Right and left…

Last Friday, we drove to my girl’s school in the jungle as usual to bring her home for the weekend, followed by the week-long school break. We gave her colleague a lift and dropped her off at the airport for her flight home to Kuching and after that, we headed to the area of shops round the corner from our house and stopped here

Sugar Bun@Pedada

…for a quick lunch.

Normally, we would go straight home and I would hit the sack while the ladies would go out on their own to buy my girl’s weekly rations and supplies. That day, we had some business to deal with at the bank located at the other end of the same block of shops, on the left so this, an outlet of our very own Sarawak fast food franchise…

At Sugar Bun@Pedada

…on the right was a very convenient stop for us to grab a quick bite for our very late lunch – it was past 2.00 p.m. by then.

It being the season of Lent and our no-meat Friday, we would have very limited choices at most other franchises but not here. I love their Assam Fish and their Fish Burger/Sandwich and I would give them the double thumbs up for not using the Dory which is not to my liking as the texture and taste kind of put me off or worse, at times, it may be jelly-like and has an unpleasant smell.

They use the New Zealand Hoki here which we do like a lot but that day, my girl did not feel like having the sandwich/burger so she had it with chips (RM12.90)…

Sugar Bun fish & chips

She could not have it with their very nice special rice as there would be bits of sausages in that. Her mum also went for the same but I decided to go for their sambal eco fish (RM14.90)…

Sugar Bun sambal-eco fish

…one of my favourites here and I had not had that for quite sometime now. Just like the Assam Fish, they use the tilapia from Batang Ai, so fresh that at times, they are even delivered alive! The sambal was at best, o.k. and as expected for a place like this, it was not spicy and I wished they had some cut fresh chilies in the soy sauce – they had that in the photograph in the above display on the wall. Thankfully, the fish was great and I liked the pickled cucumber too so I would say that I did quite enjoy the meal.

If it had not been a Friday, there would be other rice sets to pick from – my missus had the chicken curry the last time and one of my girl’s colleagues would stick faithfully to their claypot mushroom chicken and I hear the beef stew is good too.

SUGAR BUN@PEDADA, the Delta Mall outlet (2.310929, 111.846391), is located facing Jalan Pedada, now Jalan Datuk Wong Soon Kai, in the block of shops on the left – ASTRO Sibu is the first shop in the block on the right.

  1. I think they open up an outlet near evolve mall . Haven’t try it yet. The last we had was at kk.

    Not sure exactly where it is in KL but a few bloggers have blogged about it.

  2. We have a sugar bun in KL too and they even have garupa fish noodle, not too shabby actually.

    Yes, we have that at another outlet here, not this one. Tried it before, was o.k. A lot of soup, not much ingredients but as long as it is not Dory, I like!

  3. Definitely, I prefer our own Sarawak fast food franchise, Sugar Bun to KFC. You have made a great choice and that is my favourite too. Their beef stew is nice too.

    Oh? Gotta go and try the beef stew soon then. Looks good in the photo but of course, those things can’t be trusted. LOL!!!

  4. Yumny lunch. I love its sambal eco tilapia fish.

    I also dropped by the outlet over here last Wednesday. It has been a while since we had its food.

    So what did you have there? So far, my favourites would be the fish burger and the asam fish.

    1. I went for its savoury rice and chicken set. Long time didnt have it, felt so satisfying after finished my lunch. Lol.

      Yes, my girl loves their savoury rice. Could not eat that that day as it was our no-meat Friday. I like their broasted chicken too, not oily.

  5. Oh! I like the look of the fried fish that you had. That’s something I would really enjoy!

    I like it too, no fishy smell, texture is nice too, anytime nicer than Dory.

  6. gosh, i actually visited batang ai once – almost 20 years ago, for work. i didn’t eat any fish there, but maybe i should have 🙂

    I was there in the 90’s – they did not have this fish project there then and there wasn’t any resort there either – dunno if Hilton still runs that place.

  7. I miss eating sugarbun in Borneo! Back in high school, I eat sugarbun on a daily basis – their RM2 chicken burger!

    RM2? Dunno how much it costs now, not really into burgers.

  8. I heard a good few people this year are giving up plastic for lent this year. Sounds like a worthy thing to do.

    That’s good. Should try and give it up for good.

  9. Sounds like a nice place for a good meal.

    Not that cheap, not like at a coffee shop, these franchise places but nicer, more comfortable and you can enjoy a nice, quick meal though most young people would go to such places to loiter around to pass the time.
