Laksa House ~ Malaysian - QVB, City
We thought Laksa House in the QVB was all drab stirfries and suits. Silly us. Laksa House does some great Malaysian street food classics, it's fast and it's cheap.
Hit of the day was the nasi lemak, or 'nasi lema' as it was labelled. $5.90. It comes in banana leaf and traditional Malay cling wrap.
This nasi lemak is delicious: rice is flavoursome and the coconut is not overdone. Inside is half a googie egg, anchovies and peanuts. I love my nasi lemak wrapped in banana leaf, the flavours meld together better. A new favourite.
Hainan Chicken Rice - $8.50. Good chook, flavoursome rice - good value. I've had so many chicken rices lately I'm starting to forget what I'm looking for in this dish, looks like we're going to have to head overseas to refresh our palates...
We went late on a Sunday and a lot of the pre-made Malay dishes were finished up, while the buffet was still going. They had quite a few other treasures to try.
Laksa House is down in the basement at Queen Victoria Building
Level LG2, Shop 17, George Street.
