As I did not ask anyone or deliberately search for Malaysian food, I didn't expect to get any of it during my BC trip. Suprisingly, of all places, found this stall (yayy!) at the food court in Aberdeen Centre, Richmond. Aberdeen Centre is located within the Golden Triangle of Richmond which basically consists of 3 major Asian shopping malls; Aberdeen Centre, President Plaza and Yaohan Centre. They have quite a variety of Malaysian/Singaporean food so I'm sure they are form either of these place. Anyways, the Singapore Laksa (craving like since ..forever) attracted me while my mum was so tempted to try the Hainanese Chicken Rice.
Singapore laksa ( or seafood laksa) came in a super huge bowl comprising of rice noodles, yellow noodles (hardly can be found in Canada I think) , lots of bean sprouts, fishballs and tau foo pok ( bean curd). Soup was super good and spicy eventhough it looked so watery and though it did not have 'si-ham' (cockles), they managed to maintain the taste ( MSG or ready made paste or freshly made ? not sure ;P). Still, it was really good but did not manage to finish the whole bowl :(

The chicken rice was really good too (for Canadian standard) and since this can hardly be found over here. So, they were pretty smart to be selling this as apparently, it is the best seller among the Asians over here in Aberdeen Centre. The rice had good consistency, garlic and gingery taste, chilli was really good (according to my mum) and chicken was generous and fresh. So good !
