A bowl of laksa Sarawak consists of noodles [fine wheat flour vermicelli] a handful of large, fresh bean sprouts and most importantly the hot and spicy laksa gravy. The doused noodles are normally garnished with generous helpings of sliced omelets, fresh prawns and shredded chicken breast. The whole thing is topped-off with a garnish of coriander leaves. And it is served to you with chopsticks and a soup spoon. Before you start on your laksa, you will notice a small bowl containing a lime and a teaspoonful of mysterious brown paste – belacan, a dried and fermented puree of shrimp. This pungent mix is then poured into the laksa and gently agitated with the chopsticks to ensure an even distribution.
