Big brother…

I met a friend, also my ex-student/colleague, a while ago and he asked me to drop by here…

11 Cafe

…across the road from the medical centre…

KPJ Sibu Medical Centre

…to try his brother’s kampua mee

I remember he told me about him once when he was at a different place (that goes by a different name now) at the time but when I went there, he had moved elsewhere so I did not get the chance to try.

Well, he’s here now…

11 Cafe kampua mee stall

…his kampua mee stall right next to the Muslim/halal stall, something you would only get to see here among our multi-racial community but it seemed to me that the latter does not open that early – they came past 8.00 a.m. when I was about to leave and started getting ready for the day.

The coffee (RM1.60)…

…was so-so, more or less like most of the rest and definitely not the best there is around but yes, the kampua mee (RM3.00)…

…was very nice, not soft or overcooked and soggy like some around town, very chewy and springy and to my liking though I would not mind a little less of the noodles…

There was so much of it that it was quite a struggle for me to finish especially when I had ordered a bowl of pian sip (meat dumplings) soup (RM3.00)…

…to try and yes, that…

…was very good too.

This place used to go by a different name and I did try the kampua mee here then and the one I had then was good as well. They were telling me once that the food from the chu char (cook and fry) place at the back was very nice and very cheap too but I never did manage to stop by and try – I am not sure if they have the same people there now or whether there is a chu char place at all even.

11 CAFE (2.300145, 111.833018) is located along Jalan Oya in the block of shops across the road from the KPJ Sibu Specialist Medical Centre. The Sibu Polyclinic is a short distance to the right if you are coming out from this place to the main road.
