After visiting Malaysia a few weeks ago, I suddenly had a craving for a good laksa. That delicious, rich, curry, coconut, spicy broth. Lots of noodles and generous vegetables and chicken or seafood… drool!
I was in the city and Malacca Restaurant came up multiple times with high reviews and comments like ‘best laksa in Brisbane!’ So I hit the pavement, excited to try this raved-about laksa. I only just noticed the Zomato review wasn’t great- should have known to check there.
The restaurant itself was very unassuming. A little sign outside and a fairly plain interior, nothing surprising. I ordered my laksa, the signature with chicken and waited impatiently.
The laksa arrived fairly quickly, a generous serving and looked delicious. Then came the sense of utter disappointment after the first mouthful. It was bland. It had a dull taste of laksa but lacked that richness and intensity you usually find in a good bowl.
I ate a little so I was no longer hungry and left the rest. Slightly flavoured noodles and a bit of chicken really doesn’t do it for me. The best part was the eggplant.
Anyone know where I can find amazing laksa in Brisbane?!
