Salted @ Bandar Utama

Straight from Sarawak, Salted is a food stall run by Mr & Mrs Chai from Kuching, serving two specialities from their state - Sarawak Laksa, boasting firm-to-the-bite, thicker-than-usual rice vermicelli submerged in a savoury broth made with Kuching-produced paste (plus a few extra secret ingredients added by Mrs Chai), blanketed with prawns, cuttlefish, shredded chicken, bean sprouts & omelette strips (RM8.90 for a regular portion, RM13.90 for a somewhat larger), & Beehoon Belacan, a recipe that's an acquired taste, with vermicelli, cucumber & cuttlefish in a love-it-or-loathe-it gravy totally imbued with the fermented sweetness of shrimp paste (RM6.90), ideally consumed with century eggs for a moderated balance of pungent flavours (RM3).

  1. That bowl of Sarawak laksa looks good, like the real thing. Wait a minute! Cuttlefish? Nothing of the sort in the authentic ones but of course, one can add anything one wants - like mine, with mussels and squid and all. Hehehehehehe!!!!

    Not into belacan bee hoon - the one I came across did not smell good, probably due to the quality of the belacan. So put off that I never tried to this day. Popular in Kuching, not found here in Sibu.

    1. Suituapui: heheh, it's nice how sarawak laksa is quite customisable ... i think i'd like to have hard-boiled eggs in mine :D to be honest, i'm also not a fan of belacan bee hoon ... but i'd happily have two bowls of the laksa :D

  2. OMG! I have been craving for that for ages! :)

    They call it Belacan Bee Hoon in Kuching.

    I used to work at Jalan Padungan and Song Kheng Hai rugby field is just beside my ex-office so I ate a lot of Belacan Bee Hoon. It's a local dish and it's very nice, would love to have it again.

    Thanks for sharing. I'll be sure to pop by, this is very authentic Kuching style dishes. I can't wait to try them out.

    1. Huai Bin: yay, hopefully you'll enjoy Salted! i'm not sure i'd wanna have beehoon belacan again though ... it definitely feels like an acquired taste! though it did partner well with the century eggs :D

  3. Laksa - yes please! But the Beehoon Belacan doesn't sound quite as enticing. ;-)

  4. Hmmm, so one is supposed to have the pungent belacan noodles with the equally pungent century eggs...ok, bring on the pungent! :D

    1. Contact.ewew: heheh, i guess since they're pungent in different ways, they work OK together. the century eggs helps to actually tone down the strong flavour of the belacan noodles :)

  5. Uhhh.. I couldn't take that belacan bee hoon either! :P

    1. Rebecca: heh, guess we don't have the right taste buds for the bee hoon belacan. or maybe we should have started eating it at a younger age :)
