Laksa King

It’s been ages since I have had a laksa so I thought a trip to the Laksa King seemed like the obvious solution. The Laksa King is positioned in a beautiful area of Flemington with lovely old houses and tree lined streets. We thought we might have to book a table but we arrived just after noon and had no problem finding a table. Things did start to get really busy later though so don’t leave it too late!


We ordered some Chinese Tea which cost only $0.60 per head. Much better value than HuTong Dumpling Bar which charge $3.00 per head. Now feeling refreshed, we started with some Roti with satay sauce ($6.80). The roti was tasty and not too greasy which can be a problem with roti sometimes. The satay sauce was quite sweet but also delicious.

Now, for the laksa... I narrowed it down to two choices: The ‘Vegetarian curry laksa ($9.80) with mixed seasonal vegetables and tofu’ which is also vegan friendly and the ‘Combination curry laksa ($9.80) with mixed noodles, shrimp, fishcake and chicken’. I decided to have the Combination curry laksa. This was absolutely the best laksa I have ever had. A gigantic bowl of a very flavoursome broth that was nice and spicy. It was full of noodles and I loved the additional pillows of luscious tofu and creamy eggplant. The roti helped to cool my mouth when needed.

My friend chose the Scallop curry laksa ($14.50). This was even better than my laksa. It was jam-packed with lots of juicy scallops and I think I will give this laksa a go next time...

The service was super friendly and we felt very welcomed. We left the Laksa King full of delicious Malaysian cooking and definitely needed to burn it off with a walk around the gorgeous backstreets...
