Laksa Sarawak

I thought I've posted this recipe before but I couldn't find it. Either I forgot to post it or I have not been making this for a long time. This was our breakfast today and it is one of my hubby's favourite noodles. The Sarawak Laksa is not similar to any type of Laksa from Peninsular either from the look or taste wise. It has quite a distinct spice flavour but once you are used to it, it can be addictive....hehe.

I learned how to enjoy Laksa Sarawak from my friend S, when we were close together way back in 1998. I wish you all the best in your new life.
