This morning we were up early to try the famous curry laksa at Madras Lane, one of the small lanes at Petaling Street.
It is not easy to find the Penjaja Gallery and to locate this stall, you’ll have to navigate yourself through the morning wet market or walk to the back of Pak Peng Building from Petaling Street. If you are coming from Jalan Tun H.S. Lee., look for the Chinese Temple. Walk through the lane beside it and turn right at the first turning and you’ll find yourself on Madras Lane. This curry laksa stall is located at the end of this lane.
There are only 4 items on the menu – Curry Laksa with or without Chicken, Pork Ball Soup Noodles and Fish Ball Soup Noodles. A small bowl of curry laksa only costs RM6.00 whereas a big bowl costs RM7.00. For Curry Laksa with Chicken, expect to pay a little bit more – RM8.00. As expected, our laksa was rich in flavours and had a thick consistency to it. It comes with chunks of chicken with bones, cockles, fried beancurd skins, tofu, brinjals and long beans.
If the curry is not spicy enough, you may add more sambal paste. Limes are also given to those who like their curry laksa sourish. And what better to pair the curry laksa if not a nice cup of rich and foamy ice coffee.
For your information, the Chee Cheong Fun and the Yong Tou Fu here are quite famous as well. It is advisable to come early if you do not wish to wait as the crowd gets bigger in the afternoon as many are out for lunch.
In case you were wondering whether there are any seats here, you should be happy to know that there are tents outside of Madras Lane, which is just next to the car park. You should only sit near the curry laksa stall as like any other hawker centres, they do not serve those who sit at another stalls’ tables.
