Rumah Asap Borneo KL @ Cheras

Specialities from Sarawak seize centre stage at this new venue - on Saturdays & Sundays, customers can relish the taste of firm-favourite vegetables like cangkuk manis, kemiding & daun empasa, while throughout the week, umai udang (the Land of the Hornbills' version of a spicy ceviche) & kasam babi (a stew with punchy preserved flavours) evoke the time-honoured flavours of Bornean villages. And of course, you'll find versions of kolo mee (a guilty indulgence) & laksa Sarawak (abounding with gentle nuances of spices), plus an assortment of classic snacks, coming as close to Kuching as we might get in KL.

    1. Twilight Man: you're right, it's a chewy sort of dessert that does evoke some malay and nyonya traditional kuih! :D
