An interesting post on Penang Malaysia.

Home to many Foo Chow delicacies, Sibu (Sarawak) is a town where one gets to find many delicious eats like Kompia, Kampua etc. Sibu is also the second largest town after Kuching (in the state of Sarawak). Thanks to the geographical location and right next to the Rajang river, Sibu is dominated by the bustling waterfront industrial trading activities such as transportation of timber, pepper and rubber. The town has a population of approximately 200,000 and most of them are descendants of Foo Chow… which explains on the availability of Foo Chow delicacies. There are many flights traveling to Sibu nowadays and AirAsia has launched a direct flight from Penang to Sibu recently. The Sibu Airport is approximately 30-minute drive away from Sibu town but due to the lack of public transportation, it is best to rent a car if you wish to explore the town (or neighboring towns). 

Some tips from Ken:

  • Book a hotel somewhere in the heart of town, we recommend either RH Hotel or Kingwood; the former one offers a more spacious room and strategically located right next to the landmark- Wisma Sanyan but the facilities are older. The latter one is closer to most tourist attractions like the Sibu Central Market or Tua Pek Kong Temple and has newer facilities but the service is less-attentive and usually busier with events (parking might be an issue if there are events in the hotel). 
  • Rent a car so you won’t miss out any attractions in town; while those tourist attractions are accessible by foot, you get to venture further with a car. But if you are renting a car, do take note on the parking fee by local authorities. You need to get a parking coupon booklet if you don’t want to get any parking summons. 
  • Start your day early- the Sibu folks usually start their day very early and you can start by exploring the Sibu Central Market or any hawker centre. There are limited activities after 7 pm so don’t worry, you will get plenty of rest after sunset. 
  • Bring sufficient Cash- many shops are still on cash term, even if some may accept credit cards, there is usually minimum spending requirement. E-Wallets are not common in hawkers; as for others, those E-Wallets like Touch N Go and GrabPay are not commonly used (they use Sarawak Pay for your information). 
  • Check out Arthur’s blog- the very experienced true blue Sibu resident knows where to get the best food in town, watch out for his recommendations (and mine below).

1) Payung Cafe

Pork-Free

Service Charge: No

Government Tax: No

Address: 20F, Lanang Road, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 10 am to 10 pm. Opens Daily.

Contact Number: 016-578 7614

Payung Rojak (Rm 12)

Belimbing Prawns (Rm 17)

Kacama Chicken (Rm 16)

Payung Fish (Rm 15)

Nasi Kerabu Kelantan (Rm12)

Anjung Smoothie (Rm 7)

Bagged a couple of awards, Payung Cafe is a famous restaurant in Sibu; it started many years back as a restaurant specializes in Borneo cuisine but has since expanded its menu to offer more variety to include Western dishes and other South East Asian delights. Known to many by words of mouth- apart from its interesting menu offering, the restaurant insists not to use any MSG or reusable cooking oil; it only offers what is best in season and that being said, the consistency is there. There are many uncommon dishes (at least to us) with rather odd combination especially to West Malaysians but if you are visiting the town as a tourist, skip the Western menu and go straight to their Borneo dishes. A must try dish at Payung is its Payung Rojak with a variety of refreshing crunch and a generous sprinkle of the Torch Ginger, the Rojak sauce is sweet but not overly so. Belacan is not used and instead, Gula Apong is used, so it has a distinctive palm sugar flavor that works perfectly with crunchy vegetables and Peanuts. Equally interesting is the Belimbing Prawns- not the ordinary Starfruit but wild ones so the dish has a refreshing acidity to it… exquisite and hard to explain in words. Kacama Chicken is a Hakka dish most commonly found in Kuching, it uses a type of Herb to cook and its an acquired taste, not something that first-time taster would enjoy. Plan your visit in a group so that you get to try more dishes, the flavor combinations are unique and definitely a good novelty experience for West Malaysians. 

2) Ruby Restaurant

Non-Halal

Service Charge: No

Government Tax: No

Address: No. 71, Ground and 1st Floor, Jalan Kampung Nyabor, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 9:30 am to 2:30 pm, 5 pm to 10 pm. Opens Daily.

