This time I went to Bangsar for Auntie Christina Sarawak Laksa, which many claim is be the best Sarawak Laksa in Klang Valley. Kolo Mee aside, Sarawak Laksa is another hawker food from Sarawak that I fancy a lot.
The most memorable Sarawak Laksa I ever had was at Choong Choon Cafe 2 years ago during my trip to Kuching. It tastes somewhat similar to curry mee with a sour twist and having a totally different garnishing.
I don’t know if other types of noodles is used but a bowl of Sarawak Laksa typically comes with bean sprouts and a special type of vermicelli, which is a bit thicker than the ones we usually have. It is then garnished with omelette strips, prawns and coriander leaves. A bowl cost RM5.00. Click here to continue reading >
Sarawak Laksa and Kolo Mee are definitely the first foods that come into mind when one mentions Kuching, Sarawak. I’ve seen and read so much about Sarawak Laksa in Kenny Sia and sixthseal‘s blogs that I was dying to know how they taste like. No other food managed to make me feel that way, so I have to thank them for this. They have been promoting these foods so hard and have taken so many yummy photos too.
If you are an avid Penang reader of Kenny Sia’s blog, you should know that he came to Penang earlier this year to compare Sarawak and Penang food. Because I have tried both Penang Laksa and Sarawak Laksa, I can finally understand why Sarawakians would be so disappointed and dislike the taste of Penang Laksa. The reason is they are totally different dish altogether!
