Sarawak Noodles @ Hou Wong Kopitiam, KL

We love Sarawak laksa, so a couple of weeks ago, we visited Hou Wong Kopitiam in Jalan Ipoh to to satisfy our cravings.

When we arrived at the restaurant, we only spotted a pan mee stall. But they still had the banner outside the shop showing "Sarawak Noodles". We panicked, thinking "oh no, is the stall shut today?" Turns out their stall / kitchen is at the back and someone will come take your order at the table.

The menu, stuck on the wall inside the restaurant.

We decided to order 1 Sarawak laksa (RM6.50 for small) and 1 Kolo Mee  (RM5.50 for small) to share. Other Sarawak delicacies you can find here include kuey teow goreng, mee goreng, zhou cai fen gan, tom yum big head prawn, mee Dawai and kueh chap (available on weekend only). 

First impressions when the food arrived was that the Sarawak laksa looked authentic. And it certainly did not disappoint in the taste department either. The soup was really tasty (we drank it all!), and the bowl consisted of thick beehoon, sliced omelette, beansprouts, and two prawns. 

For the Sarawak kolo mee, we were asked if we wanted the "red" or "white" version. We went for the red version. Again, this was a delicious bowl of noodles - thin egg noodles topped with minced pork, char siew and pork lard. This was served with some pickled red chillies and a bowl of clear soup.

Since we came all the way here for breakfast (and we had some tummy space left), we thought, why not order another bowl of Sarawak laksa to share. Do remember to squeeze in the lime as it really enhances the taste of the soup.

We will be back!

  1. Yes, the moment I saw your photos, mu guess would be those people must be from Kuching. That's Kuching kolo mee - I catually prefer it to our Sibu kampua mee...and Kuching people would insist that is Kuching laksa, not Sarawak laksa. I call it Sarawak laksa all the time. regardless. Hehehehe!!!
