DINNER @ STALL 22, ROADSIDE MARKET, SARIKEI


Confession: I'm not sure of the name of this place, as there aren't any signboards on the sides of the building (that I could see). So before leaving the place, I asked of its name, and got something like "Ru-Pian Pasar". Anyone to set the record straight? It's a bunch of stalls within a hall-like building next to the market.

I arrived at this place at around 6:30 p.m. Ordered a mixed vegetables soup, and a pig's intestine fried with dried chilli. The meal with rice for 2 came to RM11. It's not so much about the food, although they were good and cheap, but the dining experience in this town; while we eating, the stall helpers were stacking up the chairs. Some customers came in at around 6:45 p.m. were turned away as they were closing for the night. I asked why there were closing so early. The reply was: "This ain't no big town." Which pretty much explained why the first restaurant, Hung Kiew Kee,
we went to was closed. I guess late supper is out of the question unless you cook it yourself!

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!
