Marron Lobster Sarawak Laksa at Antara Restaurant

5 Must-Try Malaysian Inspired Creations This Merdeka Month in Kuala Lumpur_Antara Restaurant

Antara Restaurant is set in a beautiful period building established in 1919 along off Jalan Raja Chulan. The restaurant is set in a colonial environment and the cuisine takes you back to how home used to taste like, with no shortcuts or MSG. We recommend their Marron Lobster Sarawak Laksa which its broth is creamier and thicker than the usual laksa, and takes 3 days to boil. In the laksa you will spot fresh Marron lobster, 100% pure rice noodles, handmade tofus from Bentong, Bintulu belacan hand pounded with chilli, and fat strands of bean sprouts.
