Laksania aim to introduce a new concept eatery and specialize in an innovative menu of local and fusion dishes based on the unique and flavorful herb, laksa leaf. Laksania intend to translate the heartiness of laksa into a series of great comfort foods to engage the most discerning palette.
My friend and I were walking around NEX Serangoon mall deciding what to have for dinner until we walked pass Laksania located at basement B1.The restaurant was full house at that moment and we smelled the laksa fragrance that attracts us to give it a try.
We were assigned to our seating place with menu and order form by the staff. After flipping through the menu, we made our decision. SP went to the counter to place the order and make payment.
I goggled a bit of the history of the restaurant. Laksania is a stop where customers can expect to see different versions of Laksa originating from various parts of Malaysia, and of course not forgetting the local version of laksa.
Modern interpretations of laksa include the Laksa Lasagna, which I reckon will be a huge hit amongst youths. It is composed of taupok, pasta sheets, chicken, mushroom and cheese.
Each of us had our choice. My friend ordered Laksa Goreng S$7.50 which has the strong laksa aroma when it was served.
Lasagna S$8.50 was my choice as I find it quite interesting combination of laksa and lasagne. The ingredients composed of taupok, pasta sheets, chicken slices, mushroom and cheese. The combination gave me a ‘Wow’ expression when I first tried. The master behind this creation did a great job of mixing the fusion cuisine together.

This is my 3rd time going to this place. Today I tried the Singapore Laksa. It's nothing to shout about. At $7.50 for a bowl, I thought it was steep. It tastes like any laksa you can get at a hawker centre or food court. With the GST, the bill came up to $8.05. I don't think I want to pay 8 bucks for a bowl of normal laksa.
When I was at their door step, I saw their menu on their glass window and one segment of the menu said – VEGETARIAN, for our Vegetarian friends! Oh, how lovely, it was simply awesome, I feel so welcome and great.
I could not wait to try their vegetarian option available and whatever pricing it is, does not really matter to me anymore.
I ordered the Vegetarian Laksa Goreng @ S$7.50 which was something I had never seen before in any vegetarian eateries. It was delicious and the portion was more than enough for 2 pax (small eater). This dish was fried with long bean, carrot, cabbage, bean sprout and mock meat and not too spicy. If it was served with a little bowl of vegetarian laska soup and with vegetarian sambal chilli to up the spiciness that would be great.
Just love the idea that Laksania is set up with a social cause and therefore I decided to support them by ordering their dessert, even I was very full. I ordered their Chin Chow Dessert @ S$1.
Had a very enjoyable vegetarian lunch at Laksania. Thank you for being Vegetarian friendly and I would be back again very soon.
