An spectacular identify and fairly good meals to go together with it at this small restaurant in Newcastle Street that has modified from Chinese influenced delicacies to that of Malaysia. Friendly employees greeted us once we dropped by for lunch in the course of the week – and we appeared over the menu whereas wine glasses have been delivered to the desk – they’re unlicensed however BYO is ok.
Spying the inclusion of Laksa among the many choices we each opted for it – we’re all the time looking out for a superb Laksa and haven’t come throughout one lately, however earlier than that we ordered a dish of fried, spicy squid tentacles to get the style buds shifting.
A mound of fried squid arrived – crisped pores and skin, pleasantly chewy, however not robust, squid, all boosted by a great allocation of salt and pepper, chilli and spring onion. A satisfying begin.
Our laksa was subsequent – a big bowl of soup, barely paler than anticipated, however with a sheen from the oil including a lustre – a mixture of skinny and egg noodles, bean sprouts, half a boiled egg, a couple of prawns, squid, and fried tofu topped with chopped spring onions – not notably spicy however with no less than some chilli chew – we requested for additional chopped chilli on the aspect and that added slightly extra zing– nice sufficient, however a bit extra zip would have helped.
The menu has quite a lot of different dishes that seem value a return go to, so that’s on the playing cards. But from what we skilled, affordable meals, good costs, value a go to in case you are in search of sound, though not notably revolutionary, Malay fashion meals.
