“Put My Own Passion Inside”: Why This Couple in Singapore Love Cooking Spicy Seafood Laksa Noodles

*CORRECTION: The map indicators at 0:54 are incorrect. We apologize for the error.*

There are many variations to laksa, a type of spicy noodles found in Southeast Asia. Which one is the best? Our bet’s on this hawker stall in Singapore — a three-time Michelin Bib Gourmand winner run by an elderly couple for the past 22 years.

Shop address: Famous Sungei Road Trishaw Laksa, Hong Lim Market and Food Centre, #02-66, Blk 531A, Upper Cross Street, Singapore, 051531

This is the third episode of our latest “Mean Street Gourmet” series about mom-and-pop stores across the Chinese diaspora. In the next episode, we visit Houston’s first Cantonese restaurant that started 30 years ago.
