2 Laksa...

What can you buy with merely S$2 nowadays? What if I told you that you can get yourself a delicious bowl of 'Laksa' at the price of 2(?) would you dare to give it a good try?

Pretty much similar to the infamous 'Katong Laksa' that expects the customer
to wipe out the whole bowl of 'Laksa' using a spoon, no chopsticks will be
provided over here too and you will only be getting a spoon too. Though I
wouldn't say that this is a very big bowl of 'Laksa' but it has all the
necessary factors that forms a good bowl of 'Laksa'. The bowl of 'Rice
Noodles' topped with yummy ingredients like 'sliced fish cake', 'cockles',
beansprouts, 'Sambal Chilli', all surrounded in the tasty and sweet pool
of 'Laksa' gravy and garnished with Vietnamese coriander, or more commonly
known as 'Laksa Leaf'. Believe me or not, but in this small little bowl of
'Laksa' there's actually quite a handful of ingredients and even though it
wasn't too spicy, but the sweet and spicy taste can easily satisfy the
needs of a typical Singaporean.

So where can you give this affordable bowl of 'Laksa' a good try?
The name of this stall would be 'Sungei Road Laksa'.
It has occupied one of the corners of the coffee shop, 'Jin Shui Kopitiam'.

  • Operating Hours:
    Thursdays - Tuesdays: 09:30 - 17:30
    (Closed on Wednesdays)
  • The queue for a bowl of 'Laksa' over here can be unexpectedly long. I was queuing up for like 20 minutes...
  • One key highlight of the stall would be the fact that they are cooking the 'Laksa' gravy using a big metal cauldron, which is placed on top of a charcoal fire, which is a pretty rare sight nowadays.
  • Sadly, before I have the chance to publish this post, they have decided to increase the price already. Therefore, there isn't a S$2 Laksa anymore. :(
