Jalan Petanak, 93450 Kuching, Sarawak

Operation Hours: 7am - 12pm

Madam Tang’s serves the usual laksa Sarawak, but with a wide range of toppings and sizes. They also cater nasi lemak, kolo mee and beef noodles which are extra scrumptious as well.

Madam Tang’s looks like any other kopitiam with an ambience almost like Ipoh Oldtown White Coffee.

A must-have is the Laksa Sarawak, a signature dish in Kuching. The bowl of Laksa topped with prawns, chicken slices, omelette strips and bean sprouts is served in a fragrant spicy coconut milk soup with a side of sambal belacan and lime.

Prices range from RM5.80 (classic) to RM13.80 for the special version. There are also other choices to choose from, including beef noodle, a traditional dish with braised beef. This type of laksa is quite different to the common types of curry or asam laksa as it contains sambal belacan (a chilli shrimp paste). A squeeze of lime into the belacan paste mixed into the Sarawak laksa and you’re good to go.