Contact Number: 016-890 5833

Teo-Chew Styled Steamed Patin Fish (Rm 30)

Signature Fried Tofu (Rm 7)

Stir Fried Midin (Rm 11)

Stir Fried Cangkuk Manis with Egg (Rm 8)

Stir Fried Egg with Sea Cucumber (Rm 16)

Peanut Barley Drink (Rm 4) and Sugar Cane Juice (Rm 3.50)

Ruby Restaurant may not have the most convincing facade and appearance but the family restaurant has been around for years and its one of the go-to places when it comes to a quick, inexpensive family meal. The interior decor of the place makes you feel like you have time-traveled back to 30 years ago but that’s part of the homey ambiance. The restaurant does not have a printed menu but solely relying on the server’s recommendations… mostly revolve around local home-cooked styled dishes. Most of the food items are affordably priced here. We recommend trying the Stir Fried Cangkuk Manis with Egg and Stir Fried Midin; if you are game for some fresh river fish, their Patin is equally worth-trying. For those with a sweet tooth, you might want to consider trying a drink unique to Sarawak- Peanut Barley… something similar to our Peanut Tongsui but slightly diluted version. 

3) The Coffee Code Roastery

Pork-Free

Service Charge: No

Government Tax: No

Address: No. 1, Jalan Bintang Selatan, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 8 am to 11 pm. Opens Daily.

Contact Number: 010- 847 5056

Black Rice Liege Waffle (Rm 11)

Classic Souffle Pancake (Rm 11)

Honey Pistachio Nut Cinnamon Roll (Rm 9)

Salmon Cheese Sourdough (Rm 19)

A change of flavor- The Coffee Code Roastery Sibu is one of the few more proper cafes in town that offers full Western menu with desserts. The cafe is located approximately 10 minute drive from Sibu town centre and occupies a big corner unit bungalow. Step in the place and you will be welcomed by a spacious, comfortable space; there is also a display counter showcasing an array of fresh bakes and pastries/cakes. The main menu features items like Pizza, Pasta, Brunch Set, Flat Bread, Sourdough Open Sandwich, or even Japanese-inspired Don etc. On top of the cakes/pastries on display, the menu also features sweet treats like Waffles, Pancakes etc. 

On our visit, we had the Salmon Cheese Sourdough and we thought it was good. The Salmon cubes were lightly fried and served with Avocado, Olives, Lettuce as well as some Blue Cheese sauce. The bread was lovely and the Salmon was reasonably seasoned- the Blue Cheese Sauce was spot on with discernible Blue Cheese flavor but not overly done. We also enjoyed both the Black Rice Liege Waffle and Souffle Pancake; the former one has a crisp-chewy texture and worked well with simple basic stuff like Maple Syrup and Butter… the latter one was soft-pillowy with a discernible egg flavor, the accompanied whipped cream with Maple syrup went well either. The Cinnamon Roll unfortunately was not up to par, we thought the texture was somewhat dry and the Honey-Cream Cheese combo did not stand out. Nonetheless, we were quite happy with our overall experience and would recommend you to include this place in your Sibu food list if you need a change of flavor from the local food. 

4) Mak Borneo

Non-Halal

Service Charge: No

Government Tax: No

Address: 21, Ground Floor, Lorong Dr Wong Soon Kai, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 10 am to 11 pm. Opens Daily.

Contact Number: 013- 816 5898

Grilled Sago Worms (Rm 12)

Grilled Lokan (Rm 12)

Umai Ikan (Rm 17)

Stir Fried Vermicelli Noodles with Cangkuk Manis (Rm 7)

Midin Langkau (Rm 12)

One of the few ethnic restaurants in Sibu, Mak Borneo is popular amongst the locals for churning out traditional ethnic dishes. The menu is big and features a lot of native delights that are uncommon to West Malaysians. Alcohol drinkers would be glad to know that the place serves alcohol like Tuak. Food menu wise, there are barbecue items, mains as well as some specialty dishes suitable to go with alcohols. Those with strong stomach may attempt exotic dishes like the Grilled Sago Worm or Umai (native dish of the Melanau, like cured Fish); diners can also try some local fresh produce like Lokan (Clams) or Midin (wild vegetables of Sarawak). For those who are curious, the Grilled Sago Worm is slightly chewy in texture and has a burst of sweet juicy filling. Definitely a place not to be missed when you are visiting Sibu. 

5) Sibu Central Market

Entrance Fee: Free

Address: Jalan Channel, Sibu Town, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 6 am to 12 pm. Opens Daily.

