Guang Fa Laksa 叻沙 (Havelock Road Hawker Centre) - Big, Fresh Cockles!

$5 Laksa

I have heard so much about this laksa but have never ate it due to its location. After all these years, I was glad that work brought me nearby, and I decided to walk over to Havelock Road Hawker Centre for lunch. 

Although I reached just before 12pm, there was already a queue of around 10 pax in front of the stall. It has the longest queue at the hawker centre. The queue moved very slowly because the uncle was the only one taking order, cooking and collecting the payments. 

I ordered the $5 Laksa (with cockles), which is the biggest portion available. May as well right since I had to queue more than 30 minutes and had been waiting to try this for years. 

$5 Laksa

The laksa came with thick bee hoon, hard boiled egg, beansprouts, fishcake, tau pok, cockles, laksa leaves and sambal chilli. The laksa broth is rich, only a little spicy and more on the savoury end, with a slight hint of hae bee hiam. You will need to mix the sambal chilli in or even ask for more chilli if you want a spicy and stronger hae bee hiam taste. 

The star here was the cockles. The cockles were so fresh and oh so big, plump and juicy!! Shiok lah. It is hard to get such big cockles these days. 

Really glad that I got to try this laksa at last after so many years! Do give it a try if you are around the area!
