Next of kin…

My missus’ 4th Uncle residing in Kuching came to Sibu on a visit and of course, we took him out for dinner with my brother-in-law and his wife here…

Nice House Restaurant

It was a simple dinner with the usual favourites like their fried midin with belacan (dried prawn paste)…

…and it was very nicely done. Much to our delight, it was quite spicy so everyone enjoyed that.

We also had the fried cangkuk manis with egg…

…and the Foochow-style tofu soup with canned oysters…

…and of course, we did not miss out their own-made tofu

– we insisted on having that as well even though the lady taking our orders said that we already had a tofu dish – the soup.

Another favourite of ours, their honey prawn balls…

…was well-received by one and all and this time around, since we had more people unlike those times when there were only the three of us, we asked for their steamed herbal chicken…

– just half as we did not think we could finish one whole chicken. That was really good and we sure would not mind ordering that again the next time we drop by here, provided we have enough people with us.

The total came up to  RM105.80, inclusive of rice and drinks for 6 people. That sure was very reasonable, don’t you think?

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

  1. The steamed herbal chicken, has been a while I had it in this way as not many places selling wrap in aluminium foil…

    They just steam it like that? This is how they do it here, wrap in foil inside, cling wrap outside and steam, all the sweet juices will be kept inside. My missus can cook this very well too.

  2. Cheap considering what you order. Wouldn’t able to get such price over here. Everything looked yummy to me. I still not able to find that canned oysters in the market. Lol.

    Anybody going to Kuching soon? Just let me know, I’ll send you a few cans.

    1. No need to trouble you. I will ask my BIL to find for me when he is going back to Kapit. ^^

      Ok, just let me know if he needs any help. You have my number still, I guess? 😉

  3. Yes very reasonable, like less than RM 20 per pax

    One of the preferred places to go here, not expensive, food is great and one gets served real fast.

  4. That was indeed a scrumptious dinner. All the dishes looks so appealing. Price is reasonable and worth every cent.

    One of the most popular places here, food is nice and inexpensive.