No trip to Sibu is complete without a visit to its Central Market… which is said to be Malaysia’s largest indoor market with both wet market and dry market combined. The Sibu Central Market has 2 storey and it houses 1,118 stalls- from various local produce to different types of handicraft. The upper floor on the other hand, houses different food stalls with tables/chairs so visitors get to order and dine-in, just like a hawker centre. The market offers a lot of exotic stuff like live Chicken wrapped in newspaper or Sago Worms (if in season) as well as some uncommonly seen fruits/vegetables. Watch out for the salted fish stalls if you wish to grab some Dried Shrimps back (local fresh produce in Sibu). Do check out the stalls selling local snacks/Kuih, the Foo Chow Lay Peang or Kompia; they are inexpensive and delicious. Tips for visitors- visit the place on Sundays and there will be more stalls.

6) Aloha Cafe Sibu

Address: Jalan Keranji, Sibu Town, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 6 am to 9 pm on every Monday to Saturday, 6 am to 2 pm on Sundays. Opens Daily.

Sarawak Laksa (Rm 7)

Kampua Mee (Rm 3.50)

Fish Ball Soup with Glass Noodles (Rm 6.80)

One of the best places to try some Sibu popular dishes would be Aloha Cafe, the hawker centre houses a lot of hawker stalls… with some Muslim-friendly options. The Sarawak Laksa stall is especially popular but the place has got more than Sarawak Laksa to offer. One can also find Kampua, Char Koay Teow, Fish ball Soup, Roti Canai over there. The Kampua is just alright so we will not mention further. The Sarawak Laksa is not to be missed. There is a unique smokey touch in the soup which makes the whole thing more delectable, it has the quintessential peppery aftertaste but not overly bold. Also worth trying is the Fish Ball Soup with Glass Noodles, the own-made Fish Balls are made from Spanish Mackerel and that pretty much speaks for itself- sweet with an addictive bouncy texture. Aloha Cafe is definitely worth a spot on your Sibu travel list. 

7) Big Thumb Bakery

Address: No 71 to 73, Jalan Tuanku Osman, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 7:45 am to 6 pm on every Monday to Friday, 7:45 am to 5 pm on Saturdays, 9 am to 1:30 pm on Sundays. Opens Daily. 

Contact Number: 084- 339 829

Yam Pandan Mochi (Rm 8)

An old school Bakery in town Big Thumb Bakery is a place you need to drop by especially if you are looking for some local cakes or baked goods (for souvenirs). According to a local Sibu friend- Arthur, the Pineapple Tarts and Mochi are good. There are still plenty of stuff there like the local Bread or Pau; as the place is located within Sibu town and easily accessible by car, you may drop by to check out some of the goodies. As for us, we tried their Yam Pandan Mochi and we thought it was not something like the Japanese Daifuku but probably more like the Taiwanese Mochi. The Yam filling was sweet and the Pandan-Yam cobo felt a little odd. The Mochi did remind us of Snowskin Mooncake. 

8) Nica Plus

Pork-Free

Service Charge: Yes 6%

Government Tax: No

Address: No 18 & 20, Lorong Intan 6, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 10 am to 10 pm. Opens Daily. 

Contact Number: 084- 315 295

Matcha Red Bean Bingsu (Rm 18.80)

Rum N Raisins Mille Crepe (Rm 7.80)

A place not to be missed by dessert lovers- the Nica Plus offers a wide variety of sweet treats including Bingsu, Shaved Ice, Macarons, Cakes, Gelato etc; they do serve mains if you must know but the place is especially known for its desserts. The place is the perfect spot for afternoon tea where you get to enjoy some freshly baked cakes or refreshing-chilled sweet treats. On our visit, we had the Matcha Red Bean Bingsu and Rum N Raisins Mille Crepe. We were most amazed by its Bingsu, the texture was silky smooth and the flavor was spot on. There were hints of Condensed Milk but the overall concoction was good, not too sweet and perfect to cool us down under the sultry hot weather. Frankly speaking, we liked their Bingsu even more than some of the cafes in Penang. As for the Rum N Raisins Mille Crepe, we thought the texture was somewhat harder than expected… the flavor could be bolder either (but we are not complaining for the price). 

9) Sing Hin Corner

Address: Jalan Indah 2, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 8 am to 8 pm. Opens Daily. 

