The Laksa Contender! I know I said the last one was the best Laksa Sarawak I've ever had, well I found yet ANOTHER cafe that serves a really delicious worth-waking-up-for Laksa Sarawak in town. And because I love it so much, this is now on top of the list of all the best Laksa, in my opinion. Haha that is, until I can find another one that either matches or topples it.
Anyway, it's here at The House Cafe, Jalan Padungan (right next to Wisma Mahmud, and facing the river directly). The stall - Alfred Laksa. Serving every morning until 11.am at least, and closed on Sunday.Alfred and the boys look like they are regulars at the gym too. =)

The gravy packs a punch, the chicken meat is tender, the coriander leaves is in generous amount, and the prawn - springy and medium size. Ask for the specials, it comes with extra chicken meat (with the skin etc). The special however, normally finishes off as early as 9.30am, sometimes 10.00am and is RM11 per bowl. After that, you can make do with the 'big portion' which is the normal laksa but is served in a big bowl, none of the extra chicken meat.

I'm currently teaching my little girl to appreciate Laksa like her mommy does, so her initiation has been pretty adventurous and she's adapting well to it - starting off with the vermicelli noodle/bihun minus the gravy, sometimes the chicken meat only or the eggs only with an after taste of the gravy. And today I just fed her a few spoonful of bihun right off my bowl and the chicken meat, and I must say I'm proud of her taking it so well and not minding the spicy taste at all.

By now, you should know I am sucker for Laksa Sarawak. Can't have enough of them. Oh my weightloss journey is still proceeding steadily and although Laksa packs a mean bowl of calories, it's ok because it's breakfast and you know what they say about breakfast. Never skip it. Have a good July y'all!
