Depot Pub @ Petaling Jaya

Depot’s Sarawakian founders are clearly proud of their roots, with small flags of their home state flying above the entrance and behind the counter.

The pub’s main founder, Cindy, is from the Lun Bawang indigenous community of Lawas town; her menu includes a few noodle-based nods to Sarawak, including basic mee kolo (RM10) and mee goreng basah (RM12). There’s also a Depot Laksa (RM15) that’s not exactly the Sarawak laksa we know and love; the broth features a different spice mix with less depth and more creaminess. Still, this is one of the Klang Valley’s rare spots in the Klang Valley where you can wash down your laksa with tuak; alternatively, pair a Tiger with the Hornbill treats.

It’s probably best to come to Depot on weekends, when Lun Bawang specialities like babi belacan are available - Sundays are supposed to be especially festive, with the crowd coming in after church.

  1. Yes, I thought that looked a bit like our Foochow fried noodles but the laksa seemed like a disaster. :D
