He’s not there anymore…

The kampua noodles here…

…is the favourite of many – some would declare that it is the best in town.

Well, for your information, especially those of you who would never fail to drop by for a plate of the coveted stuff, sometimes more, everytime you come back to Sibu, this guy…

The guy

…is here…

The shop

…now, in the solitary block of four shops right across the road, Jalan Pedada, from the shops…

The other side

…where the Sunday Market is every weekend, also accessible from Jalan Tong San. I wonder why he has moved – he was at that old place for as long as I can remember, like forever! Well, for one thing, parking is definitely a whole lot easier at this new location, that much I would say.

Andy sent me a message the other morning saying that his favourite kampua mee people had gone missing – their café is a stone’s throw away. I did drive past that old place a few days earlier and I saw a young boy manning the stall and I was wondering who it was. It turned out that some other people had taken over so I went to this new place to confirm that indeed, they had moved here and to eat and take photographs so I could blog about it.

I had the “white” (RM3.00)…

Kampua, white

…and I added the chili sauce myself…

Chili sauce added

…while my missus had the “white” tossed with chili sauce…

I still am not convinced that this is, as what many will insist, the best in town and my missus agrees with me too, that it was all right and there are others elsewhere that are more to our liking. I liked their pian sip before and would have wanted to order that but business must be really good as by the time we got there at around 11.00 a.m., they only had the noodles left – everything was sold out for the day!

ORIENT CANTEEN (2.289916, 111.835333) faces Jalan Pedada, to the left of the four-shop block where Lucky Seafood formerly was, right across the road from the shops where the Sunday Market is on weekends. It is accessible via Jalan Tong San as well.
