road or you can go to their other outlet on the 1st floor of the Medan Mall, Jalan Wong King Huo.

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

  1. Sarawak laksa looks good and so is the chendol coconut special. The broth is thick and not diluted,that is how it should be.

    Yes, and not too lemak. I hear Sibu people prefers it very lemak but true blue Kuching laksa lovers will frown on that – says it’s more like curry.

  2. So many thing I am unfamiliar with. Wow!

    You would know wantons, bet they have those at the Chinese restaurants there. Pian sip is our local Foochow version of those.

  3. OMG i want that coconut cendol! So brilliant!

    You’re sure you can finish? You can enjoy the young coconut flesh inside as well once you’re through – I could not manage that anymore once I finished the cendol/bubur cacar. So full already.

  4. ooohhhh.. I am drooling over the coconut cendol!! I really don’t mind sharing, though it looks so good, I don’t think I could finish it all… how nice if Ipoh has something like this…. very impressive!

    Time to hop over to Sibu again! It has been so many years!

  5. Oh, I would love to have the Chendol Coconut Special! I won’t mind having that as my main meal hee..hee…

    I wouldn’t mind having that for my afternoon tea…and maybe, a couple of meat-stuffed kompia to go with it. 😀

  6. ooo … the sarawak laksa here seems like a local’s secret … if we were travelling from out of town, we might not realise it existed to visit it 🙂

    If you’re in Kuching, it is all over the city but like everything else, you will need to know where to go for the good ones. My Terengganu friends had one at a hotel there and did not like it…but when I took them to eat this one, they praised it to the skies! I would say that you will find it hard to find a really good one here in Sibu.
