The Banana Tree Laksa (Grilled Chicken and Prawns) @bananatreeuk
– Rice noodles topped with a house special spiced coconut broth with aubergine, tofu & bean sprouts. Garnished with coriander & crispy shallots.
This was the dish of the review, and a Laksa to which we can fully understand why the restaurant put its name to.
This generous bowl of coconut broth, which was mellow and soothing in taste, contained perfectly cooked pieces of chicken and prawns, al dente noodles, bean sprouts that provided that necessary crunch, and soft pieces of tofu.
Yet, while two Lions enjoyed The Banana Tree Laksa for what it was, the other preferred enhancing his with an extra kick of heat and spice via the addition of a few spoonfuls of the accompanying samba chilli sauce, smartly presented in a classic pickling jar.
