Best Laksa in Kuching

Written by Updated ago

We all know that laksa from Penang has captured many hearts of food explorers around the country. But, have you heard about the legendary laksa from Sarawak instead? It is brought together with a few household ingredients namely prawn and chicken to make the broth and then served with fine rice vermicelli. Unlike the Penang version, Sarawak Laksa tastes sweet due to the amount of time needed to make the soup and at the same time spicy and flavourful. Though it might be called the common term, do not be confused with the one in Penang because Sarawak Laksa has its own unique taste! Here are a few places where you can get the best ones!

    Poh Lam LaksaNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Given the fact that every time you ask for the best Laksa Sarawak in town, the locals will direct to Poh Lam Laksa. The laksa is served in its own signature red-coloured bowl which matches the signage of the cafe itself. The amount of ingredients may seem little, but generously this small bowl of goodness will make you keep going back for more. The prawns are seen fresh out of their shells because of their pinkish tangerine colour which goes very well with the amount of bean sprouts and the rice vermicelli. Your bowl is accompanied with sambal mixed with a sliced lime for you to enhance the taste of your soup and give it a slight sourly flavour.

    Tips

    Do not judge a laksa by its soup!

    Things to expect

    Large amount of people!

    Best with

    The given sambal with lime.

    Price

    RM5.00 to RM10.00

    Mom's Laksa

    Based on a 20-year-old recipe and has won awards like Fabulous Food 1Malaysia, Mom's Laksa has been the talk of the town! It is true when they say how a mother's dish is always the best. Mom's Laksa is definitely a bowl to ogle at: with its amazing combination of bean sprouts and boiled prawns together with fresh chicken slices and omelette strips. Finally, some fresh coriander is garnished on top to even up all the orange which also enhances the fragrance of the curry-like gravy. Once you try this one, you would never want to try another ever again!
    Tips

    Try their Special Ambal version.

    Things to expect

    Other local dishes are also available here.

    Best with

    Wash down with some local coffee or tea.

    Uncle Ben's Delicious Sarawak LaksaNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    One can never miss Uncle Ben's Delicious Sarawak Laksa if you are within the area. They really define the term 'delicious' with their choices of laksa served with other different ingredients like the regular prawns, additional chicken pieces or the one that boosts the name of Uncle Ben is their sea clams. We believe the reason behind the tasty dish lies behind the secret of making this dish itself but we would not know now, would we? Maybe it is the chopped cilantro?

    Tips

    Try the Sea Clam Delicious Laksa.

    Things to expect

    Other food stalls within the cafe.

    Best with

    With their moist sambal.

    Madam Tang's LaksaNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Traditionally made from ingredients no fresher than fresh coriander and recently the previous winner of the Kenny Sia's Hawker Food Award for the best Sarawak Laksa, Madam Tang prepares you for a refreshing Laksa dish; but with a wide range of toppings and sizes. Instead of the usual sliced omelette pieces, they include half of a boiled egg instead. Very much little on the santan so it does not drown the original taste of the other ingredients, you can be certain this will fill you enough one full meal. 

    Tips

    Try the Sarawak Laksa Special (huge prawns).

    Things to expect

    Slightly high prices.

    Best with

    Accompany your meal with the famous iced tea (teh-C peng) and banana fritters with cheese.

    Price

    RM10.00 to RM30.00

    Ah Mui LaksaNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Often compared to the one back at Fat Cat Cafe, we are certain this one has an identity of its own. Always served with a lavish amount of prawns, omelette slices and shredded meat, that has definitely become the winning factor of Ah Mui Laksa. The soup itself has a combination of both the richness of coconut milk and flavours of certain spices altogether enhanced with the redness caused by chilies in the soup. Does it really top to Fat Cat Cafe? We doubt but you be the judge between the two.


    Tips

    While you are there, try the Ah Mui Beef Noodles as well!

    Things to expect

    At least half an hour waiting time due to a few other breakfast favourites.

    Best with

    Pay a visit to the 'you char koay' stall located just next door! Eat them with your Laksa broth.

    Price

    RM5.00 to RM12.00

    Big Prawn Laksa

    Good news for prawn lovers! You will never be disappointed with this bowl of Sarawak Laksa because it is served together with not one but two huge pieces of prawn! Besides the nice combination of rice vermicelli, bena sprouts and a few meat pieces, the highlight of the whole bowl is definitely the giant seafood neatly placed on top of the soup. Despite the size, they are well-cooked to a rather orange colour and the shell is soft enough to be peeled off or it will drop off immediately. And to think that this will cost you half a day's wedges, you are in for a surprise.

    Tips

    Only opened for breakfast till lunch.

    Things to expect

    Their signature large prawn.

    Best with

    Order a plate of 'you char kway' to dip in.

    Price

    RM5.00 to RM10.00

    Fat Cat Cafe LaksaNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Being always consistent with all their servings, the Laksa stall in Fat Cat Café has captured the attention of many. Their gravy has a strong fragrance of the coconut milk which leads to making the texture thick but enough for it to be consumed easily. Together with shredded chicken, your choice in your preferred size of prawns and finally rice vermicelli that is cooked just right, you will find yourself slurping to the very last drop!

    Tips

    Might have a longer waiting time so be patient.

    Things to expect

    Always crowded on weekends for breakfast, but better on weekdays.

    Best with

    Steamed chicken from the chicken rice stall within the same compound.
