Chong Choon cafe could very well be the most crowded place for Sarawak Laksa because it is strategically located in the town centre. Even though the shop is quite large with plenty of seats, it is still a challenge to find a table here.
The situation is worse during weekends and public holidays when outstation folks also flock to Kuching. Since we already tried Chong Choon’s Sarawak Laksa six years ago and we did not feel like waiting, we headed to Woon Lam Cafe 1999 instead, or more popularily known as ‘Yun Nan Yuan’.
Basically there are two versions of Sarawak Laksa here, the normal @ RM5 and the special (shown above) @ RM8 which features extra large, succulent prawns. If you haven’t tried any Sarawak Laksa before, I guess the simplest way to describe this dish would be a thick, slightly sourish and tangy version of curry laksa. The spiciness on the other hand, is quite mild. A squeeze of lime adds some nice citrus kick and it’s highly recommend you do so to fully appreciate the intended flavor.
