As a Yishunian (have lived here my entire life), i am always proud to tell my friends and colleagues that you can find plenty of good food either within or somewhere near this suburban town!
One of Yishun's food legacies has to be this laksa stall located on the ground floor of a block of flats next to the bus interchange. To prevent any confusion, please keep in mind that it is stationed next to the popular dessert shop i blogged on quite a while ago (they used to co-exist in the same premise but have since separated).
There are a few more things to note - order at the counter (self service, my dear), limited capacity for dine-in and for those who prefer to eat in (for those fresh bowl of piping hot laksa), you are almost guaranteed to have your sweat glands working like hell!
The star of the day - without any cockles as i find those shit eating shellfish seriously repulsive and could not understand how people could enjoy them [p.s. don't compare my smelly tofu to cockles]!
Typically, laksa contains a mix of yellow noodles and thick bee hoon (vermicelli) even though personally, i would go for thick bee hoon. Mom has drilled into my memory long time ago that the latter type is less fattening than the former while just bee hoon lacks the thickness to attain that fulfilling bite.
Despite the absence of fresh, pulpy prawns, the creamy gravy (thanks to coconut milk; for a creamier texture, mix in the yolk of the hard boiled egg) was delicious with a lip smacking flavour that pushes me to want more and more!
I was never a laksa person until i was forced to share a bowl at 928 laksa with my mom back when i was still a secondary school student! And till this day, 928 Laksa remains my favourite laksa stall.
By the way, don't waste the slurping good gravy (you can exercise another day to even out the calories). I would be more than happy to drink it from your bowl; upon your agreement of course!
