Laksa’s easy to find in Singapore – you can tell by just visiting the cluster of laksa stalls in the east. But you know what’s not easy to find? Really die-die-must-try-super-shiok laksa!
Here are five of your favourite laksa stalls… slurp away!
1. 328 Katong Laksa @ Joo Chiat
Every day crowds flock to 328 Katong Laksa to indulge in bowls of spicy goodness. The laksa here has the right amount of coconut cream and isn’t as heavy as some other stalls like to make (thus you won’t feel that bloated after finishing a bowl). Enjoy scooping up the short laksa noodles with what else, but a spoon!

Fancy some laksa… in a claypot? That’s right, at Depot Road Zhen Shan Mei, that’s how you can expect your laksa to be served. Belly-warming, bubbling and piping hot, the claypot laksa here is made complete with generous ingredients like prawns, cockles, tau pok and fishcakes. If you have a big appetite, you might want to consider ordering the $4.50 bowl instead of the $3.50 one!
3. Famous Sungei Road Trishaw Laksa @ Hong Lim Food Centre & Market
If you’re a fan of trying different versions of a dish, then visit Hong Lim Food Centre & Market for this famous laksa stall. The gravy is actually more like soup (so, calling it ‘gravy’ would be kind of a misnomer), which makes it perfect for those who stay away from laksa gravy all because of its distinct thickness.
4. Terry Katong Laksa @ Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre
Patrons love the laksa here for many reasons. Generous portions (noodles, ingredients), spicier than usual gravy that’s not very oily and ultimately, cheap prices! For only $3, you get to satisfy your laksa craving. Throw in that equally cheap, huge glass of sugarcane and your meal would be complete!
5. 151 Katong Laksa @ Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre
Another laksa stall worth trying at Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre is 151 Katong Laksa. With fresh cockles and juicy prawns swimming around in the delicious orangey-red gravy, all you have to do is take one look at the laksa here and you’ll be drooling for sure.