 

Mee Suah with Chicken and Rice Wine Soup (Rm 6.50)

Kampua Mee (Rm 3.60)

Pian Sip (Rm 3.60)

Sing Hin Corner is probably one of the most accessible places in Sibu town for a plate of good Kampua- the place is located in Sibu town centre and within walking distance from the town’s most prominent hotel- Kingwood… making it the most practical place for a Kampua meal especially to tourists. The place has been around for quite some time and its known to the locals for serving some of the best Kampua in town. It is also notable that Sing Hin Corner opens as early as 8 am and runs until late afternoon, so it can be a place for breakfast, brunch or lunch. The Kampua comes in 2 different variants- black or white; the former one is dressed with Dark Soy Sauce while the latter one is dressed with Light Soy Sauce and of course, the soul to the dish- Pork Lard. Sing Hin Corner’s Kampua is springier and has a nicer texture as compared to Aloha’s, the seasoning is also better. On top of the Kampua, go for their Pian Sip (otherwise known as Wan Ton)… which is Pork Dumplings and resemble something like our Wan Ton but probably with a longer “Wan Ton tail”. A nice place for Kampua with easy accessibility. 

10) Sibu Night Market (Pasar Malam)

Address: Jalan Market, Pekan Sibu, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 6 pm to 10 pm. Opens Daily. 

Various Kuih-Muih

Various Satay

Grilled Pork and Innards

Steamed Pao and Xio Bee (Pork Dumplings)

The Sibu Night Market is probably one of the must visit places in Sibu for foodies. The Night Market is available every evening and it gathers quite a fair bit of Sibu’s food stalls. One can find many interesting eats in the Sibu Night Market; the ones with the most crowd would those selling barbecued Pork (and innards) over coal fire. Even if you have had your dinner before your visit, you can consider to grab one or two pieces of the unique Kuih or Xio bee (Pork Dumplings) from the Night Market. There is also Muslim-friendly section which sells Satay, Rice and various Kuih. The non-food stalls however, are less-appealing. 

11) Arki Sapi

Pork-Free

Service Charge: No

Government Tax: No

Address: Lorong Bukit Assek 7, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 8 am to 4 pm. Opens Daily. 

Contact Number: 010- 977 9128

Beef Tendon Noodles (Rm 14.90/ Dry)

Beef Noodle Soup (Rm 12.90)

A relatively new Beef Noodle restaurant in Sibu town- Arki Sapi has quickly gained attention in a short period of time; not only that the place has a comfortable, air-conditioned seating, the restaurant’s Borneo beef noodle focused menu is appealing for beef lovers. Arki Sapi’s Beef Noodles are generally served either Dry or with Soup as well as with different cuts. The broth is packed with beef flavor and a bold herbaceous aroma… quite unique as compared to the local version of Beef noodles that we are accustomed to. We enjoyed the Beef Noodles a lot, probably even more than Kah Hiong and would prefer the soup version. A pity that the Chili sauce was not hot enough, would be perfect if it could carry a tinge of sourness and spicier to push things to the next level. Worth checking out if you are a fan of beef noodles. 

12) Brother Sing Seafood Cafe 亚圣海鲜

Non-Halal

Service Charge: No

Government Tax: No

Address: No. 4H, Ground Floor, Lorong Aman 2, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 7 am to 10 pm. Opens Daily. 

Contact Number: 084- 320 840

Stir Fried Chicken with Gravy (Rm 10)

Stir Fried Kangkung (Rm 6)

Stir Fried Pek Kuey (Rm 4)

Cao Chai Vermicelli Noodles (Rm 5)

Slightly off the beaten track, Brother Sing Seafood Cafe is located approximately 5 mins drive away from Sibu town centre; the place is known to the locals for its River Prawn dishes as well as its inexpensive local chu-char dishes. The menu is quite direct and straight-forward, all available dishes are written on the board; the server is friendly and able to offer advices. There are plenty of local chu-char dishes to choose from but if you are up for some simple noodle choices, go for their Cao Chai Vermicelli Noodles. The broth is cooked using the Foo Chow pickled Mustard, giving it a unique flavor; a type of delicacy unique to the Sarawak Foo Chow. Another special dish to watch out would be Stir Fried Pek Kuey… almost like Malaysian’s very own version of Topokki except that it is less chewier (almost mushy-soft type). Nonetheless, this place has more than these to offer; a good alternative for any local, classic dishes. 

