Singapore-style laksa spicy noodle soup starts at Y500 at this fast-food shop, with your choice of short or long noodles and four levels of hotness. The flavor is rich, shrimpy and quite spicy, even at the regular hotness setting.
Extra toppings, priced at Y100 each, include cheese, tomato and hard-boiled eggs, and there's also a set meal option which includes chicken with rice and a soft drink to go with your noodles. The setting is quite informal, with just four seats in the main part of the shop and a few benches in the semi-enclosed front section, which is furnished with space heaters and blankets.
