[Food Review] Sarawak Laksa at Kedey Kamek SS2

There seems to be a boom in Sarawakian cuisine readily available here. Kedey Kamek has been a time long presence here with several outlets in TTDI, Bangi and Kuching. Kedey Kamek is as authentic as they get with a team hailing from East Malaysia, from Kuching and Miri. Its name was in fact Sarawakian for 'my shop'. 
And recently they just opened up their latest outlet in SS2 Petaling Jaya. Curious to check out this new place, I headed there on the day after their opening. Their menu was quite extensive with choices of unusual Sarawakian cuisine that aren't usually found here. But of course, for me, the best way to tell how good their food is by trying the Sarawak Laksa. 

Many places do serve Sarawak Laksa but ended up serving it with the wrong noodles. This place I can say does it right. FYI for the uninitiated, Sarawak Laksa comes with vermicelli noodles rather than meehoon in a broth of 20 over spices. Kedey Kamek's basic bowl of Sarawak Laksa was pretty good without too much oil and enough spices to give it a kick. They also have other versions of seafood if prawn is not to your liking. 

They have Linut - a melanau cuisine, made by mixing sago flour and water. It was served sambal belacan, making for a savoury dessert. Eating it was quite an experience due to its glue-like texture, which ended with more sambal belacan on the table than on the linut. Needless to say, it was an interesting end to my dining experience at Kedey Kamek. 

Kedey Kamek opens the doors to introducing the uninitiated to Sarawak Cuisine - more than just Sarawak Laksa and does it well. And best of all, they are easily accessible at their new outlet in SS2 Petaling Jaya.
