A bowl of laksa will only set you back $3 and it comes packed full of ingredients. Each bowl comes with tau pok, fish cake and gigantic cockles. The cockles are probably one of the biggest you’ll find in a bowl of laksa and they are super fresh! The laksa gravy is thick and has a very rich hae bee taste. For those who want an extra kick, do add their chilli and it’ll elevate your dish to another level!

For those who miss their old school laksa, this bowl will definitely take you on a trip down memory lane. Those who can’t get enough of this scrumptious dish can simply top up $1 for a bigger portion. Trust me, you won’t regret it!
