Through thick and thin…

The other day, I blogged about the very nice fish (and egg) burger from that Sibu’s own franchise which was so nice that I did buy some more a second time when I saw it again.

Well, I was at my neighbourhood shop and I saw these (4 for RM2.00)…

4 for RM2.00

Yes, I did mention before that they now make their own chu nu miang, the softer and very lightly sweet version of our Foochow bagel, the kompia. I was saying that there is no way they would be able to slice the regular ones to make burgers – those have become SO very small and SO thin, unlike these. Of course they are 3 for RM1.00, almost 4o sen each (kompia is now 2 for RM1.00 at some places) but I would much sooner pay around 10 sen more for these bigger and thicker ones…

Bigger & thicker

You can pop it in the oven for a bit if you like it a little bit crusty on top. That was exactly what I did that day and after slicing it into halves, I placed a slice of butter and salami, pre-grilled in a non-stick pan, in it…

I don’t know where my girl bought these that I found in the freezer but they’re just the right size for the chu nu miang and I must say I enjoyed it to the max. Very very nice! Of course I could have added a slice of omelette or tomato or a piece of lettuce, all of which would be very nice too, I’m sure. The possibilities are endless!!!

I also tried it with butter and peanut butter…

…and yes, that was good as well!

A loaf of bread is around RM3.00 these days, RM4.00 wholemeal and we’re not really into it unless somebody takes it to make some gourmet sandwiches or French toast and by the time we’re halfway through, it would have gone mouldy. It sure makes a lot more sense to buy two packets of these instead, gone in no time at all.

  1. He eat one loaf of wholemeal each week. Whereas I eat sprouted multigrain rainbow bread meant for diabetic people. How does chu nu miang taste like? Is it just like a soft bun, like those paong buns? Yes, since you all do not need to eat healthy wholemeal bread or buns, can just buy 2 packs of these chu nu miang to eat. Very Tasty the way u put salami and cheese.

    My sister will buy wholemeal, she seems to enjoy it, dunno if she has any reason to do so. I don’t mind plain sandwich bread but a loaf is too much for us – we’re not really into bread. They used to sell half a loaf but I do not see that anymore. I love the butter bread at a bakery here but it does not come cheap, RM4.50 for a small loaf, bigger than a bun. No, chu nu miang is not like those roti paong – it has a dense texture but is cushiony soft, just slightly sweet but can be eaten on its own, nice too like that.

  2. I remember last time the chu nu miang looks very thin and firm unlike the one as shown above. The one in the pix looks exactly like burger buns. I used to like eating chu nu miang on its own. It has a sweet taste.

    It used to be like that but that was a long long time ago, now smaller than the palm of my hand and very thin, so not so cushiony soft. Not so nice.

  3. The buns looks good, just the right size for a meal. I am sure they don’t have these over here except for burger buns… anyway, I haven’t buy burger buns before so I never look into that corner… 🙂

    Yes, I never look at burger buns either, no intention of making our own burgers.

  4. I love chu nu miang more than kompia.
    By itself, is good enough for me. I got to taste it when my sil brought some back to Kapit last week.

    Me too and my family as well, we actually enjoy this more than the overrated kompia, a bit tough especially when cold, not all have that coveted fragrance…plus my favourite is now 2 for RM1.00 and it is getting smaller and smaller. Impossible to slice and stuff stewed pork belly inside.

  5. The buns looks good, just like a burger bun but they look fluffier and contain more moisture. Would love to add bak kuah into one. 😀

    I think I’ve done that before – may be in an earlier post.
