At one time Taste Good's kari laksa (now $7.25), with rice noodles, bean sprouts, tofu skins, chicken, shrimp, and half an out-of-place hardboiled egg, rivaled the laksas I've slurped down in Singapore and Penang; the coconut-chili gravy was particularly lip-smacking. The bowlful shown here, however, is a laksa of years past; since a change of ownership, the gravy has fallen back a step or two.
From a subsequent group dinner, the one dish I would recommend without hesitation features sizzling bean curd ($10.95) surrounding a savory pool of minced-pork sauce. The lightly fried bean curd is crispy outside, almost creamy inside.
