Sarawak Laksa @ Tommy's, Mont Kiara, KL



Last night, I did some digging through my photo archives and pulled out this picture I took long long ago. It's so long ago that this was from my old Sony camera before it was cruelly snatched away from me (Sniff!).

This quiet little cafe was discovered long ago as one of my friends went for a party there. If it wasn't for her recommendation, I doubt I would have found it since it's at the quieter side of Mont Kiara where the new apartments like Bayu, Aman, Astana and Damai are located. Since these apartments are kinda far away from the Shoplex area which houses the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, they are trying to create an area there for residents to grab their daily items.

The food here is pretty good and the menu has mainly western items such as Lamb Shank which was very nice and Lasagna plus pastas. The few times I ate there, most of their patrons were Japanese who stayed around the area. Besides the tender Lamb Shank, I really love their Sarawak Laksa. It's an interesting intepretation of the classic which will probably have those who love the original howling in protest. Instead of the usual curry broth it is served in, this is served like a pasta (linguine) with a creamy sauce flavoured with the laksa herbs. It's pretty mild and not too creamy. They also add the must haves in any Sarawak Laksa - the shredded chicken, omelette strips and the tiger prawns.

The last time I ate here, what made it extra special was they also had a promotion of free desserts with your meal. It's no longer available which is quite sad but it was a good way to introduce their cakes which they bake themselves. We liked their carrot cake which comes with cream cheese in the center and is served warm. If you're around the area whether for work or pleasure, do give them a try. They also deliver take out to the nearby apartments.

Pass the shoplex which is where Coffee Bean is located, take the third right turning where Mont Kiara Bayu is located, the Aman Walk is located on your left hand side. You can park at Mont Kiara Bayu's visitor car park and walk up to this place. It's right above Kiara Supermarket.)

cream cheese in the centre of the carrot cake? can you please describe it a bit more...interesting concept. how ah? like molten ah? or split cake with frosting in between?

Howl!!!! Howling in protest here! How can they serve it in that kind of sauce and call it Sarawak Laksa? Sigh.....

Anyway, can't blame my howling here cos I went to Nam Chuan's today for authentic Sarawak Laksa only to be greeted by a sign that says "Dear Customer, we will be closed from 12/10 till 22/10".

Howl!!

toniXe said...

pablopabla, I couldn't agree with you more !

They shouldn't call it Sarawak Laksa then !(sorry Boo..)

Jackson said...

wow....Sarawak Laksa taste like pasta with creamy sauce? interesting....

boo_licious said...

rasa malaysia - yeah, same here. Big or tiger prawns are always my fav.

peetee - you must be a regular. Teriyaki chicken wings sounds delicious too.

fatboybakes - it's possible since you can bake cheese. Same concept like the black bottom cake whereby they add one layer of cream cheese.

pablopabla - oooops! Yeah, I can imagine all those Sarawakians blasting me too but hey, this is their version. Awww, Nam Chuan is closed - her laksa is nice. I also like the one in Taman Megah, not as nicely presented but their sambal belachan is so gooood!

hazy skye - wow! Do they credit where the pixs come from or just chuck them in the mail?

fulltime mom - could you send me the email, better check it out to see what it's all abt. Thxs so much.

raptor4eva - eh, Japanese food also gets my saliva drooling as their food is super yummy.

tonixe - aiyah, their version mah. Wow, I like yr Kampung Koh coverage, very droolworthy food.

jackson - guess this is the modern version but I thought it was innovative.

Boo, emailed the email I received to you. Unfortunately (this time around), this was a clean forward. Two ways of looking at it, some horrid people stole your hardwork, but the other view is that the photos were so good, someone felt the need to share them. :)
