Best for: cheap eats
Laksa King is a large, clean canteen with long communal tables, a small courtyard area with bamboo plants specialising in laksa. A tall blackboard menu lists all the Malaysian classics, including eight kinds of the namesake dish. For the record, Laksa King does a great version of this much-loved classic: the big, deep bowl has a rich broth, a good measure of coconut creaminess and a nice warm hit of chilli that won’t break your tastebuds. There’s a mix of hokkien and vermicelli noodles and a healthy amount of shredded chicken, prawns (two), fried tofu squares, fishcake, and deep-fried eggplant that has sucked up all the flavour of the broth.
