try this unusual fried laksa (RM5.50)
I get bored easily, hence after a couple of days of ho-hum food around the office, I start itching to try something different. Talking about new things (as usual, I divert from today's food topic), I heard an interesting tidbit during lunchtime - Godiva is opening a branch at Suria KLCC (next to CPK aka California Pizza Kitchen). Whoopee! as this means getting those luxe chocs from a decent place versus the KLIA terminal. Also heard that Bukhara has closed and will be replaced by Harrods. I doubt it is the full fledged version - probably just a small place selling jams, biscuits and souvenirs from the ever famous department store.
popiah (RM4.50) is a good choice too
Okay, back to today's food topic, an interesting dish known as fried laksa. Discovered by my colleague who lives in Subang Jaya, this is a dry version of the ever popular assam laksa using all those familiar elements - lai fun, tangy and spicy chilli paste, mint leaves, shredded bunga kantan, cucumbers and onions. Not all the ingredients in the laksa are adopted though as the har koh (pungent prawn paste) and fish slivers are missing in this interpretation. Instead I found boneless chicken pieces and prawns within the fried noodles.
I tend to like the spicy and tangy kick of the fried noodles, hence I hanker for this once in a blue moon even though I find it a bit pricey for the size they serve you with. The popiah is something I usually order too. Not fantastic tasting but a decent wrapped version using a pale coloured shredded yambean instead of the brown version. Service is quite fast, and you get to see the workers preparing food in a clean environment as they have an open kitchen.
