Thai Laksa @ Lim Hong Yong 林记 Stall in Taman Serene Food Centre (off Taman Pelangi), Johor Bahru



Lim Hong Yong 林记 is one of the many little stalls in the popular Taman Serene food centre off Taman Pelangi opposite the famous San Lou Seafood Restaurant.

Before I go on about  Lim Hong Yong 林记, I must mention that this humble looking food centre in Taman Serene is jammed packed with gems of hawker stalls. I will be making a few more trips to explore them all :)


Back to Lim Hong Yong 林记 which offers a wide range of popular fare like wanton noodles, Penang prawn noodles, fried kway teow and more.

Don't underestimate the tiny Lim Hong Yong 林记 stall, it sells the usual hawker fare but all with a little twist that makes all the difference.


Manning the frantic, steamy kitchen is Ah Kit 亚杰 who is the adopted son of the stall owner Ah Lim 亚林.


My friend Kumes strongly recommended Lim Hong Yong's Thai laksa.





Lim Hong Yong 林记's Thai laksa bee hoon comes loaded with ingredients submerged in spicy laksa gravy.


There are many laksa stalls in Johor and what sets Lim Hong Yong 林记's laksa apart is the slight tanginess in their laksa gravy. The laksa is rich with spices but not too lemak as it is not overloaded with santan (coconut milk). The spicy hot gravy has a tangy taste from squeezed calamansi juice, giving it its unique twist.


Come and try Lim Hong Yong 林记's unique Thai laksa. Maybe, you will like it as much as we did.

  6. I usually go for the ice kacang and rojak from the corner stall, but have never tried the laksa. Will do so soon, as the pictures of the laksa look so good!

  7. Bro JK, today's lunch for me is this Thai Laksa..good recommendation. Gravy is more slanted towards Thai spices. It's giving Seng Kee (No 10) a run for the money...the dude and the assistant can speak good mandarin when I spoke to them in English..the thick noodles are damn shiok with the gravy. Drank the entire bowl..

    Seng Kee was eyeing me when I walk past his stall to No 8...hahaha..another time, dude!

    2. Actually there aren't any Thai spices as such. He just adds calamansi lime juice to his curry mee gravy, but boy does it make a big difference!

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
