Sam's Singapore Laksa House Review ~ Crow's Nest


We try Hainan Chicken Rice, Har Mee and Assam Lime Soup at Sam's Singapore Laksa House, Crow's Nest.


Crow's Nest Plaza is a small and tired old shopping centre that has a few hole-in-the wall retaurants worth checking out. Miss Chicken and I came to revisit an old favourite Japanese joint but we get distracted by the street foodie offerings of Sam's Singapore Laksa House.



Hainan Chicken Rice $10. I enjoyed it though it lacked the 'magic' of a great chicken rice. The chook, soup and the rice were plain though well cooked.



Prawn Noodle Soup. $12. The broth is not uber-prawnie as Miss Chicken prefers but still quite tasty.



The soup came with a king prawn that was cut in half then fried in light batter, a simple trick but so effective, that prawn was delicious.



Assam Vegetable Lime Soup with Shredded Chicken. $7.80. We have never tried this dish before, it's an instant new favourite. A spicy tamarind broth similar to a Penang Laksa, add a squeeze of the supplied fresh lime and the soup jumps to life. I was a little unsure at first sip but drooling by the end of the bowl.

  1. You should try the Himalayan Char Grill next to the Teppanyaki restaurant. I think it's quite good. The restaurants in Crows Nest Plaza are quite friendly and relatively cheap compared to other restaurants in the area.
