5 MUST TRY Kampua Places in Sibu

Greetings, my fellow Sibuians! Do you know what dish best represents our little hometown, Sibu? A dish that we can eat almost every single day without getting sick of it (well in my case), anytime and perhaps anywhere…that’s selling it of course. You guessed it right! KAMPUA!

A dish that is pretty well known for its simplicity and flavours. Not to mention that it is also crazy affordable, usually priced around RM 2.50 – RM 3 per serving! The perfect food when having breakfast – the Sibu way!

If you have no idea where to begin your Kampua journey, let me take you down this list of places for you to try!

1. Best Harvest Café

Another great place to have Kampua would be Best Harvest Café located at Jalan Lanang, Sibu. Personally, this place is one of my favourites because they just know how to make the dish taste so gooooooood.

From lightly blanching those silky smooth noodles in boiling hot water, then plating them onto bowls prepared with seasonings and lastly being garnished off with several slices of juicy pork, fried shallots and spring onions. What more could you ever ask for? It always gets me hyped up to munch onto those yummy-looking noodles whenever I see it getting cooked.

This place is definitely one of the locals’ all-time favourite places to have Kampua for breakfast as there is always a crowd especially during the weekends. I usually order up their Kampua with Dark Soy Sauce and a bowl of Bian Nv to have on the side for a filling meal.

Sibu’s Bian Nv or Bian Sik, is the FooChow’s version of dumplings. It is quite similar to the familiar dish we all know as Wan Tan or Yun Tun. Each of the beautifully wrapped dumplings are filled with generous spoon-sized amount of meat. When you bite into it, you can’t help yourself but to scoop up another one into your mouth!

If you happen to be staying at Li Hua Hotel Sibu town or being nearby the area of Jalan Lanang, Sing Hin Corner opens at 6 am for early morning risers like myself to get some tasty and satisfying breakfast Sibu style!

The Kampua mee is cooked to the upmost supremacy, pork being so flavourful and this dish is perfectly paired with the clear soup on the side. This may be the definition of simplicity at its finest for me. Something so simple, delicate and yet so scrumptious.

I’m already longing onto those tenderly cooked pork! And those noodles coated in some pork lard-y goodness that is to die for!

4. Rasa Sayang Cafe

Rasa Sayang Café which has been around for many years is famous for their Kampua noodles as well. This shop is located nearby Sibu Bus Terminal area, so it’s the perfect place to grab a plate of Kampua before catching your bus ride to your next destination.

Their Kampua taste quite divine as the flavours comes mostly from the minced pork and slices of meat that compliments the gently flavoured noodles. The noodles here are more on the QQ side (springy) as the texture is curlier than other places. But still, a great spot to try Kampua as each place has its own uniqueness.

5. Liang Yew Café

Liang Yew Café which is located at the heart of Sibu town and very close to Sarawak’s biggest market that is Sibu Central Market, is next on our list for some Sibu Kampua.

We ordered up two types of Kampua; the white version which is the normal Kampua and the black version which is Kampua seasoned with Dark Soy Sauce. My personal favourite from these two would still have to be the black version, it wasn’t too salty nor too sweet. I love pairing it with their chili sauce!

Each of the Kampua is being served with a garnish of lightly spiced pork slices, fried shallots and spring onions. A bowl of clear soup and a small serving of chilli sauce is always provided along the side to enhance the flavours if you wish.
