Mission accomplished, we settled for lunch at the nearby 363 Katong Laksa.
The restaurant had adopted a fully computerized ordering system. First, you place your order using the computer. Then, you take along with you a round device which beeps and lights up when your food is ready for self-collection.
Although it was a hot day, we decided to bring the heat to the next level by having their laksa. My laksa cost $4. Despite its plain and simple look, the smell is tempting enough to get you dive right in. The laksa came with prawns, fish cakes, bean sprout, and laksa leaves (yes, I asked for no cockles. I can either choose to please my stomach or my taste bud, in this case my choice was the former one). The laksa tasted fragrant, there were ample laksa leaves, which I love. I strongly recommend you to add some sambal for that extra kick, it wasn't that spicy, at least to me.
