Bo Laksa King's--weekend specials

I thought this should be a new topic since it's not about Laksa in Western Canada, but thanks to flowbee on that thread for mentioning the first of BLK's weekend specials.

They have a couple this weekend. The first is a Burmese soup called mohingar. Bo said it took 5 hours to make this fish broth, and it's well worth it. Just as good as the laksa broth. There are rice noodles, cut up fried Chinese donuts, torn up mint leaves, fried onions (?), a lime wedge, and bits of green chili. I also got some red chili powder which definitely made things spicy. The broth is nice and light. Nice lunch for a rainy Sat.

The other dish was the homemade roti canai with another light curry broth with bits of chicken. Haven't had this for a long time. You get two big pieces of the bread and they're cooked right in front of you. It's doughy with that crispy outside. The attached photo is post-broth spillage, so you actually get a bit more than shown.

It looks like they'll have different offerings each weekend. Great start.
