onde onde, Waterfront Desa Park City

Back in July this year I went to onde onde in Waterfront Desa Park City to have their popular assam laksa. I bought a deal from I forgot which group buying site that give a special price for their assam laksa. Since DPC is just 5 minutes drive away from my place, it's quite obvious that I don't have to think twice about buying the deal.

onde onde is a little cozy self service restaurant. At the counter, I could see there are a few varieties of Nyoya kuih, which looks very appetizing. The recipe used here is based on the recipe from the owner, Paul Khong's mother Sally Teh whom hails from Mallacca. You can read more about their story here.

I also ordered their Nyoya otak-otak as a side, honestly a bowl of assam laksa is not enough for me. I liked the fact that their otak-otak is steamed instead of grilled because I think steaming retains the fish taste inside the otak-otak. Soft, creamy and full of fish and santan (coconut milk) flavour. A side that is worth a try if you come here.

The true gem came when I saw their assam laksa. It's so rich with flavour and ingredients. Their soup is thick that each scoop is filled with fish flakes, unlike some of the diluted soup found elsewhere. The balance of sourness and savouriness is just nice. A dash of prawn paste sauce in the laksa just made my day. I can say that this might be the one of best laksa found outside Penang or even wins some of the laksa in Penang. Highly recommended by me to try their assam laksa if every you drop by.

What I like about Waterfront Desa Park City is that after a nice warm meal in onde onde, I can go to have icy cold New Zealand Natural premium ice-cream a few shops away. ;)

Asam laksa is the best! I don't really like the santan based laksa. :)

Most Desirable: yupe, it's tasty

HB: I'm okay with any version of the laksa as long as it's yummy. But the santan version should be eaten moderately because loads of bad cholesterol.
