Located in Kelantan Road, Sungei Road Laksa is a humble stall in a typical coffeeshop, but manned by a family of 3 when I was there.
Just seeing the uncle filling each bowl of laksa with the gorgeous broth, fueled by a charcoal burner was worth the trip to go there by itself.
His pugilistic movements would not seem out of place in an Ang Lee movie, and the family members working like clockwork to fill each bowl with ingredients was like swiss precision.

The laksa itself was served like Katong Laksa style, with only a spoon and no chopsticks.
What was visually appealing was the explosion of colors brimming from side to side. The redness of the cockles matched beautifully with the green of the parsley and the yellowish broth.
The broth itself was very light, not lemak like Katong Laksa, but it was because of this lightness that I especially enjoyed. A tinge of refreshing sweetness, infused with the coconutty flavors.
The cockles were not only huge, but very abundantly generous. The textures were just amazing, cooked to perfection. The noodles and bean sprouts added the much needed texture and color as well.
It was so delicious that I literally had 2 and a half bowls at one go. And let me say, I rarely consume so much food at one go. Every bit of laksa flavor had me intoxicated and just clamoring for more.
