Find you…

We went back here for the beef noodles recently even though I was avoiding the place after some unpleasant experiences but like it or not, this is one of the better places in town for that. It was still good but we felt that the quality had dropped a little – it certainly used to be a whole lot better.

The one here has moved some place else and this one did not really tickle my fancy all that much…and this one that goes back a long long way doesn’t get me all that excited either.

I tried the new food court in town where there is a beef noodle stall but the somewhat unenthusiastic young boy there just said that he was not ready to start for the day and it was already way past 7, almost 8.

In the end, I decided to go someplace else and ended up here…

Sibu Cafe

I was there in 2016 and had their beef noodles from this stall there…

…but it was not the clear soup type, more like what they call the Taiwan-style with the soup a shade of brown…and let’s just say that given a choice, I would not pick that one.

Since I was going round hoping to find some really good beef noodles in town, I had their beef noodles…

Beef noodles 1

…again that day, still RM7.00 a bowl but I asked for the RM10.00 one…

Beef noodles 2

…with the extra beef and tripe.The soup was nice but I did not think it was all that strong with the beef flavour, the meat was tender and so was the tripe though I would prefer it sliced a little bit more thinly.

However, if it is beef noodles done this way, my favourite would be the one here but we have not been there for a long time so I am not sure if they are still there – it did move around quite a bit and led us on a wild goose chase.

As I was leaving, I saw somebody having the chai thow koi (fried carrot cake) or koey kah and it looked very good. Perhaps I shall come back another day to try that!
