There was a new Malaysian Laksa eatery which has just opened on Elizabeth street and Miss Travel decided to check it out and so I tagged along. Since it was the opening night, it was super duper packed and luckily we came early so we were able to get a table. The staff gives you a menu at the table and you just order up front when you’re ready. I got the iced teh tarik and I love this, its just pulled milk tea. Miss Travel got the soya bean and she too, enjoyed her drinkie.
Iced Teh Tarik – $4.50; Iced Soya Bean – $3.20
For a shared dish, we got the crispy vege curry puff and we didn’t enjoy this at all. The pastry was more pie-like then puff-like which was disappointing and the filling, there was nothing special about it either. Not something I’d recommend.
Crispy Vege Curry Puff – $5
Miss Travel got the Nasi Lemak with Nyonya chicken. The chicken was quite moist inside and the sambal, it was quite spicy and gives it a punch in your face. So if you can’t handle your spiciness, maybe dip a bit of the sambal and not lather your food in it. The egg could have been more yolkier and runnier but other than that, I enjoyed the dish.
Nasi Lemak with Nyonya Chicken – 9.30
Since we were at a laksa house, we needed to get the Laksa House special. The soup itself was not overly creamy but quite thin and full of flavour. The chicken was not dry at all which was very surprising. My favourite part was the malaysian fried beancurd. I ABSOLUTELY SMASHED the beancurd. Also, a word of warning, this too was quite spicy and I couldn’t eat it all. I think they need to put a bit of the spiciness on a separate plate so you can adjust how spicy you’ll want it to be.
Laksa House Special – $10.80
The staff were polite, very efficient and cleared your table as soon as they see that you’re done with it. It does get quite busy so if you want a table, you might have to go earlier. Good quality food with low prices, what more could you ask for? They only do cash only so make sure you bring enough because they do not take card at all. Also, when the staff gave us water with cups, the cups were plastic which did not match the interior and environment at all. Please change your plastic cups to glasses, it’ll be much more economically friendly.
