Melody life

Known this place through someone in Facebook. Most comments on the food were good so I could not resist trying it out myself.

And what a lovely English name it has for a cafe. Sounds joyful and lively, right? Must be more to such a fancy name. A normal Chinese coffee shop where you could find in other places.


In case you are curious about its location, it is situated in Kuching City Mall, the centre part (same row with CCK) in the Jalan Stephen Yong-Desa Wira intersection.

Now, the interesting part. FOOD!

Our first dish was this cangkuk manis with egg. We loved it. The cook added some dried prawns to the vegetable so it was good.


Next was the fu rong omelette, which we think was nice.

The hot pan tofu was very good. It has salted fishes to the minced meat gravy and we liked it that it has egg underneath the soft tofu. Just that it was rather dry after all the sizzling. We still enjoyed it though.


We heard good comments on its crispy pork trotter so we decided to order one portion. RM50 for a portion.

But when it came, it was not what we expected. Now I do missed Hong Fu, Sibu's version of crispy pork trotter.


This big chunk of meat was coated with flour and I could detect the 5-spices powder on it, then deep-fried. The skin was crispy but the meat was rather dry.


It came with this bowl of soup, which tasted like what we have in sup tulang

And this sweet and spicy chilli dipping.

Of course we could not finish the meat so we tapau-ed and we were having the leftover for our dinner this few days.

The "total damage" we incurred in Melody Life Cafe.

Looks interesting, Rose...sorry to hear your meat was dry, though. :)

Too bad the pork leg was disappointing. Next time hubby comes to Sibu, ask him to tapao some back to Kuching. My cousin's hubby, has three in his freezer...from last year! :D

Omelette is always my favourite...

Melody Life does not sound like a Chinese restaurant name, more like a Western cafe. The trotter costs RM50 means the price is ok or not?

Shirley Tay said...

Great picks, dear! The price looks reasonable too :D

Looks good but too bad the pork leg was disappointing. Hopefully you'll get something better elsewhere.

Rose said...

I think the price is alright amidst the GST.

You have me drooling over the hot pan tofu, Rose! Great spread, even if the crispy pork didn't meet your expectations. ^.^
