This month’s Malaysian Food Fest brings us to Sarawak and this is really quite a challenge for me as I’d never been to East Malaysia, let alone sample the delicacies over there. From the more asli fanfare of Pansuh Ayam to the more familiar Sarawak Laksa, Sarawak is not short of good food. Problem is, I’d never had a chance to sample any of these. Unlike their Penang and Melakan counterparts, sarawakian cuisine isn’t very well represented over here in Singapore, with only a sparse speckling of shops selling Kolok Mee and even then, the authenticity of their renditions are in question, probably highly adapted and colloquialised to suit the local tastebuds. Alas, I turn to recipe books for help and thankfully, good recipes of Sarawak culinary delights are fairly well documented and published! Thus I embark on my Sarawak food journey with a popular hawker fare, Belachan Bee Hoon.
