The Dark Side of Secret Recipe




Sarawak Laksa from Wikipedia: Sarawak laksa comes from the town of Kuching in the Malaysian state Sarawak, on the island of Borneo. It is actually very different from the curry laksa as the soup contains no curry in its ingredient at all. It has a base of Sambal belacan, sour tamarind, garlic, galangal, lemon grass and coconut milk, topped with omelette strips, chicken strips, prawns, fresh coriander and optionally lime. Ingredients such as bean sprouts, (sliced) fried tofu or other seafood are not traditional but are sometimes added.



Dear Secret Recipe,

Next time if you want to add a new menu to your list, please please please Google it first. Don’t simply change the originality, and give a bad impression of Sarawak Laksa to others. Heh, if there are decreasing of Sarawak Laksa sales in Sarawak rite now, I’ll blame you!

You describe it as:
indulge in this authentic flavor from Sarawak. Served with prawns and chicken slices over an aromatic laksa base.


But you served me with this.


Oh my GoD! Kataaaa authentic... Tipu la awak ni.

Your big mistakes ARE:

+*Too much coconut milk sampai the kuah turns up jadi white color macam Laksam Kelantan*+

+*Bukan ke Sarawak Laksa supposed to be a bihun? Pandai nye Secret Recipe nie kan?*+


+*Boiled eggs??? Hello, learn from Wikipedia, it's supposed to be
omelette strips aka hirisan TELUR DADAR la sayang…*+


+*Lastly, the heart of Sarawak Laksa is its sambal. Tak ramai (even Sarawakian themselves) boleh buat dengan sedap, tapi at least tak replace the sambal belacan with the this Nasi Lemak punya sambal! Sigh.*+

And it costs me RM16.50 before tax! Aduiiyai. Boleyh dapat 4 mangkuk kalau makan kat Tinot Laksa.

Kalau Encik Secret Recipe nak belajar detail lagi, Sarawak Laksa versi Shirley pun available here. Sila gunakan perencah Laksa Haji Manan ye, halalan toyyiba dan sedaaaaappppp sangat!


Yang benar,
Pencinta Makanan, terutama your Durian Cheese Cake.

Heh, I duduk jauh-jauh di perantauan and craving for Sarawak Laksa, so bila jumpa menu ni dekat Secret Recipe, sangat teruja giler. Enthusiasm, but end up disappointed!

Sekian, Kamsahamida~

FurFLe notes: Boleyh je masak sendiri dekat rumah, tapi tak de masa sebab busy bergolek-golek depan lappy layan drama Korea.
