Some things change…

It must have been years since the last time we dropped by here…

The stalls selling the beef noodles that we loved a lot and the kway chap are still there and the chu char place at the back is still around, the one with the seemingly very popular chap fan, come lunchtime. However, the kampua mee people did not look familiar – they’re probably new but I did not ask to find out and neither did I order anything from the stall to try.

This stall…

New stall

…is definitely new and my missus ordered the zhao chai hung ngang (RM6.00)…

…from there. She said it was salted vegetables, not zhao chai (preserved vegetables) but it was nice and she did enjoy it.

This Malay stall…

…used to be there and now they have moved to the other side and the roti canai stall has moved in a bit.

I saw this sign…

Durian canai

…above the latter but no, I was not tempted to give it a try, not when I’m down with a terrible cough from all the durians, dabai and rambutans.

I’ve tried some of the things that they had at the aforementioned Malay stall before and I thought they were all right, nothing really sensational but good enough should one feel thus inclined.

That morning, I had the nasi lemak special (RM5.00)…

Nasi lemak special

…which is cheaper than most other places but unfortunately, the rice was not lemak and kinda dry and hard. The sambal was good, spicy, and the egg was fine – they flipped it while frying and that was why it looked like that.

When using a pan, I would flip my fried egg too…

My fried egg, flipped

…but one would have to be fast – turn off the heat, flip the egg and let it cook lightly on the residual heat for a couple of seconds and flip it back again almost instantly and the egg yolk would be white on the outside, while still runny…

…on the inside and not looking so raw as in a sunny side up nor so overdone like the one here.

The Indian rojak (RM4.00 with egg)…

…from that same stall was nice – ours here is more like the Indonesian gado-gado than the Indian pasembur in the peninsula.

There is a Malay nasi campur stall further in and I did go and have a look. There were a lot of people and it sure looked popular but I didn’t think there was anything there that would get me to come back here and try.

YUMMY’S KAFE is located along Jalan Bako in the same block as the Alliance Bank, Sibu branch, at the other end on the right, off Jalan Tuanku Osman or you can come in via Brooke Drive as well.
