Here’s a blow by blow comparison between Paprika in Belconnen and (old) Sammy’s Kitchen Laksa in Civic. For those who know the drill, a SK laksa for comparison purposes is a straight 10/10/10.
- Taste (Flavour) = 9
- Size = 10
- Ingredients = 9
- Decor/Cutlery = 8
- Waiting Staff = 10
- Cost = 10
Paprika is just up the road from Magnet Mart in Belconnen. The interesting thing about this Laksa is that it is a sour laksa – once you try it you’ll know what I mean.
I found the ingredients, style and pretty much everything else comparable, but just not quite a Sammys Kitchen Laksa, which is not saying that it was bad, just not as good. If I’m up in Belconnen Area needing a Laksa fix, I’ll probably duck across the road to Can Tho, but I’d probably return to Paprika to try something else from the menu as they are going in a different direction with their dishes than other conventional Canberra Laksa venues.
Before the inevitable comparisons to other venues start – here’s some background reading…
Unfortunately the search button didn’t show up the Asian Noodle House in Dickson, but rest assured its in the database somewhere…
