Chef Lagenda is the rival to Laksa King, literally two doors down.
The word on the street is that one of the chefs broke away and started their own restaurant, perhaps deciding to taunt Laksa King with the notion that they could run an equally excellent Malaysian restaurant in the same neighbourhood; and that they did. (They also have a second restaurant in Deer Park)
I have to say I actually prefer their non laksa dishes and range of dishes to Laksa King’s choices. They have a much wider and more interesting selection. This time around we had the Nonya Seafood Combination (19.80) and the salt and pepper calamari (19.20). Loved the okra in the seafood dish, the seafood (prawns, fish, squid & scallops) was all fresh and succulent, and the lemongrass and tamarind sauce was great. The salt and pepper calamari was perfectly cooked. All in all a great meal. Highly recommend Chef Lagenda.
