Laksa on a Rainy Tuesday Night

It rained the other night. Cool break from the heat. Time for Laksa at Kopi Tiam...


I think this is a good example of a fusion dish long before that "F" word was conceived, reflecting various influences from Indian, Chinese and Malay cuisine. The blend of flavors, ingredients and spices make this a truly unique dish. A popular spicy noodle dish tracing it origins from Peranakan roots, the fusion of Chinese and Malay cultures have resulted in some pretty interesting and unique dishes. 




Loaded with squid balls, fish cakes, tofu strips, large shrimps and tender chicken breast, it's a filling bowl. And the richness of the coconut milk blends well with the curry spices and heat from the chili flakes. 


The combination of flavors linger long after your through, and the heat from the various spices leave you with  a slight sweat. which cools you from the humidity after the rain.


Kopi Tiiam has one of the better tasting and authentic laksas (P 238) in the metro, check it out if you feel the need for a little heat.

Kopi Tiam is located at 3 Benitez, Horseshoe Area 20, Cubao, Quezon City or call 723-5674 for inquiries.

  4. Mmmm! This is exactly my kind of soup! Screw those European cream-based ones. Spice-filled Asian soups rock. Haha. Love the color and contents of that soup. I could almost smell it from the screen. *drool*
