Today I shall introduce one of my favourite Laksas in Singapore, Janggut Laksa.
Janggut Laksa was established from as early as the 1960s as Marine Parade
The daughter of the founder still runs the stall at Queensway Shopping Center, which is my preferred outlet to visit because of the whole O.G vibe and friendly mum-like service. Eating at the long tables give one a sense of communal spirit.

If you’ve heard of Katong Laksa, you should know that this style of laksa is eaten exclusively with a spoon, because the noodles have been cut up.
