Best Laksa In Town?


 Share

Recommended Posts

So guys, where could I find good laksa in town?

 

If possible not in Jurong, Woodlands or Tampines haha. I'm trying to stay as central as possible :)

There are two types right? I remember eating one super spicy... i coulnd't finish it. Then I had a Katong Laksa, much better for my stomach :)

have you tried the one at yishun? At the back of the bus interchange there's one little shop next to a dessert shop. They sell out everyday though haha

Cooking is my passion. Music is my life. Reading is my sanity. 

Bitching about you keeps me happy.

Never been as far as Yishun lol. Sold out means going there around 7pm might be useless?  :)

 

 

Haha you could try your luck, but usually by then it's out le :( 

But I really recommend you to try there if you could haha

Enelym,

When did you develop a craving for laksa?

When did you first have laksa?

laksa for dinner.. there's a 328 katong laksa at queensway shopping centre. i'm not sure if it's open for dinner but i think so?

328 across roxy sq definitely stays open during dinner though.

 

then there's the claypot laksa at alexandra village hawker centre which unfortunately isn't open during dinner hours.

 

if u're into a different kind of laksa there's an awesome penang laksa just a couple mins walk from aljunied mrt. open for dinner. :)

haha laksa tend to be sold out quite quickly in most places, since it's a childhood food for most and a unique food for foreigners to want to try :D

The benchmark laksa is the one at Jalan berseh - sungei road laksa. Try it first. And then try the others. Better or not as good then stems from this benchmark.

Laksa is a daytime food. Not suited for night consumption. Of course demand will create supply. But most people know to have it for lunch or tea...

Went to the one near Jalan Berseh on Tuesday night after the heavy rain at around 8pm. 

Not sure if it's the correct stall but it has clippings of reviews and the signboard reads 'Sungei Road Laksa'.

The soup wasn't too salty.

It was reddish because of the chilli.

No chopsticks, only spoon, ordered extra cockles. 

Warm food, cold night, Buddy.

Gosh...I'm hungry now.

Had the $4 one with prawns. First taste was rather bland probably because it's too hot. Gradually, it just grew on me so i'll definitely go back for more...possibly as soon as early next week haha.

Block 31 is the WRONG one... Look carefully... this stall is using GAS FIRE... not charcoal fire..  this stall used to be the original one but it moved to block 27.and the next tenant sell laksa to capitalise on unsuspecting customers... I was taken in too for a few times and was wondering how come standard dropped... it's a different stall!

 

This one advertises who to call? meaning he caters? the original one is an old man... helped by his daughters.  day time ONLY.

 

make sure try the one at block 27. you can't miss it.

Seems that we went to the wrong one. Then again, i guess it's ok since we all like it very much. The one at block 31 must be even better.

I personally don't order laksa in Singapore- not that I like or dislike it, but it's not at the top of the list unless it's something special. I didn't think too much about it but when my friend from Penang said that Singapore's laksa is just curry noodle, I laughed and thought that he's kinda right. 

 

When you look at the individual ingredients between curry and Singapore's laksa, they're almost identical- save for the herbs. Chicken broth, garlic, ginger, and most importantly, coconut milk, are always necessary to make the laksa. 

 

On the other hand, Peranakan Laksa, also known as Assam Laksa, is completely different; the soup is sweet and sour, made using fish-based ingredients.

 

Personally speaking, I would pick Assam Laksa over Singapore's Laksa any day. The flavours are distinct enough from curry that I enjoy the different flavours. My grandma's from Penang and she makes the best Assam Laksa I've ever tasted, even matching Penang's best options. 

 

However, while Singapore laksa can easily pass for $3-4 per bowl, the amount of effort and the price of ingredients for Assam Laksa will drive the minimum cost to $5-7.50 per bowl, and honestly, not many people will pay for something so different and at a higher entry to a bowl of noodles that isn't familiar to our usual tastebuds.
