Teh Tarik and Hainan Chicken Rice @ Bamboo House (Sibu)

Bamboo House in Sibu has been one of the top notch "coffee houses" in Sibu for a long time.

Since the opening of the Premier Hotel in the Sarawak House there has been a keen interest by almost every one to have a meal in Bamboo House and almost a generation has grown up knowing that there is a Bamboo House!! The ambience and the menu have been continually upgraded to keep up with the times and the taste of Sibu people and world travellers. It is amazing to be back here actually in my case.

There are other Bamboo Houses around the world too. One famous one is the Hollywood's

(This serves good Thai food)
Mr. Tony Hii - a very approachable and very intelligent Sibu born GM of Premier Hotel.
But to those of us from Sibu our very own Bamboo House has grown to be a fine place to chill out...especially the lovely huge teh tarik...and the idea of the size according to Tony Hii Doh Ming the GM is to allow guest to stay for a longer time in the coffee house and enjoy more food!!


I have here a male model to show you how huge the teh tarik is....





True to the words of Tony Hii...the teh tarik took us a long time to finish and the chicken rice was good. Compliments to the chef!!

Sarawak's own jelly fish from Kuala Rajang - turned into my favourite jelly fish salad...a traditional Foochow detox idea for hairdressers and barbers!! And people who are hardworking like us. A MUST ORDER dish. (10/10)

Special Bamboo House 's very FRAGRANT Chicken Rice
Delectable Sweet Leaves fried with eggs (only found in Sarawak)
Special Kai Lan with 2 mushrooms and fungi


It was a good treat given by our fellow Sibu Blogger Mr. Tony Hii (He advises readers about investments and latest investment trends)....

After the lunch we went off on our journey to Kerto by road.....looking for more history of the Rajang River...Thanks Tony for the great treat!!

May Bamboo House continue to be strong and atttractive in the years to come!!

do they pour from one mug to another like in Singapore and West Malaysia? I never had tea tarik because I have black unsweetened tea.

During one of my trips back to Sibu, I stayed at Premier, and treated my relatives to Bamboo house.

Hope you have a good holiday in Sibu...and do enjoy all the nooks and corners of the town....Bamboo House would be a nice place to rest after all the adventures...Cheers. do drop by again!!

Yes..they do...I was told by an Indian friend that the best way to make teh tarik is to use two metal mugs...glass will not help to foam up..I wonder if there is a scientific logic behind this...

You are so nice to give your relatives such good treats!!

Hi ..fancy you remember all the small details..like it being the on and only air con place...
In those days my colleagues and I must have a meal once a fortnight there..I thought the chicken chop there was really good....But I later felt very uncomfortable when more and more singers and their boyfriends came to chill out...and smoke up the whole place...several of us developed asthma in those years too...but we did not blame it on the Bamboo House....(no offence Tony...just memories..)

heheheh, later it became a seedy place. Apparently there were quite a few coffee houses sprouting up. I have never been, they say it is so dark you can see your friend's place.

Those were the days...when instant millionaires also lost their wealth as quickly as they sprouted up...and Taiwanese singers were the star attractions in Little Sibu...So sorry to hear of how marriages broke up and wives committing suicide.
