There are a few vegetarian restaurants and food stalls here in Sibu but we’ve never gone to check any of them out. So far, the closest we’ve got to one would be at one of our favourites here where there are quite a lot of options on their menu that are suitable for vegans.

It so happened that we dropped by our favourite Indian/Indonesian restaurant for lunch last Saturday and it turned out that what my girl ordered was something vegetarians could sit down and enjoy as well. She had the naan cheese aloo gobi (RM15.00)…

…from their Indian menu, baked in the traditional Indian tandoori (oven). I did not try it myself but she said it was good. She certainly seemed to enjoy eating it with the mixed vegetable curry (RM13.00)…

…that she ordered to go with it.

I wanted the fish curry with basmati rice…

…also from the Indian menu, but it appeared that they had discontinued the item as it did not seem to be very popular among the customers.

In the end, I opted for the tenggiri (mackerel) penyet (RM19.00)…

…from the Indonesian kitchen.

I gave the piece of tempe to my girl – she seems to enjoy that a lot and left the fried tofu…

…by the side. They turned out to be extremely salty – it certainly could do with a lot less salt or none at all, especially in my case as I am on a low salt diet at this point in time. The acar (pickled cucumber and carrot)…

…was great and I enjoyed the fish with their very special own-made chili dip.

My missus had the ayam bakar berempah (RM16.00)…

…that I tried before and I could remember how I enjoyed the sauce so much and yes, she was likewise impressed and enjoyed the chicken a great deal. Of course if that had been my order, I would not have been very pleased with the fried egg but my missus is not as fussy as I am so I did not hear her complain. LOL!!!

We were going to the sunset service in church that evening so I ordered their chicken vindaloo biryani (RM21.00) and their butter tandoori chicken biryani (RM21.00)…

…to take home and heat up for our dinner so that my missus would not have to slave in the kitchen that evening.

The ladies had their authentic Indian ginger tea (RM7.00 each) that they enjoy a lot here while I just has a glass of drinking water. The total came up to RM123.00 and the boss just collected RM120.00 from me.

I don’t know if it was because of this video clip shared recently by some wedding planner on Facebook but business sure seemed to be booming these days – all the tables in the outer section were filled and they refused to open the other section for customers who showed up a lot later than us for fear that they might have to wait a mighty long time. I thought that was really good – this way, they would be able to ensure there is quality control in what they serve. We certainly will have to make sure that we go a little bit earlier the next time we intend to drop by for lunch or for dinner again.

The CAFE IND (2.290813, 111.829294)…

…is located along Laichee Lane, right behind one block of shops facing the main road (Jalan Kampung Nyabor) where the Bank Simpanan Nasional, Sibu branch (2.290561, 111.829071), is.

  1. Among all the food you had, my choice will be the fish curry or tenggiri penyet. That huge slab of mackerel is calling me… 😋😋. Mackerel is one of my favourite fish. The acar looks great too. Indeed a nice lunch

    I just managed to buy one HUGE mackerel at my favourite fish stall yesterday, around RM50.00 but I was able to get them to cut into many big slices like that one that I had that day. Usually they only had smaller ones at the stall, cannot cut into slices and fry like that.

  2. Your girl’s mixed vegetable curry sure looks tasty. I see that your missus was served two chicken wings. I would have preferred drumstick or thigh, they must have run out of those.

    I do not recall any drumstick in their Indonesian menu, all chopped up perhaps, not whole. On the other hand, we would get whole drumsticks and thighs when we order their tandoori chicken from their Indian menu.

  3. I like what your girl ordered, naan with veg curry. What you ordered for dinner looks delicious.

    Yes, everything here is delicious. We sure enjoy coming here but of course, at those prices, we can’t come here all that often!
