Laksa, otah and teh peng from Famous 49 Katong Laksa Maybe its all in my head but all 3 items tasted pretty bland that day. I like my laksa gravy rich and spicy but that day was just blah. I used to prefer eating at 49 over 328 which is just within killer glare distance across the road. I loved the rundown shophouse look, dim lighting and the old ceiling fans. No not being sarcastic lah, don’t anyhow say me ah! I really did like it. Now it still looks the same but somehow the magic is not there anymore. Maybe the owners don’t spend as much time there now…
It has been a while since I had prawn noodles. I’m no prawn noodle expert but this one suits me fine. Finally found another substitute to my favourite grumpy uncle prawn noodles. Dunno where he went, shop owner (who also took over the stall, even managed to copy the recipe quite closely) was reluctant to tell me. Oh well.
Porridge from Tiong Shian Porridge Centre. Not exactly what I came for but it’s okay. Porridge is a nice change.
