The only place I go for laksa

Not really Katong...but what the hell...

Been having laksa here since I was a kid. It's still as fantastic as ever! Also a good place to hang out with friends and have supper, place being at holland.v.

The soup base is rich, creamy and aromatic, with springy noodles and fresh hum. It's not too spicy, so most people should be able to take it. You can always up the ante by adding more chili on your own.

The Otah too, one of the few places that serve respectable otah. I love dipping my otah into the laksa soup base before taking a bite. mmmMMmm

Their Nasi Lemak's not bad as well. Fragrant coconut rice with toppings that are neither cold nor soggy.

My perference has been reinforced after tasting those from a few other places. In fact, can someone add the Raku Laksa restaurent @ market street? IT'S THE WORST LAKSA I'VE EVER EATEN IN MY LIFE! WASTED $11 THERE! HURRY COZ I WANT TO SAVE PPL FROM THAT HORRIBLE PLACE!

Apart from that, yea, this place is fantastic, and hope it stays that way.

This "Katong Laksa" stall is called ’金都‘。 Gravy is full of laksa favour & the fresh cockles added make it taste even better. Now don't bother to go to East Coast Road, just come to this stall opposite the SPC petrol Station is enough to satisfy your 'laksa crave'.

I was introduced to Uncle George's laksa about 15 yrs ago and have been patronising him whenever I have a craving for laksa. The gravy is very flavourful and I never fail to finish every drop. Uncle George doesn't use tau pok in his laksa as the oil from the taupok taints the taste of the gravy, but he gives generous amounts of fish cake, prawns and cockles. You should try it for yourself, as they say, the proof is in the pudding

There is laksa and then there is "Katong laksa”. I think most Singaporeans will immediately understand that "Katong laksa”, refers to the style of Nonya laksa that is eaten with just the spoon, and the most well-known place to eat this is at the stalls around the junction of Ceylon and East Coast Road. Nowadays, there are so many stalls claiming to be the "Katong laksa” that you don't really know who’s original. But this stall has conclusive proof that it is the one! The stall owner showed me the Certificate of Registration for his Katong laksa.
I remember the very first time I ate Katong laksa. I was still in JC and dating my then girlfriend (wife now). At that time, there weren't as many stalls as there are today. If I am not wrong, there was only the one stall and it was at No. 49 East Coast Road (the one before Ceylon Road) called Marine Parade Laksa. But Marine Parade Laksa wasn't the original Katong Laksa. The real granddaddy of this style of laksa was a legend of extraordinary propositions (in laksa lore anyway) by the name of Janggut, who used to peddle his laksa at Marine Parade Jetty in the 50's. By the time he was near retirement, his son opened the stall at 49 East Coast Road and called it Marine Parade Laksa.
Janggut himself sold his laksa there on weekends only. Anyway, the laksa here seems very popular with the locals though not as well known as the stalls at Ceylon Road. The gravy was nice and savoury and as good (or some say better) as the other more famous stalls; sure to satisfy your Laksa craving. Best thing is that there is a Hainanaese chicken rice stall next to it, so you can order a plate of white chicken to dip in the gravy for that extra power! I met an old couple who was said to have eaten at the stall for decades and they swore it was the best laksa in Singapore. I thought it could do with a little more hae bee (dried shrimp) in the gravy. If you haven't eaten here, you can't really say that you have officially eaten Katong laksa before!

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
