Must try: Salt and Pepper Squid, Mee Goreng
Laut sits smack in the center of the Union Square/ Flatiron food Mecca and still manages to hold it’s own.
This popular pan-Asian food spot offers a menu that has a hodgepodge of South East Asian eats. I would stick to the Malaysian offerings, which is what it is primarily known for.
Laut is a Michelin rated spot and it sure does have a few high points on it menu.
The dishes that stood out for me were the “Salt and Pepper Squid “ where I enjoyed every salted, crunchy bite I tried. I also thought their Mee Goreng was well executed though I did need to add some spice to fire up the dish.
The Roti Canai wasn’t the best I’ve tried. I thought the curry part was very good but the roti was a bit too limp for me.
The Laksa we tried was way too weak and definitely needed some TLC.
I think Laut works for where it is as a good option for someone looking for a meal that packs some punch.
Here is some of what we ate:
