Laksa might be the dish on its signboard, but it’s his take on the classic Mee Siam that stall owner Daniel Soo takes the most pride in. The 60-year old concocts a special blend of juices in place of the usual tamarind juice, giving the dish a fragrant and fruity flavor that tantalizes customers’ taste buds. Years of perfecting the recipe have garnered him rave reviews from the Michelin Guide and other major publications, attracting guests from faraway corners who visit Hong Lim Market just for a taste of his famed dishes.
