Sungei Road Laksa
Sungei Road Laksa was voted one of Singapore's Heritage Hawkers and so with great anticipation i checked the makansutra, and the street directory before trudging over to Kelantan Lane (near mustafa centre) for the laksa.
the stall is in a coffeeshop, and even at 3pm there was a really long queue of mainly ah-peks having their afternoon laksa fix/snack. i even noticed that the gravy was boiling in a charcoal stove. wow. one wonders what that does for the taste, if anything.
Hmm. so they had the 2 dollars or 3 dollars version - the 2 dollars looked extremely miniscule and i was famished. so 3 bucks it is. came with just a spoon for slurping. so how was it?
Pretty good; it was quite light and tasty, not the lemak style. what i really liked was the freshness of the taugey. it was really crunchy. dunno why i picked that out but yeah. and also the cockles were very good. fresh. quite nice, but i think i prefer the katong laksa lemak style. haha. (7.5/10)
