I can remember…

I can remember this place…

Ah Ping Cafe

…as clear as day as I did drop by here a few times before and I do remember also that I liked the fried kway teow (flat rice noodles) from the chu char (cook & fry) place at the back.  I used to teach one class at a tuition centre in the vicinity and other than coming here to eat, I did tapao home a number of times – it seemed that it is open all day unlike many places that open till noon and they may or may not open again come evening time.

Well, it so happened that I was around that part of town the other morning so I decided to go and try their Foochow fried noodles, wet/with sauce or gravy (RM4.00)…

…instead of going for the kway teow, for a change.

It did not look that great initially. I thought it was rather dark, a lot darker than usual but when I had tossed the noodles with the sauce/gravy…

…it sure looked very good and it tasted great too…

…and what I liked was they were quite generous with the ingredients – there were quite a lot of meat (though that looked like chicken) and green vegetables unlike at a lot of places around here. I sure wouldn’t mind having that again if ever I happen to be around here.

The kopi-o-peng (iced coffee, black) that I had that morning was good too and it was only RM1.50 a glass, a lot cheaper than a lot of places around here…and yes, I did try the kampua mee stall here too before, long ago, but it looked like somebody else is running it now, a guy. There used to be a woman here…and that morning, I noticed that a lot of people were ordering from him.

I spotted an ex-student from an earlier former school where I taught here – she goes to the same church so I would get to see her quite often. She and her family members were having the kampua mee, red in colour probably due to the char siew sauce added. I asked her if it was any good and she said yes. “I am here almost every day,” she added. I sure would want to go back there and give it a try one of these days.

AH PING CAFE is located in the vicinity of the Dewan Suarah, Sibu right across the lane from AROMA BAKERY (2.311151, 111.831515) after the Maju Tyre shop at No. 36 (G/F), Taman Damai along Jalan Dewan Suarah.

  1. The Foochow fried noodles looks pretty good to me too. So generous with the greens which is hard to come by these days.

    Yes, I love it when they add a lot of those greens. Not that expensive so I see no reason why they should add so little, might as well don;t add at all.

  2. I like a generosity in ingredients other than the noodles too.

    Yes, otherwise it’s all carbs – one will feel full and energetic owing to the sugar rush but will get hungry real fast.

  3. It’s amazing what a good toss can do to the appearance of the noodles. The red sauce kampua mee, I have seen it before at the now closed SRK Noodle House.

    Oh? It has closed? No business? I’m not all that fond of it red, the char siew makes the noodles kind of sweet.
