Although this place has been around for a long time, I only recently had a chance to sample their laksa. Part of the reason why I often dread going to Section 14 is the difficulty in getting a car park space but I persevered and suceeded with a nice spot.
It's relatively easy to locate this stall which is at the end of the halal section of the medan selera with the big sign Lum Kee telling the whole world they're in the business of selling curry laksa, assam laksa, mee sup, prawn mee and my absolute favourite the siam laksa. Essentially a mix of the two laksas - the tangy assam and the coconut creamy curry, it's the best of both worlds. Lum Kee's version definitely hit a sweet spot for me and I was slowly slurping down the mixed laksa till the last drop.
I was feeling extra greedy after slurping down my Siam Laksa that I decided to also try a small bowl of their curry laksa. The curry laksa got my thumbs up too - rich with coconut milk but too overly indulgent. I loved the sambal they give you in the spoon. It's not too spicy but I definitely could taste the tiny prawns used to make it. It added a touch of extra yummy to the laksa.
Although I was super curious to try the other offerings, I decided I better stop or else I'll explode with all the laksas. Definitely worth another trip back as I want to sample their other offerings. The stall is relatively quiet and run by two old men with huge metal pots boiling with the delicious laksa broth.
