Only at night…

I’ve heard about the or chian or the oyster omelette, our Sarawak/Kuching style ones…

…or what they call the Kuching or Sarawak pizza, here at this coffee shop but somehow or other, I never got round to dropping by to check it out until that day sometime ago.

Unfortunately, the stall was closed. I asked the people around there and they said that it would open only at night. From the banners and the ads all around, it sure looked like this was some kind of watering hole where people would go in the evenings for drinks and they would probably order the things from the stalls to munch.

I had not gone there…

…since 2014, believe it or not and it sure had changed quite a bit. The ang kau kampua mee stall is no longer there – somebody else is running it now but it had called it a day when we dropped by at around noon that day so I was not able to give it a try.

The kway teow stall (the one on the right in the above photograph) is still alive and kicking – I did try it that last time I was there and that day, it seemed to be one of the two that were still active at that time of day.

The ladies gave their tom yam hung ngang (RM7.00)…

…a try but according to my missus, it was the worse they had ever had. Oh dear!!! I must say that it did not look very enticing – the soup was so murky and they did not even finish half of what was in the bowl.

I asked for the beef tripe and tendon noodles but they had run out of tendon so I was served the beef and tripe with the noodles (RM8.00)…

…instead. It was all right, a little mild/bland – I sure wouldn’t mind a richer and stronger beef broth/soup and a little bit less noodles but yes, I did manage to eat it all up in the end.

I also went to the other stall (the one on the left in the above photograph) to order the sotong kangkong (cuttlefish with water spinach). There were three sizes available, RM5.00, RM15.00 and RM20.00. I did not know which one to order so I just asked the guy to prepare something for three and this (RM15.00)…

…was what we got in the end. Yes, it was very nice – we loved the very thin crisps…

…whatever they were, probably deep-fried wanton (piansip) skin, but I wouldn’t mind a bit more of the delightful sauce though.

Well, that was our lunch for the day. Ahhhh!!! I remember now! We didn’t want to cook that day and had something outside because that night, we were going out to dinner with my sister to celebrate her birthday. Well, I’m afraid what we had wasn’t anything to get us running back for more, not at all.

AH CHING KOPITIAM (2.305198, 111.848080)…

…is located at Lorong Pahlawan 7 in the vicinity of the Sibu Bus Terminal.

  1. Among all, sotong kangkong is my favourite. Yes, those thin crips are probably deep fried wanton skin. Over here, they use deep fried “you tiao” and whenever we buy rojak they will add it.

    Ah yes! I think I saw that in West Malaysia. This one’s different from another stall – there, they fry sweet potato fritters to add to the sotong kangkong. I think they do that for the celebrated Bintangor rojak too.

  2. The or chien and the sotong kangkong is so different from what we have here. They do look yummy. Would love to try.

    Yes, the or chien is very different, not sure about the sotong kangkong. There is another way of serving here – the sauce is given in a bowl -you dip and eat yourself.
