Unintentional…

We did not intend to go back here again that day but we saw a new eating place in the middle of the next block so we went there to check it out. It turned out to be a Malay or perhaps, a Melanau Muslim eatery but we were told that they did not have much of anything that day as for some reason or other, they were going to close at noon. In the end, we just walked over to this other place in the vicinity to see what else they had to offer at the second and third stalls there…

Coffee & Tea 2nd & 3rd stalls

…the first one being the kampua mee stall that I had checked out the other day.

My missus had the fresh fish tom yam hung ngang, the big bihun (RM8.90)…

…from the second one, the one on the right, and yes, it was very nice, especially as it wasn’t Dory…

I don’t know what fish that was – they said something like “hai lian” but as far as I know, if it had been tapah, a plate of noodles with that would set one back by RM12-15.00.

I ordered the pork leg rice (RM8.00)…

…from the third stall, the one on the left in the above photograph but I wondered why I did not get any trotter. They were very generous with the green vegetables…

…though and there was mostly lean meat in what looked like pork belly…

Thankfully, it was very nice and I rather enjoyed it…but I wished they had given an egg with it – I missed that!

COFFEE & TEA (2.325932, 111.841566) is located at the junction of Jalan Teng Chin Hua and Jalan Ulu Sg Merah in the blocks of shops to the right of the traffic lights junction turning left into Lorong Sg Merah 2. if you are coming from town. On the other hand, if you are heading towards town, the blocks of shops are after St Teresa’s Catholic Church and the SIB Church on that same side of the road.

  1. I prefer fresh fish noodle if the Tom yum broth is not too spicy but I guess it is very spicy since your spouse approved of it.

    This is Sibu, Foochow territory so most of the time, anything at the Chinese places is not spicy. My missus did ask for some freshly-cut chili to go with it but I don’t think it was spicy enough for her. She loves it super hot like the tom yam we had at Payung.

  2. That is how I like my pork leg rice to be, mostly with lean meat.

    I don’t mind, anytime nicer than trotters, actually – all skin and tendon, no meat.

  3. I love fresh fishes in my noodle soup. Tom yum hung ngang, that would be something hard to find in Kuching.

    I am sure there are a lot of tom yam noodles in Kuching as well – what do they serve it with? Bihun?

  4. That’s very Malaysian of you to want an egg 😉 Hee, hee! The local influence has rubbed off on me and I too seem to think everything is better with an egg on top.

    I’ve a soft spot for stewed eggs – will definitely want one if I see any.

  5. You did not ask them why their pork leg rice has no trotter in it? I love pork trotter. You making me crave for it in the middle of the night, oh dear 😦

    I love stewed eggs too. My boys too. Our favourite 🙂

    Birds of the same feather, all of us. No, I did not ask as I did not mind. You’re craving kah? Yipee!!! 😀 😀 😀
