If you’re ever in the Chinatown area, stop by the Famous Sungei Road Trishaw Laksa (#02-66) stall at the Hong Lim Food Centre for some yummy laksa.
Now, any stall that calls itself “famous” anything automatically arouses the sceptic in me. However, the laksa is pretty good, it’s not too oily and the coconut milk isn’t overwhelming.
I usually get the $4 version because $3 isn’t filling enough for me. For $5.50, you get a crayfish thrown in. I never miss out on the cockles either. The laksa uncle is really friendly too, he says the soup is cooked with scallops, oysters and dried prawns for 2 hours. The stall also sells mee siam, and although I’ve tried it, I’m not a fan of the mee siam. I always go for the laksa.
