AMAZING
1st SARAWAK LAKSA
7th Mile Kitchen, Petaling Jaya
As authentic as you can get. If you do a search for Sarawak Laksa in the Klang Valley, this place is sure to pop up. Go early, as it gets sold out fast. We were there at noon and it was already sold out for the day. We went back a week later before 11am and they had less than 10 servings left. By the time we finished eating, they had already sold out for the day.
REALLY GOOD
2nd JUST MY LAK-SA
Foremula, Petaling Jaya
“Laksa capellini pasta cooked in a mildly spicy coconut cream with tuna flakes, Vietnamese coriander, ginger flower, onions, red chilli and mint leaves, topped with a sunny-side-up egg and served with sambal and fresh lime on the side.” If curry laksa and assam laksa had a baby and raised that baby in a western country, it would taste like this. Familiar, yet a little foreign. I loved it.
3rd SARAWAK LAKSA
Aunty Christina's Sarawak Laksa, Petaling Jaya
Aunty Christina serves a pretty mean Sarawak laksa. The broth could be a little thicker, or ‘kau’ as we call it, but this still remains one of the better Sarawak laksas in town.
4th ROAST PORK CURRY NOODLES
Restoran Megah Good Luck, Petaling Jaya
Literally roast pork, curry and noodles. And the one stray tofu puff, lol! It’s not bad if you don’t mind not having green stuff in your bowl. The roast pork should make you forget about wanting any green stuff anyway.
5th THE BOTANICA LAKSA
Botanica + Co at Bangsar South, Kuala Lumpur
“Signature laksa broth cooked with flower crabs, seafood and laksa pesto; with tiger prawn, poached chicken, julienned fish cake, silver sprout, quail egg, laksa noodles and bee hoon” Interesting that they mixed laksa noodles and bee hoon together, creating a nice contrast between the two different types of noodles. Broth was good, thick and tasty. But overall it is rather expensive. If I do take the price into account, this would have been a Pretty Good.
PRETTY GOOD
6th SARAWAK LAKSA
MAMA TING Sarawak noodle, Petaling Jaya
It’s not the best Sarawak laksa I’ve had but good effort nonetheless. Mama Ting just opened recently, so I’m hoping they’re still in the midst of tweaking the recipes. Good enough to try if you’re in the neighborhood.
7th PENANG CURRY MEE
Penang Chendul, Petaling Jaya
I liked this a lot more than I thought I would. The broth was actually pretty good, I had to stop myself from slurping up too much. It’s spicy enough to tickle your senses but not overly so that it kills your taste buds. Good stuff!
8th BIG BOWL CURRY MEE
SS2 Rising Kopitiam, Petaling Jaya
Huge portion with lots of ingredients. There were fish balls, a meat ball, chicken, roast pork, fish tofu, tofu puffs, fried tofu skin, long beans, cockles and more which I can’t remember anymore. It’s not bad, but I would have preferred a thicker broth. This was a little watered down. They also have a dry curry mee which we tried as well, that one was a bit of a disappointment.
