This bowl offers all the prerequisite elements of an excellent laksa; rich, creamy with an abundance of flavours from the spices and good stock base. The heat level is tolerable and the accompanying fragrant chilli paste is more than sufficient to add flavour to the broth if you need it. I find it tasty enough without the need for the paste, though the excellent chilli is a potent mix of chillies (dry and fresh) with onions and candlenuts. Some places skip the laksa leaf (Vietnamese mint), or daun kesom but not this bowl. It’s an aromatic herb that I find to be a prerequisite for the overall aroma and flavour.
