Mention local delicacies in Singapore and laksa would surely be one dish that will be highlighted as a dish that is considered to be uniquely Singaporean. This dish is the seamless combination of spicy curry gravy and coconut milk which gives it kick whenever you take a sip of the gravy.
For those who love laksa, here are some places you must definitely try even though it may give you diarrhoea the next day.
Sungei Road Laksa
If you love your good food at bargain prices, this place is somewhere you must visit. Can you still name a place that sells food for $2? I think you will think that this is not possible in this day and age with the ever increasing inflation rate here in Singapore, but such affordable fare still exists today.
This is even sweeter if you love laksa as this stall still sells a bowl of laksa for $2, talk about value for money. What set this stall aside from others is that the owner still insists on using a charcoal fire to cook the laksa gravy which gives it a different flavour from the rest.
Address: Blk 27, Jalan Berseh, #01-100,Singapore 200027
Opening Hours: Mon to Sun: 9am – 6pm, Closed on 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month
Depot Road Zhen Shan Mei Claypot Laksa
If you like your laksa to be different, why not try the version of laksa served here? This laksa is served in a claypot which makes the presentation of the dish something that you won’t usually find at other places and another plus point about the laksa being served in a claypot is that it can better retain heat, ensuring your delicious bowl of laksa does not turn cold that quickly. The gravy here is also much thicker than the usual ones you find outside so for those who are health-conscious, you may not want to finish every drop of the gravy.
