I’m not sure how original the Original Katong Laksa also known as Marine Parade Laksa is. But it’s not bad, and goes down pretty well with a piece of otak.
There are lots of other places along this road at which to dine, but somehow me, brown and the rest of the office end up here come dinner time, either for the laksa or the economy rice, even though the fare at the rice stall really doesn’t vary much from day to day. Maybe it’s the understated comfort of routine. Or something.
But if you’re in the area, come sit down at this little coffee shop with the Original Katong Laksa also known as Marine Parade Laksa, and I’m telling you not just because the fella that runs the joint is my Army buddy Alvin. There’s also the kopi auntie who remembers what your usual beverage is just after two visits, and a new “modern western food” stall that serves pretty decent fare cheaply.
