Sui Guo Bing and Kompia

I am now still in the Swan town.

You can see swans here and there... the concrete swans.

This is the most beautiful swan in the town... getting ready to fly across Rejang river, after its transformation from the ugly duckling.

I never knew its mascot is a swan, until I am here to visit this town again.

One thing about Sibu, it is so near to get to anywhere in the town. Convenient I would say, but not much sites for tourist things.

However, I am enjoying the time looking for yummilicious.

I found good ones yesterday night.

Aunt whole family brought me to Taman Selera Muhibah for dinner.

We ordered a few things. Among them, there were 2 impressive local foods I would like to introduce.

This is stall number 5.

We came here especially for its Sui Guo Bing (Fruit Ice).

Marvellous. The fruits inside were fresh. Nothing will quench your thirst better on hot sweaty day with a big bowl of this refreshing cool ice.

If not because I was still having my flu (*Hacchu!!*), and my appetite "not so good", I would sure had a second bowl. :P

Also, we ordered some kompia from stall 40.

At first, I was thinking the typical sweet meat filling that I had in Kuching.

However, with the 1st bite, I know I like this version of kompia very much.

It was spicy minced meat. Very suit my palate. I had 2 of them, even though I was with a full stomach.

Mmmm... I definitely would go to have these two once again before I go back to Kuching.

Ok, can anyone suggest other good eating outeries in Sibu that fish fish can go and try before she go home? As long as it is not kampua. :P Thank you.

the duck rice isn't there anymore... moved back to sarikei. those kompia are not the real thing...try those stuffed with pork belly in soy sauce. donno where u can find them nowadays. try the fried "horse-hoof" at market rd. where they sell freshly baked kompia and u-cha-kueh.

kong-kay: is it? then no worries. you can still try to eat at the sibling kopitiam at pedada road near ur taman selera muhibbah. it is e bro's shop. unfortunately i dunno e name but u can spot it selling e famous duck morning-afternoon n u have a sheltered alley with tables n chairs. i hope it is not closed as well.

dat is not soy sauce, dat is herblah! n u can onli find it in dat house at tiong hua road which i mentioned in my comment. it is e best left.

as 4 e fresh kompia, tis family business in Market Rd (where nite market is at nite) is e biggest n longest in sibu. 2 siblings were even my neighbour b4 n i can just order fresh baked stuff from my backyard! if u like 2 eat fresh KOSONG kompia, go when it is just come out from oven. normally u have 2 productions a day, morning n noon. n try e authetic foochow's JIN NON PIA, u cannot get it in kuching i think.

both jin non pia n kompia have many flavours nowadays. i think u should try e kosong 1st. e horse hoof or u-sha-kueh u can get anywhere in e world lah! even s'pore can find.
