For this whole week, a colleague and I, we are attending a course at Robinson Road. Being newbies in this area, lunch time is a fun time to look for food.
On Monday we had food at the more familiar Amoy St Food Centre. Tuesday we made a bad decision by going to China Sq Food Centre. It seems that this place is closing down, most stalls have closed and the food we had was horrible.
For the last few days, we were busy spotting places to eat. One that caught our eye was this long long queue at a laksa shop at the Market St Carpark building.
So, today we decided to try this laksa. We were let off for lunch at around 11.45 AM, quite a blessing at the lunch crowd has not invaded the city. No queue!
Colleague had the Prawn Mix Laksa. $6.90
I had the Chicken Mix Laksa instead. $6.90
All the ingredients are hidden inside. You get 2 chicken wings, lots of ‘ham’ / cockles, tao pok, fish cake etc… And the super thick calorie laden gravy…..
The gravy is thick and yummy. The sambal is spicy and fiery. Although you are sitting in an air con place, you will definitely break sweat eating this. The claypot keeps your laksa hot and that keeps a bowl of heat heating up your face. haha…
The chicken tasted like it is boiled separately and just added on top. You got to ‘coat’ it with the thick gravy to make it taste good.
Wondering what should we have for lunch tomorrow.
