The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Delicious laksa @ the original 328 Katong Laksa, Singapore

Greetings from Kaohsiung! We have been here since Saturday morning, and we fly back to Hong Kong tomorrow afternoon! We love this southern Taiwanese city, with so many friendly people with smiling faces, and the bike-friendly attitude. We've been having fun exploring Kaohsiung on bicycles and stuffing ourselves silly with all the Taiwanese food, snacks and drinks. I have so many photos to show-and-tell, but that will have to wait until I'm back home. For now, here is the final post from our trip to Singapore not too long ago.

We are big fans of all the varieties of laksa (spicy noodle soup), and hubby particularly likes the coconut-based laksa lemak, a type of curry laksa with a rich coconut gravy. Katong Laksa is a type of laksa lemak from Katong that we first encountered at a Singaporean restaurant in HK named after this district in Singapore. We paid a visit to the original 328 Katong Laksa which is considered by many locals to serve the best laksa in Singapore.

Small air-conditioned dining room; there were more tables outside:

We only ordered one bowl of laksa because we were still full from eating Nonya cakes and dumplings. Regardless of how full my tummy was, I could still enjoy the richly-scented coconut curry with the generous portion of peeled prawns. It was really good! I found myself wanting more with each bite, but my stomach was pleading for me to stop! The noodles were cut so that the whole bowl could be eaten using only a spoon.

This bowl of laksa was well worth the trip out to the east coast of Singapore:

That was the epitome of delicious in one bowl.
