Twinkle twinkle little star…

Gee!!! I did not know that she sang this children’s song until I stumbled upon it the other day. It looks like she recorded an album of lullabies and that song was included – if I am not wrong, Olivia Newton John had an album like that too once a long long time ago.

Well, actually my intention that morning was to go and try the kampua mee at one of the stalls on top of the Dewan Suarah wet market (1st Floor) here. My friend/ex-colleague went there and had this…

…for only RM2.50. Elsewhere, it is RM3.50 now, going up to RM4.00 at some places and besides, it sure looked good in the snapshot.

When I got there, I did not have a problem finding a space to park my car but I was too lazy to climb up the stairs so I decided to stop by this coffee shop…

…instead. Actually this is the back entrance – the front/main entrance faces the Dewan Suarah (Civic Centre). You may recognise that apam balik/ban chang kuih (慢煎糕) guy – he is that same guy peddling in my neighbourhood at the next lane from my house in the afternoon. He is here every morning at the back of this coffee shop.

This coffee shop is noted for its fresh coconut water/juice…

…and the guy at that stall is very popular for his chap fan (mixed rice). If you come at around lunchtime, you will see a crowd gathered around the stall, all tapao-ing his chap fan to take away and eat.

I don’t recall anybody saying anything about his fried noodles but I was willing to take the chance and give it a try. I ordered his char mee, moon (the moon version of his fried noodles) and the instant it was served (RM4.00 only – prices may range from RM4.50 upwards elsewhere)…

…I could tell from its lovely wok hei fragrance that it was going to be very good. There was quite a lot of those tiny bits of meat buried under the noodles and I was pleased to see that he was quite generous with the green vegetables (sawi) too unlike what we would find at a lot of places here.

I sure would not mind going back for more but right now, I am thinking of going to try the nice lady’s at her stall beside the chao chai hung ngang stall in the coffee shop next door – I did detect the lovely fragrance from what she was cooking once so one of these days, I would go and check it out.

STAR FOOD COURT is located to the left of DIANDIANLAI CAFE (2.310079, 111.831103) in the block of shops facing the Sibu Civic Centre (car park) along Jalan Dewan Suarah that links Jalan Melur and Jalan Suarah.
