This place has one of the best Lo Mai Kai (Steamed Glutinous Rice) I have tried so far in Miri. It doesn’t taste overwhelming at all and has a good ratio of fillings to the sticky rice.

Despite being a 2-unit shop eatery, this place is always packed with customers during the weekends and the tables are never enough. There is always a line outside the door, waiting to be seated. It is suggested to come approximately before 9.30 am, because that’s when the crowd starts coming in.

Do get your hands on the OG Chee Cheong Fun (char siew or prawn) soaked in sweet soy sauce giving that lovely salty flavour. My personal favourite is their EGG TARTS!! Buttery, flaky and crispy tart shell filled with creamy smooth custard on the inside. Perhaps one of the best place serving egg tarts I’ve had in Miri.
