Ekachai – Liverpool Street

Ekachai is not easy to spot. Luckily, I was with a friend who had visited multiple times before and knew exactly where we had to go in order to have some South East Asian food. The restaurant was not too busy when we arrived and fortunately, we did not have to wait long to get seated. The service was very quick (not sure if that was because of the impending influx of hungry restaurant-goers that were about to enter within the next few hours). The restaurant itself is not decorated in a way that would transport you to the Orient. But the rows of seating maximised the number of people they could host, even if it did feel like you were rubbing shoulders with complete strangers.

The restaurant was busy at the time we went which was at around 7pm on a weekday. This meant that I felt like I was shouting across the table to my friend to find out what was going on in her life since the last time I saw her. But that can be forgiven because my food was delicious. I ordered the Seafood Curry Laksa (£9.50). Considering the amount of fresh seafood that was in my dish, it was great value for money. The creamy coconut broth was beautifully flavoured and the portion size was great. I did however struggle to finish it though…
