Good Laksa at Jln Berseh!

This stall has been at Sungei Road for many years and shifted to their current location a few years back.

What's special about this stall is that they cook their laksa soup over a charcoal fire which you can see in the front of the stall. 

It's also one of the cheapest, where you can have a bowl for only $2. You can opt for a bigger bowl at $3, which is a bigger portion. For $2, you are definitely not short-changed for quality. This is evident in the queues of people who line up patiently for their bowl of laksa. The queue moves fast, and I am usually eating my bowl of laksa within 5 minutes of joining the queue!

The stall also has a long list of accolades, awards and editorial features from around the world.

It comes with white thick vermicelli, blanched bean sprouts, fish cake, cockles and sliced laksa leaves. The gravy is soupy and not thick. Even with the chilli paste added, it's not terribly spicy. 

Recommended!

Shiok S$2 Sungei Road Laksa on 10Aug2014

first came to this sungei road laksa stall at jalan shui kopitiam at jalan berseh>10years ago.
have not been here for several years. today though 3 of us were having turtle soup at berseh food centre, so decided to drop by for the laksa.
there was a 15pax queue at 2.30pm on a sunday. i waited about 15mins. stall is closed every 1st & 3rd wednesday of the month.
the stall had 2 ladies preparing bowls of laksa & taking orders, and an older men cooking the noodles & ladling the gravy goodness from a charcoal fire pot.
laksa was S$2, with slices fish cakes & cockles, served with spoon & no chopsticks. i added cockles so it was S$3.
gravy was light, not too lemak nor spicy, but quite flavourful & intense, very satisfying. i also ta pao (take-out) 2 packets back.
there is another sungei road laksa at nearby kelatan lane but i have never tried it. will give it a try next time i am here, which unlikely to be soon though.

The kind of place I'd be proud to bring my non-Singaporean friends to visit

While it is located nowhere near an MRT station and can be quite a warm place to eat at in sunny Singapore, this is definitely a place worth visiting if you love laksa! This is definitely one of the best laksa I have tasted and I love how there is a slight charcoal taste to it, coupled with the freshest cockles. It does not have too much coconut milk which the katong laksa has, so yes, definitely a place I will keep going back to!
