Fisherman Restaurant, Sibu

Reliving childhood memories :)

Long time ago, this restaurant was previously known as fisherman's pub. 
There was even live band, as far as I can remember.

But, having the name changed slightly, does not have anything to do with the quintessential flavors of this true blue exotic Sarawakian dishes served in this restaurant.

Still rocking as ever :)

If you are looking for authentic Sarawakian dishes in Sibu, this is a must-go place, no pork is served.

First dish: keropok appetizer.

The keropok is made from fish or prawn paste, dried, and deep fried to produce that airy and crispy crackers.

Next is the signature dish of this restaurant. This type of shellfish is known locally as lokan.

 This dish was prepared differently, and you will be pleasantly surprised once you pry open this shellfish.

 There is a medley of meat and flavors in the lokan. In short, the lokan is stuffed with fillings, I could taste onion, fish paste, and a medley of spices. Lovely.

Not to be missed, is the wild fern paku simmered in coconut milk.

 Oh! This reminds me of how my late grandmother had always made this dish to perfection. 

From the grinding of spices, dried shrimps and a splash of fresh coconut milk.

Very good.

Next. Lamb cutlets. 

Whoah. Out of the world! Eh, mind you. RM12 per piece!

 The lamb cutlets were very juicy, tender served with mint sauce and the other, homemade sauce which I could not remember. (Sorry, I had to struggle with my very severe memory loss). 

Awesomeness :) I can only have it in my dream, period. Till I get back home again.

Ah, we have another wild fern entry again, after the stint with paku. This is midin, the crunchier counterpart of paku, different taste, and if you are not local, you should try this too.

This one is stir-fried with sambal belachan (shrimp paste based ground spices).

 And stir-fried beehoon (vermicelli) to go with all the spicy ferns.
