Island Cafe, Tangs Orchard

I was first introduced to this place (310 & 320 Orchard Road, Level 4 TANGS Orchard, tel : +65 6311 3424) which serves, what many would describe as atas local food, years ago by a friend and since then I've only been here a few times. With said friend. In all that few times, I've only ever ordered the crayfish laksa. Recommendations of said friend. Until today.

Honestly, the crayfish laksa was pretty heart clogging good. Rich coconut infusion into the moderately spicy broth. Tau pok, slices of fish cake, quail eggs. And of course, crayfish that wasn't obscenely tiny and also not overcooked. One could taste the sweetness from the flesh still.

Their Penang char kuey teow was pretty decently done plate of stir fried noodles. Well fried, not too soggy, laced with fresh tasting ingredients, probably not like how it is done in Penang but a rather good local rendition. Probably a little mild in the department of flavors.
