Sarawak Delicacy Laksa & Kolo Mee Review
Sarawak Delicacy Laksa & Kolo Mee is one of Singapore’s most popular places for Sarawak Food. A typical waiting time of 45minutes and finish usually by 12.30 pm on the weekend based on my experience.
The Sarawak Laksa broth taste and ingredients used were great except for the thin rice vermicelli.
For me, all Sarawak Laksa that does not use the thicker rice vermicelli is an immediate turn-off. The Kolo mee tasted like the one I had in Kuching, Sarawak but the noodle was a tad bit overcooked.
Things I like
- The taste is close to the one in Sarawak
- Serve a variety of Sarawak dish; Sarawak laksa, kolo mee, kampua mee, wonton and mee sua.
- Choice of Sarawak Laksa rice vermicelli (To use a thicker version)
- Service speed to reduce the waiting time
Sarawak Delicacy Laksa & Kolo Mee – Food & Price
Sarawak Delicacy’s Sarawak Laksa has a few different sizes, normal ($5) and big ($7).
A typical bowl of Sarawak Laksa contains rice vermicelli, beansprouts, prawns, chicken breast, egg, calamansi, coriander, chili paste, and the highlight of the dish which is the broth.
The taste of Sarawak Laksa broth has a fine balance of aromatic herbs and spices with a subtle hint of sourish and spicy notes.
I like that the ingredients are all fresh and prepared nicely. The Broth flavor was spot on and is not as spicy as others. It was quite a disappointment for me to find out that they use the thin rice vermicelli.
I understand some like it, but it sucks up all the broth which is the main highlight of the dish. It also changes the whole texture of the broth and noodle combine which puts off my experience with this bowl of Laksa.
Their Sarawak belacan has a prawn flavor to it but lacks richness.
Aside from their Sarawak Laksa, we also order the original kolo mee ($5).
The original kolo mee comes with noodles fried shallot oil, garlic, and soya sauce. It is then top with minced pork, char siew, green onion, white pepper, and cut chili.
The char siu was sweet and tender while the minced pork was properly seasoned.
However, the noodle felt a tad bit overcooked which caused the texture in the middle to be a little soggy.
Sarawak Delicacy Laksa & Kolo Mee Service
The first time I came here at 12pm on a Saturday, the Sarawak Laksa was sold out by 12.15 pm. With the typical waiting time of 45minutes, I suggest reaching here no later than 11.15 am.
You could also place an online order here for self-pick-up or dine-in.
