Said I would…

I said I would come back here to try the fried noodles and I did – the other day when my friend/ex-student, Louis, was in town on a work-related trip.

The last time I saw him was in February when we went for that lady’s kampua mee, my favourite in town. Incidentally, I did drive past there to see but no, there was still no sign of her. Anyway, Louis is now residing with his family in Kuching and of course, all this while, he was not able to come back to Sibu until now and even then, the airfare sure was not cheap – over RM500 return, Kuching -Sibu.

Louis saw my post on the kampua mee that I had that day and he said he would like to drop by there and try. His office was on the 1st floor next door when he was still single and working in Sibu and that was exactly what he had that morning…

A-Plus kampua special

…and yes, he enjoyed it, of course!

I had the Foochow fried noodles, the moon version…

A-Plus fried mee, moon

…and yes, it was very nice. I think that would be RM5.00 a plate and RM6.00, if you ask for the special. As I was leaving, I saw the boss frying a plate of tomato kway teow, special and it looked very good too. Now that would be what I would have the next time I drop by here.

Thank you so much for the breakfast treat, Louis. We’ll do it again the next time you’re in town – my treat, of course!

  1. So nice of Louis to give you a treat! All the noodles look yummy!

    Yes, we do keep in touch all the time and get to meet once in a while.

  2. Tomato kway teow? I wonder what it will look like? A lot of tomato slices? 😀

    No, it’s with a bit of tomato sauce, a Kuching dish, slowly catching on here too.

  3. Both plates of noodles looks great. I hope they will be more generous with the greens in the Foochow fried noodles.

    Yes, I’d like that too.

  4. The Kampua noodles is still top on my list if I were to go Sibu again.. everyday Kampua! hahahaa..

    Come! Come! All the kampua you can eat! I’ll be right here waiting!

  5. an ex-student turned into a friend is one of the enduring rewards of being a great teacher :)))

    Yes, some do stay in touch, a few, at least – the makings of a lasting friendship.

    1. I just had a big bowl of Japanese ramen. LOL!

      I’ve yet to come across a good one here, not that we’ve that many, just two franchises and a couple of local Japanese wannabes.

  6. Is the moon version the one where they break a raw egg on top?

    No, it’s a word in one Chinese dialect meaning “braised” – you fry the noodles and later when the gravy/sauce is done, you put the noodles back in for a bit. The timing is crucial – must not be too long or the noodles will be soggy.
