London Vietnamese - any serve La Sa Tom?

  • 3

I have a penchant for Coconut based soup dishes of the Laksa/La Sa Tom school and after exhausting several London options in my quest for a decent Laksa (Oriental Canteen = watery, tiny portion; Tuk Tuk = too much curry powder; Kiasu = expensive and restaurant smells of sewers; Hare&Tortoise = awful reformed chicken pieces), was wondering whether anyone has spotted and sampled a good La Sa Tom dish at any of London's Vietnamese Eateries?

If I'm missing a trick on the Laksa front please tell me!

  1. I quite liked Kiasu but we didnt have Laksa! There is a laksa place on Rupert Court that does a few good, cheap variations but I dont know the name of the restaurant - its blue and is the only one on the (tiny) street off wardour in chinatown that does laksa.
    There are about 10 Vietnamese restaurants on Kinglsand Road - one of them must surely do that dish. Viet Grill has a good soup selection - they also do some nice coconut based curries. Song Que does a lot of soup but i dont think any of them are coconut based. Id maybe go on a reccie down there and check out the menus at all of them (they're really near each other) until you find what you're looking for!
