i cannot get over how fabulous the laksa was at j n e's wedding this afternooon. it was the first thing i zoomed into as soon as i stepped into the multi-purpose hall at the church. hubby lined up at the buffet line while i made a bee-line for the laksa.
i love love love laksa lemak or nyona laksa, not the penang laksa or other varieties. it's got to have the thick coconut gravy, with that layer of red oil over it (of course you don't scoop on the oil onto your bowl lah!).
the laksa was perfect, thick, rich with a fabulous chilli paste that gave it an extra kick, with a slight sweet aftertaste. it came with fishcake and pretty sweet prawns too. it would have been perfect with some cockles. but when you're catering for hundreds, i guess its safer to omit that ingredient.
i only had one bowl, knowing that if filled the calorie quota, but it took all the willpower in me not to go for a refill (i must admit i took one spoonful from hubby's bowl though).
Mum's Kitchen Laksa- definitely YUM!
