JUMBO SHRIMPS TOM-YAM NOODLE @ GLORY CAFÉ, SARIKEI


I made a side trip to Sarikei on the last trip to Sibu; met up with WillChua (left) for lunch to have a fabulous crustacean delight everyone was writing about (here, here and here). This was my first encounter with the big guy, and any blogger for that matter. I asked him to meet me at Wen Wen Café, and he didn't know where it was when it's just 2 doors down from his father's shop; apparently he wasn't aware of its change of name despite having patronize the place numerous times - the things we take for granted; don't realize its significance until it's gone...

The noodle here have the usual Foochow Char-Zi (used in reverse here due to the procedure of cooking). We opted for the Tom-Yam flavor with the round yellow noodle (Hokkien noodle to some). The soup was fury hot, but still manageable ( I didn't resort to scratching my head); one would assume a Foochow town is not 'susceptible' to hot stuff - it's a fallacy - then again this is not your usual kind of town... I digress. The soup was luscious; you see the abundant lemongrass there, it had a strong citrusy tang to it. No doubt the shrimps were fresh - steeped in the soup just right to absorb essence of the Tom-Yam.


Having just said about taking things for granted... well, I was chauffered around town and the meal paid for by the good Will... I forget to take note the name of the street and the cost of the meal (impolite to ask). If you look at the above links you'll get a fair shake of where the place is at and the cost of the bowl of noodle.

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!
