My curiosity was piqued by the name of the dish - chicken with laksa leaf. And true to it's name, it had the spicy curry coconut-based broth similar to that of laksa with the familiar tau pok and chopped laksa leaves. The chicken in the curry was tender and the curry was not as heavy as it looked, and fiery level was kept mild. It was super-licious to mix with the fragrant Jasmine rice.

A must-order when I'm at a Peranankan restaurant. The blackened rice dish is simply bittersweet unami, thanks to the keluak, with charred notes from the wok hey. The sambal was mild and could do with more for an added fiery punch.

Food is an adventure in itself. More to explore. Even more to share.
