Takeshi Noodle Bar @ Hotel Soloha - Jelebu Dry Laksa Pop-Up Restaurant With Modern Twist On Local Dishes


Chef Renee Tang Eyrn, better known for her home-based business Jelebu Dry Laksa has collaborated with Tipsy Collective for a limited time. During this period, she will be running her pop-up restaurant at Takeshi Noodle Bar along Keong Siak Road. Not only is she bringing her dry laksa to the menu, customers can also look forward to her modern twist on the local dishes.

Scallop & Otah Pillow 3.5/5

We commenced the dinner with the Scallop & Otah Pillow ($22 for 3pc) resting on a crispy nori cracker. It is further paired with otah mousse and top with avruga caviar for an exciting play of flavours and textures.

Taupok Poppers 4.2/5

The Taupok Poppers ($12 for 6pc) is one of my favourite items on the menu. The crispy youtiao is stuffed with king mackerel and tossed in a delicious sweet and savoury rojak sauce, topped with ginger flower and peanuts. These popping delights are very addictive.

Szechuan on a Stick 4.8/5

A must-have has to be the Szechuan on a Stick ($14 for 2 skewers). The grilled pepper pork satay is exceptionally tender. The soul has to be Nam Jim Jaew (Thai chilli sauce) that elevated the local pork satay to a whole new level of enjoyment.

Grilled Tiger Prawn Dry Laksa $22

Not forgetting Chef Renee's signature Jelebu dry laska. At Takeshi Noodle bar, there are 3 options - Grilled Tiger Prawn Dry Laksa ($22), Butter-Poached Half Lobster Dry Laksa ($32) and Butter-Poached Whole Lobster Dry Laksa ($46). The plate of slurping goodness is boosted with a beautiful aroma from the rempah. I also noticed the noodle is thinner than what Chef Renee used for her home-based business. In addition, it is also saucier than her home-based business. I prefer this version at Takeshi Noodle Bar.

Kaya Goreng 4.5/5

Wrapping up my dinner is the Kaya Goreng ($14 for 3pc). The kaya coconut mousse is served in a charcoal ice cream cone. It is a very creative dessert paired with coconut ice cream, chocolate soil and salted peanuts. 

Jelebu Dry Laksa's tasting menu will be available on Mon, Wed & Sat. Ala-carte menu items will be available daily except Tuesday when the restaurant will be closed. The 8 Course Set menu is priced at $88 per pax and $118 per pax for the 9-Course Set menu

Note: This is an invited tasting.
