Sibu Authentic Foochow Food

~I AM BACK~

In case you don't know, yours truly went back to Sibu for the Raya holidays to visit his grandma. One of the perks of being a Malaysian is that there are lots of holidays due to the multicultural nature of Malaysia.
(There are 3 major celebrations and a few smaller ones according to the different states. To know more about the coming public holidays, go to Malaysia 2008 Holidays.)

So, what to do in Sibu? Aside from eating, there is not much to do. Sibu is quite famous for its cheap and mouth-watering foods.

It is a quite laid back town where life flows at its own slow pace. Good place to relax and unwind although at times life there seems monotonous with all the routine activities.

Lets move on with the photos.

...............................................
Center of the Sibu Town
(At around 3am in the morning)


.................................................
Early morning
(Still misty)

.......................................................................


Food
............................................................
Kampua Mee
(Kampua is a must eat when you are in Sibu)
(It is noodle served with slices of pork)


This is the kampua mee at Rasa Sayang Cafe located at the Sibu new bus station
(Good but not that authentic though, looks like Kolo mee)
Rm1.80
.................................................................

This is the best kampua in Sibu I think. It's at a coffee shop at Jalan Selemo.
(The noodle is hand made on the spot and taste real good)
Rm2

..............................................................................
..............................................................................

Another famous local dish is the Dian Meng Ngu.
(It is a kind of thin sliced noodle made of rice served with fish ball and veggies)

This the dian meng ngu at Chop Hing Huong
(the most famous place to have dian meng ngu in Sibu)
RM2

..............................................................
...............................................................

Next up is the Kompia
(This is also a must eat when you are in Sibu)

Kompia is normally eaten dry without any ingredient, however you can also get kompia with meat and as in the picture, served with sauce.
(It is located at Tiong Hua Road)
RM1
.......................................

This is the plum drink at the same place
(Normally ordered together with the kompia)
Rm1

.....................................................................


Done with the 3 most popular Foochow food in Sibu.

Next up is the most delicious authentic Foochow food by my grandmother.
(She is a pure Foochow and any food cooked by my grandmother is considered authentic Foochow food in my dictionary. Even if it is spaghetti, as long as it is cooked by my grandmother, it is Foochow food. =p)

My grandmother is a very good cook. So far, I haven't tasted any food that taste better than the ones she prepared.

**Please note that the following food, you will never have the chance to taste unless you go back Sibu together with me. =p**
.............................................................
Spare Rib Dish
(Pork with sesame seeds and pineapple)



.......................................................................
Duck Dish
(Duck meat with red rice seasoning)



................................................................
Bai Guo Gang (Soup)
(Don't know what this is called but it is something made of rice and served with chicken and mushroom soup)



..............................................................
Bai Guo Gang (Dry)
(Fried together with veggies and fish balls)



....................................................................
Tofu Salted Fish Dish
(Tofu served with salted fish and minced pork)



..........................................................................
Claypot Fish Head Soup Dish
(Fish head soup served with yam)



.......................................................................
Bitter Gourd Dish
(Normally I don't eat this type of veggie but my grandmother cook it in such a way that it is irresistibly delicious)



..............................................................
Eggplant Dish
(Still the best eggplant dish I ever tasted)



......................................................................
Long Bean Dish
(Even plain and simple long bean dish is delicious)


....................................................................

That is it, some of the food consumed when I am in Sibu.
