Depot Rd Zhen Shan Mei Claypot Laksa
Boy was I a happy camper yesterday! Just check out that hungry smile on my face...
Nothing, and I do mean nothing, beats a good scrumptious meal (that's also cheap! haha).
I dare say, having a yummilious meal always sets the mood for the day. It makes me smile more, laugh more, burp more maybe? hahaha, just kidding.
And so, I have to rave about this awesome claypot laksa I savoured yesterday at Alexandra Village Food Centre.
It's seriously da bomb!
I think I prefer this kind of laksa - with a thick and rich orangey fragrant coconut milk gravy with plenty of sambal. Katong laksa pales in comparison and simply fades into oblivion the moment I tuck into this one of a kind claypot laksa.
What makes this laksa so fantastic? First of all, I adore the colour:
Second of all, I can't get enough of its aroma. The gravy is thick like curry! And man, a $3 bowl is enough to fill me up. If you like big portions, there's also the $4 and $5 choice.
It's my first time eating claypot laksa and man, I'm hooked! This stall is uber famous for their awesome claypot laksa:
Check out the queue. They've been featured in various media as well.
Ahhhh.... thank God for claypot laksa! I've finally tasted laksa heaven. Seriously, it beats all the other laksas I've eaten. If only they had a stall in the East! This one is simply too far. I was only there yesterday because I went to Ikea and Queensway Shopping Centre.
Was there with JF and Leonard. Leo ate the laksa and loved it as well. But JF decided to skip it and ate this from another stall instead:
I think it's some nasi lemak with orange coloured (weird! it's not even briyani) rice. But it tasted really good too! He only paid $2.50! Man, I must come here more often. The food there's just so delicious....
Anyone knows any other yummy stalls there? Let me know ya!
Okie, I gotta go... I hope you try out that laksa soon. You won't regret it, I promise :)
