Guys there’s been an EMERGENCY. Stop whatever you guys are doing now and really just listen to me for the next 5 minutes.

I just had THE MOST AMAZING LOBSTER LAKSA EVER UGHHHHHH. I had a friend coming over from Kuala Lumpur over the weekend and I wanted to take her out to dinner. Initially I thought of bringing her over to my new gem of a discovery, Deanna’s Kitchen for the most delicious halal prawn noodles of my life, but they close at 5pm on Saturdays. So I thought, alright maybe this would be the time to finally try the Lakster Deluxe that I’ve been seeing so much on my instagram for the past couple of months!

Lakster Deluxe (S$34.90) – 10/10

The Lakster Deluxe (S$34.90) is the brainchild of the folks from Jenggood Jom Makan, a hip stall at Padi Emas Coffee House at Jurong East Blk 214 (behind Almukminin Mosque) Al Ayza coffeeshop at Jurong West St 52. They are well-known for their original signature dish, the Laksudon, which is like laksa that’s been upgraded with thick, chewy udon noodles. According to my friend this is more like laksa Johor, which is a bit thicker than laksa nyonya (which you get from places like 328 Katong). Well well, I guess I’m more partial to laksa Johor than laksa nyonya!

Jenggood serves up the Lakster Deluxe comprising the Laksudon with a WHOLE lobster, plump mussels, large prawns and calamari, all for just S$34.90! Here’s a closer look:

A whole lobster plus look at the big prawns! Peep the delicious sambal at the left corner unffff.

My friend and I shared one Lakster Deluxe and OMGGGGG the laksa on its own was already SUPER yummy – the gravy was rich and thick with minced fish meat, coating the chewy udon noodles well. I didn’t even need to mix in too much of the sambal because really it was already a robust gravy, and honestly I would definitely order the Laksudon next time I’m jonesing for some good laksa.

Seriously OMG the lobster meat was so succulent and look at all that roe omg?!?!?! DEADDDDDD

The lobster itself was SUPER fresh; the meat was succulent and slightly sweet, and absorbed the laksa gravy well. Same for the juicy mussels and the prawns!! UGHHHHHHHHHHHH. I love seafood so much and they definitely did not skimp on the ingredients both in terms of quantity and quality. Plus they provide you with that nutcracker tool you can use to crack open the lobster claws, as well as a mini bucket to throw away all the shells (lobster/prawn/mussels).

The aftermath – we filled the whole bucket with shells lol

S$4 for the laksudon?!?!? I am THERE bruh.

All in all my friend and I had a truly satisfying dinner at Jenggood, and we were both totally blissed out by the end of it, like tears-of-joy #alhamdulillah vibezzz. I would DEF go back here again especially since I live in the West. Oh also, this place accepts DBS PayLah!!!! How great is that? I didn’t have enough cash on me and scanning the QR code provided by the owner Hans was a breeze. Go try it for yourselves soon!!!
