My recent Sarikei Food Trail

Undeniable that Sarikei, Sarawak is considered as my another home. In this peace and rather slow and steady town… it would be a stress free place to relax your mind.

Although most of the time my staying period were short, but I’ll try my best to fill my time with food. LOL! Especially Sarawak Foochow food which are difficult to get in KL. I do enjoy the food here. Guess most of my friends are gonna hate me for showing them something they couldn’t eat. Haha! Its like you can see but cannot eat. So torturing :-p

Below are just part of food I had. Because I decided to only share the ones that I like most.

Fried Mee Suah on the very first night.

Fried Mini Kompia with Minced Meat Filling. Aren’t they look like Pacman? ๐Ÿ˜€

Kuey Teow Tomato for supper, perhaps? ๐Ÿ™‚

To satisfy my cravings…. Kampua for breakfast on the following day!

Followed by thinly sliced pork liver soup added some red rice wine.

Thanks to Arthur for informing me about this nice Mochi with Peanut Butter filling and Nestum coating from Kim Hing Bakery and Confectionery.

In every coffee shops before your food is served, this is how they place your cutlery. In a cup filled with hot warm. Guess its more cleaner than wiping with tissues right? Unfortunately its not practiced at coffee shops in KL.

Fish Maw Soup

& Sea Cucumber Soup are my favorite soup.

Stir Fry Midin is a must have vege without fail. My favorite vege!

Stir Fry Cangkuk Manis is also another must have vege!

Zhou Cai Hung Ngan with Pork Liver rocks!

Foochow Fried yellow noodles in soup

I also dropped by Bintagor town, which is just short distance from Sarikei for their so-called popular rojak. I find that the rojak taste has deteriorate. Also kinda pricey… If I’m not mistaken this plate of rojak was around RM8-RM10 for this kind of serving size.

Had a bowl of ABC on a hot sunny afternoon. But people here called it ‘Jalok’.

A stroll to the morning market is pretty interesting and knowledgeable when you actually able to see something new.

First time seeing these fruit. Claimed as ‘Local Lychee’. Not cheap though.

This is how kompia, the popular biscuit is made. Kompia is made with lard, onions, salt and flour. A ball of flour is stuffed with a filling of other desired ingredients and flattened with a rolling pin. It is then slapped onto the sides of a traditional home-made Chinese oven.

Some Foochow pastry sold in town.

Arthur also highly recommended this to me. The most expensive noodle I had in Sarikei. LOL! But with no regrets. Tom Yam Big Prawn Noodle for RM26.

Very rich and flavorful tom yam soup with fresh and sweet prawn flesh.

Not forgetting also to dine at Sarawak’s popular fast food franchise, Sugar Bun.

Mine was like a complete meal. Comes with spicy fried chicken, fish fillet, savory rice and pickled vege!

You can also satisfy your nasi lemak craving here at Sugar Bun.ย  Apart from fried chicken or sandwiches, they also serve asian dishes. Claypot dishes served with rice.

A day before going back to KL, I also dropped by Aik Seng Cafe for the popular Roti Kahwin. Charcoal toasted bun spread with butter, kaya and peanut butter.

We had Stir Fry Rice Cakes for dinner in a restaurant, the night before we return to KL.

Last but not least, save the best for the last. MIL’s Foochow Red Rice Wine Mee Suah before we return to KL. MIL also bought Sarikei’s chicken for us to bring home!

Yea…a trip with lotsa food and higher chances of gaining weight!

Kampua Noodle @Restoran Strawberry Puchong, Bdr. Puteri Puchong

There are many nice Sarawak food that I couldn’t get it handy in Klang Valley. Needless to say at Seremban. Langsung tak ada! Huhuhu…Some common ones that you may have a higher chance to sight are kolok mee, kampua noodle and Sarawak Laksa. Unfortunately to get an authentic or somewhat taste similar is sometimes not easy. I’ve tried a nice Sarawak Laksa at Ming Tien Cafe Sunway. (Introduced by my Sarawakian Hb)

Talking about Suituapui’s Blog; visiting this cikgu’s blog often made me miss those Sarawak’s food that I hardly get it here. Especially those dishes/noodles that I like. Hurmmmm….. @_@ Within a week, he can post several bowls of kampua noodle from varies places in Sibu. (I believed he is a Kampua Hunter. hehe…) Made me have constant cravings for kampua noodles. huhuhu…… drools in front of my monitor. T_T *wipe wipe*

There’s this place, a hawker centre at Bandar Puteri Puchong named “Restoran Strawberry Puchong”… our Sarawakian friend recommended us to try the kampua noodle. Hb brought me here several times…too bad its only available during the day ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

This place would be convenient to people living around Puchong area. That includes me…although I’m not staying in Puchong…but its near for me to travel here ๐Ÿ˜‰

Apparently, the stall owner is from Sibu. Read somewhere mentioned by a blogger, the kampua noodle source was previously supplied all the way from Sibu. However now they’ve started making their own noodle after managed to get a noodle machine.

Read how kampua noodle is made —> Sarikei kam pua factory

Food served at this stall; kampua noodle (white or dark soya sauce version), mee pok, kampua soup, pien neek (meat dumplings), fried kampua noodle.

A normal serving Kampua Noodle – RM4

I’m not a fan of white version, I preferred it tossed with dark soya sauce. I’m also not a fan of Kampua Noodle in soup. hehe….

A simple and comfort plate of tossed noodle topped with boiled pork slices, 2 pieces of pien neek (meat dumplings), fried shallots and spring onions served with an ordinary chili sauce instead of cili padi. That’s how the Sarawakian eat them.

The taste and noodle texture is same like what I had in Sarawak. Too bad they do not served pig’s liver soup here. :-p

We also ordered a bowl of (Pien Neek) Soup Meat Dumpling – RM3.50.

Can’t remember the number of pieces were there. But I recalled it was quite many. Pien Neek is somehow different from our wantan.

Alternatively, you can also order the dark version of Pien Neek. Its tossed with dark soya sauce. Quite aromatic.

Next month; when I go back to Sarikei, I can have more time for Kampua and more Sarawak food!

This post is specially for friends in Penisular Malaysia craving for their Sarawak Kampua Noodle! ๐Ÿ˜‰
