    This might be a change of dining scene for laksa lovers, gobbling down your favourite dish in an air-conditioned and hipster cafe with swirls of “Laksalicious” on the wall and chic settings. Staying true to the name, laksa is the headliner here, where you can have two choices during weekend – Assam Laksa and Nyonya Lemak Laksa. On the other hand, no visit here is deemed complete without wrapping your lips around their Nyonya Kuihs which are prepared with premium ingredients and presented neatly. Earning praises are their Kuih Talam that comprises the perfect concoction of coconut and pandan flavour, and Kuih Kaya has a thick slab of rich kaya tagging along that leaves you wanting more.
