Sarawak Kueh Chap - 砂劳越粿雜

Oh no!!! Updates on 24/4/09: Got to know that business wasn't so good at Kelana Jaya. This stall has been relocated to somewhere I don't know.

For an option, visit Sun Hing Loong at SS2:
Small portion | Big portion

If you really want to satisfy your cravings for kueh chap (not necessarily Sarawak's), try Teochew Kueh Chap at
Auntie Sim (opposite Uptown 1 at Damansara Uptown).

Sarawak Kueh Chap is a famous Sarawak local favorite. If you happen to go to Sarawak, you must remember to try Mi Kolok or Kampua (some people say that they are different), Sarawak Laksa, and Sarawak Beef Beehoon. You can't find them all the time in Klang Valley. However, you can find authentic Sarawak Laksa at Restoran Gembira, Taman Megah, PJ.

Indeed, it's a miracle to find good Sarawakian dishes in Klang Valley. If I come across one, I shall give it a try! So, I've my first Sarawak Kueh Chap in 5 years at Kelana Jaya!

So, what's so great about Sarawak Kueh Chap? Let's talk about its soup base in the first place, it tastes like mild Bak Kut Teh. The noodles are squarish, flat, and flimsy rice noodles. They are not as thick as Pan Mee's noodles that are made from flour. And of course, you'll find a generous amount of taufoo pok (dried tauhu), pork slices (with a layer of fat & skin), intestines, tongue, and ear slices. Sounds yucky? LOL! It certainly is non-halal. For pork lovers, Kueh Chap is made in heaven. ;) No spring onions, but a small handful of fried chopped garlic is strewn delightfully as garnishing! Yummy! I love this dish to bits!


Map is included below. The blocks marked as A & B are actually Universiti Tun Abdul Razak. You'll see a Chinese restaurant located at the corner of a block across the road, to the left of Sekolah Menengah Kelana Jaya. This restaurant is always crowded with people from morning till late afternoon. It's almost impossible for you to miss it.


Good luck!

Update: Check out my second visit!
