Situated in the old quarter of Kampung Koh in Sitiawan, Sin Ek Sek Restaurant is acclaimed for serving the best kampua mee (Foochow-style noodles) in town. This simple yet delicious dish consists of noodles topped with pork slivers and scallions, tossed in a dark soy sauce-based dressing with pork lard. The texture of the noodles is particularly praised by patrons​​​​.

Aside from kampua mee, the restaurant also offers curry mee. This dish includes the same noodles served with a spicy chicken-and-potato curry, described as addictive by customers​​. Additionally, the Foochow steamed dumplings, known as sio bee, are a highlight. These juicy minced pork dumplings wrapped in wheat flour are noted for their tastiness​​.

For those seeking a larger bite, the "tua pao" or big bun is available, filled with minced pork, chicken, hard-boiled egg, and radish​​.
