I've read about this stall for the longest time, & have always walked past it but never tried. My dad ordered a bowl of laksa ($4 small/$5 medium/$6 large - prices are nett) & wanted to share - I couldn't say no.

I was surprised to find the soup not viscous at all; in fact, I was afraid with such thin soup, I'd be disappointed.

My fears were alleviated as I slurped my first spoonful - the soup is on the lemak side, but overall good flavour. Without adding any extra chilli paste (i.e. this is the default), the spicyness really hits the back of your throat. Have a drink prepared if you, just like me, don't eat spicy food much!

The thick bee hoon 粗米粉 noodles were a bit too soft for my liking, but absorbed the soup well. In terms of ingredients, they were alright in terms of variety, & fairly fresh. Plenty of shredded chicken, a dismal single prawn, several taupok pieces, cockles & beansprouts.

In all, this was a delicious bowl of laksa. I'm not head over heels in love with it, but I'd eat it again. Just not too often as it isn't the most healthy dish!

Worth the hype!!! The soup was not as thick as 328 Katong Laksa but just as good. I appreciated that there were no cockles and the inclusion of tender chicken was much appreciated. Wish there were more tau pok though.. :C

Claypot Laksa Small $4, Medium $5, Large $6. Continuously awarded Bib Gourmand award from 2016 till current. Love indulging laksa in claypot, keeping them hot till our last sip of gravy! Thick and qq thick bee hoon fully infused with their fragrant laksa gravy with lots of juicy taupok, beansprouts and cockles! So comforting and shiok, definitely satisfied our laksa craving! .

Depot Road Zhen Shan Mei has won the Michelin Bib Gourmand award for the fourth year straight, so naturally I had to go and investigate if it was worthy of the almost-Michelin star, or if someone somewhere had been paid off.

Based on taste alone, the answer would be a resounding “why the hell doesn’t this have a Michelin star yet?” The laksa gravy was quite possibly the richest, most luscious laksa gravy I’ve ever tasted. With just enough heat to get you hot & bothered, it was remarkably redolent.

Zhen Shan Mei definitely lost the chance for a star with their portion sizes, however. This is the five buck portion, and apparently someone thought it would be an absolutely hysterical practical joke to call it the ‘medium’. It ain’t nothin’ but a snack, lemme tell you that right now.

The four cockles within apparently suffered from crippling dwarfism, and the solitary shrimp was decidedly lonely. There’s an alright amount of shredded chicken within, which is definitely un-traditional af, and an attempt was made to compensate by giving a bit more tau pok.

It certainly seems that the six dollar portion would be the only way to go. Considering just how doggone delicious this luscious laksa is, it’s probably worth it.

1. Zhen Shan Mei Depot Road Claypot Laksa
(Alexandra Village Food Centre) ($4)

Listed in Michelin’s Guide 17 and 18, queue could still be seen at the stall. Take the claypot out and it would just be a decent bowl of laksa to us.
The gravy wasn’t the lemak type which was a minus point to us. Even so, it lacked the fragrance though the gravy was thick. The chilli didn’t help much either.
Flavour-wise, this didn’t work for us. Not sure how the claypot worked for others, but it wasn’t hot enough to keep the heat in the laksa. Strike-3 was a good enough conclusion for us.
