Belacan beehoon and ABC in Sarawak


Belacan beehoon is a hawker food only available in [tag]Sarawak[/tag] if I am not mistaken. I knew Sarawak had kolo mee, Sarawak laksa, kampua but certainly not belacan beehoon. When I first heard the name, I thought it would be something like belacan fried beehoon. Allen, my host during my Kuching trip told me that this is the most popular place for belacan beehoon. When Kuching folks think [tag]belacan beehoon[/tag], they think Ah Kheng in Jubilee Ground. Very true.. people were thronging this place even at 3PM well after lunch hour. Well as you can see, it’s very simple.. pour the belacan gravy over the beehoon and serve with a couple pieces of cuttlefish and chilli sauce. Honestly I didn’t like it.. the belacan smell is too strong and the taste is sweet.


This is Sarawak’s version of [tag]ABC[/tag]. They use a lot of coconut milk in preparing it! Each bowl costs only RM1, wah so cheap hor, ‘pan gi tua te’ lol. It’s good but I still prefer Penang‘s hehe.


The ingredients are almost the same with Penang’s ice kacang.. notice their extra thick and greener cendol. So if you’re in Sarawak please do make the effort to try out this unique food, I may not like it but maybe you will ;) As a visitor you gotta try everything.

    I dont know you, but that belacan beehoon is damn nice! dont forget to order century egg to eat together with the beehoon. cant wait to go back to Kuching and makan the beehoon belacan.

    vk: Sorry man.. I find the belacan beehoon is really an acquired taste. Maybe I am just not used to it.. can’t appreciate it like you guys :) I miss Sarawak Laksa and Kolo Mee though!! And how I wish I could have a glass of Teh C Peng now.. Arrghhh
