1. Coca’s Giant Laksa
The Giant Laksa, offered by the Coca Sea Food Restaurant located at Selayang, has been opened more than 11 years. It is not surprising that you can find a really long queue in front of this restaurant because each and every bowl is single-handedly assembled by the owner – Jason. The Curry Laksa here is indeed gigantic with curry noodles that are topped with more than 10 different ingredients, including char siew, roasted pork, curry chicken, blood cockle, pork ball, fish ball, fried bean curd, long bean, bean sprout, fried pork lard and so on.We recommend adding chili paste to the curry mee if it isn’t punchy enough. This is a good tip, especially for those who prefer their curries spicy.

Minced pork, pork liver, and pork slices are generously topped with your choice of koay teow, mee hoon, yellow noodles or a mix of these.