13) Sibu Eng Ann Teng Tua Pek Kong Temple

Entrance Fee: No

Address: Jalan Temple, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak.

Business Hours: Opens Daily.

 

If you are driving or touring around Sibu city by foot, chances of you seeing this 7-storey pagoda and Chinese temple are very high. The Sibu Tua Pek Kong Temple oversees the Rajang River and can be found right next to the bustling streets of Sibu town. The temple is believed to be at least a century old (some parts of the building were refurbished) and has a lot of historical values. Visitors can also visit the pagoda, take the straits up and you will be rewarded with a breath-taking city view and a view on the Rajang river. An important tips though- if you are parking your car right next to the temple during evenings, be careful of the bird poop shower that might happen. 

14) Flōs

Pork-Free

Service Charge: No

Government Tax: No

Address: Hann’s Esplanade, Jalan Wong King Huo, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 11 am to 10 pm on every Monday to Saturday, 11 am to 6 pm on Sundays. Opens Daily. 

Contact Number: 014- 600 0613

Flōs (Rm 17)

Pandan Pound Cake (Rm 4)

Toastie Ham (Rm 9/ only Rm 5 if purchased with any beverage)

Matcha Tea (Rm 13/ cold)

A new commercial district slightly off the Sibu town centre, Hann’s Residences has quite a lot of new restaurants/cafes to be explored and Flōs is one of the worth checking out ones. The cafe is sharing the same space as the floristry with plenty of fresh flowers on display… which gives the space a bright, relaxed vibe. There is also a lovely space surrounded by greens right outside the cafe for those who prefer a more outdoorsy ambiance. Flōs does not serve any main but a small selection of sweet treats like cakes, macarons as well as some beverages. One of the few places in Sibu where you can chill and relax over coffee and desserts. 

15) Kah Hiong Ngiu Chap and Go Fun Kee Bak Kut Teh

Non-Halal

Service Charge: No

Government Tax: No

Address: No. 83, Ground Floor, Jalan Kampung Nyabor, Pekan Sibu, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 8 am to 8 pm. Opens Daily. 

Contact Number: 016- 208 4535 (Kah Hiong)/ 016-856 1235 (Go Fun Kee)

Beef Brisket Noodles (Rm 13.80)

Vegetable Bak Kut Teh (Rm 8.50) + Pork Balls (Rm 5)

Kah Hiong Ngiu Chap has presence in many places all over East Malaysia, this is one of the many branches. We were staying in one of the hotels within walking distance from this place so naturally it became our choice for breakfast. Right next to Kah Hiong Ngiu Chap at Jalan Kampung Nyabor is Go Fun Kee Bak Kut Teh, both brands share the same shop lot and diners get to try both brands at one go. The signature Beef Brisket Noodle has a clean tasting broth with mild beefiness; the meat is expertly cooked till fork tender, together with the broth, it is a comforting yet delicious dish to start the day with. Another option would be the Bak Kut Teh. For us, we decided to go for something light and had the vegetable Bak Kut Teh with some Pork Balls. The broth was quite similar to ours but a slightly bolder herbaceuos flavor. 

16) Yu Lung San Tian En Temple (Jade Dragon Temple)

Entrance Fee: Free

Address: Jalan Sibu-Bintulu, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak. 

Business Hours: Opens Daily.

Said to be the largest Chinese temple in Sarawak, Yu Lung San Tian En Temple (Jade Dragon Temple) can be found quite near to the Sibu Airport so you can plan it in a way where you are on your way to the airport, make a quick detour to the temple. The place is very big and spacious but it is also very quiet if there is no event. We had a brief stop on our way to the airport but there was nothing much. But since the entrance is free, I guess no harm stopping by admiring the architecture.

17) Ta Kiong Supermarket Sibu

Address: 42, Jalan Tuanku Osman, Pekan Sibu, 96000, Sibu, Sarawak. 

Business Hours: 8 am to 9:30 pm. Opens Daily.

