The famous and “legendary” Yishun laksa that we have all heard about, is located at Yishun block 928. We visited them during a weekday lunch time and the queue was consistently around 10 to 15 pax.
Their curry broth was thick and creamy, and mildly spicy. It had a heavy coconut milk presence with mild curry powder and tiny bits of hei bi for the extra bite. The aftertaste after downing a few spoonful was pleasant and delectable, leaving a lingering luscious taste in our taste buds.
Ingredients were simple and straight forward, such as bean sprouts, fish cake slices, tau pok and half an egg. The only out of the norm ingredient was crab sticks.
The defining ingredient was definitely their homemade chili paste which we added on. It had a deep and fragrant taste with tiny bits of hei bi and irresistible spicy.
Sadly, their default orders do not come with cockles. Each small bowl cost $3, while big bowl is at $3.50. Adding extra ingredients cost $0.50, while adding cockles is at $1.
Frankly laksa without cockles just ain’t laksa, but with their chili paste and curry broth, it was well worth the calories.
