Ah Cheng Laksa has been around for ages but I have never been. One evening my partner had to work late. He knew I would not be pleased because this auntie likes to go home early.
And he knew his grumpy lady would be appeased by food. Blame that on my late grandmother who used to bribe me with kuehs and such. Hah!
So he suggested asam laksa at Ah Cheng Laksa@The Starling.
Since we are both big eaters, one bowl of asam laksa each was not enough.
We got a Chai Kueh to share.
I loved this. Crammed full of chives and very nice to eat with the chili sauce. The skin was very fragile and tore easily.
We also got ourselves a lobak. Made with chicken of course.
It was surprisingly good. The taste is spot on.
Of course this was the star of the show. Perhaps we should not compare this to Penang Asam Laksa.
I suggested we add fish which I subsequently felt was not necessary as there was already adequate fish in the laksa gravy.
We had longan for drinks and my partner said it was very good. Not too sweet.
I guess we would come here again when we crave for asam laksa.
