Recommend your favourite laksa stall for grading
By Mabel Sim

KUCHING: The Sarawak Tourism Board (STB) is calling for all Sarawak Laksa lovers to recommend their favourite stalls, especially those in and around Kuching, for grading by Singapore’s food ambassador Moses Lim.

Open in new window
THE TASTER: Lim will be tasting Sarawak Laksa for the ‘Sarawak Laksa Escapade’ tour.

The grading is part of STB’s initiative to identify selected Sarawak Laksa stalls which Lim will recommend for the four-day three-night ‘Sarawak Laksa Escapade’ tour.

Locals who want their favourite stall graded by Lim are to email letitia@sarawaktourism.com under the heading ‘My Recommended Laksa Stall’.

The email should include the stall’s name, full address and contact number (if available). Suggestions should reach STB by March 10.

Lim, a well known television celebrity in Singapore, is scheduled to be in Kuching from March 14 for a laksa recce.

During the recce, Lim will try different laksas for recommendation to tourists on the escapade.

All the stalls Lim recommends will be given a plaque and will be included in the ‘Sarawak Laksa Escapade’ tour itinerary.

The tour, which was introduced in the republic recently, has received an overwhelming response from Lim’s followers, who snapped up the offer in just a short period after it was advertised.

The first group of 25 Laksa enthusiasts will arrive in the city on April 30, with Lim leading the way.

The idea of the ‘Sarawak Laksa Escapade’, offered by the Singapore-based Konsortium Express and Tours Pte Ltd, was suggested by STB chief executive officer Gracie Geikie to the tour company.

It is part of STB’s marketing campaign aimed at attracting more Singaporean tourists to Sarawak.

Taking that cue, Konsortium Express and Tours roped in Lim to promote the tour among his many followers, who usually participate in his culinary trips worldwide.

Last year, more than 34,000 tourists from Singapore visited Sarawak and the number is expected to increase this year, especially with the many direct flights available from the republic to Kuching.

Currently, the direct flights are operated by Malaysia Airlines, Silk Air, Air Asia, Jetstar Asia Airways and Tiger Airways, with 7,800 seats available each week.

if Lim is a smoker,he wont made a good laksa taster.a good bona fide taster must be a non-smoker,so that his/her taste bud are still very sensitive to sweetness or saltiness.

U forgot 1 think dory, singapore's laksa coconut milk is so thick that you feel like drinking coconut milk more than the original taste of laksa. But we have to respect other country's cuisine as well cause' not all connoisseur agree with the taste of the dish, especially when it comes to portion, spices used and taste.

Anyway, sarawak laksa rocks! best in the world? :D

Amen bytez, best in the world indeed! Just look at the way our laksa paste is prepared, and you know there isn't another in the world that can compete.

Maozi's choice of Laksas in Kuching:
1) Fat Cat (Stutong) laksa, decent RM3.50, visit early, finishes way before noon.

2) Foody Goody (Stutong) laksa, notoriously delicious due to addition of belachan into the soup, available till noon.

3) The Grace Place (Stutong, beside AM Bank) laksa, even added slices of "sng-kit" (lime) directly into the soup!

4) Joo Him (a middle shop behind RHB opposite The Spring) laksa, big portion and thick flavorful soup!

5) Ah Xing (literally Ah Star) laksa, a corner shop behind Sekama (at Lido's side, exact location unknown), "kung-fu" laksa, as the boss cooks in such a "serious", "fast-paced", and "down-right-funny" way~

6) Ah Yu (literally Ah Friend) laksa, a middle shop behind Sekama, the name of the Kopitiam I remember is something about "good taste" or such.

7) Lau Ya Keng laksa, opposite Aladdin in Carpenter Street.

8) Tiang's Cafe laksa, the famous Barette laksa, at Bormill.

9) Siang Siang corner Hui Sing's laksa stall.

10) Green Hill Corner (corner shop opposite Star Cineplex) laksa.

Etc, too many~
