Where I’ve been…

Since we got back from Miri that day, I’ve been here and there but not anywhere new, just some places that I’ve been to before.

I took my girl here for the roti bom (RM1.50)…

…that I enjoyed a lot but she did not like it at all – she wasn’t fond of it being oily as there was margarine inside nor did she like it sweet with the sugar added either. If I am not wrong, the stall has since closed down and I’m not surprised as it seemed that the guy would come rather late to set up his stall, not something to be desired if you want to go into the food business.

My missus had their mee pok, regular (RM4.00)…

…and she liked it and I tried their mee jawa with sambal sotong (RM8.00)…

…and yes, that was very good too. I sure would not mind going back for more of it. The coffee shop and kueh sections of the place are still going strong, only the roti canai stall had gone missing in action and I saw a FOR RENT sign there that day.

We also went for the beef noodles (RM8.50)…

here and yes, it was very good. My missus declared that it was nicer than what we had in Miri but I wouldn’t go that far – I would just say that they were both good.

My girl wanted to try their sui jiao/meat dumplings (RM6.00 for 6)…

…so I ordered those and yes, she loved them so much that one night after attending some church service, when we felt like going for a little something for supper, she wanted to go back here for more of those.

This time around, I tried their beef noodles, dry (RM8.50)…

…with their special own-made noodles and I quite enjoyed it, just that I felt the soup version was nicer. There was a hint of ginger in the sauce and like the duck mee that I had in Kuching, that did not quite tickle my fancy.

The photograph did not come out that nice in the florescent light but my missus’ kampua mee (RM3.50)…

…did not look too bad in the snapshot and yes, it was pretty good as well!

On another night, my girl had to attend the wedding dinner of her colleague’s daughter at a leading hotel in town so I dropped her off there and went here to sit and chat and wait for her.

Peter, the boss, made some ikan bilis green chili sambal

Payung ulam

…so he gave me some to ulam with cucumber strips and ulam raja. The new Indian chef made some dhall dip and I got a bit of that to try as well.

All this while, I was thinking that they only had beef spaghetti bolognese and having found out quite recently that they had their carbonara selections, chicken and mushroom…

…too, I ordered the latter (RM16.00)…

…to try that night and I loved it! It was not overly rich and creamy, good till the last bite!

Well, I’ve been to other places too but I guess I will just leave them till a later date.

  1. Of all the tasty food in this post, it is mee jawa for me. Ah, so nice to hang out at Payung while waiting for Melissa.

    Yes, very convenient – the hotel/venue was right at the back and my girl’s school is round the corner so I would hang around here to wait for her as and when necessary. The mee jawa is a good pick, very nice.

  2. All looks pretty nice. I will go for the soup beef noodle and kampua.

    All good except the beef noodles, dry – not to my liking and the roti bom was nicer the first time I had it. My girl was so disappointed.

  3. it looks like you and your family have been eating up a storm as the old year ends and the new one begins! i want everything in this post! 😀

    When are you coming? I’m so excited! A blogger friend is coming this weekend and she’s bringing 2 food writers, 2 in the food business and 1 in the hotel line!!! Looking forward to it!

  4. Same as mun, i like the mee jawa the most!

    This was very nice. We do have some good ones around here, not a problem looking for good mee jawa..

  5. The mushroom carbonara indeed look enticing in the photo.

    So you wait for Melissa there while she finished her dinner??

    Yes, just sat and chit-chatted with the boss and friends there. Nice people, they do not mind one bit that I always drop by to hang around while waiting for my girl. More in tomorrow’s post!
