108 Little Lonsdale St
(Got too lazy. But I’m back, hopefully for much much longer before I get lazy again - it’s a given.)
The first of my weekly Thursday lunch dates with a fellow Melbourne Uni friend! I’ve got a two hour lunch break, so that can get you pretty far out and back to class in time.
The first week, we went to Laksa Bar at the insistence of one of our other good friends. Be warned, they’re closed on Sundays which we found out when we tried to go a few Sundays ago - sad. It’s located between Russell and Exhibition Streets so just a short walk from Swanston St and the ‘main’ city area.
Being named Laksa Bar, we both went straight for the Laksa. There were two options when we went (March) - the House Curry Laksa or a lighter (skim) version. There, you can match it with your meat of choice (chicken, soft shell crab) or tofu as a vegetarian option. And lastly, you can pick either a small or regular size.
I got the Chicken House Curry (pictured), and my friend got the soft shell crab House Curry - both regular sizes… The regular size is massive! Apart from the noodles, they give you a whole bunch of other surprises in your bowl - fish balls, fishcakes, bean sprouts and crunchy other things. Needless to say, we weren’t able to finish it BUT that had no relation to how deep the flavours were. The broth was a good level of spicy, and filled with all the typical flavours you’d find in a curry laksa - rich but not too oily.
As a little cute touch - bibs are available at the front counter to counteract any splashes from eating the laksa. Handy especially for all the business workers that come here during their lunch break.
Would definitely recommend for a quick easy lunch (or dinner) that’s quite affordable but very filling.
Get on it guys! :D
A whole bunch of foodie offerings for the whole month - very very excited.
mymidnightwanders asked: shouldn't you be studying for exams? why are you visiting all these restaurants? :P
A mix of procrastination/study break/I just really like food, exams won’t stop me/I don’t have exams (just a whole bunch of assignments).
