I’ve always been a laksa lover and I had been craving for it recenlty. When a friend suggested we do lunch at Secret Recipe, I immediately said yes to finally satiate my craving.
Yes, this Malaysian-grown franchise has already entered the Kingdom of Cambodia earlier this year and opened not one but two branches in the capital alone. One is situated in the busy Monivong Boulevard where my friend took me. Inside was so cozy and pleasantly cool, a welcome refuge from the searing heat outside.
As a lover of anything noodles, my order, of course, had to be curry mee and it came in a large bowl with an okay serving of sambal on the side. Curry mee is just basically spicy curry noodles but the sauce — the sauce was creamy and oh-so-tasty. The curry spices weren’t overpowering either so it’s all good. As you can see in the picture above, it’s not all sauce – you can see the ingredients – fish cake, tofu, and clams – weren’t swimming in the sauce.
For sure I’ll be coming back to try out the other dishes in their menu.
