Old Town sells Singaporean and Malaysian style food, and it’s Restaurant Group include LAKSA under Elements, and also KITCHEN 65 in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Singapore Laksa – $78
I arrived because I noticed their Photo Shoot included something vital – namely Laksa leaves! When the actual bowl arrived, it only had a tiny sprinkle of dried herbs and it didn’t had the laksa leaf fragrance I wanted. This is also a Curry Laksa version, and although the base soup had the right ingredients, I think the gravy can be richer. As it is, it’s too coconutty and not spiced enough, although you can taste some faint dried prawn essence within.
Rice Noodles -
Since they didn’t advertise themselves to be a Katong Laksa, the noodles are not cut up ready to be spooned. There are no mixed noodles option here too. The noodles were slightly over-boiled but surprisingly it was soft yet somehow elastic, but couldn’t absorb the gravy taste much… Overall I think the base foundation of this laksa is decent, but it definitely needed a heavier gravy and the noodles texture was slightly weird on this visit. ~ 6.9/10
