Old news, but still, it was an exciting news that Anthony Bourdain expresses love for Sarawak Laksa! As a CNN program host, he came to Sarawak 2nd time, this time, for filming of the program show, namely Parts Unknown.
Recently there’s this picture circulating Facebook showing the Top 10 iconic food poll result, of Sarawak’s local food, by Sarawak Travel, Malaysia, Borneo with 598 votes, well, not a lot but it’s still quite accurate ^^ As a Sarawakian, I’m proud to intro our best local food in Sarawak :3 Anyone visiting Sarawak state or its city Kuching must try these!
1. Sarawak Laksa! (155 votes)
2. Kolo Mee <3 <3 (122 votes)
3. Ayam Pansuh (63 votes)
4. Midin Belacan (46 votes)
5. Ikan Terubuk Masin (17 votes)
6. Umai (16 votes)
7. Kompia (14 votes)
8. Serung Dayak Soup (13 votes)
9. Dabai (12 votes)
10. Foochow Mee (12 votes)
Of all these I only had no. 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 9 and 10 before but I love Kolo Mee the best 😛 Yup, most Sarawakian LOVE Kolo Mee and Sarawak Laksa, we really can’t live without them. Those who are in West Malaysia or foreign countries would surely say they miss these two local food 😀 Besides these, I want to add one more recommendation below
Lui Cha! Its made up of rice and lots and lots of vegetable! Soup made from herbs which is quite bitter and some people couldn’t stand it, same concept as “Smelly Tauhu” I suppose haha but I love it <3 Try it as a challenge, you dare? >3
