and has been in operation since 1960.

Kedai Makanan Mun Wah Hokkien Mee seems to be doing very brisk
business and attracts a wide range of people. There’s an altar for Kuan
Yee Kor (Kuan Kong) at the back, complete with incense for offerings.

I managed to get the cook to pose for a photo, though I didn’t take
the shutter speed into account and he went back to his (slightly
charred) Hokkien mee cooking in the wok. The place specializes in
Hokkien mee and people reportedly throng to this place for it.

The rack at the back of the cooking place is filled with piles and
piles of the thick fat yellow noodles used to make Hokkien mee. Hokkien
mee is a sticky, slightly sweet noodle preparation.

I ordered 100 Plus for my drink and it came in a steel cup, which I
found to be amusing (though I don’t know what the source of amusement
was, I just found it funny).

mun wah hokkien mee sign

Mun Wah Hokkien Mee is very clear about what its flagship dish is,
by this sign prominently stuck on every single table. It was translated
as “People ordering Hokkien Mee may have their meal served faster due
to this eating establishment’s specialty. Please be notified that other
orders may be delayed as this place does not practice a first come
first serve policy when Hokkien mee is involved”.

mun wah hokkien mee mixed

This is what the Hokkien Mee looks like. It was mixed with beehoon (rice vermicelli) to give it a bit of texture. It was really good – the sticky Hokkien mee tastes nice, with all the little crunchy bits to complement the taste.

mun wah fish puffs

We also had a side order of fish puffs – it was served with Thai
chilli sauce and one of the people I was with noted that it tastes
particularly good, nice and puffy, with a soft almost
melt-in-your-mouth texture.

Kedai Makanan Mun Wah Hokkien Mee is a great place for Hokkien mee – it’s really good!

Teochew Roasted Meat Flat Mee

Teochew Kampua Mee @ Central Market, Sibu

This is said to be the best kampua mee in Sibu. I went last night
with a couple of my buddies but I’ve been busy so I only posted it
today. This stall is on the second floor of Central Market and I’ve
been told it’s only open from 8 pm – 11 pm at night, except for
Sundays. 3 hours per day, and they have heaps of customers due to its
reputation so be prepared for a long wait. I think we had to wait more
than 30 minutes, which is a long time for kampua mee!

Teochew Kampua Mee (Plain)

Anyway, I thought it was okay, it’s good, but I’ve had better. :p I
had two bowls – one plain and one with soy sauce + chili sauce. The soy
sauce + chili sauce one is better, IMHO. The soup is great, I don’t
know what they put inside, but it’s different from the usual kam pua
soup. The meat is roasted (smoked?) pork, tastes slightly better than
the normal ones, but the noodles is helluva oily. The reason for the
long wait is not only coz of the many customers, but because they cook
each bowl separately, unlike other stalls who just chuck everything in.
