Landing into the Sci-Fi city of Singapore opens doors, to a whole new kingdom of Michelin star restaurants. And so, on our first trip to Singapore, we pledged to (only) try-out restaurants lauded with stars. Having said that our first day in Singapore was a gushing joy of divine, sunshine beams gleaming through the towering skyscrapers. A beautiful day which got even better when we decided to dine at 328 Katong Laksa. Featuring traditional Asian cuisine, 328 Katong Laksa is a fantastic Michelin-star restaurant to get the taste of authentic Singapore and Malaysia. Located at 51 East Coast Road, Katong Laksa is a compact-Diner with limited seats and menu. On this cheerful sunny-day in December, we chose to sit out for lunch.
Brunching at 328 Katong Laksa
It didn’t take us too long to order! However, during the wait time, we did, take a sneak peek at Katong Laksa’s wall of fame. Which by the way, features Gordon Ramsay who lost the hawker-challenge to the restaurant, a few years back.
Preserving the traditional essence of the Hawker challenge, 328 Katong Laksa certainly lives up to its Michelin star standing. We dig local cuisines, so we thought of giving “Laksa” and “Nesi Lamak” a shot. To go along with our authentic Singaporean and Malaysian cuisine, we ordered a Fresh Thai Coconut, delicious like none other.
Our seafood Laksa was a noodle meal served in a bowl while the Malaysian Nesi Lamak, was served on a Pandan leaf.
Laksa Love at 328 Katong
So, our Laksa turned out to be a deliciously spicy, rice noodle soup stuffed with clams and prawns. Cooked in a soup-like coconut-y curry base, with sour Asam, this dish to us symbolized every bit of the Peranakans. We loved every bite of our Laksa meal at 328 Katong. So much so, that we ended up buying ready-to-make Laksa premium packs before leaving Singapore. Only, so that our family and friends could taste authentic Asian food like, we did.
