The Original Katong Laksa - Janggut Laksa

When many of the Laksa Stalls in Singapore writes that they are the Original Katong Laksa and that makes consumers like me confused about their originality. 

The Original Katong Laksa was founded by Mr Ng Juat Swee who is also known as Janggut (when translated from Malay means beard and Mr Ng has hair growing out from his mole below his chi

They started their first stall in the late 50s at East Coast Road, which was well known as Katong Laksa but due to rental hike, they have been relocating in Katong and their stall in Roxy Square was settled down in 2000 and another branch in Queensway Shopping Center in 2005. Till today, they have 5 branches.

We were early and decided to bang our buck on the medium-size bowl of Laksa after anxiously waiting for the stall's business to start for the day. I was filled with joy after receiving my order as I have been longing to taste this Janggut Laksa for some time. My bowl was filled with a generous amount of eggs, slices of fish cakes, blood cockles and prawns.

Like most of the traditional laksa stalls, we enjoy having these bowls of yummy dishes consumed using just a spoon. The thick bee hoon is cut into smaller lengths and every spoonful is loaded with yummy goodness.

The laksa broth has a faint taste of coconut milk, striking a good balance of sweetness with a little bit of spice. Overall, it still makes a good bowl of laksa topped with chopped laksa leaves and a scoop of chilli.


For we are the first two customers, there is no queuing needed for us. If you ask if this is the best Laksa I had, honestly I will say my heart still goes with my all-time favourite Sungei Road Laksa for their taste is more distinct and "heavier". Janggut Laksa will remain my 2nd favourite in list.
