ChuBBy Baba (Sama Jaya of Kuching)

We like to try different restaurants in Kuching as an outing to entertain my mother. Sometimes we hit the jack pot and she is happy. Sometimes we choose a lemon...and she would remind us again and again not to go there. She is a real foodie. I believe she has extra taste buds.

ChuBBy Baba is new in town having been opened in June this year. So it was good that we took her there for the first time after my sister passed by the restaurant several times to look for certain indicators that it is popular like lots of cars parked in front of the outlet in the evenings etc. We found the restaurant exquisitely clean. Point No.! checked!!


The entrance is beautifully decorated in the Straits Chinese or Peranakan style. So we felt very good coming here.
The Captain is a good girl from Dong Bei (China). Our friend has come from a far away land and she is very pleasant and answered all our questions with the best of manners!! Great point there. She knows the menu very well and guided us in our choice. Another good point. And you can practice speaking Mandarin with her. It is always pleasant to learn from people who are very cheerful.

The decor is also good - and very very pleasant. I would actually like to have a sip of the Four Doctors...I wonder if it is still available in our part of the world now.


The Cashier's desk is a great surprise!! Do you know what it is made up of?

This is the best pork dish on the menu - the Straits Babi Dish in Kicap
Straits Chinese Soup with Ngor Hiong and Cabbage. Very nicely cooked.
Beef Rendang...a bit chewy. May be the beef from Sarawak is not that tender.
Very nice way of cooking brinjal..deep fried with minced pork and lots of eggs and some sambal. Excellent in taste.
We ordered some nice Nyonya kuih - just sweet enough and santany to give that silky texture. You can tell the maker  has put a lot of effort into the making of the kuih. Good point.
My mum's smile says it all....Can come back here to eat again...ASAP..and the daughter who recommended the place gets a merit point...LOL.

It is good your mum has good taste of food. Like your Dad, my mum died too early, and we kids feel deprived of being able to pamper her.

Yes Ann...we do miss one parent each...I can imagine how we can now afford to pamper our late parent....I am sure you miss your mum as much as I miss my dad..if not more.

We just have to keep their memories alive!!

the Rendang looks promising,you said chewy ? - probably " Lau Gu " ...old cow hahaha

Ah Ngao

Sarawakiana@2 said...

No Ah Ngao...the chef apparently did not cut off the nasty bits e.g. fat and muscles of some pieces..I think "semua taruh"...if they use Lau Gu...they will surely lose biz. But on the whole the rendang is very nice...recommended.
