CBD Noodles in Wintergarden has been one of the best Sydney Laksas for a while, but seems to get overlooked buy a lot of other people. I started going there originally as it was the closest place to Malay-Chinese Takeaway (whenever the lines were too long), but have since grown to love it. They make the broth spicy and include both noodles if you ask them.
I always thought it deserved more recognition, but seeing as there is a pretty big line there every time I go, maybe people are just keeping it a secret to themselves.
The line can get pretty long at lunch time, but since it is in the Wintergarden foodcourt it is usually easier to get a seat. They also have half of their staff serving laksa customers and half of them working on dry noodles and food – so the line does move quite quickly…
For anyone in a rush to get back or eat at the office, their takeaway containers and servings are much better than the ironically named Malay-Chinese Takeaway which uses terrible, small plastic tubs (one of their few flaws).
So for anyone who hasn’t been to CBD Noodles for a laksa, give it a try! They make it hot and it is close to anyone around Circular Quay or near Australia Square. There are a bunch of other pretty good food choices in Wintergarden now, but hey, why eat anything besides laksa?!
