It was a rare occurrence to venture out into the burbs that I really wanted to try something good when we do. On a particular Saturday we ventured out to Doncaster. I have heard a lot about Straits Cafe and have been dying to try it for years, so I insisted on going there this time.
I heard that the Fish Head Bee Hoon $13 was fantastic so I decided to try that, while hubby got the curry laksa $9.9. My fish head bee hoon looked good, but it just wasn’t as good as the one I have tasted in Singapore! The fish, which was deep fried, was over cooked and tough. The soup tasted ok, but it felt like it had a bit of MSG in it. The soup doesn’t actually taste as creamy as the ones we had in Singapore either.
Hubby didn’t like his curry laksa at all. It was funny cos I was talking to Fatboo the other day, apparently real laksa doesn’t have curry in it!! Hubby said even Laksa King is better (and he doesn’t even like Laksa King!!)
