A Michelin Guide Singapore 2016 Bib Gourmand award recipient, offering the famed the sizzling-hot Claypot Laksa. Starting at $4, Zhen Shan Mei’s laksa consists of thick white bee hoon (rice vermicelli noodle), small prawns, tau pok (bean curd puffs), shredded chicken, and slices of fish cake in a rich and creamy, curry-like laksa gravy, topped with a dash of laksa leaves and optional sambal chilli, if you wish to turn up the heat. There’s also optional blood cockles that you are recommended to include, as they always go well with spiced coconut laksa gravy due to it’s contrasting, yet complementing texture and flavour.

The science of serving laksa in a claypot is first, to keep the dish warm throughout your meal, and second, to use the alkali properties of the claypot to neutralize the acidic flavours of the laksa, resulting in a sweet, spicy and savoury flavour which tastes better as you eat.
