Chefway Cafe

Chefway Cafe is a relatively new restaurant in Sibu. It is located at Lorong Dr. Wong Soon Kai 4D, behind Kim Hock Supermarket. The restaurant served mainly western food and Wagyu beef is available here.

The interior decoration is simple, neat and comfortable. It is a quiet place to dine in or simply unwind with a few glass of beers or wine.

There are a few choices of draught beer here and a number of selection of wines. 

There are only 4 choices of coffee and I opted for hot Macchiato Caramel (RM 12). It comes in a huge mug with rich caramel taste.

Grilled chicken chop with black pepper sauce (RM 20) is quite standard with mashed potato underneath the chicken. 

Pan seared assam salmon (RM23 per 100g) is quite unique in the preparation. The salmon is served with a curry assam sauce which coated the salmon chunk. I never ate salmon in such manner and it is interesting the curry assam sauce goes really well with salmon.

Should I have another opportunity to dine here again, I will probably will like to try their Wagyu beef.

Kapit Town Square

Kapit is a small town about 165km away from Sibu which translated to about 2 hours drive. 

The only noticeable landmark in this compact town is the Kapit Town Square which is strategically built in the middle of the town.

With its large square with a proper shed over the stage area, I reckon this is where major events are held in this town.

The design of the square is inspired by the Iban's heritage and culture. From it's physical appearance, I reckon the square was complete about 2 years ago.

Star Hill Inn, Kapit

While in Kapit, most of the hotels here are mainly located on the first floor of the shop houses. The hotel scenes here haven't change much since decades ago. There are not much to choose between them so I ended up with Star Hill Inn.

To reach the hotel lobby in most of the hotels here, one will have to walk up the stairs to the first floor.

Star Hill Inn lobby area is a bit well decorated compare to the others in their class. There is a water dispenser near the check in counter.

The room here is quite spacious but a bit run down. Most of the room rate at this town is at RM 100. Staying in any hotels in Kapit is like staying in a budget hotel. 

There isn't much view from here and one is likely to see another person home who happen to stay above the shop house.

As the town is now accessible by road from Sibu, it is time to have a better quality hotel for incoming visitors.

Tom's Restaurant, Kuching

As I frequent Jalan Pandungan for last couple of months, I just can't miss this Tom's restaurant as I strolled along the row of shop houses here. The restaurant serves mainly western food.

The interior of the restaurant simply blew me away with its rustic colonial ambience. I already like the place.

There are a wide selection of cakes which are worth exploring but unfortunately I didn't give it a try as I came here with dinner in mind.

I notice they have a wide selection of whiskey but the same can't be said for beer. They served beer in a chilled mug.

Baked Lamb Shank (RM 55). The meat is juicy and tender. The side dishes also met my expectation.

Fish and Chips (RM 49). They use local fish instead of the normal type for the same dish. Most of the food here are on the high side but it is totally worth it for the food quality, service and ambience.
