If you only have time for one meal in Jalan Besar, let it be this widely acclaimed, family-run laksa stall. Sungei Road Laksa's coconut milk broth is simmered over charcoal fire, resulting in a flavourful yet light gravy that you can slurp up without feeling jelat. The sweet yet savoury broth is mildly spicy, so those looking to enjoy a spicier gravy will want to follow Tastemaker Wei Zhi Chiang's advice and stir in a few spoonfuls of their sambal. Coupled with fresh cockles, fishcake slices and slippery bee hoon, the one-size only Laksa ($3) is eaten with just a spoon — no chopsticks needed!
Avg Price: $5 per person
