So I was in Ikano Power Center – Mutiara Damansara, to pay the bills (it’s the nearest functional post office to me I think) and I didn’t have much time.
Instead of my normals haunts (A&W, Authentic Hiroshima Okonomi Yaki & Gyoza or Manhattan Fish Market) I headed to Uncle Lim’s, which I always see, and which is always busy.
They only serve 4 main dishes, which if I recall correctly are Uncle Lim’s Laksa, Asam Laksa, Nasi Lemak and Chicken Porridge (Gai Juk) and a few other things like Roti Bakar and Otak Otak.
I opted for Uncle Lim’s Laksa…I don’t know the difference between this and the Asam Laksa.
But I have to say their presentation is excellent, so much better than their culinary skills.
I had a Soyabean-Cincau (Michael Jackson), in a rather small glass..
And mixed up my noodles.
Uncle Lim’s Laksa appears to made with spaghetti, rather than regular noodles, which is kind of interesting…there wasn’t much else inside, a few cockles I think, no big juicy prawns..And it cost $7.90 and the drink $2.50.
This is a place that’s pretty much self service and only serves 4 dishes, surely that keeps the price down?
It is a big portion, but well I didn’t finish it because it wasn’t very good..it was salty, a little overbearing and didn’t have much worth eating inside except the spaghetti.
Perhaps I’ll go back and try the Asam Laksa and the Porridge, but I doubt it..I can get both at other places for $2-3, not $8.
Uncle Lim’s Homegrown Crap.
Yeah I didn’t enjoy it.
