We takin’ over…

There used to be a sports shop here but this coffee shop…

Cafe 63
*I wonder if that car will have to put two parking tickets for occupying two spaces*

…has taken over the place, to the left of this dessert shop and bakery…

Blackball & Big Thumb
*They sure have very wide parking spaces in this area – side parking would be a breeze*

I don’t know why it is thus named – maybe that’s the number of the shop and yes, this is in the congested part of town and parking in the vicinity can be such a pain but if you are willing to park some distance away and walk, you may be able to find a space.

I dropped by early one morning to check out the place. There is a kampua mee stall in front and this Muslim/halal stall with the pork and whatever rice stall on the left and a beef noodle, kueh chap and porridge stall on the right…

– only in Sarawak/Sibu can you see this close integration of races/religions.

I was in the mood for some Foochow fried noodles…

…so I proceeded to the stall at the back, run by a very nice chatty couple…

*Oopsss!!! Do excuse the pencemaran bahasa/spelling error!*

…and placed my order.

I asked if they had any special, something with added ingredients but they said no unless I would want to go for their giant prawn noodles, around RM60.00 a plate. Hmmm…no, thank you.

In the end, I just settled for the regular…

…and a glass of kopi-o-peng (iced black coffee) to go with it. The coffee was RM1.70, cheaper than some places, more expensive than others but most importantly, I thought it was very nice.

As for the noodles…

…that plate was RM4.50 – I think it is RM4.00 at most places here but this one had a lot of ingredients unlike others that may just have some bits of meat and green vegetables, barely visible to the naked eye plus the portion did seem to be a little bit more substantial than most of the rest. Yes, it was very nice and had that very much coveted wok hei fragrance and I sure would not mind dropping by for it again…if I can find a place to park the car, that is.

CAFE 63 (2.293970, 111.826350) is located at Jalan Tunku Osman, to the left of Blackball and Big Thumb.

  1. Parking is a big factor but if food is good, I don’t mind walk a little bit. Geez, how I hate people double parking. The car too big to park in one space!

    Maybe they are thinking, early weekend morning, nobody, lots of spaces so just chin-chai park…or perhaps it was somebody delivering something.

    However, if they were customers going to the coffee shop to eat, that was really very selfish! Other people also want to park right in front of the shop like that – no doubt there were spaces but I had to park a short distance away, so early in the morning, 7 something, already quite a number of cars.

  2. I don’t mind to pay a bit more if it has a lot of ingredients…

    Yes, me too! Some places, you pay more and they will add extras like liver, intestines, sotong and (small sea) prawns.

  3. The Foochow fried noodles looks good with lots of ingredients. RM4.50 is reasonable.

    I had very very nice Foochow fried noodles at Mekong, RM4.50 in 2010…
    …and they had prawns!!! At that time, I think it was RM3.00 or RM3.50 here, not much ingredient, very kesian one.
    I hear they have moved, the coffee shop – now opposite, beside Heritage/Hidden Treasures.

  4. The parking space is so wide and if one drives a small car, parking would be a breeze. Yeah, that car occupying two spaces, I’ve seen it over here too. So inconsiderate.

    A dime a dozen – such people are everywhere. Then there are lots who will park their vehicles anywhere illegally, never mind that they are blocking some other people…or half the road and obstructing the smooth flow of traffic. Pisses me off all the time!
