RedCarrot by SugarBun

red carrot

RedCarrot is designed as a “higher end” dining experience by SugarBun (the fast food franchise). Naturally, the concept of fine dining for a fast food establishment is rather different from boutique restaurants and such, and I wouldn’t use that adjective to describe RedCarrot at all (despite owning stock in SugarBun). πŸ˜‰

red carrot interior

The ambiance is really quite warm and inviting and the place is air-conditioned. It tends to attract a different set of clientΓ¨le despite being located just above the SugarBun in Pedada. There’s no screaming hyperactive children running about with minimal parental control on the upper tier. πŸ˜‰

red carrot bar

The place is quite conducive to conversation but the food isn’t anything to write home about, so I hardly ever go there despite it being just a two minute drive from my place. Autumn lives near me too, and the only reason we went there tonight was coz we’ve both already eaten dinner and wanted to get out of the oppressive heat without ADHD inflicted rug rats stressing us out.

red carrot drinks

We get more than our RSA (Recommended Stress Allowance) from our office already, so that’s enough stress vitamins and nutrients for healthy daily intake without adding to it at night. πŸ™‚ RedCarrot serves a lot of carrot based drinks – this is Autumn peering at the Red Carrot + Beetroot (RM 5.80) and Red Carrot + Lemon (RM 5.80) that we ordered, trying to figure out which is which.

redcarrot fish

We shared one of their flagship dishes – the Fish Fillet “RedCarrot” Style (RM 13.90). “RedCarrot style” apparently means dousing the fish fillet with Thai chilli sauce and having a lot of red carrots (what else) on the side. It’s served with French Fries which tastes suspiciously like SugarBun French Fries (and in all probability is SugarBun French Fries since it’s under the same banner). It’s pretty good though.

redcarrot fruits

This is the Fruit Platter (RM 5) which comes with sliced green apples, starfruit, and honeydew. Autumn eats a lot of fruit, but I don’t. I have been getting excessive RSA intake lately and that, combined with the less than optimal fiber intake in the guidelines of the US RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) has resulted in a prolonged bout of constipation. You don’t even want to know about my hemorrhoids. πŸ˜‰

redcarrot us

RedCarrot is a pretty nice place to chill out and relax. The crowd it draws tends to be couples so it’s a more subdued and quiet place to have supper at. The food is nothing to write home about but the ambiance more than makes up for it.

…and I noticed that Autumn has a very interesting skill (?) of being able to eat fruits with seeds and then inconspicuously spitting it out onto a fork (!) of all places.

I am suitably impressed.

  1. hey, you’re alive. good.
    bit of misfortune that we have to see each other last in hospital. maybe you can’t remember given your benzo-level memory bank. anyways just to clarify again, I was there purely out of courtesy. you made me look bad then, know what I mean? but let bygones be bygones, good to know you’re kicking (or running).
    and to a certain emoticon in here, I know you can see this. and this is my last warning to you, I leave you alone so don’t fuck with me. unlike some I have no qualms or morals when it comes to perceived justice on my own behalf. so do the best for yourself, keep your thoughts to yourself next time.
    sorry about that, HB. just had to hijack your comment box for a bit. live in peace.

  2. It has been around for some two years now, I think. I used to go for the set lunches after work…until once when the fish fillet came out uncooked inside! I still prefer the fish fillet at Sugar Bun downstairs but this place has nicer decor and ambience…

  3. Always go here with my bestie when we want to catch up and gossip. Heheheh! It’s kinda dim in there so we’d choose to sit in a corner and no one can see us πŸ˜‰
    STP: Yeah, I love the fish fillet from Sugarbun as well! Never failed to have that whenever I visit Sugarbun. πŸ™‚

  4. hey man. Your site is blocked by so many proxy in china it has been impossible for me to check it from there. only now I am out on the road and can surf like normal person again. glad to see you doing so well. and that chick nicole is a FOX brah!! she is like a super chromosome man!!

  5. Wilson Wabbit: Well, we got 1901 hotdogs first too. But RedCarrot is owned by SugarBun and SugarBun has always considered Sibu it’s stomping grounds. πŸ™‚
    kutucat: Okay, I shall do a post about it one day. I am having Type III (not requiring surgery yet) – wait till it does and I’ll video and photograph the procedure. My hemorrhoids comes from my past opiate use – I would go on a methadone or heroin binge for weeks (without bowel movement) and then force myself (literally straining) to clear the stuff out. I think it’s common amongst opiate users and old people.
    ech3lon: Hello there! I don’t remember the incident actually. Where was it? I was hospitalized so many times I can’t even keep track. Normah, Sarawak General Hospital or Sibu Specialist Center? If it’s Normah and related to the emergency dialysis incident, yeah I probably know the incident you’re referring to. My apologies.
    Anyway, like you said, let bygones be bygones. Cheers buddy!
    I think I know which emoticon you’re talking about. Why don’t you comment on her blog instead? I don’t think she reads my blog all that often, mate.
    I don’t mind you hijacking it to send a message but if she replies and it goes into a flame war which is totally unrelated to the post, I will start removing the comments. Comment on her blog instead. πŸ˜‰
    Well, all the best to you my friend, and take care!
    Peace buddy.
    butterscotch: She knows kung fu too. Don’t play play. πŸ˜‰
    miumiu: Eh, I didn’t even know they had WiFi over there…but then Autumn will kill me if I start updating or replying comments while going out with her. πŸ˜‰
    suituapui: Yeah, it’s been around for a long time. I just haven’t been there often since the food isn’t really good. The fish fillet is alright, and the Thai chilli sauce tastes good on top of it. I usually go to the SugarBun at Sibu Gateway. πŸ™‚
    Clare: Yeah, the lighting and ambience is great over at RedCarrot. I like the place, just not the food.
    Everyone loves the fish fillet from SugarBun and the broasted chicken as well, since we grew up eating that. We didn’t have McDonald’s back in the days, not until I was 14 years old.
    Avi: The Great Firewall of China, eh? No wonder I don’t ever get visitors from the PRC. I wonder what bothers them since I don’t talk about Falun Gong (oops, now I have), Tibet (okay, another banned keyword) or human rights in China (now they’re really gonna block me). πŸ˜‰
    Thanks for reading, buddy. Appreciate the support. Cheers!
    annant: Yeah, the mugs are kinda quirky. I prefer drinking juice from a huge 1 liter mug though. 11:30 pm is pretty late by Sibu’s standards. πŸ˜‰
    kenwooi: It’s not as classy as it seems. I just took it at the nicer angles. πŸ˜‰
    The food is nothing to write home about but it’s a nice place to hang out.
    Pixeldoll: It’s Complicated (TM). πŸ˜‰
