Some of you might be aware that I was away in Miri for a short trip to cari gali minyak. Before I went off, I sought advice from Kok who is a Miri-an on good food and places of interest in Miri. Sounded as if I'm going for one whole week :P Kok did recommend lots of great food like super fast selling char kuey tiao, rojak, fresh seafood & Kolo Mee.
Too bad I was fully occupied during day and night time *arghhh*. All I had was food arranged by my colleagues in Miri but they were good enough too! I miss the Sarawak laksa SO SO SO SO SO Much!!! And the fresh from the tank seafood, they were simply gorgeous, tasted so much better from our Unique Seafood Restaurant.
I reached Miri airport by 4 pm, due to flight delay by MAS Airline @_@ Greeted my fellow colleagues and off we went to check into our resort.
This is my room! It is big enough to accomodate 4 ppl and kinda scary for me to stay alone :P Thanks to my colleagues who told me ghost stories and insisted that they are 'real and believable'.
By 6pm, it's dinner time and I was brought to this famous Dragon Restaurant. No idea on the location. I can get lost in KL leave alone Miri...LoL. Perhaps Kok can help me out with the location of this restaurant?
Back to food, the seafood were fantabulous, fresh from the tank of course (I'm sorry my dear prawns, clams, fish, crabs & oysters!).
Can anyone help me out by naming this snail-looking thingy? All I know is that it is known as 'Dong Fung Lor' in cantonese. Most of the seafood were steamed as they were fresh enough to eat on their own. Get help with toothpick to dig out the flesh....come on come on...
Taada! Don't you reckon that it look gorgeous?
Next up is my fave dish of the nite--fresh steamed prawns. They were so sweet and juicy even without any seasoning. The best I have tasted so far.
The oysters omelette was overloaded with juicy oysters. Oishi!
And not to be missed--the fibrous pucuk paku with killer sambal.
The butter crabs were great too. The butter sauce was so thick and sinful. Aiyor, help me! I'm craving for seafood now.
A bowl of Sarawak pepper soup with big fat clams...I'm in heaven...
Done with the seafood, we went back to our resort with satisfying stomachs.
The next morning I have to wake up at 5am due to the tight schedule but nevermind *grin* I know I'm going to have the legendary Sarawak Laksa for breakfast ^_^
The Laksa broth was superb, very flavourful with generous serving of cuttlefish, chicken and prawns. Squeeze some lime juice for the extra kick. I'm awake, boss!
Hehe...actually I had 2 bowls of this. My colleagues were certainly impressed, "This is the first time I see you eating properly!"
Following that, no more great food as I was having meeting, meeting, meeting and have to rush to the airport right after that.
Anyway, to conclude this post, this is our office in Miri. Farewell my lovely Miri!
And my surprise from Ipoh--a bouquet of roses and lilies :)
