RM 400 for 14 people. The food is nice.
If you happen to find yourself in Sitiawan and in need of lunch or dinner, this could be a worthwhile stop. Prices are affordable, taste is pretty good, seafood is fresh and service is fast.
Before I tried James Cendol, I thought no matter famous or not, all cendol taste same but James Cendol proved me wrong, it is a taste which I can remember and tell the differences with others. It comes with rich aromatic coconut milk (santan) flavour but not too sweet. Overall, it is a yes, definitely worth a try!
The Loh Mee came with thick soup and smooth savory broth. The noodle was so smooth and delicate; it just slurps in your throat literally. But, the soapy broth had very strong bamboo shoot which I found quite disturbing.
The next stop was Pasar Awam Kampung Koh which is a few minutes drive from the biscuit shop. Look for the shabby shack under the big tree opposite the morning market, and try the famous noodles of Loh Mee and “Loh Lak” Noodle.
Verdict: No hesitation in recommending the steamed fish head which arrived at the perfect intersection of taste and texture. If you happen to be around Sitiawan, make your way to Restaurant Chai Chin, it’s definitely a place worthy to spend a meal on.
Mun Yap would recommended their Bak Kut Teh,Red onion Fresh Fish, and their stir fried spicy fish with pork!!
The pancake-like fritter was tasty and better eaten dipped in the Kampung Koh (what else) chilli sauce. The bubur cha cha was homely but wasn’t as rich as I preferred. Sad really.
The prawn fritters here comes with a couple of small prawns cooked together with the batter.
Verdict: A very affordable meal that only small town like Sitiawan can offer but it doesn’t compromise the quality of the food. I really love the texture of both Kampua Mee and Dan Yan. Oh yeah, don’t forget to get some crunchy fried fish sticks (the item served in purple bowl in first photo, resemble Fuzuk sticks) to go with your Foochow noodles!
