(Melbourne) Laksa King


I’ve tried laksa several times in Melbourne but one of the best I’ve ever had has got to be from Laksa King. The restaurant is located in Flemington, so the environment is quiet and a little far from the city. Even though it’s less convenient to get to, the restaurant is opened everyday and the food is definitely worth it. Service wasn’t the best and the restaurant only accepts cash, but you can go to the Newmarket Plaza close by where there are several ATMs to withdraw cash from.

To get to Laksa King, you can take Tram 57 (goes along Elizabeth Street in the city) and alight at the Newmarket Plaza tram stop (takes around 30mins from the city but also depends on traffic), or board the Craigieburn Line train (from the city towards Craigieburn) and alight at Newmarket Station. Both tram stop and train station are within short walking distance from the restaurant. Happy eating!

(Melbourne) PappaRich QV

PappaRich QV

PappaRich is a Malaysian restaurant located in QV (which is in the heart of the city) and is one of those places that I return to when I’m out of ideas as to where to eat, or when I just long for some comfort food. The restaurant is especially crowded during dinner time, and there will be a queue outside of PappaRich even though there are relatively plenty of seats in the restaurant already. From time to time, I would just come here and order a take-away when I’m too lazy or tired to cook, which is really convenient. The restaurant also opens everyday and operates until as late as 11pm or 12.30am, so customers don’t have to worry too much about closing hours. Even though I’ve been to PappaRich several times, there are just so many items on the menu that I don’t even have the chance to try them all!
