Over the past few years I've developed an interest in the Peranakan (Straits Chinese) culture, and I was fortunate to visit Katong earlier this year
Located in Eastern Singapore, the culinary specialty is Katong laksa which consist of a rich coconut broth, strips of fish cakes and bean shoots. Unlike other laksas, the dish is eaten with a spoon as the noodles are short. We went to 328 Joo Chiat Place where one of my favourite food presenters, Anthony Bourdain filmed his program "No Reservations". The laksa was accompanied with rojak (salad) and lime juice - yum!
