My Bowl of Laksa at Nanyang Old Coffee

"There's nothing more comforting than a bowl of piping hot soup especially on a rainy night."

Whoever uttered those words are quite on point! I mean, we all feel good whenever we eat a warm meal but it is much more welcome when the weather is perfect for it. So here I am, while Ompong is hovering near the PAR (a.k.a. typhoon Mangkhut), suddenly find myself craving for a hot bowl of laksa.



And the only laksa that I can think of right now was the one I had in Singapore a couple of weeks ago. Really, really good laksa.

It wasn't really my intention to eat laksa when I went to SG Chinatown but when I found myself in front of this shop- Nanyang Old Coffee.


Upon checking the menu, I decided to order the laksa. At first, I was thinking of just getting some Kaya toast and iced drink but changed my mind when I saw the laksa.


The place is kinda small as compared to other restaurants nearby. It has a seating capacity of about 18 pax. What I noticed though is that a lot of people go to this place to buy take out food and coffee. And it's famous for its coffee.


I got myself a bowl of laksa that costs SGD $5. I was told that if I add $.80 it comes with hot or cold coffee. Right now, I felt stupid for not ordering coffee but that time, I just have a few hours left before my flight back to Manila so I dare not be adventurous with food pairing.

And its a huge bowl of laksa! Well, not really huge (I'm exaggerating a bit) but upon seeing all those toppings, I don't think my tummy can finish the whole bowl. Aside from the noodles, there's hardboiled egg (half), 2 shrimps, 2 fish slices fish cake, and 2 slices beancurd.

I requested for a mildly spiced laksa and it was so good. The soup was very creamy because of coconut milk and it really pairs well with the curry flavor. Of course, there are many unidentified flavors that includes the seafood toppings and everything just seem to go well with each other and create a satisfyingly delicious meal.



The serving is good for sharing especially if you want to try the other dishes on the menu.

Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.
