Laksania - Bugis+ 201 Victoria Street #04-04 Singapore 188067 Tel:6636 9776 http://www.laksania.com/singaporelaksa.html
Laksania is pronounced as laksa-nia with a hokkien accent. It means they sell only Laksa here! Creative isn’t it? I was just browsing their website and I can’t wait to head down again to try their Laksa burgers, Laksa pasta, Laksa rice and hotpot!
Laksa with a social cause! Laksania is a social enterprise that was started in 2008. Their social mission is to help people who have been marginalised by their mental or physical disability to gain employment. They believe in the saying: “Give a man a fish and you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish and you have fed him for life”. They employ the marginalised and enable them to earn a living using their own efforts. Hence, they set up a central kitchen in IMH to hire and train IMH clients.
From top to bottom:
Kelantan Laksa – Kelantan laksa is served with thick rice noodles and generous amounts of fish meat. Sliced cucumbers, laksa leaves and homemade fresh chili paste are served on the side.
Singapore Laksa – Our Singapore Laksa packs a punch with its awesome flavour and spiciness. Guaranteed to satisfy your laksa cravings!
Sarawak Laksa – Originating from the Malaysian state of Sarawak on Borneo Island, Sarawak laksa is spicy and flavourful, with prawn and chicken broth served with fine rice vermicelli.
Chicken Satay with laksa soup based dressing – very interesting for I have never tried dipping laksa sauce with satay. Refreshing and very laksa!
