Thread: Is Katong Laksa the best around?

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Is Katong Laksa the best around?

    I'm wondering if Katong Laksa is the best we could get here or am I missing something. How about Nasi Lemak? I know 'Power Nasi Lemak in Boon Lay was good; but when I tried it it was only so so. Any gourmet experts can help please?

    The Sungei Road one now at Jalan Berseh is still my fav...still charcoal wood, but the standard varies from time to time.

    Katong laksa in Katong (along East Coast Road) is overly commercialised now and tenants are paying obscene rent to run their biz, standard and portion now has gone downhill.

    The ones in Katong are getting from bad to worse. Tried it yesterday and the gravy was merely taste faintly of coconut milk and water. I remember I'd tried a Laska that blends the flavours lemon grass, coconut milk and spices in creamy gravy that resolves mildy but fragrantly on the tongue. The after taste is something of fulfilling but it does not cause thirst.

    Gosh... were are all the good food in Singapore...

    honestly, i don't remember the stall name! take the escalator from the yishun bus interchange towards blk 930. once you get off the escalator, look in front and you will see a small coffee/makan house. its the laksa stall NOT facing the escalator....

    That stretch of laksa stalls along East Coast Road has really gone down the drain.
    Best katong-style laksa is in a coffee shop at the junction of changi road and still road.
    Uncle has been there 20 odd years. Usually open till he runs out which could be BEFORE lunch.

    I'm heading to Changi Village now to buy the Nasi Lemak. There's Sri Jana, International (the long long q one) and Mizzy Corner.

    I usually buy from Sri Jana

    The Sungei Road Laksa at Jalan Berseh is my favourite too. But for those along East Coast Road, I find the one at the smallest, oldest shop still not bad. The biggest, air-conditioned one is quite mediocre.

    Actually, home-made laksa is best

    Actually yes... good quality dried shrimp, belachan and freshly squeezed coconut milk is the base to good laksa. Of course you can tweak how much blue ginger, lemon grass and garlic...how much you fry these in oil will change the taste of your laksa. I'm a bit lazy with the chilli, so I usually get the ready made chilli paste (just chilli, not laksa paste), which gives me pretty decent results.

    On top of that, what you use to combine the ingredient is important... using a blender somehow doesn't give the richer taste as compared to the mortar. And there's a diff between the texture of dried shrimp when pound in mortar and one that's chopped in the blender.

    Anyone for homemade laksa? I'm getting hungry

    Yishun one is the best.. the sungei road or katong one all no fight... cause the ingredients not as much, price not as cheap.. and the gravys not as thick and fragrant as yishun one..
