Personally enjoyed the the Laksa Johor most. In fact, this is also the evergreen noodle dish in TSuka Bangsar. Thick, flavourful fish gravy topped over spaghetti, accompanied by bean sprouts, cucumber, onions, vietnamese mint (daun kesum), basil (daun selasih), pickled radish and special sambal garam. Have to highlight that the sambal garam is so on point – fresh, spicy, so good. Wish to have more.
Not to forget, the Cucur Udang – probably one of the we have tasted in KL. Generous portion, crispy golden brown, loaded with whole prawns. Must-try. Sooooo nice. Already planning to return for their Lor Bak, Keropok Lekor, Vietnamese Spring Rolls.
