Right place, right time…

We dropped by here…

Payung decor

…that day – it needs no introduction, of that I am pretty sure – because I had something to discuss with Peter, the boss. He was busy cooking something and I could detect the wonderful fragrance from the road outside.

Well, since we were there, we decided we would just have our lunch so we promptly placed our orders. My girl wanted her favourite, the lamb masala (RM19.00, with rice)…

…and for something a little stronger and spicier, I had their lamb curry (RM19.00, with rice)…

…while my missus had their butter chicken (RM18.00 with rice)…

She used to go for their kacang ma chicken each and every time we ate here but not this round nor the previous time. It sure looked like she now had a new-found love.

I also ordered their pomelo salad (RM8.00) for want of a vegetable dish and in the meantime, we were served this jug of unadulterated/undiluted coconut water…

…on the house. It seemed that Peter had asked Ah Peng, one of the nice guys here, to cut two for us.

Talk about being at the right place and the right time, Peter served us a big bowl of what he was cooking…

Peter's curry lemak

…to try – this very lovely extra-lemak chicken curry which was something like the ayam masak lemak cili padi but he used the product-of-England curry powder instead of serbuk kunyit (turmeric powder) and he did not make it too spicy hot because some of his staff were not thus inclined.

We sure enjoyed that and I did tell Peter that he could put that on his menu – I am sure many would like that too. That sure was a nice lunch…but then again, I would say the same each and every time we drop by here for a meal.

PAYUNG CAFÉ (2.284049, 111.833014) is located at No.20F, Lanang Road, Sibu, Malaysia, back to back with the multi-storey car park of the Kingwood Hotel which faces the majestic Rejang River.

Ancient relic but very young at heart. Enjoys food and cooking...and travelling and being with friends.

  1. Kacangma for me, pls.. Oh my, the undiluted coconut water, so nice and refreshing to quench my thirst especially during hot weather like these days. I remember the product-of-England curry powder in bottle which we use in our early days. I guess they are not cheap now.

    Not too sure. Saw it at a supermarket, didn’t take note of the price.

  2. Ah, your missus finally ate something different. LOL!

    If I remember correctly, she also had this on our last visit – hopefully, she will pick something else the next time we drop by here.
