Ah Cheng Laksa

With a name like Ah Cheng Laksa, you would’ve expected the makan place to be a stall somewhere in a wet market or some five foot corners. But you’ll be surprised because you can find Ah Cheng Laksa in Chineleisure Damansara. That’s right …. smacked right in the middle of a prime shopping location.

And it’s located there for a good reason too! If you’ve been to Cineleisure, you will know that this mall is well known for it’s cinema, rather than shopping …. and of course, food eateries. There’s Tony Roma’s, Manhattan Fish Market, McDonalds and the latest, Senjyu Sushi & Sakae Izakaya. Then there’s also the kopitiam style cafe’s such as Kopi Oh! and also Ah Cheng Laksa.

Well, there’s mixed opinion about Ah Cheng Laksa. Some bloggers like Symphonie felt that Ah Cheng Laksa is a “bloody rip-off, and a downright lie”. But then, there’s also bloggers such as Sixthseal who finds them “Delicious! It’s very appetizing” while Lessthanten felt that “they won’t fail”. Finally, we have also Kuan Food Fetish that says Ah Cheng Laksa “offers good laksa and noodles at the most affordable price”.

There you go, different people, different opinion … different taste bud, hence different appetite. Right?

Assam Fish

As for me, Ah Cheng Laksa is my temporary cure for craving of home-cooked food. I liked their food, especially the Assam Fish cooked with ladies finger. I am a sucker for ladies finger (the food kind ok … well, I’m fine with the other one too …) and the curry sauce is, just as good with rice.

Besides the Assam Fish, you would want to try their Nasi Lemak Petai and also the Curry Laksa. The Curry Laksa came in second for me … because of ……. “see ham !!!!” (that’s cockels). Non-chinese might read that as ….See Ham? (No ham involved in this sequence).

    Been here before and I think the price is still affordable, since it’s located inside a mall.

  4. Nate Said,

    I think if I see ham, I’d want to eat it. But if I see cockles, pass.

    I wonder if there’s a place called Ah Beng Laksa…
