I’ve been here once before and had their kueh chap and the other day, we dropped by again for the Sarawak laksa as my paternal cousin did say it was good too.

That was on Friday and as usual, we went to get my girl from her school in the jungle to bring her home. She wanted to go for our favourite in town but I was not all that keen as I’ve blogged about it so many times already. Actually, we stopped by here first but all the stalls were closed, not a single one was open, even though it was just around 2.00 p.m. so we just walked to this place instead.

There is a Malay stall there now, right behind the kampua mee stall but no, we were there for the Sarawak laksa so that was what we had…

As it was on our no-meat Friday, we did not want any of the shredded boiled chicken and yes, the lady did seem to add a lot more of the rest unlike other places that I know. More often than not, it would be a case of if you don’t want it, then that is it!

The ladies had the small/regular (RM6.00) while I had the large (RM7.00) and I lived to regret it. No, it wasn’t because it was not nice but one bowl is approximately equal to two of the regular ones…

…and it was quite a struggle for me to finish all of it. Just like the kueh chap, I would say it was not the best in town, nor the worst and I would say that exact same thing too about their sambal belacan

Walking back to the car, I spotted this banner at a Malay coffee shop nearby…


What? RM2K for the winner? That’s more or less my one month’s pension! Gee!!! I wish I were younger – I certainly would give it my best shot. Anybody interested?

This coffee shop (2.290717, 111.822459) is located near the Sibu Town Square/Dataran Tun Tuanku Bujang at Jalan Lau King Howe Lorong 1, facing the Lau King Howe Memorial Museum which is on the opposite side of the road.
