Wondermama Restaurant & Cafe @ Bangsar Village 1

As a Nyonya Laksa lover I am glad I found out about Wondermama at Bangsar Village 1. Theirs are definitely one of the better and authentic ones you could find in the city. But be prepared to fork out cafe price for this hawker dish because Wondermama is sort of like a high class mamak, situated in a mall where the wealthy shop.

The al fresco area is covered and there are plenty of plants around to provide shade. Don’t forget to look up while you are here.

D&L Laksa @ RM13.90 – The D&L refers to Donald & Lily, a famous eatery in Melaka. I am not sure if it tastes exactly the same like D&L’s because I have never been there. Anyway, the fragrant and milky broth contains all the necessaries like hard boiled egg, peeled prawn, fish cakes, fresh cockles, cucumber and laksa leaves.
It was nothing short of delicious and should be great to satiate your cravings for Nyoyna Laksa. However, just for the sake of record, Calanthe Art Cafe‘s rendition of the same and the famous Katong Laksa in Singapore are still the unbeatable ones in my book.

$2 Sungei Road (Kek Sng Kio) Laksa @ Jin Shui Kopitiam

This is known as the famous “Kek Sng Kio” or Sungai Road Laksa and besides being delicious, its cheap price is one of the main attractions. Also, they have maintained the traditional ways of heating the laksa using charcoal, something rarely seen nowadays in Singapore. Using charcoal fire is said to maintain the warmth of the laksa gravy better than gas, which also gives it a distinctive flavor in return.

There are a few stalls within the vicinity, all claiming to sell the authentic “Kek Sng Kio” Laksa so it could be quite confusing. Even though I have done my homework to identify the actual stall prior to coming, I still had to call a friend to confirm lol. I wouldn’t want to end up eating at the wrong stall like some other bloggers did after traveling all the way here.
One of the signs that you are at the correct stall would be having a look out for a queue. Secondly, the old aluminium pot of laksa gravy must be there sitting on a charcoal stove. Thirdly, there will be an uncle preparing the noodles behind.

328 Famous Katong Laksa @ East Coast Road

I love Katong Laksa, it has to be the one of the hawker food I have eaten the most since coming to Singapore. For me, having a good bowl of piping hot laksa with a can of ice cool Sarsi under a hot weather is a bliss. And it’s a great way to experience the common daily life of an average Singaporean too. I aim to try all the delicious laksa in the island before I head back to Malaysia, because it will definitely be on my list of missed Singapore food.

When it comes to popularity, without a shout of a doubt 328 Katong Laksa @ East Coast Road has it. The shop’s wall is full of photos of famous Hong Kong and Taiwan celebrities who have eaten here and given their share of thumbs up. However, famous as they might be, for me it’s only the taste that matters most.

Original Katong Spoon Laksa (Marine Parade Laksa) @ Bedok

The food I had the most ever since coming to Singapore must be Katong Laksa. It is easy for me to like Katong Laksa because of its small resemblance to Penang Curry Mee. For first timers, Katong Laksa has a much thicker and creamier coconut milk based soup and noodles that look like those used in Assam Laksa. In Melaka, this is more commonly known as Nyonya Laksa.
Katong Laksa is extremely popular in Singapore and you can find it at almost every food court. I have tried many stalls of Katong Laksa in the east of Singapore, with some heavily recommended by the locals. Among those that I have tried, Marine Parade Laksa or Janggut Laksa at Bedok is the nicest tasting one for me so far. It is also widely known as the Original Katong Laksa.

Katong Laksa uses a slimmer version of Assam Laksa noodle (or a thicker version of bee hoon) and is always served with bean sprouts, sliced prawns, grounded laksa leaves and the optional cockles and sambal chili paste.
