Looks like they were right…

I’ve heard it said that the wat tan hor (fried kway teow/flat noodles with egg sauce/gravy) here…

…is very nice and I did try to drop by a couple of times but it seemed that the stall closed rather early, way before lunch time so I had not had the chance to give it a try.

Well, I did manage to catch them open the other day – they have now moved from their stall on the other side of the coffee shop, assuming they are the same people there, to this one…

…that I used to frequent sometime ago for the very nice ethnic nasi campur/mixed rice. For reasons unknown, those people are no longer doing it anymore – as a matter of fact, I don’t even know if they are still running the place selling the pansuh (cooked in bamboo) and all the barbecued stuff in the evening anymore these days.

The people selling the drinks also looked rather different from the ones before, as far as I could remember, but the kopi-o-peng (RM1.60)…

…that I had was all right, not the best in town but it was good enough.

As for the wat tan hor (RM5.00)…

…it certainly looked like they were right about it.

Yes, I would agree that it…

…was pretty good, probably not as nice as the one here but I must say that it came pretty close. Of course, the one at that other place is double the price but then again, the serving is more or less double/triple the size as well and I like how they have the fish slices and a few prawns alongside the Chinese cabbage and bitter gourd and what not in that one there.

CHAMPION CORNER is located at the Fortune Commercial Centre (Lorong Chew Siik Hiong) in that same block of shops as the JIA JIA LOK FOOD CORNER (2.293336, 111.837017), right at the other end, facing the back of the Rejang Medical Centre along Jalan Pedada.

  1. Looks like it has quite a lot of ingredients for only RM5.

    Definitely a lot more than the regular Foochow fried noodles here, RM4.00 a plate. I don’t mind paying a bit more though if they could add a bit of squid and a couple of tiny prawns as well.

  2. For RM5 only, I think it is worth as it looks pretty good with so much “liao”.

    The price is right and it tasted great too. There are a lot of stuff priced RM8 and above these days and they are not even half as nice. 😦

  3. Wonder why people keep moving here and there. Maybe because of stall rental and business.

    Wat tan hor looked good.

    This isn’t too bad as it is still in the same shop. Can’t stand those who move from shop to shop and one would not know where they have gone to. 😦

  4. The place sure looks busy!

    Typical scene at most coffee shops in Sibu, morning right through till past lunchtime, the people spilling onto the road. This photo was taken early evening though, not that many people at the time actually.

  5. If me, I will sure tell them no bittergourd as I don’t take bittergourd…

    I know. Come to think of it, based on your photos in your blog, generally, I do not see you eating much vegetables at all.

  6. Eh, I’ve not seen bittergourd in wat tan hor before. Is it common in Sibu? Or only in that particular place?

    This one only, only a few very very thin slices…and I am sure it is only because they serve that bitter gourd bihun there so they have that vegetable at hand.It sure helps add colour to the dish.
