Laksaamana: KL Style Laksa and the Nasi Legend
The Singapore folks met them at some event in Kuala Lumpur, hit it off, and only realised they are the owners of the famous Laksaamana group of cafes in Malaysia. One good thing led to another and now, Laksaamana is available in Singapore. I’ve many enjoyed their fare in Kuala Lumpur and although the menu spells things like laksa, prawn mee, soto ayam etc… it has a distinct Malaysian edge....MORE

Salt of our Hawker Centre

One reason could be the cheap-cheap factor, “2 Vegetables, 1 Meat for $2.50” lure. Great for those who just want a decent enough hot meal.
