Situated just behind the closed-down M square building (One of the most colourful building in Miri) where we have a cafe with different varieties of food which i might say, providing different kind of flavours of nice food for Mirians :)
One of the dishes that they have is the fish noodle. Fish noodle is actually the mixture of fish meat which is processed into paste and mixed with flour and formed them into thick squarish type of texture and turned them into noodle length. What so special is that the noodles are cooked in soup based (refer to the picture) mixed with deep fried wontons (minced meat of any kind you want wrapped with the thin skin made of flour) fish cake (pretty much it is made of fish meat beaten into paste form) and sprinked with fresh spring onions and fried shallots. And then you had them (meaning that when you eat and bit them), it is actually went wild in your mouth! It is "bouncy" like something just hit in your mouth. Unlike just any normal noodles, you can felt it is "alive" when you eat them (ok not meaning that it is raw and alive ok? :D) Don't believe me? try it yourself!
Another famous dishes over there is the black pepper beef kueh tiaw (refer to the picture). I particularly love any dishes which is cooked with peppers either it is white or black. As we all know Sarawak in general produces one of the best quality pepper in the world, so i also like to use them for my daily cooking :) I personally have not tried this dish and moreover i cannot eat beef due to my religion, i will comment based on what i smell and what my friend comment on this dish. The smell is great and the black pepper goes well with beef too! The best part about this meal is that the meat are soft and easily melt when you had them in our mouth. Unfortunately i cannot reveal how to tender the meat, so find it out yourself :D. The gravy of black pepper beef poured over the nicely fried kueh tiaw and made them one of the best combination you have ever known. The gravy over the kueh tiaw just made it so silky smooth to eat and give you high satisfaction after the meal :) It is definitely worth a try with its price.
