  • I really miss my hometown food while living in Kl. I 've been living in KL for 12 years but i always feel excited like a kid when coming home because of the food. i cannot replace the taste with all the food in Semenanjung. Probably the taste already blended in my gene. There are lot more to try (some of my fave):
    1. nasi goreng dabai, Can eat the buah dabai alone.
    2. ikan terubok masin
    3. laksa sarawak / kolo mee - a must have after touchdown. ;)
    4. mi goreng crispy with tomato gravy
    5. local dessert (kuih tradisi) - celorot, kuih rangin, pugang (lemang w/o santan), hati pari,
    6. local cucumber leaves - fry alone or mix with baby corn. It tastes sweet
    7. fairlady - special drink only can be found in kuching.
    8. kueh chap - its a black soupy noodle, non halal because use pork
    9. umai jellyfish - preparation same as the umai ikan
    10. mee jawa (almost like mee rebus in johor)

    Most of these food can be found in kuching. Please try if visit kuching.

  • they all look so yum! My top pick when I visit would be red wine mee suah, kek lapis and midin ^^ all also have not tried before !! ^^

  • Thanks for this great list! I've been to Sarawak only a couple of times and have eaten a number of these dishes but not all of them. This list certainly comes in handy for my next trip to Sarawak!

  • Thanks for compiling all the top 10 food must try in Sarawak! Haven't been to there before =) Seeing all the food makes me feel hungry!

  • I can't wait for my trip back to Sarawak, probably next year... I want to try all the food also...
