Soon Hock Cafe & Restaurant, Sibu
Kampua is the most famous local delicacies in Sibu. It is as famous as Kolok Mee at Kuching. For your information, both Kampua and Kolok Mee are almost the same. It is just different dialect to translate the word of "dry noodle". Kampua is from Foochow and Kolok Mee is from Hokkien.
Another difference is the way they prepare them. Kampua has 3 type of sauces to accompany to dry noodle which are soy sauce, white sauce and spicy sauce. While Kolok Mee has only 2 type of sauces which are red sauce and white sauce. Red sauce is nothing to do with spicy sauce. It is just coloring.
So today, I have been brought to one of the famous Kampua in Sibu which is at Soon Hock Cafe & Restaurant. Wait no more and let's see.
|Sarawak Laksa @RM4.50|
Overall: 3/5 - Not much difference in taste if to compare with the one that I had at Golden Arch Cafe, Kuching. Both are equally good. However, the prawns here are slightly smaller than the one at Kuching.
|Their homemade sambal to accompany with the Sarawak Laksa. They are a perfect match!|
Overall: 3/5 - This is the Kampua with the spicy sauce. Honestly speaking, I can hardly taste any spicy in it. It is a just a plain dry noodle with a few slices of pork. As for the taste, I like how the noodle is prepared. They are so tangy and much more wetter than Kolok Mee which will dried up in seconds which makes you very hard to swallow. I prefer Kampua than Kolok Mee at every sense.
Overall: 3/5 - Not bad. It is good to order this to accompany with the dry Kampua. The taste is quite acceptable for me. It is just too much black sauce has caused a little salty but if mixed with the Kampua, it is perfect and the saltiness is gone.
