Whenever we heard about Ellenborough Market Café, it’s buffet spread in our mind. But this time round, they launched Laksa Cuisine series for the month of November. So, from 1st – 30th November, you can enjoy 6 different types of laksa cuisines other than the buffet choice. Ellenborough Market Café unveils a hearty helping of 6 irresistibly spicy creations from the family of ‘Laksa’ dishes unique to Singapore and Malaysia. There are also options for toppings for the Laksa dishes.
It’s a comforting bowl of laksa for most Singaporean and best to go with cockles. But I would prefer the broth taste to be stronger.
This bowl of noodles served with the creamy broth. If you are a chilli lover, add in some of the chilli served to enhance the stronger flavours in it. It will certainly whet your appetite. It would be even better if the broth taste is stronger.
I love Penang Laksa and the best I had before was during my trip in Penang few years back. The Assam Laksa here was quite disappointing as the flavour tasted mild and lack of the sourness in it.
First time trying Sarawak Laksa with bee hoon and it gives me a taste of having curry flavoured beehoon. The paste taste was thick and it would be best to add in some toppings to complete your meal.
First look is just like the ‘mee goreng’ but this is the dry version of fried noodles with laksa sauces. I enjoyed the slight spiciness in it and the taste of the seafoods balance off with sweetness in it.
I am quite impressed with this plate of fried rice. Fragrance spices from the fried rice with diced prawns and seafoods are just nice to fill up the stomach well.
