TAIWANESE BEEF NOODLE @ HOME CAFE, JALAN KARANJI 4, SIBU


Another beef noodle tasting, but this time it's the Taiwanese variety. First off, this café is situated at a rather obscure location - next to the Methodist Secondary School and opposite the public library along Brooke Drive. On first impression, this looks like a seedy cafe behind a dark tinted facade. Its interior tells a different story - quite cosy in fact. All its tables are Sabu-Sabu equipped, and it's one of its specialty.

When we were there that morning, it might have just open for business, as we were the first and only ones there; it took a while for our order to arrive (must have just fired up the kitchen). We had the same order of Beef Noodle Soup. The own-made noodle was "Q-Q", the bean paste soup hadn't reached its potential yet and needed a bit more simmering. If we came in an hour later, it might have tasted right; so would the stewed beef benefit from a longer cooking time. Another thing lacking is in the "heat" department; I wish they pack in more chillies in the soup to give it more Oomph! It's no fault of theirs, they're just catering to the taste of the masses, who can't handle heat. I bet some jackass will jump in and say: "Not me!" - like protecting some kinda family jewel!

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
