328 Katong Laksa

A bowl of spicy, piping hot laksa hits the spot this dreary, rainy afternoon.

The bf and I were at the famous 328 Katong Laksa, located at 53 East Coast Road, right opposite Roxy Square. There's no menu here, just plain ol' laksa in Small ($4), Medium ($5) or Large ($6), with hum (cockles) or no, and otah.

Small laksa

Waiting time for the laksa was short, which was good because I was seriously starving then. By right, diners can eat the laksa with just the spoon as the beehoon has already been cut into short pieces, but I felt uncomfortable doing so and requested for chopsticks, which the uncle brusquely pointed to the wall and told me to get it myself. Forget about service here.

The laksa was not too spicy; lots of cockles and fishcake; prawns were fresh and peeled to save diners the trouble. I found the gravy to be on the watery side, which was kinda disappointing because I like my laksas creamy and thick. I seriously don't get the hype for 328's laksa - I mean it's ok, but don't understand its immense popularity and uber good reviews.

As for the otah ($1.20), the word average basically sums it all up.
