On the sunny side of the street…

It looks like this place takes Wednesdays off every week – we went there on a Wednesday but it was closed. There was a notice on the door saying that they were taking the day off and business would resume the following day, Thursday.

I was not keen on venturing some place else so we just dropped by this shop

…a couple of doors to the left at the end of that same block of shops.

I think the last time I was here was in October, 2016 and I loved the mee jawa from this stall…

…there and I would always ask for the special – for 50 sen more, one would get a few of their lovely prawn fritters. Their halal kampua mee is good too and yes, if you go for the special, you will get the prawn fritters as well.

My missus had the kampua mee (RM3.00)…

…that day but no, she did not want the special so it came without the prawn fritters.

I asked for their nasi lemak special (RM5.50) and got one fried egg…

…and one fried chicken wing…

I could tell that they used the same batter that they would use to fry the prawns for the fritters but no, I did not get any of the latter.

Sadly, the rice was not lemak – I could detect a very faint hint of the santan (coconut milk) in it, barely noticeable, I must say and I don’t think any pandan (screwpine leaves) was used in the cooking.

However, on the whole, it was all right as I could eat the rice with the sambal and everything else that came with it and to my delight, they gave two of this salted fish…

Normally, elsewhere, I would get one only.

I do think the one I had here was nicer, RM6.50 with a special request for their ayam percik and I did enjoy their nasi ayam a lot more, same price – RM5.50 too so I probably would not go back here for the same…

…again unless that other place is closed like that day, Wednesday.

SUNNY CAFE (2.318936, 111.831762) is located to the extreme left of the block of shops among those in between Jalan Tapang and Jalan Tapang Timur towards the end of Jalan Kampung Nangka, on the left – RTM Sibu is located right across the road on the right.
