The food: Merely passable in the ultra-competitive world of Katong Laksas; Broth was bland and the coconut milk used was diluted. Even adding dollops of the chili paste did not help. Cockles a tad overcooked but hey, at least they're there!Read MoreHide
Value for money: I ordered the medium-sized bowl and here's what I got: a hearty serving of noodles (definitely a plus), a couple of prawns (the usual), and 5 cockles. Yes, exactly five.
Service: Fast and efficient. Some shouting is required to get the attention of the waitstaff.
Other comments: Having been to the Katong laksa store across the street (now relocated to Roxy Square), it's easy to tell which one's the original (*hint* it's not 326...). I don't truly understand why this place is so crowded, but if I had to hazard a guess it's probably because of:
(a) Herd mentality: so popular ah, go la!
(b) Celeb power: the walls of the stall are lined with photos of 326 Laksa's shrewd owner and multiple celebrities.
(c) Killer marketing: 326 Laksa constantly invites bloggers and other online entities to help spread the gospel.
The Verdict: Definitely a no go. Watery broth, skimpy ingredients mean that better laksa options abound.
Better Alternatives: Try the Claypot Laksa at Alexandra Village or Janggut Laksa at Queensway Shopping Centre.
