DINNER @ STARJOY GARDEN RESTAURANT, JALAN IGAN, SG. MERAH, SIBU

Crispy Pig's Knuckle

This is a new setup slightly beyond the fringe of Sungai Merah township or rather village-ship. It has a coffee shop eatery downstairs and a restaurant on the upper floor.

On the first visit, we naturally let the maitre d' parlay the best food forward. And this was what we got... Ho-hum!!! Ah Lau might have been still tipsy then! Why would I say that? 'Cos a couple of my friends, a few table away, had nicer platter (Haw-Kow sort of mixed hor'dourve than we did... that's why... and we did order in advance. Instead we got some same-old-same-old that you see below...

Fried Spinach With Century Egg

Steamed Fish

Toh Miaw With Beef Tendon

Fried Mushroom With Luffa (Ridged Gourd)

Fried Noodle

... but somehow, I know I'll be back to taste the one that eluded me... someday...

The food, overall, wasn't too bad, but nothing outstanding, considering the majority of the dishes were vegetables fried the normal way. The pork knuckle was a bit too fat, with not too much meat on it; the skin didn't have the wow factor.

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!
