Ito’s Malaysian is actually run by the To’s – the laksa legends who were behind the original To’s in North Sydney. After retiring for a while, they came back and I’m pretty damn happy about it!
The shop is located near Hyde Park in a small food court below the Starbucks. There are a couple of other restaurants down under street level, but with Ito’s there I haven’t really noticed who or what!
The laksa here is spicy (could use a bit more chilli) and packed with flavour. Proper flavour and I think more ‘fresh’ herb flavour than Malay Chinese. The soup is on the thin side, but has some real grit to it… My only complaint is that the servings are a bit smaller than average!
Right now, I think this is one of the best laksas in Sydney.
If you haven’t tried their laksa yet, go there. Now.
