More than enough…

We were here

The Cafe IND Sibu

…a week or two ago and I had the fish curry from the Indian menu. It was so very nice but we were there at night and it was way too dim/dark to take any reasonably presentable photographs so I decided not to do so and I made up my mind to go back there again for it in the daytime. That was why last Saturday when my girl was home for the weekend and my sister-in-law was in town, we dropped by the place for lunch.

My missus had the Indonesian ikan kembong sumbat (RM18.00)…

For the uninitated, they would remove the meat from inside the fish without breaking the skin, get rid of all the bones and use the meat to prepare some kind of filling to stuff the fish. I cannot imagine me doing that, that’s for sure and yes, it was very nice though the fish available fresh at the market at this point in time was kind of small but they made up for it by giving more of the sides, the kerabu and the sambal terong, skin removed.

Upon the sister’s recommendation, my sister-in-law had the kalio ayam (RM14.50)…

…also from the Indonesian menu and yes, she enjoyed it very much indeed. However, the serving was way too big for her and in the end, she passed me one chunk of the chicken in the special Indonesian curry. My missus would do that all the time too whenever she had this.

It turned out that my girl wanted the fish curry from the Indian menu so I decided to order the mutton bryani (RM21.00)…

…instead thinking that we could share the awesome lamb curry…

…with a whole lot of meat in it. If anyone is wondering as to how big the serving is, that afternoon, I saw three ladies having their lunch there and they just ordered this and nothing else and they shared it all among themselves and yes, there was more than enough to go round, just that one would have to find friends willing to eat the same thing at the same time.

My girl had the fish curry with a special request for nasi bryani to go with it (RM19.00+RM2.00)…

…instead of the regular basmati rice and she remarked that somehow, she enjoys the Indian fish curry…

…a lot more the Malay version or the asam curry ones.

She did manage to finish the fish but had to leave behind a bit of the rice (she would usually eat it all up on our previous visits here) as she had a late heavy breakfast at home when she got up that morning, eggs and bacon.
