Nothin’ new…

No, there’s nothing new in this post and as a matter of fact, we were here in early June when my Kuching cousins and friend and her family came to town. Our friend’s mum (and children), like many others before them, loved the food so much that they kept wanting to come back for another round before leaving town but there were other plans and they never did come back again. I guess that will have till their next trip to Sibu whenever that may be.

Well, that day, my girl asked to go there for the bitter gourd that is now the favourite of many and we decided to have it fried with the three types of eggs…

– fresh egg, salted egg and century egg. Normally, we would have it with salted egg but I guess it is high time we have it a little different for a change…and yes, it was very good too!

This is currently one of our favourite dishes here – their salted egg spare ribs…

…and I so loved the curry leaves that seemed kind of crispy – I wonder if they deep-fried them or something.

My girl said she would love the Thai-style mango chicken…

…and it was really very nice that day. For one thing, the mango was very sweet – I probably would not enjoy it as much if it had been sour. Fat people don’t like sour things. Hehehehehe!!!

All in all, the bill came up to RM38.00 for the food – I did not ask for servings for 2 as I was quite hungry when we got there that day. Anyway, the nice boss gave us a discount of RM2.00, so it was RM36.00 altogether.

Business was pretty good and there were quite a lot of people that afternoon which is good – these days, I get quite worried at places where there are very few customers as the way things are going, I would not know how long they would be able to stay in business.Needless to say, as far as this place is concerned, we will most certainly be coming back again…and again…and again!

RUBY RESTAURANT  is located at No. 71, Jalan Kampung Nyabor right next to HOME COOK CORNER  (2.292756, 111.825335) with the AmBank Tunku Osman branch in the very next block.

  1. Must be very tasty with all the 3 types of eggs. Price is so good for tasty food so I am sure that they will last.

    At one time, it was pretty quiet – I think its cheaper prices are bringing the crowd back, plus the dishes are all very nice. Other places, it may go up to RM50-60. With the crowd, turnover will be higher but of course, they will have to work a little bit harder, more to cook and serve and clean and wash.

  2. Love all the 3 dishes especially the bitter gourd fried with 3 types of eggs. They will survive if the food is consistently good.

    That’s for sure, always good for so many many years now – the lady boss herself does the cooking but they do not a very wide range to choose from, or not that I know of, that is.

  3. Despite liking bitter I still have not found a great fondness for bitter gourd. More palatable with egg though I bet.

    These days, it is not bitter at all so when cooked right, not overdone, it is crunchy, very nice. I like it bitter though – somehow I feel that when it is not, it loses its health benefits. Medicine has got to be bitter.

  4. Mostly bitter gourd with fresh egg and salted egg yolk. Never with century egg. But bitter gourd does tasted so good with salted egg, as balance the bitterness in it. My favourite veggie too.

    Salted egg spare ribs? That I have yet to try.

    We love it very much so we will surely want to order when we drop by here. My girl’s favourite, their bitter gourd – nicer than all elsewhere, she says…and if we compare, this whole meal with dishes for three costs less than that one plate of grilled salmon that my girl had in my previous post. Sure makes a whole lot of “sens” going for something like this instead, eh?

  5. I would enjoy all those three dishes. Some dishes are so good that they warrant repeat orders.

    Yes, we had other favourites but right now, we would go for the newer items on their menu for a change…unlike some other restaurants – you get to eat the same things day in and day out – the menu never changes or nothing new is added so you get bored after sometime, never mind how nice.

  6. The dishes looks so good and the pricing is even better!! Can go back again and again to this shop!

    We most certainly will. If I remember correctly, you all came here when you were in Sibu and you liked it!

    Actually if we buy one chicken thigh, pork ribs, bitter gourd and the three types of eggs, I am sure that will come to around RM20-30 already…plus a mango which is VERY expensive here, probably cheap over at your side, closer to Thailand…so all in all, it is worth it and you do not have to sweat it out in the kitchen.

  7. The bitter gourd with 3 types of eggs look very interesting. Need to try frying it that way one of these days.

    It’s very popular at Chinese restaurants here. I think they fry other vegetables this same way too.
