This is a common place for Bayan Lepas workers. Sri Nibong Cafe is a corner lot coffee shop which is located at Sri Nibong opposite Ayer Cafe. When I first started to work at Phase 1 FIZ, my colleagues introduced this place to me. They told me the instant cook koay teow teng and the wan tan mee here taste good. This coffee shop is always full of people especially during breakfast and lunch hour. The environment is pretty warm and heaty which is the one thing that I don’t like about this place.
Minced meat, fish ball, slices of fish cake and a runny egg are the ingredients used to cook the koay teow teng. I personally feel that the quality has deteriorated over the years I’ve patronized this stall. Sometimes the koay teow used are in small pieces instead of flat long strand. Basically we have to use spoon to scoop the koay teow. Nothing much to shout about the soup base. My favourite would still be the one at Seng Thor Coffee Shop which of the soup base is definitely worth mentioning.
The runny egg is the only thing I like in this bowl of koay teow teng. Sound so pathetic huh. Well, this is just my personal taste ya.
However, the wan tan mee is still maintaining the standard and the quality. The noodle is rather thin comparing to 24hours wan tan mee or the one at Chulia Street. It’s almost similar to the one at Eng Loh Coffee Shop. Noodle texture is rather chewy and without any lye taste, the way I like my noodle to be.
Taste wise, it’s fragrant and the dark sauces tasted just right.
Toasted Bread with luncheon meat and egg as filling – finger food which you can order if the koay teow teng and wan tan mee cannot fill up your stomach.
You can opt for sausage, ham, cheese or other ingredients per your liking for the filling. There’s a wide variety to choose from.
Sri Nibong Coffee Shop closed on Monday.
The koay teow teng available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. While the wan tan mee and the toasted bread only available for breakfast and lunch hour.