Probably the only place in Sibu town that sells imported goods, Ta Kiong is very popular amongst the locals for their daily supply of imported goods (food and alcohols). You can find many imported stuff at a bargain here at Ta Kiong, like the Australian, Japanese, Korean snacks etc. If you feel like having some alcohols in the evenings, grab your supplies here along with some tidbits. We came here a couple of times to grab some Tea to quench thirst as well as buying some souvenirs (like the Sibu instant Kampua). We also found the Chocolate Mint Soju here in Ta Kiong… if you must know, it tastes like tooth paste in liquid form. Ta Kiong has a no photo-taking policy so this is the reason why we did not take any photos inside. 

BONUS:

Short Half-Day trip to Sarikei and Bintangor:

1) Peking Restaurant

Non-Halal

Service Charge: No

Government Tax: No

Address: Bandar Jakar, Jakar, 96100, Sarikei, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 11 am to 9 pm. Opens Daily. 

River Prawn Foo Chow Noodles (Rm 35/ bowl)

Stir Fried Baby Corns with Mushrooms (Rm 12)

If you are renting a car like us and able to travel around, do consider a half day or full day visit to Sarikei or Bintangor, approximately an hour drive away from Sibu town. The road condition is not perfect so the travelling time will be longer than usual. But it is definitely worth it, one of the must eat delicacies in Sarikei would be the River Prawn Noodles. The best place to savor this delight would be Peking Restaurant, located 10km away from Sarikei town centre. The place gets very busy during lunch hours so plan your trip accordingly. There is written menu in the restaurant but rely solely on the server to take orders. Most regulars are there to get their regular quick fixes but the place is in fact popular for its River Prawn Noodles. Each serving of the River Prawn Foo Chow Noodle is riced at Rm 35- 2 fresh medium sized River Prawns served with braised Foo Chow Noodles (with soup). Expect the soup to carry bold sweetness of the crustacean with a sleek spiciness. 

2) DAWN House

Pork-Free

Service Charge: No

Government Tax: No

Address: No. 22, 1st Floor, Jalan Repok, 96100, Sarikei, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 11 am to 10 pm on every Tuesday to Sunday. 11 am to 5 pm on Mondays. Opens Daily. 

Blueberry Cheese Cake (Rm 14)

Lavender Tea (Rm 11/ pot)

If you are visiting the quiet town of Sarikei (approximately an hour drive from Sibu town) and keen to do the tourist thing- to take photo with the Pineapple statue and looking for a place to rest the tourist feet… DAWN House is within walking distance from the Pineapple statue. It does take a while to locate the entrance to the cafe as it is located on first floor of a building… with entrance from the side alley. Traipse up the stairs and you will find yourself in a comfortable, air-conditioned space. The menu offers some simple mains with home-made cakes. Nothing spectacular on the food but if you are in dire need of a short break (from the sultry hot weather), this place is worth visiting.. 

3) Wong Hung Ping Rojak Stall

Pork-Free

Service Charge: No

Government Tax: No

Address: Jalan Mahkamah, 96507, Bintangor, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 8 am to 6 pm. Opens Daily. 

Rojak Bintangor (Rm 7)

Sarikei Pineapples (Rm 3)

Wong Hung Ping Rojak Stall is the de-facto go-to place when it comes to a plate of good local Bintangor Rojak. Since the town is popular for its fresh local produce, the Rojak is equally popular and attractive; the local fruit salad even lures foodies from other towns like Sibu or Sarikei. The Rojak is very different as compared to Penang Rojak- there is no Belacan and instead of other sugary substitutes, Sarawak’s Gula Apong is used for the touch of sweetness. For Wong Hung Ping’s, it carries a sleek sourness and has a lot of Fritters (with heaps of crushed Peanuts). If you are like me who prefer more fresh crunchy fruits in my Rojak, then you might want to give it a miss. 

4) Lu’s Biscuit Shop

Non-Halal

Service Charge: No

Government Tax: No

Address: No. 8, Ground Floor, Jalan Dermaga, 96500, Bintangor, Sarawak.

Business Hours: 10 am to 6 pm. Opens Daily.

Kompia (Rm 1 for 3 pieces)

Lay Peang (Rm 3)

You will find Lu’s Biscuit Shop after a short walk from Wong Hung Ping Rojak Stall, the old school confectionery has plenty of of traditional Foo Chow snacks and biscuits to offer. The locals come here regularly for the Kompia… affordably priced at Rm 1 for 3 pieces. As for tourists, the place is ideal if you wish to grab home some of the Foo Chow snacks without worrying on bursting the budget. 

Have Fun Exploring Sibu, Sarikei and Bintangor!
