Sungei Road Laksa

Sungei Road Laksa

This is by far the most old school laksa that I've ever had in Singapore. Sungei Road Laksa is found in a coffee shop at an old HDB estate at the Jalan Besar area. Selling at $2 a bowl, what a steal!! 

I was there at around 2pm on Sunday and a long queue was formed throughout the time that I was there! This shows how popular they are! Seen at the stall is an old man stationed at the pot of laksa gravy to cook the noodles and it is heated by charcoal. Despite it being very popular, the stall manages to be rather systematic with one preparing the noodles, one taking orders and another putting the fish cakes and cockles after the noodles are ready. 

Me being greedy as usual, we ordered a $3 (background) and $4(foreground) as we thought that the $2 portion may be too little for us. They only have fish cakes and cockles in the laksa, and the noodles are cut shorter so that we can scoop it easily with a spoon. What you can find in this bowl of laksa is one with simple ingredients and laksa broth. No fanciful toppings, but yet the broth is bursting with flavors from the coconut and haebi! 

Sungei road laksa is located at 
Block 27 Jalan Berseh Jin Shui Kopitiam
