Food and Drink at 1am in the morning. This dish is called Laksa.. A local favourite which taste heavenly!
Laksa is a popular spicy noodle soup from Peranakan culture also known as Baba and Nyonya, which is a merger of Chinese and Malay elements found in Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia.
The origin of the name "laksa" is unclear. One theory traces it back to Hindi/Persian lakhshah, referring to a type of vermicelli. It has also been suggested that "laksa" may also be derived from the Chinese word "la sha" (辣沙; pronounced "latsa" in Cantonese), meaning "spicy sand" due to the ground dried prawns which makes the gravy taste extremely sandy. The last theory is that the name laksa is derived from the similar sounding word "dirty" in Hokkien due to its appearance.
Descriptions aside.. I was more excited about taking the picture than actually eating it.. I'm very very full now.. and I'm afraid to go to sleep or I may get indigestion..
