If you like your laksa with a luxe twist, there’s a new hole-in-the-wall kopitiam stall called Maa Gei at Neil Road that sells Abalone Laksa at $10. The month-old stall also offers a no-frills version for $4, as well as Dumpling Noodles ($5) and Ban Mian ($5), which you can also have with abalone.
The stall owner, who only wanted to known as Leng, tells 8days.sg that abalone laksa was added to the menu two weeks ago and it already has its fans. Unlike the Nyonya laksa that is commonly found in Singapore, the laksa here is adapted from a Muar laksa recipe that Leng learned from his ex-boss. According to Leng, Muar laksa is more a “cross between curry and laksa”, and evaporated milk is added to make it creamier.
