Private party…

This used to be here but they have renovated and refurbished the place, rebranding it and giving it a new name…

Simply Delicious

…so last Saturday evening, we decided to hop over and check it out – it is located at the mall round the corner from our house. Unfortunately, they were having a private party that night – their annual dinner for their staff and it looked like there was some kind of opening ceremony going on as well so it was not open to the public.

We did not have any other choice but to go elsewhere and my girl wanted to go here for her favourite mutton biryani (RM21.00)…

…so of course, her wish was my command. Needless to say, as always, she enjoyed it to the max and was obviously very happy after that scrumptious dinner.

The mum had the kalio ayam (RM14.50) again – no, I did not bother to snap a photo of it as the place was kind of dim at night and besides, that was what she would have every other time we were here and I have had a lot of photos of it already in my previous blogposts…and of course, as always, she could only manage one of the two huge chunks of chicken in the set so I had to help her with the other one.

I had the opor ayam (RM14.50)…

…which was very good, something like our ayam masak kurma, and there were two huge chunks of chicken in the bowl as well as some potatoes and one hardboiled egg.

The total came up to RM60.50 so I paid RM61.00, cash but the generous boss gave me back a RM5.00 note as a discount for the iced water that we had – he was not going to charge us for it. I must say that was a very nice gesture compared to those places where they would insist on you digging out all your small change to pay for what is on the bill…or they will willingly give you back RM49.90 for your RM100.00 (because you do not have anything smaller) when the bill is RM50.10…and especially when it is some poker-faced boss himself or herself that one is dealing with, I certainly would think twice about going back again, that’s for sure, never mind how good the food is.

CAFE IND (2.290813, 111.829294) is located along Laichee Lane, right behind one block of shops facing the main road (Jalan Kampung Nyabor) where the Bank Simpanan Nasional, Sibu branch (2.290561, 111.829071), is located.

  1. Mutton biryani is very tasty so I can understand why Melissa likes it. The hardboiled egg in the opor ayam dish looks good too.

    The food here is good all round – the only problem is we’ve tried them all so whenever we go, we will stick to our favourites and that leaves me with nothing to blog about.

  2. Both dishes looks nice. Glad everyone goes back with happy tummy. That little gestures goes a long way.

    Indeed! Sad that the “younger” ones do not seem to realise it. The old folks would say, “Bay hiao cho seng li!” (Don’t know how to do business)

  3. That has happened to me before, going somewhere and looking forwards to the food and finding that they are closed for private function 😦 Well, your alternative venue did not disappoint.

    Yes, always good here…but we are down to the same ol’ dishes mostly everytime we come here.
