The other day, my girl was called back to school because there were things to be done. Yes, if you’re one of those who think that teachers are so fortunate and get to stay home, shaking legs all this time, think again! Usually, they work from home but sometimes, they have to go back to answer their call of duty.

She will call me when she’s done and I will drive over to get her and bring her home. That is not a problem as Sibu is a very very small town – it will only take around 5-10 minutes and with the on-going MCO or CMCO, traffic is not all that heavy.

However, that day, my sister was in the vicinity and my girl contacted me to let me know that she would give her a ride home. What I did not know at the time was she told the aunt that she was thinking of having some sushi and the latter thought she might want these…


…for a change from the usual here or here.

These people have been around for a very long time now. They have a stall at the mall round the corner from my house ever since the mall opened for business, if I am not mistaken. I’ve never tried anything from them though but I think my girl and the mum did and I did not hear them complain. My guess is, therefore, what they dished out wasn’t too bad.

Now, their sushi and whatever else including those things wrapped in seaweed, whatever you call them, are available at a family mart in the block of shops on the way to my sister’s house, at Lorong Delta 4 where this hotel is located and where this coffee shop was at one time. Unfortunately, for reasons unknown, it was not open so the doting aunt went back there the following day to get her a pack…

Chao Da Roll

…and send it to the house.

I am not sure but I think this is their chao da (burnt) roll. While my girl was enjoying it, she did mention that the imitation crab stick was lightly burnt on the  outside. Ah well!!! Everybody is so into burnt cheesecake these days so what’s stopping them from burning more stuff to eat? LOL!!! I checked the menu on their Facebook page and I must say that at RM12.00 something for 8, they sure do not come cheap – for two of those, you can have a more filling and more satisfying plate of kampua mee.

Moving on from there, one morning, I was rummaging through the fridge and I saw a bit of the brown rice noodles that we had and a bit of some buckwheat noodles that my girl did try that day with the salad to see if it was compatible or not. The sum of the two would be enough for one plate of noodles so I took them and fried them char kway teow style…

Fried brown rice & buckwheat noodles

…with some chopped garlic in a bit of oil, two prawns, soy sauce according to taste and some of my missus’ pounded chili dip, taugeh (bean sprouts) and egg, served garnished with a sprinkling of chopped daun sup (Chinese celery).

My! My! That sure was as good as it looked and I enjoyed it very much! I wouldn’t mind frying noodles this same way again, you can take my word for it.

8 thoughts on “Sushi…”

  1. A bit of everything, this and that makes that char kway teow of yours looks really good. Nothing is wasted and you get to enjoy something nice for breakfast. In another words, you help to clear things that has been sitting in the pantry or fridge for too long. Win win situation….😄😄😄

    Yes, have to do that all the time or it is a sheer case of sikit sikit jadi bukit, so many things in the fridge, no space to put anything more. Sometimes, I would just take and throw away.

  2. Sushi and your noodles are fine with me, I like both and the price is reasonable. If this is served in Japanese restaurant, the price will be double! Oh by the way, I saw Jaya Grocer in Ipoh is selling Daddy instant noodles, the ones you used to put up… no, I did not buy them yesterday… I still have instant noodles in my pantry!

    Oh? They have it there? Annie Kiu buys hers from Jaya Grocer too…but in KL – she will always keep some in her pantry. That just about shows how nice it is. Go! Go! Grab some, and tell your friends about it. Support our Sibu industries. You can buy from Shopee – may be cheaper, I wouldn’t know.

  3. Yupe! RM12 for 8 sounds like something rather premium for the small portion right? Still if you love sushi, as long as it tastes good the price is secondary.

    Sushi is never cheap but young people fall hook, line and sinker for these trendy stuff, never mind how expensive. I have much better things to spend my money on, a lot nicer and so much cheaper.

  4. I love anything sushi, as long as its prepared the right way using real sushi rice, its hard to make a mess out of it.

    We make our own at home quite regularly, very easy…and yes, we always have the rice, the vinegar and the seaweed at hand.

  5. Next time when you’re in Klang valley, try some of the Japanese restaurants here. I think you’ll like them.

    The ladies went to one or more at Gardens – they loved those there. I never tried Japanese over at your side – too many nice things to eat, too little time!

  6. I know full well that teachers are not just sitting around at home during the pandemic. It’s been one of the toughest years ever.

    Yes, my girl is longing to go back to school – nothing like teaching face to face, that special human touch.
