Curry Laksa at The Straits Cafe

I drove to Bandar Utama to hunt for Curry Laksa (or Curry Mee) the other day from Puchong despite rain and thunder, just because I was craving for Laksa suddenly.

In the end, I landed myself in Centre Point of Bandar Utama.

The straits café used to be standing shop-stand in the middle of the centre point on the open compound inside. But now they’ve moved to a corner shop situated just behind Black Cayon.

I used to come here for my weekly dose of Prawn Mee when I was staying in PJ almost two years ago. I even brought my mom here. To be honest, they serve a kiss ass prawn noodle I’ve tasted anywhere else, it could be a bit pricey coming at RM7.50 for a bowl for noodle but it’s so worth it cause I *heart* it.

But then I don’t feel like prawn noodle that day, maybe another day.

I also ordered a cup of ice teh tarik to compromise with my dish.

Overall, it wasn’t a very impressive Curry Laksa, I definitely had better. Oh how I missed my favourite Sarawak Curry Laksa in Kuching. T_T

I don’t like it, it’s a smelly food.


The bill came and I thought it was alright provided the size of the bowl has always been able to impress me. (I’m a sucker for size… la la la)

Do come here for their prawn mee, which I would say it’s the ONLY thing you should order when you’re here.

Hey Nicole,

In one of your older blogs, you had this fantastic photo of a bowl of Sarawak Laksa. Where did you get the laksa from? I will be visiting Kuching next week, so I would like to go there!

I think I mentioned the place in that entry.

The shop's called Madam Tang's.

You eat crippy-crawlies and worms but not cockles? Gosh, that sounds like crime :D

It's Sarawak Sambal Laksa, not curry laksa lar!

Magnus said...

I grew up in Kuching, and we just call it laksa! Not sambal or curry laksa.

I have never heard of Madam Tang's, must be a new place...

Nicocoa said...

whisperingshout: but but.. cockles are so smelly

jing yi: wa.. so special term

magnus: is it? Kenny recommended that place to me, seems it's been there for a quite a while.

Magnus said...

I guess I have been away from Malaysia for too long! The prawns sure look good though...

Do you know any other good eating places?

The best Prawn mee in town is in Centerpoint, and it's NOT there.

It's upstairs at Champs.

Chicken Rice and Nasi Lemak is good at Bernard's too.

Nicocoa said...

Oh I do agree.. but it's so bloody expensive there...

Magnus said...

Where is Bernard's?

And where is Centrepoint?

Sorry.. a bit outdated.
