Janggut Laksa (Roxy Square): The Original Katong Laksa Since 1950s
Katong Laksa…hmm…the battle is still on till today (but cordially)! So who is the real mastermind behind “Katong Laksa” – 328 Katong Laksa, Roxy Laksa, Junggut Laksa or Marine Parade Laksa??? To spare the you the confusion, Junggut Laksa (related to Roxy Laksa) is the real original Katong Laksa and was previously known as Marine Parade Laksa.
Here I am, at the oldest laksa in Katong: Janggut Laksa – The Orginal Katong Laksa!
Traditional method of eating Laksa, by scoop instead of chopsticks!
Check out the colouring of the gravy! Thick and rich in texture and visually appealing. Flavour was truly amazing too. Being a fan of coconut milk based food, Laksa is definitely top of the list. While it is essential, having the proportion is key!
I’m neither a chef nor one who experiments with cooking, but the secret to a good bowl of gravy lies in the Rempah (Spice Paste) and I believe fresh ingredients are essential. Similar to coaching (I’m a sprints & strength coach if you have not realized), there are many good training methodology and techniques out there, but introducing too many at the wrong time and amount can lead to adverse outcomes. In other words, this explains Janggut Laksa’s popularity and longstanding in this business.
As you can see, not a single drop remained! Chilling mixed in for that extra shiokness…mama mia!
Truly legendary and satisfying!
