Famous Sungei Road Trishaw Laksa

The stall sells Laksa, Mee Rebus and Mee Siam. Daniel Soo has been running this stall with his wife for 12 years. Today we are here on a food tasting session by OpenRice.

The signature dish for today is Fruit Juice Crayfish Mee Siam ($6).

Mee Siam, which means “Siamese noodle”, is a dish of thin rice noodles ( vermicelli ) in spicy, sweet and sour light gravy. It is a common one-dish meal in Singapore and Malaysia.

For the version served here, no Assam water (processed tamarind juice) is added. Instead replaced with “Secret Ingredients”, which cannot be revealed which I think is fresh lime juice. Tastes more tangy and sour than usual. Light and fresh too.

The owner also shares with us about his 2 other dishes on the menu. The Mee Rebus has potato added. Interesting, what has potato got to do with the dish. Make the gravy thick? But I am quite full already, will check out another time. As for the Laksa, it took his whole morning to make the gravy.

Thank you OpenRice and Estelle for inviting me. I have never tasted such unique Mee Siam before.
