During my multiple decade span of attacking anything in a bowl, I have no doubt had my fair share of utter disasters, and to say this was one of the most (un)memorable, would not be an overstatement.

Covid has thrown up a new set of problems for the already struggling food & beverage scene, one of those being the inability to house people tightly packed in restaurants or outdoor seating areas for the time being. Take-away has been an increasingly practical way for food outlets to still cover their bottom line, and provide their regulars with the tastes they have come to crave.

Before flying to KL I had been doing my usual hugely productive activity of Youtube surfing, ending up watching an episode of (an unknown to me) Mark Wiens and his trip to eat this fabled smoked duck curry. I made a mental note that when back in KL I would heed his advice and strangle my will to allow a day to be spent on the conquest of webbed feet gorging.

What lengths would I go to for a bowl of ramen? Ok, I haven't killed anyone yet, or stripped nude in a public place, or wrestled a panda bear. Short of that, I have changed travel plans, or taken lengthy motorbike rides to unknown suburbs all with the dim hope that MAYBE this bowl will be "the one".

To be honest, the proud engravings of NO MSG on a menu, does little to impress me. I am not one of those paranoid androids who shudders at the thought of ingesting Ajinomoto, riddled with the anxieties bestowed on them by a million sceptics. If it tastes good, i'll eat it, I don't care what's in it. Bottom line
Having made my position sufficiently clear, I'll get back to what's important: Laksa.
