Laksa in San Francisco?

  • 3

Had this wonderful dish in Honolulu's Chinatown, would like to know if there's a place in the City.

  1. Lime Tree SF has a version. It's not bad, though I'd prefer a tangier version. Get the roti paratha if you go.

    Oh, and I should mention that it's technically a special, though it's been available pretty much every time I've gone.

    1. Singapore-Malaysian makes a pretty delicate version. I haven't tried Penang Garden's.

      1. What kind? Is it anything like "true-to-regional-form" or a generic nondescript kind?

        A couple of threads that might be of interest:

        An analogy might be for you to ask where you can find "BBQ" or fried breaded pounded pork/veal. Questions about the myriad varieties would come pouring out, including cross-national and cross-continental styles. ;-)
