Sarawak Laksa

Sarawak Laksa is unique because its influences are not from one dominant community where the dish was originated by the Kuching Peranakan (Straits Chinese) community. Instead, it’s a cornucopia of local tastes and flavours unique to the varied people of Borneo.

Sarawak Laksa

Sarawak Laksa is a noodle dish made up of vermicelli rice noodles soaked in a shrimp-based broth brewed from 30 different herbs and spices, thickened with coconut milk then topped with beansprouts, boiled prawns, shredded chicken, slices of omelette and fresh coriander. A local secret to enhance its flavour is to add a squeeze of lime and some sambal belacan (shrimp paste).
