Classic Club Sandwich

THE EXACT ORIGIN of the club sandwich is still a matter of debate among culinary historians. However, it is widely believed that the club sandwich was created in the late 19th or early 20th century in the United States.

One popular theory suggests that the club sandwich was first made at the prestigious Saratoga Club House in Saratoga Springs, New York. According to this account, the club sandwich was initially served as a late-night snack for the club’s wealthy clientele. It quickly gained popularity and spread throughout the country.

Another theory suggests that the club sandwich was created at the Union Club of New York City. It is said to have been a favorite among the club’s members and later became popular in other gentlemen’s clubs.

Regardless of its exact origin, the club sandwich has become an iconic staple of American cuisine. It typically consists of layers of toasted bread filled with sliced chicken or turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise. Nowadays, variations of the club sandwich can be found in many countries around the world, customized with different ingredients to suit local tastes.

Kampua Mee

KAMPUA MEE, also known as Kampua or Kon Loh Mee, is a popular noodle dish that originated from the town of Sibu in Sarawak, Malaysia. This humble dish has a rich history dating back to the early days of Chinese migration to the region.

Legend has it that Kampua mee was introduced by the Hainanese immigrants who migrated to Sibu during the early 20th century. Hailing from the island of Hainan in southern China, these migrants brought with them their culinary traditions and skills in noodle-making.

Kampua mee is typically made from wheat-based noodles that are first tossed in lard oil to impart a savory flavor. The noodles are then served with a variety of toppings, such as slices of barbecued pork (char siu), fried shallots, spring onions, and sometimes, a splash of soy sauce.

Over the years, Kampua mee has become synonymous with Sibu’s food culture and has gained popularity not only amongst the locals but also among visitors from near and far. Its simplicity, yet satisfying flavors, have made it a beloved comfort food for many.

Today, Kampua mee can be found in various kopitiams (coffee shops) across Malaysia and even some other parts of Southeast Asia. Its cultural significance and delicious taste make it a must-try dish for anyone exploring the culinary delights of Sarawak.

Tea Woks Cafe

UNPLANNED lunch due to a sudden change of Aaron’s school activity. Kati ku tau enda nemu pagila cuti nihh… But nevermind that, and here we were looking for a quick lunch.

Tea Woks Cafe is located at Marina Parkcity, near the Starbucks drive-thru and I can assure you that you don’t need soya sauce, chili or garlic to go with your food.

Our orders were cook to perfection by their kitchen! The smell of coconut milk, curry and dry-fried anchovies made the nasi lemak just the way I like it. Also, the chicken hua diao was cooked with plenty of ginger and the wine portion is exactly what it need to create a perfect menu. Thumbs up to the lady owner and her kitchen staff. Service was good, staff were friendly and the atmosphere is relaxing for dining.
