What I said…

When we were having dinner here with my cousin and her hubby from the UK that night, I met the proprietress of this place – it turned out that she is the wife of my ex-colleague in that same school that I was attached to right before I retired and it so happened that they were having dinner there too.

She said that she read what I said in my blogpost and had taken note of everything. I remember I enjoyed the nasi lemak that I had but my missus wasn’t too happy with her ayam penyet as it was way too salty. Well, the lady said that they had made sure that it would not be so from then on and as for my comment on the covered food warmers…

…for the nasi campur spread, she is now using these transparent covers…

…so one would be able to see what is inside without having to lift the lids.

When we dropped by the other day, my missus and I decided to try their nasi campur and as always, she just had one meat and two vegetables, the fish…

…salted vegetables…

…and the daun ubi/bandong (tapioca leaves) that I also had (extreme left)…

…but as always, I got carried away and I took the daging masak hitam (black-cooked beef) and the nice chicken rendang that I had with my nasi lemak on our last visit here and of course, I simply couldn’t resist the chicken liver…

– three meat and one vegetable altogether…

Sarah Islamic Corner nasi campur, my picks

I did not find out the breakdown of the prices of the items that we had helped ourselves to but the total for the two of us came up to RM16.90 which, of course, did not come as a surprise considering all the things I took. Most importantly, we enjoyed what we had picked and yes, we certainly would drop by again sometime if we are driving past this way – the location is not as convenient as some of the other places that we frequent, along the way between my mum’s house and ours.

Incidentally, they open every day, except Sundays, from early in the morning till around 4.00 p.m. and no, they do not open for business at night.

SARAH ISLAMIC CORNER, the first shop in the block oppositeΒ A-PLUS FOOD CENTRE/RESTAURANT (2.293355, 111.823653), is located among the shops along Jalan Kampung Datu, behind the block of shops (where Fair Price Supermarket is) near the traffic lights at its junction with Jalan Tun Abang Haji Openg and Jalan Kampung Nyabor.

STOP PRESS: I started this blog on this day 10 years ago in 2008 so today is its 10th Anniversary. Thank you to all for your unfailing support all this while – I am indeed most thankful for the many friendships I have made along the way and I sure look forward to more happy years ahead. Cheers!!!Β

  1. Everything looks great and I agree about the clear covers. That was a wonderful suggestion. That’s nice that she listened to what you wrote and made appropriate changes. Ohh, fried liver. My mom made those and I loved them. That shocked a few friends/acquaintances.

    Yes, she’s good. Many will turn a deaf ear, some will get nasty and of course, their unpleasant remarks will never get past moderation. It’s not about me, it’s about them – one should be open to criticisms, constructive ones especially to see what needs changing and only then can one improve in whatever one is doing.

  2. Such small world. Sibu is small, and I guess you would be able to bump into someone you know. Good that people read and take note of what you wrote over here.

    Love the nasi campur. Used to have a lot of that when I worked but not nowadays.

    Indeed, Sibu is very small. I always say if one farts at one end of the town, the other end can smell. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    I do enjoy the Malay nasi campur a lot more than the Chinese chap fan though I do not mind the better ones once in a while for a change.

  3. Those who can take criticism, their business will surely improved & bloom well. Everything in your platter looks good especially the daging masak hitam which is one of my favourite.

    Exactly! Whatever people have to say, they have their reasons. The least one can do is to listen and to consider…and change if one has to.

  4. I agree with what Irene has mention…

    I would agree too. Nobody’s perfect – always room for change and improvement.

  5. Good to see people are willing to take in constructive feedback, some may find it offensive tho

    Yes, some have heads that have grown too big for their feet.

  6. That’s nice to improve based on the customer’s feedback. Anyway, the food looks delicious but man you gotta control your intake!

    Hehehehehehe!!!! Food, glorious food!!!

  7. One decade already! Happy Anniversary STP!
    The price is considered reasonable for the dishes on plate.
    Most importantly she took your advise into consideration. πŸ™‚

    Thanks, 10 long years of a post a day, almost.

    Yes, we thought the price I was charged for what we had was ok, glad that she was receptive to what I said.

  8. That’s why people said even bloggers has a say in any things. Sometimes maybe even better because we spoke the truth.

    In all things, not just food, not all take kindly to other people’s comments, unfortunately.

  9. It’s really encouraging when proprietors take note of constructive feedback and make the relevant improvements. Would be happy to patronise a place like this πŸ™‚

    Yes, we certainly would want to go back more often.

  10. It’s great when restaurants take feedback to make themselves better.

    That’s the only way to improve but of course, they can ask for a second opinion from others to see the validity of a comment and how they can work on it eventually. One person’s opinion may differ from another.

  11. The good lady had taken your comments positively! What a princely meal you had, I love your choices πŸ™‚

    It was great, would certainly want to drop by again.

  12. The other day I bought a packet of rice consisting of four pieces of curry chicken rendang and cabbage.. it cost RM7. πŸ™‚ Don’t know whether to say it is cheap or not… and this afternoon I bought chap farn consisting of pumpkin, cabbage and a piece of meat pattie… all in RM5… πŸ™‚

    One meat and two veg at the Chinese chap fan here would be RM3.00-4.00. RM5 is a bit on the high side but 4 pieces of chicken and cabbage for RM7 is reasonable, considered as 4 meat and 1 veg.
