Someplace nice…

That evening, after our pleasant stroll browsing around the stalls at the cultural festival, we went looking for someplace nice for dinner.

I asked my girl what she wanted and she said she wouldn’t mind the beef noodles (RM15.90)…

here and of course, whatever she wants, she will get and we dropped by the place for what I believe is called the ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเนื้อตุ๋น or the kuay teow neua with the pad thai kway teow-like noodles.

These…

…were served by the side for us to add as we choose and yes, my girl loved the noodles very much. There was enough for the three of us but of course, we let her have the lion’s share.

…was on the house, from my sweet and dear friend, Mary and her authentic Thai chefs and the crew, thank you so so much to all of them for the special treat and yes, we enjoyed that as well. I did try their tom yam fried rice sometime ago…

…and I did like that a lot as well but I have not had it since, not when there are so many things there to pick and choose and savour.

We ordered their oyster omelette (RM19.50)…

…to go with our noodles and of course, I singled out the big oysters one by one for my girl. I guess that is quite typical of all parents, saving the best for the children.

The som tam or papaya salad (RM15.50)…

…was exceptionally nice that night. Mary asked us if we wanted to try the Bangkok style which she said would be a little bit sweeter than the usual and of course, we did not mind it one bit and yes, it was very much to our liking.

That certainly was a delightful dinner and the nice cool environment certainly was a welcome change from the heat I had to put up with outside – it certainly has been very hot here lately.

FLAVOURS THAI KITCHEN (2.292836, 111.828287) is located on the ground floor of the ORCHID HOTEL, along Brooke Drive at its junction with Jalan Tunku Osman. You can use its main entrance at the back of the hotel building (facing Brooke Drive) or go through the lobby past the reception desk if you are using its hotel entrance.

  1. Other than payung, this is another tasty eatery in Sibu. Do they serve the red ruby dessert here?

    Unfortunately, no. I’ve always wanted to try that.

    1. Can ask Mary any particular reason why they don’t serve that? Because in kl most Thai restaurants serve this red ruby dessert.

      I did ask her before, can’t remember exactly what she said. I think she’s not a fan of it herself. They do have mango glutinous rice when the fruit is available – I love that!

  2. Though I am not much into Thai cuisine, I don’t mind a bit to try out everything as they all look so appetising. As for me, fried tom yam bihun and oyster omelette will make a great choice to have.

    I’m more into these strong exotic cuisines – in comparison, I find Chinese rather mild and unexciting…and worse, at many places, mostly msg…and oily too!

  3. Tom yam fried rice is a nice change from normal fried rice. Not a fan of papaya salad. I am not so into those sour salad or something alike. Haha.

    Oh? So you are not a fan of kerabu or acar? They’re all along those same lines.

  4. That beef noodle looks nice but prices are even more expensive than KL it seems? O.o

    Only two Thai restaurants here and this one’s in a hotel, fine linen and all…and not available in any coffee shop round town. Take it or leave it – the choice is yours.
