From the Burpple community

The highlight from this bowl is the balanced between coconut milk and the broth. It's lighter taste compare to other laksa.
Beside that, i found grounded shrimp bits in it, which definitely enhanced the flavour of the gravy.
💰$5.

As many have said previously, the laksa broth is so slurp-worthy that I literally wiped clean the entire bowl within minutes, something that George himself noticed and commented that I must be very hungry. The outstanding thing about this bowl of laksa has got to be the gravy, which as you stir, you will notice grounded shrimp bits in it and every spoonful is just an umami burst of seafood flavour. What’s different from others is that the rest of the pack tends to go heavy on the coconut cream/milk that they add into the broth to thicken it but George manages to get the magical amount to make sure that the broth does get make you feel surfeited and yet the santan gives it a nice consistency to the overall texture with a fragrant aroma.

There are 3 different size options ($4.50/$5/6) and this bowl is the $5 portion which comes with a reasonable amount of thick bee hoon, some bean sprouts, fish cake and a generous amount of prawns which might be because I opted for no cockles in my laksa. George himself also jokingly mentioned to other customers in the queue that for the $5 and $6 options, you can either choose more noodles or more ingredients. Huge thanks to Alan from @malaccamakanking for recommending me this place and the pro tip is to give George a call before heading down as his laksa sells out very quickly.

A bowl of laksa can only shine with a spicy coconut-based soup, which is the soul of this Peranakan dish.

The seed was planted when I saw Chef Alan Chan (Instagram: @malaccamakanking) post about this stall on his Instagram Stories. It took root and budded after I learned from @cyrenedelarosa who visited with @kfseetoh that she really enjoyed it too. I finally made my way down to the stall at 37 Changi Road today as my curiosity could no longer be contained. I did come close to missing out on tasting the laksa though because a couple of bulk orders were put in. Fortunately, I had heeded Chef Alan’s advice and called ahead so I managed to “chope” a serving. After digging into my portion, I get why George Katong Laksa has ardent fans.
To me, it tastes like a cross between Janggut Laksa and the Sungei Road one located at Jalan Berseh (my all-time favourite). George’s gravy has an obvious sandiness from finely-minced dried shrimp which gives it more savouriness and an almost meaty taste.
Being a friendly gentleman, he shared with me how he has tried to perfect every aspect of his version too. For eg. the thick “beehoon” (rice noodles) is washed twice and left to soak so they can soften and be able to absorb the laksa gravy better.
To be frank, I prefer this much more than 328 Katong Laksa which is too “lemak” (rich) for my personal taste. A $5 serving which is what I got, comes with a generous amount of noodles, small prawns sliced lengthwise, strips of fishcake, small cockles, a heap of laksa leaves and if you like it spicier, a dollop of George’s homemade sambal.

A friend introduced me this laksa place over at Telok Kurau, which happened to be called Katong Laksa. It is a long standing laksa stall that has braved the weathers for more than 20 years as my friend recalls. The laksa gravy is fragrant and the chili goes well with it when evenly mixed. Fairly generous amount of cockles which are juicy. Personally, I’m not a laksa fan, no thanks to 328, but I think after this meal I just became a convert.

My ultimate go-to comfort food — laksa! The best laska I have eaten so far is the one at Kopi Talk Coffee Shop, located at 1 Telok Kurau Road. This place is very special to me, as it holds a lot of history. My husband has been eating here since his school days in 1989, and when we met in 1995, he brought me here. Ever since then, I have been in love with this laksa, and make it a point to come here at least once a week. The store owner, George, and his family, have literally seen my hubby grow up, and even start a family of his own. Now, my daughter also loves this laksa! The lemak is very fragrant as George uses coconut milk, and minced small dried shrimps to make the broth. Fortunately for us, his son will take over his legacy when he retires, so we will always have laksa to eat! #hawkerpedia
