Ahhh Laksa! a Southeast Asian food item that we are so grateful for its existence.
What makes a good laksa in your opinion? Pretty sure most people would answer that the broth/soup is the crucial part of a great laksa.

When it’s so good you can just have it “kosong”. The laksa of course comes with ingredients- shredded chicken, omelette and fresh prawns. Foodies, if you want to sink your teeth in this laksa, be sure to come early. Although it opens daily, it only opens for a mere THREE hours- from 7am-10am only! Get there early!
