Sarawak Laksa seems like the flavor of the year, so before the end of 2017 I decided to give yet another highly recommended Sarawak Laksa place a try – SALTed at Mutiara Damansara.

As it turns out SALTed does stand for something – Sarawak Authentic Local Taste Extra Delicious!

The restaurant is located quite deep within Mutiara Damansara, and while it is perhaps only 5 minutes away from IKEA and Curve, you can’t really get there by walking from the big furniture shop.

The Sarawak laksa comes in three different versions, basic (RM 6) comes with chicken stripes but no prawns, original (RM 9) comes with normal prawns, and special (RM 15) gets you some cuttlefish as well as three pretty large size sea caught “meng har” (明虾) prawns.

I went for the “special” and happy to report that the dish definitely did not disappoint. The broth was thick and flavorful, and the seafood perfectly compliments the meehun and all other ingredients. I also enjoyed the pretty hot sambal as well. Will definitely put this in place in my list of recommendations (which I need to create, I think)

Other than laksa Sarawak, the restaurant also offers kolo mee, belacan meehun, and mee Jawa Sarawak. .My mission was only for the laksa, so no I did not try any of these dishes.

Discuss : KY eats – Sarawak Laksa at SALTed, Mutiara Damansara

  1. Can’t say I like the name – not into salt that much and no msg, that’s for sure. Laksa looks good. Those prawns that size cost a bomb!

  2. I was with you until I saw the kolo mee without pork. How can this be possible? At least laksa is naturally pork free.

  3. In Kuching there are many types of kolo Mee toppings besides pork. Beef kolo Mee is one of the favourites. Give SALTed kolo Mee a try before judging 🙂

  4. KY, it must be very hard to say no to other dishes since they look so good. I would also . The prawns and cutterfish special laksa is indeed special.

  5. eh near myoffice. can give it a try liau

  6. what is mee jawa sarawak ? why the name is mee jawa sarawak?
    fyi jawa is the name of island in my country

    • sherly: It’s a bit like mee rebus actually. I’m guessing it’s the sarawak’s interpretation of that dish. I’ve never had it before.
