Made a stop

It was one lazy Sunday when my dad brought us to Siburan, which is 17 miles away from Kuching. It is one of the well known towns along the Kuching-Serian road where people stop for food and local produces.

We stopped by this coffee shop for a tea break. Dad wanted to have some "chai kueh" so luck was on our side when we were able to find a parking spot and made a short stop here.


So many food stalls to choose from but we were still full from our breakfast.

Dad ordered few varieties of chai kueh. A stuffed tofu, chai kueh with salted mustard and another chai kueh with salted papaya.

I tasted the salted papaya kueh. Not bad but too salty for me. I like the firm yet tender skin.

My first time tasted a papaya chai kueh. Something different from the normal chai kueh that I used to eat. I never knew chai kuih can be assembled into a triangle-look-alike dumpling. Usually the normal chai kuih is translucent and have plait at the side. I think I just stick with the original kueh, that used mengkuang and beancurd.

Wow! I've been to Siburan too, also ex Kuching. It's a lot of fun to go for Rural Adventures (TM) - we even made it to Indonesia a couple of times (just the border towns).

Happy Chap Goh Meh to you and your loved ones Rose! :)

I think you are referring to Siniawan, a town along Kuching-Bau road. Not sure about night activities in Siburan though.

papaya chai kueh is so special. I would like to try it too but really too much salt if you say it is salty, then I would not try. Maybe try just one.
