I knew about this restaurant when walked along the Rajang Park along the Rajang river. It used to be some sort of restaurant but changed to The Ark Cafe. I roughly browse through their menu before and it seems not cheap compare with the current Sibu standard, more toward hotel price. The environment is cosy and great for gathering. You can make early reservation for your lunch or dinner or event have the party at the restaurant.
Overall experience, great interior design but expensive food with not really good standard. They also have the value lunch set for around RM10, you may want to try that if you just want to enjoy the environment but spent less.
We visited the restaurant on Gawai period, so there are only limited menu for us to choose from as the staff is not enough.
Green Tea Vanilla Latte Milkshake (RM13+) - this tasted quite good although the price is higher. It comes with a scoop of ice cream.
Chao Cai Tapah Fish Soup 糟菜鱼汤(RM18+) - the soup tasted quite nice, fish very little and no meat. The fish had super fishy taste which is really no good to us.
Lady Finger with XO Sauce 羊角豆XO酱(RM22+) - tasted very good with the sauce, the only thing was quite oily when it served.
Salted Egg Crispy Fish金沙鱼片(RM22+) - tasted and smell good. It was deep fried crisply, this is the right choice from the limited menu.
Golden Pineapple Fried Rice 凤梨炒饭(RM18+) - Tasted not bad but I did not really see much pineapple. The crackers were not crispy at all.
