The Nonya Laksa ($7.20) looked good on the menu, but it turned out not so great. The fishcakes were a little rubbery, and the cockles had an unappetizing greyish tinge. The good thing was that the gravy was not saturated with coconut milk and had just the right amount of spice.
The BF felt like a different spice, so he got the Curry Chicken ($8.20). It might have been that we were one of the last diners of the night so we got the bottom of the barrel, as there were disintegrated chicken bits clogging up the curry gravy. The curry also had a slight smoky/burnt after-taste. Still, this dish was passable.
We got our favourite Garlic Naan ($2.70), sans coriander, to soak up both curry gravies. I love the crisp texture and smoky flavours of the garlic naan.
The BF also indulged in a little Shisamo ($8.50), grilled smelt, which was alright. This was crispy and delicious, and the fatty roe was abundant.
