Sarawak Laksa – Restoran Aunty Christina Laksa

37170163870_7f90eba26b_o

Aunty Christina was only operating a small stall inside a Kopitiam in Lucky Garden in Bangsar for many decades and I have eaten her Sarawak Laksa many times already.

Only recently she moved her business to her own premises in Sea Park which I finally got a chance to locate her restaurant and once again eating her awesome Sarawak Laksa. The menu was pretty simple and another thing that caught my eyes was the special dish of Hakka Abacus Seeds which I could not resist to make an order. Being a Hakka myself how can I not eat them. The Abacus was just as awesome and full of flavors.

I believe this is a closely knitted family business as everyone was so friendly and busy at the same time. I managed to get a glimpse of Aunty Christina in the kitchen busy preparing and cooking her dishes. All hands on by herself.

The Sarawak Laksa is also just as good. Not so spicy but very flavorful.

We had to try the Nasi Lemak because it’s a common food in Malaysia and everyone eats it. Here it’s best to go with the Ayam Goreng Berempah.

Just 2 of us and we shared 3 items. Totally satisfying meal and for dessert we had the Durian soft ice-cream. Buy one free one. Yummy!

There are two components of Charlie’s mission. Behind the scenes in the kitchen, the Borneo-born Sonny & Debra employ mainly folks from East Malaysia & try to use a fair bit of indigenous produce for their menu. Secondly, for customers who want to help out, a pay-it-forward sponsored-meals system is available: Give the cashier RM5, take a receipt & post it on the board; other people who come in can claim a free meal using your receipt if they’re short of cash or struggling to make ends meet.

Must remember to ask locals where you can get really good authentic laksa. In my case the hotel I was staying was a stone’s throw away to the restaurant. Really good laksa.

Besides the Sarawak laksa the Kolo mee is also very good and not forgetting the popiah which is crunchy when you bite into it. I would always eat this 3 types of food whenever i am in the cafe.
