I happened to be in the vicinity of the shops in this housing area opposite the Sibu General Hospital the other morning but no, I did not want to go back to the same coffee shop that I went to the last time. Instead, I decided to check out one of the many others there and in the end, I picked this one…

Pau's Cafe, Permai

I guess it belongs to somebody with the surname Pau and did not derive its name from the fact that they do sell a lot of paus (steamed buns) there.

I decided to try something different from the kampua mee stall…

…there and ordered their tang hoon (glass noodles) special (RM5.00)…

Pau's Cafe tang hoon special

I liked the mild clear soup, no vinegar, no traditional Foochow red wine but I was wishing that they would give some special dip instead of the bottled chili sauce that I got. They gave two of everything – the intestines, the liver and the beef tripe other than the fish balls, tofu puffs and some green vegetables.

My girl would probably love it as she has this thing for glass noodles. As for me, I would just say that it was all right, something different for a change.

PAU’S CAFE (2.298564, 111.893951) is located among the shops opposite the Pasar Tani Permai to the left of Jalan Permai as you turn in from Jalan Ulu Oya, a little to the right of the Sibu General Hospital.

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

  1. I would probably love it too as I like glass noodles, being it cooked in soup or fried. I can eat just like this without having it with rice.

    My girl loves it, must have that when we have steamboat. I like it with fish balls soup.

  2. This somehow reminds me of NBA player Pau Gasol.. not related :/

    Oh? Dunno him, not really into sports. Most familiar with anything food-related only…but I do know Pau Ching Thian! LOL!!!

  3. I love trying new places.

    That’s what I do…except for a few regular favourites. Who knows there may be some hidden treasures yet to be discovered.
