The fish was fresh and clean tasting, and grilled to a nice golden brown crust with soft steamy insides (see pic 4). The laska paste spaghetti was awesome: It could well have tasted odd with pasta, but it didn't. The light and creamy sauce (easy on laksa leaves, easy on the sambal) went well with the pasta and the seafood, and was delicately balanced so that the dish was tasty as a pasta should be, not overwhelmingly rich in deep local flavours, or overly lemak (in the coconut sense) or too spicy. Any of these oversights would have turned it into a bowl of laksa instead. Naw... Twas like a cat's meow. Purrfect! And yeah, the onsen egg was just thrown in for good measure!
