Like home…

When any Sibu locals residing elsewhere, near or far, come back home, they would want to go and enjoy our hometown delights and then only will it feel like home. In the words of an old friend of mine who has since relocated to Adelaide in South Australia, “No matter how far and how wide we travel, when we come back to Sibu, this is the food that we miss so much and must have!

I guess this is the case with my sister-in-law when she came to town even though she can get these things in Kuching and she would like to have them for our lunch the first day she was here.

I took her here…

…for the Foochow-style fried mee (RM4.00)…

…which I feel is among the nicest in town. Unfortunately, they did not have any innards that day so we just had to be happy with the regular instead of the special (RM7.00).

Yes, she loved it and she also enjoyed the pian sip soup (RM2.80)…

– I ordered a bowl of that to share to go with our mee and I also asked for a plate of kampua mee (RM2.80)…

…for her to appease her craving. She enjoyed it very much too and if I remember correctly, she said that something like this would cost around RM4.00 in Kuching. Hmmmm…the price of living in a nice big city!

I guess she is not a big eater like some *cough…cough* and that was enough to tide her over till dinner time.

KEDAI KOPI SIBU (2.295345, 111.839757) is located at Pusat Tanahwang, the area of shops opposite Sacred Heart Secondary School along Jalan Oya. You turn left into the lane right after the SHELL petrol station and go straight ahead. It is in the last block along that lane on your right, before you turn round the corner where you can go straight ahead and that will take you to Jalan Pedada.
