Sibu Trip 2011 - Food P0rn!!

*warning* - read for your own risk!!

I am back from the long blog break!! Not that i just came back from Sibu, but i am back two weeks ago, yes, this is another backdated post. *sigh*

After i back from Sibu trip, few days later we went for another short holidays nearby, which is a place that was my first time step foot on the country, but that will be in another post, stay tune for that.

My recent Sibu trip, it was an un-planned trip. My grandpa was unwell beginning of the month, i decide to go back to paid him a visit, since this year with the hectic schedule i have not go back. I brought my two boys went back together with me, yes, they skip their school for 4 days, and i brought back all their homeworks back too. :(

This trip we went back by taking Firefly, this is my first experience with this budget airline, good that it depart at KLIA instead of LCCT, the forever busy, noisy, havoc airport! Food was i pre-order online, i am not sure how it go, but when i book online, it don't allow me to pass if i don't click the inflight meal. I did see some passenger on flight, they don't pre-book their meal, i wonder how to skip that. They do have in flight meal too, but you have to paid, just like another budget airline. Things are expensive. One thing about the food with firefly, they might need to improve a bit.


Firefly Airline, Nasi Lemak, Fish noodles, nasi briyani with ayam rendang.

Fearles said the noodles is good, i didn't try, he finish half of it. Nasi lemak is too spicy to my liking. We are taking the early flight, Cruz was sleeping all the way to Sibu, so i have to finish the food, but i just took few spoons of both. Nasi bryani too dry and not much taste. :(

Upon arrival, first thing i told my mum, let's go for breakfast first before go home, i miss my kampua noodles, this is in my top list "a must have food" every time when i am back home.

When i just reached home, i receive an sms from Arthur, asking me am i already back in town, i told him i just back, he said he is on the way to my mum house and look what he bring for me??


delicious and freshly baked from oven chicken pies and "lay piang"!! In case you want to know what "lay piang" is, read this post from Arthur, you will get the idea. This is a 'cake" or "biscuit" that i have not eat for many many years. How sweet Arthur is ya?

Back in Sibu, nothing much to see, every day beside food it still about food. LOL. That said how much i eat and eat the food i missed and can't get in KL.

We had a late lunch on my first day arrival. We went to Y2K Sibu to have lunch, food was good but a bit pricey to Sibu standard.



Midin, i love this vegetable very much. I like it to cook with foo chow red wine.



sea cucumber soup...nice



sweet and sour boneless ribs, yummy.


It taste different from the sweet and sour meat here in KL.



cangkuk manis fried with egg.


Sarawak cangkuk manis is different from here, it taste more crunchy and sweet. This is a common dish in most restaurant, and also a must try dish if you happen to visit Sibu or Sarawak.



salad prawns, my nephew favorite.



Fearles love midin too, he got my taste bud. kekekkekekek


Next day, we met up with Arthur for breakfast nearby my mum's house. I want to try the coffee at this coffee shop where Arthur said it's the best in town, i have to agree with him.



~ my thick coffee, yes it is very good!
~ my boys has roti canai.
~ Arthur's pork porridge, my mum said this porridge had been there for many years, so far is the best.
~ my CKT in Sibu style, with an egg on top.




my boys and Arthur, Sibu famous food blogger and he is the Sibu godfather. Every of his guests who visit him, he give a good and warm welcome and he will feed you well too!



After breakfast, we make a trip to Sibu Central Market, i know my boys miss their 'friend" - the live chicken!!! LOL


If anyone of you visiting Sibu, this is a place not to miss. :) A lot interesting things to see.



Sibu Central Market- click the picture for large view.



On the same night, we met up with Arthur and his missus again for dinner at one of the restaurant in town.


roast duck, taufu soup (Sibu specialty), as you can see my two favorite vegetable in the picture again, never get bored with it.




we have their house special fried kampua and chicken rice and sweet and sour meat.


A simple dinner, i do hope Arthur and his missus enjoy the dinner, although the food is super simple, they might have it everyday, but to me it is the food i missed. :D

My 6 days 5 nights back home, like i said i just eat non stop, there are no hunger moment. kekekekkekke

Now let me show you some more food, don't hate me. :) Sharing is caring.



Sibu's confectionery


Sibu local dessert
~ jia lok
~ sotong, kankung and taufu
~ jia lok
~ five taste soup



Tada...this is my kampua collection. Yes, a lot of you may said this look like wantan noodles, it is far away taste like wantan noodles. Actually, kampua it's original plain white in color, but i like my version - with soya sauce and chili sauce, that is why all my kampua is dark in color.



~ pian sip, here we call it wantan, but the wantan skin in Sibu is more thin and soft, very different, i like.

~ pork liver soup with foo chow red wine, this one you can order it at most coffee shop that sell kampua, nice to have this soup with kampua, yum yum.

~ Dabai aka Sibu Olive, yum!

~ Glass noodles /tang hung soup with fish balls.



look at the plate of "pian sip" it's actually for myself. My boys had a try, they love it and finish the whole plate!






we had dinner together with my brother and family...


~ roast pork
~ Pork Satay
~ Sibu style pan meen
~ stalls that sell roast pork satay
~ cangkuk manis
~ sweet and sour pork ( this dish mainly for the kids)
~ Chao chai soup ( this is my favorite)!!
~ Sibu mee suah with foo chow red wine
~ Very nice roti tissue
~ taufu
~ juice kedondong
~ yau mak (vegetable)


Sibu Specialty - Kompia


chinese style bahulu, nice and yummy!


fresh from the oven!


another Sibu Specialty - Ding Bian Hu



how they do it, they will pour a thin layer batter / flour on the wok, move the wok left right and get the batter cook, then "slice" them down piece by piece, then add on soup. This is how they cook, something interesting and worth to try. This place i went, the taste so so only, don't have the "old" taste which i use to eat.






my mum with the grandsons...



my boys and their great grandfather, the 4th generation.



my boys and their cousin brother.



they got chance to experience plucking longan from the tree. It's at my aunt house.



me and my mum.




A day before i leave Sibu, Arthur sms me and told me he got something for me again. You see what he get for me? He knew that i got no time to eat all the food, he bought this Sibu delicacy, tee piang for us! tsk tsk tsk.



this one is with meat filling. I prefer the plain one, and i like to dip it with chili sauce and eat.



On my return flight, i told them to just ignore my pre-book meal, i just get the noodles for Fearles, and Cruz want hotdog, but they are running out of hotdog, end up i bought a cup noodles for him @ RM7. :S






Last but not least, Arthur get me this Sibu tradition moon cake!! Thank you so so much for all the food, Arthur!



It just a short trip, hope next round i can go back for a longer time.

I don't know how to tell you how to go there, but i know there is a round about if we turn to the right, it will be going to the old swimming pool, turn left, that is the new area.

Hope you can find the place and hope you enjoy the food too.
