CHOW CHAI HUNG NGAN @ AH LAN FOOD CAFÉ, CENTRAL MARKET, SIBU



Most of the stall-holders here used to be tenants of the old market, or roadside stalls scattered around the town. Since the city council bans all roadside hawking, most are relocated here. Rental is cheap, so is the food; Kopi-O-Peng still at RM1.

I'm totally clueless as to the reputation of the stalls - each looks the same as the other; food ranges from Kampua, Foochow zi-char, chicken rice, porridge, shaved ice drinks and Muslim food. This particular one sells noodles of all sorts from dry to fry, and meat porridge too.

We ordered the chow chai (lees preserved veg.) Hung Ngan (thick vermicelli) with instrustions that it had to hot and sour; nice shrimps? Also got!!! No worry, the seafood market is just one floor down. It took a while for our order to arrive, despite the fact all the adjoining tables had already been served. I suspect they indeed went to the market of instant shrimp purchase.

As you can see from the nice looking bowl of noodle above, the taste didn't disappoint either. Hot & sour, and everything is a-okay! That includes the price: RM4.50 each.

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!
