928 Yishun Laksa (Yishun Central)

This laksa stall is commonly known as the '928 Yishun Laksa'. Why 928? Because this tiny stall is situated at a little corner of Blk 928. This is Yishun’s most famous and best laksa. It is a household name in Yishun. This stall has been around since I was in Secondary school, and that is 15 years ago!

Go to the correct stall. The stall is at the right side of the picture above. Do take note at the left side of the picture with the shutter down, there is a similar laksa stall there. For me, I prefer the one at the right, which  sells the best laksa in Yishun. 

Long queue despite the time being 4pm in the afternoon. 

It is just a tiny stall. But do not under estimate its power. The laksa comes at $2.50 or $3.00. Yes, the owner sells laksa only. And there is always a queue. Oh yes, this stall is featured frequently on TV (food shows), magazines and websites such as Makansutra. 

Laksa $3.00
As the saying goes, a picture speaks a thousand words. Look at the ingredients. Reasonable amount of fish cakes, dried toufu, crabsticks, fresh bean sprouts, half hard boiled egg, lots of thick bee hoon. Normally, it comes with hum. In this case, I requested for no hum (Uncle Mai Hum..haha reminds me of this). Laksa leaves and sambal chilli paste which you can add according to your preference. The laksa gravy is fragrant, rich with bits of dried shrimps, right amount of coconut milk and chilli. Not oily too. It is so fragrant that I find myself drinking spoonful of laksa gravy despite sweating all over and before I knew it I finish the whole bowl! Yes, even all the gravy!  This $3.00 is worth the money. 

The downside is that there is limited space to sit and also be prepared to sweat it out eating this as there is only 1 small fan. But I would say this is one laksa worth sweating and paying for. Give this a try! Who says there is nothing good in the north!

  1. How not drool over laksa since there's so much similarities between the food in Singapore and Malaysia. Its another fav among us esp myself, not only Curry but the asam laksa as well.

    My next trip to Singapore, I will surely try out this stall.
