Sinma Laksa House sits at the famous big roundabout in Kingsford; a Malaysian restaurant far enough away from the university to be not jam packed with hungry students, but customed by a value-seeking crowd nevertheless.
|Prawn crackers from Sinma Laksa House, Anzac Parade, Kingsfoed|
We ordered meals at the counter and snacked on pink prawn crackers, for which I think I'll be forever nostalgic about.
|Penang char kway teo - fried rice noodles|
Treasure hunting for the porky bits are about the best thing ever, amid the wide rice noodles, prawns, fish cake, tiny mussels, lap cheung Chinese sausage and bean sprouts.
|Char kway kak - fried radish cake|
The somewhat floury radish cake makes for a very filling dish that's quite nice the next day with lots of chilli sauce.
The Spanish onion and cucumber on the side, however, looked like they were prepared many, many days ago, while the lontong compressed rice cubes work well to clean up the remaining satay sauce.
Despite the driving school advertisements under the plastic tabletop sheeting and despite an off day for the char kway teo, it's still one of my nearby favourites for CKT and satay.
