As in many Asian cities, hawker food is extremely popular and delicious in Singapore too. Not only the Michelin inspectors know how to find the best.
When it comes to finding the best Laksa in Singapore, many locals wouldn’t look beyond East Coast Road in Katong. A celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay made „328 Katong Laksa“ shop extra famous. What made it so special to its fans and curious foodies is its extremely delicious and aromatic coconut based curry soup.
This gravy is the epitome of balance in taste and texture coming from all of the ingredients such as coconut milk, chili, dried shrimps, and herbs. It somehow reminds Singaporeans of home and the grandma’s laksa.
You can find both curry laksa and assam laksa in Singapore. But for the truly local version, go with the curry gravy option.
A bowl of curry laksa can only deliciously shine with the help of spicy coconut-based soup, which is the soul of this Peranakan dish. And fishcakes, prawns and cookles atop thick bee hoon noodles play their role well to give laksa a strong ocean notes. Since the noodles are always cut short before serving, you will no longer need a pair of chopsticks to wolf them down. Use a spoon to scoop out all the goodness.
