The great laksa debate will rage eternal but since Mr To left the building at To's in North Sydney, the mantle has been handed to Malay Chinese Takeaway. Not too rich, not too oily, the laksa here is slick and packed with flavour.
Lunchtime queues are common here, so it’s worth arriving slightly outside peak times. Despite the name, much of the business is eat-in at laminate tables and plastic chairs and the service is pretty swift. The king prawn and chicken laksa lemak features tender slices of breast meat, a few fat, firm-flesh prawns and rice vermicelli in a slightly sweet soup. Chilli spicing is in the medium range but can be boosted with the excellent sambal from the ceramic jar on the front counter.
