Being in the mood for some Laksa on a quiet Tuesday night, it was decided that a short trip out of the city, and up to Flemington would be perfect. The original plan was to go to the famous Laksa King (which I hadn't visited since its reopening) but after seeing the packed interior and the long queue at the door, it was decided that the short walk two doors up to Chef Lagenda was the more attractive option.
Rumor has it the team running the joint are the same ones from the old Laksa King, but who cares either way as long as delicious food is served. Of course, the first thing to be decided was which laksa should be ordered. Chicken, vegetarian and seafood were all on offer, as well as the combination of shrimp, fish cake and chicken that we eventually decided on.
One cannot be satisfied by laksa alone, so we ordered a couple of other dishes. There was nothing particularly good or bad about the Steamed Chinese Broccoli with oyster sauce, because, let's be honest, the dish is pretty hard to mess up.

My only other problem with the place was that the table was too high/I am too short, which made eating a little uncomfortable yet the service was friendly and fast. Overall, I was happy with the experience as the laksa, the most important aspect of this restaurant, was faultless.
