Sungei Road Laksa

You can’t step into the borders of the Lion City and not try the iconic Singapore dish, Laksa! Consisting of noodles served in a spicy broth of curry and coconut milk, it’s typically accompanied with seafood and various other ingredients.

Sungei Road Laksa has been a local favourite for decades, serving up the authentic taste of Laksa at the most affordable prices. Not used to using chopsticks? Don’t fret! Interestingly, the noodles are cut into small pieces that make them easy to eat with a spoon. Convenient much?
