Sarawak Laksa at SALTed: Prawns, chicken and cuttlefish galore

Sarawak Laksa with extra prawns and cuttlefish.

Sarawak Laksa is becoming increasingly popular across Malaysia and the version sold at SALTed, a restaurant in Mutiara Damansara comes highly recommended.

As it turns out SALTed is the abbreviation for Sarawak Authentic Local Taste Extra Delicious.

The restaurant called SALTed meaning ‘Sarawak Authentic Local Taste Extra Delicious’ in Mutiara Damansara.

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

The Sarawak Laksa here comes in three different versions – basic with chicken strips only; original with normal-sized prawns; and special with cuttlefish as well as three pretty large-sized sea-caught “meng har” prawns.

If you feel like splurging, opt for the “special” because it is definitely worth every sen. The broth is thick and flavourful, and the seafood perfectly complements the mee hoon and other ingredients.

The hot sambal served with the Sarawak Laksa is just as delicious as the main meal.
