New in town: Bearly Good – Serving bento, don & egg rice in Sibu

Get excited, Japanese cuisine-loving Sibu folks. Bearly Good recently opened on 10 Mar 2023 at Jaya Li Hua Market! The name, as you might have already guessed, is a cheeky take on the phrase “very good”.

Started by brother-sister duo Nelson and Cathy Sii, this stall will serve bento, don, and egg rice to Sibu residents. This stall is the two’s first try at opening a business together.

During the Movement Control Order (MCO) period, Nelson’s friend suggested they start a bento takeaway business together. However, MCO ended and the two went their separate ways— back to their previous jobs and independent lives. Though, that wasn’t the end of the business, as Nelson’s passion for Bearly Good continued to grow. His soul craved, and so he was driven to feed it.

Before Bearly Good, Nelson was a Western cuisine chef at a Singaporean hotel, and he also worked at a cafe in Muar, Johor. When he returned to work for his family back in Sibu, he still couldn’t shake off the deep love he had for the food industry. Thus, he continued to work on pursuing his dreams to kickstart Bearly Good.
