Not like this…

I was at the shops in the vicinity of the Dewan Suarah (Civic Centre) here that morning so I decided to stop by this coffee shop…

I don’t know why it is Dian Dian (every day) only at this sign but Dian Dian Lai (come every day) at the sign in front…

…and also at the one at the back entrance.

I did say in my earlier blogposts that I would like to go back and try something from the very nice lady at the stall furthest inside. When I got there, I noticed there was a new stall, the second one after the Malay stall in front (which is closed on Sundays) and I did see some people talking to the guy and placing their orders.

I am not sure but this is probably the menu…

I saw it by the side of the entrance but unfortunately, I did not see anything that got me all excited. I may or may not go back there to try but first things first – I was there that morning to sample something from the aforementioned lady.

I ordered this plate of fried noodles, the moon version (RM4.00)…

…and I sure did not get my hopes up too high the moment I set eyes upon it when it was served.

What was with all that egg? I have never seen egg being added to the sauce like that – if she had wanted it to be something like the egg sauce in wat tan hor, she should blend it well into the sauce and not have it in bits and pieces all over like that. If she wanted to add an egg, I would very much prefer it deep fried (traditionally in a wok) and served, placed on top of the noodles.

Well, despite the egg, the noodles tasted all right. I thought it was quite nice but I would not say it was really so very good nor would I say it was not good. She should just do away with the egg, add a few more bits of meat and green vegetables – I probably would have liked it more this way.

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