The Spice Exists on Only One Planet in the Universe … Phew, lucky we don’t live in that Universe. Dune quotes aside, spice is life for me. And, Laksa fulfils that need you sometimes get for a really big spicy soup. Laksa originated in Penang, the broth’s main ingredients are the pod like fruit tamarind and coconut.
We were wandering around Coventry Village Markets and came across D’Big Mama, a small Malaysian Café. It was fairly crowded and the food on tables around us looked pretty good.
Xena went with a Nasi Lemak and Crumbed Chicken. While for me it was the Laksa. A bit concerned trying Laksa from a new place but the food did look good. The dishes came out quite quickly and we tucked in.
Xena’s Nasi Lemak looked pretty authentic with the Ikan Bilis, Cucumber Slices, Coconut Rice and Spicy Sambal. The crumbed Chicken looked really great. The dish received a double thumbs up.
My Laksa smelt wonderful and the broth looked rich and spicy. I could see chicken, prawns, fish cake, tofu, bean sprouts and noodles. Turns out there were thick noodles and thin ones. A nice touch. The broth was great, really flavoursome and the ingredients were quality.
For $11.80 each this was a top lunch deal. We keep being surprised by Coventry Village Markets. It’s nice to have places like this near by.
