Happiness Cafe 幸福園饮食坊 @Jalan Delta, Sibu

Address: No. 1D & 1E, Lane 4, Jalan Delta, 96000 Sibu, Sarawak.
Business hours: Tuesday 6:30am - 1:00pm; Wednesday - Monday 6:30am - 1:00pm, 5:00pm - 10:30pm


After breakfast at Chop Hing Huong, we stopped by Happiness Cafe to meet family members as they chose to have breakfast here. This coffee shop is located in housing area, Delta Road. Variety of choices here, there's a Malay food stall here too. My uncle paid a high compliment on the ding bian hu here. So out of curiousity, I also tempted to try it out.





My parents liked the kampua here. The texture was good but the lard aroma wasn't strong enough. For me, there's no kampua can compete with the kampua at Pasar Utama Bintulu.




Here's the ding bian hu. My uncle said it has lots of ingredients. Yes, it does have more ingredients but frozen fish cakes and fish balls. And they used kueh chap's flat rice noodles not the traditional form of ding bian hu. This should not called ding bian hu. They should name it differently.

Revisit Chop Hing Huong 興園餐室 & Xiu Long Confectionery 小龍餅家, Sibu

Address: 2-40, Jalan Tukang Besi, Pekan Sibu, 96000 Sibu, Sarawak.
Business Hours: Monday - Saturday 6:00am - 5:30pm, Sunday 6:00am - 12:30pm


Last week my family drove to Sibu for my bro's wedding reception. Again we tried to squeeze a time for this famous "ding bian hu" 鼎边糊. I just found out, this is the third post of Chop Hing Huong in my blog. Despite my uncle and aunt in Sibu keep recommending us to try out ding bian hu at other coffee shops, but we are still not convinced. Next post I'll blog the other ding bian hu we've tried.

This time I embedded videos in this post. 




They still do it traditionally, use the stone grinder to grind rice freshly everyday.







Ok, shame on me. I didn't know they sell also Foochow fried noodle and noodle soup. First tried their fried noodle, not bad too. The noodle was wok-fried so it had the charred aroma. The gravy was not as thick, quite watery but flavourful.




While waiting for my food to be served, I always sneak to the next door for their egg cakes. The egg cake should be their signature. We have tried their gong pia / kompia. Not so recommended, as their gong pia is oven machine baked not using the traditional clay oven.




First time I tried this modified version of "Jun Nu Piang", the sweet and soft version of gong pia. The yellow layer on top is butter. I was quite impressed with its taste, it was surprisingly good. It reminds me of Hong Kong's polo bun. But it's best to consume while it's still fresh. The next day the bread would turn harder, the texture gradually deteriorated.
