Sarawak has plenty of specialties, and one of them is the food. Malaysians love food… Heck, Malaysians are united by food. If there’s anything that 1Malaysia is good for, it’s good for the Malaysian food. Anything else, I don’t know.
Here are some food that you should taste once you are in Sarawak… Some food may look the same or have the same name but some stalls or restaurants are better than the others. So, you must have insider information on which one is good and which one is disgusting. Here are the foods you can’t get in the Peninsula…
This is century noodle from Chilli Peppers restaurant… The noodle is crispy, tastes same like claypot noodle.
Chicken wings… You don’t need any sauce to eat this with, it’s already spiced and hot and not to mention very yummy… This chicken wings can be bought outside Bimmer’s Cafe
Mushroom soup at Java Juice
Mixed grill of lamb and chicken and cholesterol and trans-fat
This is ice cream for dessert at Java Juice
Butter fish with rice from NK restaurant… The butter itself will make you full 🙂
Ginger beef with rice from NK restaurant with brown sauce
Green banana juice… or syrup… Don’t care, it’s so good that I had to drink all three of those
This is the most beautiful and colorful cake in the world… Layered cake or kek lapis… It tastes much better than swiss chocolate!!
This is my all-time favorite… Mee Kolok special from Benteng Satok! It’s so good everytime I go to Benteng, I must order 2 sets of mee kolok. This particular stall in Benteng opens only after midnight until 4 am. No amount of Russian caviar and cheese will ever be as good as a bowl of mee kolok Benteng Satok.
The super hot mee kolok must be paired with this lye chee kang… This one is so special it has a fruit named “kembang semangkuk” to cool your body down after a hot bowl (or two) of mee kolok…
Mee pok – quite similar to mee kolok but tastes different
This tomyam may look ordinary, but let not the look fool you… There’s this restaurant outside town, something with Garden, which serves the best Tomyam I’ve tasted ever… One bowl of tomyam can serve 2-3 people, I had two and half of those… Do the math!
Sago gula melaka is a great dessert and drink in NK restaurant… The sweetness of that sago will make you wanna order two of those 🙂
Linut- Melanau foodmade from sago. It’s like gum but eaten with sambal belacan… Sarawak’s sambal belacan has anchovies in it
Spageti kaw kaw Kak Odah hehehe… This one I can cook!
Salam ramadhan dan selamat berpuasa!
