The Institution that is The Laksa Hut



The Laksa Hut at Toowong has been an institution in Brisbane for years! I used to walk past it every day when I was at uni in the, ahem, early 90s when I used to live in Jephson Street. Don't actually remember eating there, but my cousin Tehana mentioned it the other day, so I thought it might be a good halfway place to meet the bestie Bernice for lunch before we had to go and pick up the kids.

I had this salt and pepper tofu and it was divine. Deep fried tofu goodness, pressed with just enough salt and pepper to make it tasty and spicy. The decor  and service was typically Asian, with roast ducks hanging in the windows, mismatched plates, and no nonense waitresses. But who cares. The tofu rocked.
