As highlighted earlier, the only crowd puller to Jakar is the famous prawn noodle at Peking Restaurant.
I had predicted the restaurant to be packed during the recent Labour Day holiday and hence I departed from my home earlier. I arrived around 9am and it was already fully packed with more people standing outside waiting for empty seats.
It's quite obvious the restaurant is short handed. The owner of this restaurant is assisted by her daughters and an Iban worker. The Iban worker is funny and friendly but the same can't be said about the owner and her daughters.
This is the owner's dog. He was still a cute puppy when I was here in December 2007 and he had grown up. He somehow seems unperturbed by the noisy surrounding and enjoying his nap.
Kampua noodle (RM 2.50), a Foochow delicacy which can also be found in Sibu. Nothing special about this noodle here.
The flagship dish of this restaurant, the prawn noodle (RM 12). One can opt to order a bigger prawn (and of course, it will cost more). We waited almost 30 minutes for this. I notice they prepare this noodle individually rather than mass production
Peking restaurant also serve other dishes such as fried noodle, char kway tiao and etc. The food served here are not necessary cheap and comparable to those in Sibu
