As there is a sizeable Sarawakian community in Singapore, we can get authentic Sarawak cuisine here. I checked out 3 popular Sarawak food stalls for kolo mee and Sarawak laksa picked by Sarawakians in Singapore.
TASTE OF SARAWAK NATIONAL DAY LUCKY DRAW
From today (3 Aug) till 9 Aug, these 3 stalls are celebrating Singapore National Day with a lucky draw organised by Sarawak Trade and Tourism Co. Pte. Ltd. (STATOS) with prizes of up to $1,000 Sheng Siong shopping vouchers.
Sarawak Kolo Mee is a comfort dish, a staple that is synonymous with Sarawak. It’s a mound of egg noodles in a blended sauce of lard, aromatic shallot oil, and soy sauce topped with sauteed minced pork, stewed-type char siew slices, fried shallot and chopped spring onion. The dish comes with a clear pork soup and optional chili sauce.
林玉梅 Lin Yu Mei Kolo Mee | 14 Haig Road Food Centre #01-33 Singapore S430014
I like Lin Yu Mei’s kolo mee because the curly noodles have their own tender springy crunch in a way different from wanton mee, bak chor mee or ramen. Lin Yu Mei’s savoury lardy sauce gets a sharp zingy spicy spike from their house made chili sauce which made their rendition of kolo mee stand out.
JJ Sarawak Noodles | Blk 504 Jurong West St. 51 Singapore S640504
The mound of curly noodles in JJ Sarawak Noodles rendition of kolo mee come fully hidden under the thick carpet of minced pork, char siew slices and fried wanton.
If you are looking for a crunchy kolo mee with robust savoury lardy sauce (like me), then JJ Sarawak Noodles’ version is for you (and me 😄 ).
If you are a curry laksa fan, then you have to try the Sarawak version of this spicy dish. Same same laksa in name but the selection of spices and resulting taste profile is very different yet very easy to like. Must try lah.
Sarawak Delicacy Laksa & Kolo Mee | Blk 204 Bedok North Street 1 #01-435, Singapore S460204
Sarawak Delicacy Laksa & Kolo Mee stall @ Bedok Blk 204 coffee shop serves a delicious Sarawak laksa. It is bee hoon (rice vermicelli) in a bowl of fiery looking spiced coconut milk. The coconut milk has just the right richness and taste which are saturated with well balanced, complementary savoury sweet and spicy spice flavours and aromas. Eat the laksa with Sarawak belacan which add robust crustacean umami flavour to balance the coconut milk sweetness in the curry.
Try the kolo mee and Sarawak laksa at these 3 food stalls which are curated by Sarawakians as among the best in Singapore serving the taste of Sarawak.
