This is my first time trying laksa steamboat and the one I had at San Laksa was pretty good! We chose laksa and chicken soup as our soup base, as well as an array of ala carte ingredients which amounted to $150 for 4 pax. This is quite value-for-money given that there was a one-for-one deal for the seafood platter and ribeye beef platter on Burpple Beyond.

The laksa broth is flavourful, smooth and delicious, and it goes well with ingredients such as pork belly, dumplings, taupok and tofu skin roll. The fried meatballs are nice too. The seafood platter is really worth it - it comes with tiger prawns, baby octopus and an assortment of shells, clams and mussels. There is a wide variety of noodles to choose from and I like the pairing of Champon noodles (reminds me of Japanese ramen) and thick bee hoon with laksa.

On the downside, I didn’t really enjoy the chicken soup as it was not very robust or flavourful (not sure if that was because we were having laksa on the other side which was very flavourful), and the ribeye beef platter was a little too beefy/gamey for my liking.

Having said that, this is still a very enjoyable steamboat dinner and the laksa did not disappoint!
