The best people in the world…

I am sure everyone would agree that…

People who love to eat...

…in the world!

This food court…

Food Bazaar 1

…is pretty new, located at the mega mall in town and I spotted that poster in one section of the place there…

…and of course, I couldn’t agree more!

We seldom venture there as we do not go out much on weekdays nor would we be keen on going out of our way but that day, we did not have a choice as we had to buy some things at their supermarket/departmental store. That was around lunch time so I suggested going to the food court to see if there was anything nice or not.

My missus had the bak kut teh, dry (RM12.00 plus RM1.20 for the rice)…

…from this stall…

…and she said it was nice.

I ordered the Bintangor rojak (RM8.00, medium)…

…from the stall next to it but no, though it was edible and the sauce was nicer than the one we had here, I would not say it was anything I would want to have again. Those crisps were so hard that my gums hurt when eating them and I could not figure out what they added as the topping in place of crushed groundnuts – it appeared like pop corn to me. No, it was definitely a far cry from the real thing.

I also went to have a look at the stall next to the rojak stall and I saw this durian mille crepe (RM15.00)…

Yes, I did think that the price was kind of shocking but I simply had to give it a try and thankfully, it was very nice…

…and had the taste and smell of fresh durian. Still, at that price, I certainly would not want to have that again.

I was intrigued by the sight of this…

…at that same stall but I failed to make head or tail of the lengthy explanation the guy gave to tell me what it was so I just ordered one to find out for myself and it turned out to be a matcha crepe roll (RM10.00)…

…with cream and something that looked like red bean inside. Of course, I did not fancy that – I am not fond of anything green tea and the smell was rather strong, and it was even a little bit bitter, at times.

My missus just had one kopi-o-peng (iced black coffee) from the beverages stall while I was a bit more adventurous and went to check out this one…

…and ordered the coconut shake…

…but it (RM6.00)…

…wasn’t great, not really thick, rich and creamy like a shake and I told my missus that it felt like I was drinking santan (coconut milk), straight. I would much sooner go for the one that I like very much here…or at the stall outside a house at Rejang Park (but it seems to be that they are no longer running the business there) and I was wondering the whole time if their ice cream was any better. Perhaps I’ll check it out next time.

I don’t know when I will go back to the mall again – it is always very crowded on weekends but when I do, I probably would want to venture to the food court again to see what else they have in store.

FOOD BAZAAR is the food court located in the Orange Zone at the Star Mega Mall (2.304917, 111.86407) along Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, the road leading to the Sibu Airport.
