Laksa from Ghim Moh Market

Having worked at Ghim Moh for almost a decade, the estate seems to be part of me.  I have seen the many changes there.  How many remembers there used to be a McDonald's at the present Kopitiam?  How many remembers that there used to be 5 coffeeshops in that cosy little estate.  Smiling Orchid Cake Shop was part of it and popular among the residents.  Funan Weng Ipoh Hor Fun was a small stall in the Ghim Moh Hawker Centre before the shop was moved to CBD and further expanded it's business to Toa Payoh.

The hawker centre is popular not just with the residents from Ghim Moh as well as from Holland estates.  It also attracted lunch crowds from Science Park, with it's weekly shuttles on Wednesdays and Fridays.  The food centre is extremely crowded on those days and long queues are apparent on a few popular hawker stalls.... Fried Kway Teow, Braised Duck Rice, Steamed Boneless Chicken Rice, Sliced Fish Hor Fun, Chwee Kueh etc.  Food prices are considered very reasonable ... mostly ranging from $2 to $3 for normal portion.

What's for my lunch today? 

Katong Laksa!! Looks good?  It really is not bad.  The rice noodles have been cut to short pieces.  The way to eat this is really just to scoop using the spoon and chop sticks is not needed.  The $3 portion comes with prawns and lots of fishcake.  If you like it bland, this will suit you.  If you prefer it to be more savoury and spicy, add the chilli paste.  The thickness of the gravy is just nice, not too thick nor diluted.
The stall serves fishball noodles and mushroom minced pork noodles too... but look for the sign that says Katong Laksa to make sure you are at the right stall.  =)
