328 Katong Laksa @ Bandar Puteri Puchong

328 Katong Laksa brings the recipe of its well-known Singaporean namesake to the Klang Valley, helmed by a Malaysian-Singaporean couple who reputedly have familial ties to the island republic's East Coast Road outlet founders. This is laksa lemak that hits the spot - rice noodles immersed in coconut milk broth (mildly sweet-spicy, moderately creamy but not cloying) with cockles, chicken, prawns, sliced fish cakes, hard-boiled eggs, laksa leaves, bean sprouts & 328's signature sambal paste.

Best to head here on weekdays for lunch, when set meals offer stronger value for money - a bowl of 328's aromatic laksa with otak-otak & a beverage (barley, chrysanthemum or monk fruit herbal drink) costs RM13.90 nett, 10:30am-3pm, Mondays through Fridays (except Tuesdays). At other times, a basic bowl, easily enough for one person, hovers slightly north of RM12.

  1. We have an outlet here - the laksa there sure looks a whole lot nicer than what they serve here...and they do not come cheap! Not crazy about the otak otak either - here, the packets are BIG...and inside, there is just teeny-weeny little piece. Taste is ok, like the frozen ones at the supermarket. That is why I have never gone back again.

    1. Suituapui: yeah, when it comes to otak-otak at most outlets these days, there's not very much in each packet ... too bad, since it's nice when there's a thick, luscious slice to sink our teeth into :)

  2. I do love a bowl of good curry laksa. The noodles are different from the usual meehoon mee types...is that thick meehoon (cho mai fun)? This one comes with a green chilli paste?

    1. Contact.ewew: ooo, those noodles were pretty much somewhere in between bee hoon and regular mee, in terms of thickness ... but yeah, definitely significantly thicker than bee hoon ... and that green stuff is actually shredded laksa leaves (i believe they're daun kesom in malay) :)

  6. The broth looks very creamy and I noticed they use noodle that looks like thin version of laksa noodle instead of the meehoon and yellow noodle. Are they?
