Things to Eat & Buy in Kuching, Sarawak | CHELUM Chocolate

Guys, I just know that Sarawak has their owned Chocolate brand. Yes, you read it right. It is called CHELUM. Just for your info, "Chelum" is from Iban's native word called dark. So, the named of the brand is represent Sarawak Dark Chocolate. This creative idea to create the chocolate is from Noor Asmah Mohammed Mokhtar, who also the owner of Roti Lazeez Enterprise. Their small kitchen factory is located at Laruh Skim, Kuching, Sarawak.


The unique of CHELUM is that, the ingredients are 100% originally from Sarawak and featuring the identity of Sarawak, the land of Hornbills. Till this date, there are 5 exotic types of CHELUM in the market, they are Cholocate Tiong Delight (Terung Asam / Sour Eggplant), Cholocate Sago Pearl, Cholocate Tebaloi Crunch, Cholocate Blackpepper, and Cholocate Lazeez Spice.


I had tried all five different types of CHELUM chocolate. Honestly, Tebaloi Crunch is my favorite and recommended for you to try. For the Blackpepper, is my least favorite as it's too strong for me as I did not like spicy things. But, if you adventurous enough, you should try it. Before you buy in big quantity,

I recommend you to try it first. For sure, the taste will drive you to the next level of chocolate sensation where you cannot find in other places.

Metroxylon sagu is a species of palm in the genus metroxylon, native to tropical south-eastern Asia, namely Malaysia and Indonesia. The tree is of commercial importance as the main source of sago, a starch kernels out of the pulverized pith water. The starch is used in cooking for puddings, noodles, breads, and as a thickener. The sago palm reproduces by fruiting. Each steam (trunk) in a sago palm clump flowers and fruits at the end of its life, but the sago palm as an individual organism lives on through its suckers (Shoots that continuously branching off a stem at or below ground level). To harvest the starch in the stem, it is felled shortly before or early during this final flowering stage when starch content is highest.

Tebaloi, traditional Sarawak snack is a delicacy of Melanau people of Sarawak. The unique taste of Tebaloi is so special that it has become very popular snack for all races. The main producing areas of Tebaloi are in the Mukah and Dalat districts along the coastal region of Mukah Division. The areas favour large plantations og sago palms which produce sago powder, the main ingredients used in the processing of Tebaloi.

A herb plant that grows up to 2.5m. Very similar to Terung Bulu. Regarded as a variant of Terung Bulu, Terung Asam has white flowers and green fruits at the immature stage. Color of mature fruits ranges from yellow, reddish yellow, purplish yellow and of different shape depending on the variety. The sour taste gives its name "Terung Asam".

Pepper (Piper Nigrum L.) has been cultivated in Sarawak since 1856. Blackpepper is the world's most traded spice, and is one of the most common spices added to cuisines around the world.

Is a mixture of finely ground spices such as turmeric, ginger, coriander, galangal, cumin, blackpepper, red onion, star anise, rise, coconut, chili flakes, cinnamon, cardamom, garlic, aniseed which has pleasant aroma and flavor. This mixture is used to enhance the flavor of the chocolate.

For now, CHELUM did not have any shop that open to public. Most of their chocolate is sell by the agent, you can always check in Shopee and Facebook for their agent. You also can find the CHELUM Chocolate at the Kuching/Miri/Sibu International Airport. If you planning to have a visit at Lazeez Enterprise (maybe you can see by youself how CHELUM is made), you can contact 019-888-8808 for the arrangement.



If you are looking for souvenirs in Sarawak to bring back home, I really recommend CHELUM, as it is really representing the Sarawak.
