Malay Chinese Takeaway
Shop 1, 50-58 Hunter St
You know you’ve found an authentic asian kitchen when in the middle of a cosmopolitan Western city, you see at least 3/4 of the customers are asian and most of them are eating laksa.
Having heard good reports about this place and how busy it is, I turn up around 2:30pm to avoid the lunch time crowd. It is still relatively full but I get a table.
I go with a seafood laksa. At the pick up counter there are 3 large pots for their own chilli sauce, their own xo sauce and something with shallots in it. I add a mix of chilli and xo sauce to my dish. Sweating starts within a minute of starting. This is good. This is my second visit.
