This may sound like a promotional post, but the intention here is to help those of you abroad (out of Sarawak), and I am not paid for this post, although if I was, that would be more than exceptional.
You see, I often hear friends and family members say how they miss Laksa Sarawak when they are away from Sarawak or home, or Laksa Sarawak sold in their areas are largely poor if taste and quality.
Well, I’ve found a way to fix that, and it’s not too expensive either.
Introducing the Lee Fah Mee instant Laksa Sarawak!
I’ve passed by shops selling this instant noodles countless times, and I finally decided to buy a packet one fine day.
The packet is huge, almost like the ‘mee kosong’ sort of packaging Lee Fah usually has, with four seasoning packets and mihun (rice vermicelli) packed into together as you can see above.
The issue really is that once you open the mihun pack, you need to keep the mihun and the seasoning pack separately, and you know how these things tend to get lost. Not mentioning the additional need to repackage or close up the mihun package once you have opened the big Laksa Sarawak package. I know, and air tight container would do, but having individual packets would be better and more convenient.
isn’t small sized like the typical instant noodles you buy. I’m not sure why Lee Fah Mee decided to use a huge long packaging, instead of individual packaging like Maggi.
Cooking this instant Laksa Sarawak takes more time than your typical instant noodles, with the mihun (rice vermicelli) needing around three minutes to cook.
Once three minutes is done, the paste and mihun needs to be cooked together for another 5 minutes.
Well, as you can see, once cooked, it looks much like Laksa Sarawak kosong, but I can vouch that it’s the closest so far to the real thing for an instant noodle. Add in lime, and it would taste even better!
So friends, if you crave Laksa Sarawak when away, packing this one in your luggage is the definite ssolution.
