Laksa in Western Canada

slingshotz | Apr 28, 2008 10:41 AM

Has anyone been able to find a laksa anywhere in Western Canada that is close to the laksa you can get in Sydney, Australia? I lived in Australia for a little bit and got addicted to the seafood laksa in the little asian food courts in Sydney (the ones with all the photos that you can order by number). I have never been to Singapore or Malaysia so I have no idea if the stuff in Australia was "westernized" but all I can say is that it was damn good. Spicy, sweet, coconutty with fresh seafood, rice noodles at the bottom and a tasty topping *drool*.

I'm in Calgary and there's only one Malay place I know of (Tropika) and I've tried their laksa and it was disappointing. The closest I've had here was sadly out of a laksa packet mix from T&T supermarket that I prepared myself.
