CLOSED : Kafe Rajah Brooke – The Most Authentic Sarawak Foods in Klang Valley


How do you define authentic food from a particular stall or restaurant? For anything that come with “Penang DISH NAME”. I will first approach them and speak Penang Hokkien directly.  For Sarawakian food, I guess you should go with the Kuching local Hakka slang.

I previously really curious to try the local food taste of Sarawakian foods. All I got is just Kolo mee in Taman Megah at first. Now we got a restaurant that focus in authentic Sarawak foods. The shop is called Kafe Rajah Brooke. Just by the name alone already tells you it is Sarawak related. Those that never study about Malaysian history probably won’t know about this.

Kafe Rajah Brooke is run by 100% Sarawak people. It was established by husband and wife (Kenneth and Yvonne) who love Sarawakian foods a lot. They just have a simple goal which is to share the good food to the public or some of the Sarawak people who reside in Klang Valley.

    O.o This place is in Kuchai Lama and I live around this area but haven’t heard about it. Is it new? Coz I left KL last September. Will definitely visit this place after I return to KL. The photo of Rajah Brooke actually reminded me of reading my sejarah book long time ago…

    Just tried the food at Rajah Brooke, I went for the Sarawak Laksa and Kolo Mee.
    I’m a Sarawakian, from Kuching to be more specific, and its always nice to discover places that serve food that reminds me of home. The environment was nice, location was not too difficult to find (from Sunway), and though the pricing is kind of on the high-side, its well worth it.

    The laksa was ok, Taman Megah’s one is better in my opinion :), it reminded me of my high school canteen’s laksa (SMB St. Joseph, Kuching), and the Kolo mee was nice…but missing the red pork-oil usually available in Kuching, taste was nice.

    Overall its worth a visit, and i’ll be heading there for the Padungan Curry rice 🙂

    wei ken, i went the other day for lunch, and guess what?
    they say their mains already FINISHED! that was about 3pm.
    asked us return in the evening.
    ahem … ended up eating something else.
    no luck ….
