There are various types of laksa here in Malaysia and they are mostly different depending from which state they are made from. By the name, Sarawak laksa comes from the state of Sarawak whereas the Curry Laksa is more common in Kuala Lumpur.  If you are from Singapore and you have never tasted Sarawak Laksa before, the moment you taste Sarawak Laksa, you would say that it tastes similar to Curry Laksa to the chagrin of your Sarawakian friends who up hold this dish like a patriotic Sarawakian. So we decided to list here below the differences between both laksas that originated from different states.
