Madras Lane Petaling Street
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Admittedly in need of a renovation, Madras Lane is a local institution when it comes to street food, but despite the variety, the laksa and yong tau foo remain the real crowd pullers. For the curry laksa, bubbling hot curry broth is ladled into a bowl full of tau fu pok, brinjal, cockles, pork rind and noodles – it’s a dish that’s jam-packed with flavours and textures. The assam laksa is just as good, thanks to the tangy, sweet and sour broth that’s just mildly spicy. The thing is, there are three stalls offering these two dishes, but the second and third stall from the main entrance are the most popular. Also, don’t miss the crowded yong tau foo stall across from the laksa sellers.
