This stall shares the same name as the famous song by Wang Leehom, and perhaps just one of the reasons why it is well-loved by the residents nearby.
Wei Yi Laksa & Prawn Noodle opens in the wee hours of the morning at 5:30am, but only for 4 days a week.
Their Laksa is so famous that you can see a short line forming even before the stall opens to serve their customers.
The basic Laksa bowl with chicken and fried bean curd starts from $3. You can get their complete bowl of Laksa ($5, $8) which is quite generously filled with chicken, prawns, cockles, and fried bean curd.
Loved the enticing presentation and the mouth-watering aroma of the dish with bright and lovely colours from all the different ingredients.
The chicken slices, prawns and especially the tau pok were delicious when well-soaked in that gravy.
Won’t say that I totally enjoyed the gravy as I found it lacking in that particular “oomph” and was a tad oily. However, if you prefer something lighter yet flavourful, then perhaps this is for you.
So some customers who would come all the way here and queue for a long while (say 30 – 40 minutes and beyond) may find this disappointing.
It was also slightly tangy? But the coconut flavour was pleasantly mild so some would like that aspect.
The stall also serves up Prawn Noodles ($3, $5, $8) though a lot more customers seem to order the Laksa.
It had an old-school taste, with generous ingredients. But between the two, I would pick the Laksa too.
