It certainly looks like we are not alone – going for dinner/supper after the novena and sunset service on Saturday evenings at the church that we frequent here. Everytime we did that, wherever we went after the service, we would notice that there would be others who were in church earlier there as well…and last Saturday night was no exception.
We had not been here for a while now, my Dad’s favourite when he was still around and that night, my girl wanted their lemon chicken…
…which she feels is second to none here in Sibu compared to the ones that we had had elsewhere.
We wanted another meat dish so we had the kiam sor (salty and crispy/crusty) pork ribs…
…and yes, it was very good too.
The bitter gourd omelette…
…was all right and we would rank their tauhu tear, the Foochow-style tofu soup with canned oysters…
…among the best in town. Some do not taste anything like the authentic thing, more like shark’s fins soup with the bean curd and the oysters added.
The total for the four dishes was RM54.00 which I thought was very reasonable but my missus kept looking at the Foochow fried noodles that they were having at the other tables – my Dad loved the one here the most and would order that everytime he came here and at other times, he would come and buy it home and since she seemed to be craving for it and kept saying how good it looked, I ordered a plate with a special request for added char siew (RM5.50)…
…to share so that brought the total up to RM59.50. It sure looked like the prices of the noodles had gone up by 50 sen. Well, this place was never known to be cheap and a plate of noodles was already RM4.00 a plate when others were charging RM3.50-3.80…and now it is RM5.00, throw in another 50 sen if you want the char siew.
Together with the rice and drinks, the total altogether was RM70.90 but of course, what mattered most was how my girl enjoyed everything that night – it certainly was a worthwhile treat for her, coming home from her school in the jungle for the weekend, food therapy at its best!
Y2K CAFE (2.294220, 111.825753) is located in the Tunku Osman area, round the corner from that block of shops where the branches of AmBank & RHB Bank are located. with its back entrance facing the side (right, not the main one) entrance/exit of Methodist Secondary School

Sometimes I don’t mind spending more on good food, like you said food therapy, while spending lesser on other material things
Me too. When the food is no good, we will feel sad and disappointed, not worth the effort of going to eat, even if it is cheap!
All the food looks great and to my liking. I won’t mind to pay a bit more if the food is good and to ones’ satisfaction.
No point if it is cheap and not nice.
I love kiam sor pork. Very appetizing and I couldn’t get enough of them. Lemon chicken did looked yummy.
Foochow soup with the oysters is definitely a Sibu dish. Hardly can find any place else.
My aunt in Kuching will buy half a dozen cans of the oysters back when she comes – can’t buy in Kuching.
The fresh citrus on top makes the first dish look instantly appealing.
I guess that is an indication that fresh lemon juice is used in the cooking.
That appears to be a very good and fulfilling dinner. I am also a fan of lemon chicken, provided that real lemon is used.
I guess they do here, we could taste it but I am not crazy about that yellow colour. Colouring perhaps – egg yellow, I used that before with my ghee rice, no taste nor smell.
the preparations here actually look quite interesting to me. the lemon chicken seems to come in a richer sauce than what we’re used to …. and it’s soaked in so much sauce on the plate that you could actually enjoy a few spoonfuls of the sauce on its own, like eating honey 😀 i also like how they’re very generous with the thick chunks of bitter gourd in the omelette 😀
Actually, I was thinking that they could have sliced the bitter gourd a little thinly, so thick! As for the sauce, I would prefer it to be of a pale colour – I dunno how they get it to be so yellow, colouring perhaps, not kunyit, that’s for sure, but thankfully, no essence smell either otherwise I would have given it the thumbs down.
