2 of 50 “Tastiest” Soups in NYC – Taste Good’s Singapore Kari Laksa

MY TASTEFUL OPINION:  Go treat your taste buds NOW!

Despite being a total retard trying to get to the restaurant and taking a massive detour in the bitter, bitter, BITTER cold, we arrived, nearly frozen, to an extremely pleasant, hot meal.  Six of us purposely trekked out to Elmhurst, Queens to try the Singapore Kari Laksa, and it didn’t disappoint.  It wasn’t nearly as spicy as I thought it was going to be, which is great for me (but maybe not preferred by others).  I didn’t need that Pepcid afterall!

The noodles in the Laksa were of the thick, clear kind (WOOHOO!) cooked to perfection – al dente-ish.  The milky coconut goodness combined with whatever spices they infused into the soup made my heart melt.  The meat and seafood ingredients were also delicious, but, really, as long as the broth and noodles were great, I was a happy camper.

Had some other dishes that I can’t remember the names of, but they all made my taste buds sing with delight.  I’m glad that I could thaw out enough to chew and taste everything to its fullest.

The price tag for such a memorable meal?  If memory serves me right, we only paid about $21 per couple, including tip.  So that would be about $10-11 per person.  That’s right folks, it’s worth the trek out to Queens for Taste Good because it tastes good!!  And it’s cheap!

Over $10 – These soups should have a gold leaf in them.

$6 to $10 – You’re not shellin’ out the gold, but also not gettin’ super lucky.

Under $6 – It’s your lucky day!
