It’s all about Sarawak Laksa

Wish I am back to my hometown Kuching.

I could perhaps be eating Sarawak Laksa, sitting at the next table to celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.

Sarawak Laksa made it to Anthony Bourdain’s 12 Must-Try Street (Hawker) Food.

An all-time favourite of the Sarawakians, the distinctive Sarawak laksa is a must-try for visitors in Kuching. But what makes it distinctive from the laksa of other states? Is it the name? Or is it because it’s Anthony Bourdain’s favourite Malaysian food (he admitted this to The Star in 2012!)?

KUCHING: Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain is in town. He bought everyone breakfast, again at Choon Hui Kopitiam, on Friday, May 29, 2015.

  1. I’m wondering if that laksa was spicy and if Mr Bourdain ate up every last noodle. That Kopitiam is sure to be famous if it’s not yet already. Hope you’re having a good weekend, Jess 🙂

    • No, laksa are only mildly spiced, Mabel. Have you not ever tried them, even the curry laksa which I am sure you could get in Melbourne? I hope you are enjoying the long weekend too. 🙂

      • We do have curry laksa in Melbourne, but I’ve never tried it. Someday 🙂 We get the long weekend next weekend. This week was just another ordinary week 😀

  2. halo bro….yes LAKSA saya sangat suka pernah mencoba di malaysia di sekitar wilayah bukit bintang….rasanya mirip2 gado2 tapi agak asam karena ada bumbu lain..betulkah,,salam by.www.apnsandfilter.com
