MUNCHY TIME @ SRI MERANTI CAFÉ, JALAN HARDIN, SIBU

Rojak

This is hardly a place where you can have tidbits and a drink or two to while away one's time. Sure one can have different types of ice creams, the usual kampua mee, kompia and other coffee shop's delights. Besides, this was our second place of adjournment after #13 Pulau Babi. While others might settle for chips/crisps, burritos and dips, we had to make do with rojak and whatever Champion could dig out of his fridge. Most of the time, he has something stashed away for 'happy hours' (happy 'cos I ain't paying) like these.

Fried Crabs With Eggs

The Rojak (salad with shrimp paste concoction) was from the stall at the back, which sells Kompia too - standard fare.

From Champion's kitchen we have crabs and duck. The crabs here, which you don't get everyday and not a lot too, are personally hand-picked by the man himself the same morning from the market; so you can be sure of his crabs as surely as you can trust Paul Masson not selling his wine before its time (hic!).
You really have to get down and dig in with your sixes (4 fingers and 2 thumbs), to gnaw those suckers off.

Ditto for the braised duck parts... parts because they (wings and webs) are the two-bits players having been reprieved from previous days' servings while the rest of the duck are chopped and served out. What you see here are the accumulation of a few days' worth of ducks' parts. Not many people cherish having these bit parts, for us, suckers, we relish a suck or two!

not all are great eats... some are pretty awful too. That's the fun of trying out different things.

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!
