Light lunch…

This was on Chap Goh Meh, Sunday, that day. We thought we would go for something light for lunch so as to save our tummy space for dinner that night.

We went to this coffee shop but it was closed. As a matter of fact, we did drop by in the middle of January, before Chinese New Year, and it was closed too. This time around, we went to have a look at what was written on a piece of paper stuck to the door of the shop. It turned out to be a FOR RENT notice – we had no idea whatsoever as to whether they had called it a day or moved somewhere else.

We were caught in some heavy traffic as we were leaving the vicinity so I made a detour into the area of shops where this food court was located. I heard about a new nasi lemak stall there but unfortunately, it was closed – more often than not, the Muslim shops and stalls here in Sibu are not open on Sundays. I shall have to go back there another day for that.

In the end, we shared this plate of fried Chinese carrot/radish cake (RM7.00)…

…the chai thow koi or koey kah as it is called at some places in the peninsula from this stall…

…in the corner. We did have that from a similar stall at that same location before and we did enjoy it, just that I was not sure if that was the same guy or not. It was good that first time and yes, it was just as good this time around unlike the one I had once at the coffee shop at the back – that one was horrible! The ladies loved eating it with the sambal belacan (dried prawn paste) dip provided.

I saw the photograph of the curry puffs at the stall and they looked quite good so I asked for those as well – 5 for RM6.50…

They were a lot cheaper than the ones here (RM3.00 each) but they were smaller and had nothing much, other than the curry-flavoured mashed sweet potatoes…

…inside, no meat, no eggs. The pastry was well done, very crusty and nice but no, I don’t think they were anything that would get me rushing back for more.

By the time we were through, the traffic had eased a bit so we quickly headed home and stayed in till evening when we ventured out again, this time for the dinner to mark the end of our Chinese New Year celebration.

KIM HOCK PREMIER FOOD COURT (2.301777, 111.843215)…

…is located along Jalan Dr Wong Soon Kai (formerly Jalan Pedada) somewhere across the road, opposite Wisma Liberty and Wisma Sri Minyak.

  1. At first glance of the picture of the chai thow koi, I was telling myself, not nice at all but surprisingly it turns out otherwise. So never judge by its look. The curry puff looks good though

    1. …and it turned out that the curry puffs weren’t really anything to shout about. How ironic! Well, many of our most delicious dishes are not so “photogenic” like our kacangma chicken, daging masak hitam, kek belacan and so on.

  2. I like the salty version of radish cake.
    As for chap Goh Mei, I had a rather heavy lunch that day. Lol. Will blog about it.

    I think we only have the salty version here – yet to come across any sweet ones.
    Oh? That’s the opposite of us – a light lunch followed by a really good dinner.
