Sarawak Laksa & Kolo Mee @ Taman Megah

One of the food that a Sarawakian can't live without would be the famous Laksa Sarawak, I can assure you that. Sarawak Laksa tastes nothing like the Penang Laksa, Johor Laksa or whatever Laksa you have out there. Its taste is really one of a kind that I can't find a way to describe it. I guess you have to try it to know it. For my case, I only get to fly back home maybe twice a year so constantly I have this huge craving for Laksa Sarawak which I can hardly get here in KL. Thank God for this stall in Taman Megah, I get to fulfill my cravings yesterday, like finally.

I heard that this couple who operates this stall originates from Kuching and hence bringing this well-known Sarawakian specialty all the way from the east. 

Sarawak Kolo Mee @ RM4.50 (small) topped with slices of char siew and minced pork. 

Uncle, Y U NO put vege and spring onions one?

But overall, the kolo mee tasted really authentic like the one you can get in Sarawak. Even the noodles are exactly the same, the egg noodles from Sarawak. It's not like those typical noodles you have for wantan mee. The elastic and springy texture of the noodles is definitely the oomph.  It's fragrant and flavourful to my liking, not too oily as well. It would be even better if it's served with the sour vinegar chili YUMS I would give a two thumbs up for this! (Y)(Y) I realised that most of the patrons that goes to this coffee shop order this kolo mee, so it must be undeniably good. Even Joeann who tried this for the first time likes it :D

And not forgetting, Laksa Sarawak *tears of joy* You have no idea how happy I was!
Served with shredded omelette and chicken, bite-sized prawns and vermicelli (beehoon). You can opt to have the laksa with the egg noodles as well. But then, why no bean sprouts? T_T

Of course, it wouldn't be complete without the sambal belacan and lime. I must say, the sambal belacan tasted like the original one as well, impressive! 

Generous amount of thick shredded omelette ♥♥♥

And as for the broth, it was okay. Wish it would be a tad more thicker, couldn't compare with those back at home in terms of flavour and aroma but I've got no complains, still good enough to satisfy my cravings! *rubs tummy* 

Somehow the price keeps increasing every year :s 
Located opposite Ming Tien foodcourt, same row as Key Hiong Dimsum and Famous Amos (: 
Besides Taman Megah, I heard that there's a few places that sell Sarawak Laksa too like Restaurant Nam Chuan @ Bangsar Lucky Garden and Wangsa Maju . I'll definitely hunt for them one day. Now I no longer need to worry not having Sarawak Laksa to eat HO YEAH

Even writing this post makes me craving for it again T_T I'll definitely coming back again, but bringing few of my friends next time. How can I not introduce them this awesome food ┌ (˘⌣˘) ┐ Kolo Mee and Sarawak Laksa FTW!!

Hey.. Big fan of Sarawak LAKSA as well man.. I'm not sure how it taste but the presentation (the look) of that bowl of laksa ain't that interesting compared to the one in Kuching. What you think?
