Best Asam Pedas in Kuching

Written by Updated ago

Literally translates to 'sour-spicy', this stew-like dish is a great compliment to rice. Inside the soup, or gravy, you'll find a series of vegetables, chillis, and of course, fish (sometimes fish head) as well. The combination of all these 3 ingredients makes it absolutely delicious, and a great way to store for several days as well.

    Resto Ala Kampung doesn't really serve asam pedas per se, but their grilled fish with asam pedas sauce is undeniably a good replacement. The fish is beautifully grilled to juicy perfection, where the flesh is still flaky and moist while the skin being incredibly crispy. A generous serving of sauce is then douse on top and served on a banana leaf. Lovely!

    A pretty dark and lively restaurant.

    Lazatda may sound like a parody of the famous online e-commerce platform, but it's not entirely wrong as Lazatda is an online platform for food. They do not have a shop and all transactions go through their web. They offer a wide array of Malaysian favourites, usually those that comes with gravy or soup. The asam pedas is one of them, but with a twist as it has incorporated the use of bones in it. All and all, it's asam pedas with sup tulang in one! 

    Tips

    Online order only.

    Things to expect

    A huge pot of asam pedas.

    Best with

    Iced lemon tea, soft drinks or tea.
