Best Laksa in KL

Written by Updated ago

An extremely popular Peranakan dish in Southeast Asia, laksa is typically made with rich coconut milk based curry, assam based broth or even a perfect wed of the two variations. Over time, many have created and reinvented the laksa to their own preference and thus, variations such as the Laksa Johor, Singapore Katong Laksa and Sarawak Laksa amongst others were bred. There are so many types of laksa today but we are definitely not complaining as each and every type are equally delightful to our senses. Find out where to head to for your all-time favourite laksa within Kuala Lumpur here!

    Having been voted as the People's Favorite by The Star, Limapulo: Baba Can Cook has even more to live up to right now. Lucky for us, it is no problem for the man behind the infamous curry laksa, Uncle John. The 73-year-old Baba has been serving his curry laksa with recipes that were passed down for many generations from his Nyonya ancestors of Malacca. He reckons that it is his duty to continue the legacy of authentic Nyonya cuisine. True enough, that has been exactly what he's done for many years - that is serving authentic Nyonya laksa to lucky KL-ites.
    Tips

    Operates Mon-Sat from 12PM-10PM, closed at 3-6PM.

    Things to expect

    One of the best authentic Nyonya cuisine you can find in KL.

    Sekor & CoPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Sekor & Co's laksa isn't your typical bowl of noodles in soup. In fact, it's called a Pahang Laksa, which is usually served dry and resembles a lot like a spaghetti bolognese. Do not worry, it's not Italian. The beautiful topping of fish sauce on top is not only flavourful but coats each of the yellow noodles easily. Simply toss, mix and enjoy. For those who've had Laksa Johor, you might wanna try Sekor & Co's version!

    Located in Jalan Ipoh, Kedai Kopi Ming Sing (star in Cantonese) has been a local favourite for a long time. Expect to see a lot of cute elderly couples or old friends who have been loyal customers of the restaurant for decades.

The dish here is known to be very fragrant and flavorsome with good portions of ingredients (besides the noodles we mean).

    At Grandmama's, Malaysian food is taken up a notch with a beautiful and comfortable ambience and exceptional service. With its 21st century cafe-like ambience, it is quite a different experience to be indulging in Malaysian street food here. Prices, of course, are steep compared to your everyday hawker food meals. However, rest assured that quality and refinery are upheld with beautiful looking, and delightful smelling, local cuisine that does not compromise on taste and flavor!

    Located off Petaling Street, while many dub the area to be a "tourist" spot, it doesn't mean that the food here is any less delicious or authentic. Do you know that the lady owner of the laksa stall in the hawker area has been in business for 50 years? Besides curry laksa, asam laksa is also available here. If you're not a fan of laksa, you might want to try the equally famous Yong Tau Foo right next to the laksa stall. The constant crowd here are definitely driven by the good food Chinatown offers.
    Tips

    Vegetarian options available.

    Things to expect

    A less oily curry laksa!

    Restoran OK has been said to serve the best hawker food within Taman Tun Dr. Ismail and thus, "OK" as their label is probably an understatement. Many have raved for the curry laksa, Sarawak kolo mee, char kuey teow and pan mee to name a few. While Restoran Yong Len is typically hyped, loyals of Restoran OK swear by the latter's upper hand in their hawker food. The curry laksa here is made by the same lady who runs the Char Kuey Teow stall. It is safe to say that most, if not, at least half of the patrons come here for either a bowl of curry laksa or a plate of Penang's fried Kuey Teow.
    Tips

    Generous amount of cockles

    If you are ever in Midvalley and not knowing what to eat, why not pay Sepiring Uniquely Malaysia a visit? They are located on the first floor right at the end of South Court. Their kiosk-like dining area is open and spacious. On top of that, they also offer a wide range of Malaysian favourites such as curry laksa, nyonya laksa and asam laksa. All of which is done in that tiny kitchen of theirs, which is quite surprising considering the quality that they are capable of. It's rich, it's flavourful and it's quite nicely plated. Oh, they also have a pretty good durian crepe dessert!

    Hailing from Penang, Hawker Street is owned and operated by a couple who wants to share the love and passion for Penang food to the rest of KL. Finding them is not all that difficult, but parking definitely is. Fortunately, all that trouble is well worth the effort simply because their food is absolutely delicious. Just clean, hearty, wholesome and honest food. Nothing too pretentious, everything is done just nice. You will find everything from asam laksa to Penang Hokkien Mee (otherwise known as prawn mee here in KL), Penang white curry mee and even a light bowl of pork minced kuey teow.
