Big head prawn out from my coconut

After saw one cousin posted this interesting dish in fb, my hubby went to one of the shops in Sungai Merah Tek Lee Kwong Industrial area with a shop called  店小二 (Dian Xiao Er) yesterday afternoon to have a taste of it.  So, his verdict? Very good but I thought it was slightly expensive as it was priced RM30 each.

However I heard that some places sell it at RM40 each!

Slurping delicious and goes well with a glass of iced tea!

Since he felt guilty eating without me, he brought me to this place this morning.  Lol!  Meant to go together today but he went a day earlier with a friend. He knows I love food, and some more it is prawns!  How could I resist it?

This is considered a luxurious breakfast over here with such price and of course, you could not have it every day. I would not want to know my blood pressure and cholesterol level if I have it every day.

This dish is called Tom Yum Coconut Prawn Noodle and originated from Sarikei. Now you do not need to drive all the way to Sarikei to enjoy this delicious prawn noodle. Can be found in few places in Sibu. ;)

Love the superb rich soup that has blend of sweet coconut and sourish tom yum. And  coupled with a big head prawn, this noodle dish is worth tasting when you visit Sibu.

Good eh? Been wanting to go and try...but at that price, I am hesitating. 3 persons, RM90, not including drinks. Can go and have a really good meal with the whole family, maybe even nicer than this.

Sounds very tasty! But as lunch because seems too heavy for breakfast. I also want to ask how to eat it when the noodle and soup has been covered by the big prawn.

Rose said...

I dont think the same restaurant chain.

They give you a small bowl so just scoop into that small bowl.

Oh I just remembered! A friend of mine told me on this in Facebook when I posted up the photo of me and my better half and my dad eating in Glory Cafe in Sarikei. I set the privacy to friends only though.

He said there's one in Lorong 31, Ding Lik Kwong too! I didn't realize he meant the exact same thing, I thought he meant big prawn noodles cooked in Foochow style like Min Kwong.

Oh ya, are you on Facebook? Can you add me sixthseal@gmail.com (Poh Huai Bin) - am not quite sure where this place is as I'm not very familiar with the Sg Merah area. Is it near the workshops near Sg Antu? Thanks Rose!

Hmm. I have been there once and that time it was pretty hazy due to the haze . I only remember there were many factories around. So sorry, I can't remember. If you want, I will ask my hubby on direction and pm you in fb. :)
