One thing about Malaysian is their love for food (at least for most people I know). And no matter which part of Malaysia you go, there will be some special-must-try food… And it’s not the same eating kuey teow in Penang and kuey teow in Sarawak. Taste, cooking style, sauce… different...
So when I was in Sibu, I was taken to try some of their speciality.. And besides it being tasty and good, one thing I realize is the food there is SUPER CHEAP!!! Think RM1.70 for a plate of noodles… Or a meal of 5 different dishes shared among 6 people cost RM7 per person.
Super duper cheap… So here’s Esther Chew’s list of cheap & yummy Sibu food.
