suchan new location

Thai Laksa MYR15 nett - 2 prawns with lots of shredded fish meat in the broth - tastes quite like assam laksa

Flat white coffee - MYR9 nett 

A slice of Moist Chocolate Cake - MYR12.90 nett - supposed to be moist but is kind of dry.

Nice mirror

Counter with menu board

Red brick counter

suchan - used to be located in PJ. Just moved to 20, Jalan Perisa 1, Happy Garden, Off Kuchai Lama, 58200 KL in March this year (2015). Not sure whether it is still operated by the same owner or not. For many years I have wanted to visit it but due to its location in PJ, I did not. So now that it is near my neighbourhood, I dropped by for a bite and found that the food is a bit too pricey for this location.

    1. I don't see this laksa in Thai restaurant so I wonder how authentic is it.

  3. The laksa must be tasty. Once a while indulge in such luxury is fine. Not everyday.

  4. Thai laksa? Looks like Penang laksa to me. Broth looks nice and thick. RM15 is ok - I see prawns in it! Value for money when they have a lot of these not-cheap ingredients.

  7. Is it supposed to be famous when it was in PJ? I have never heard of suchan to be honest...

    And what the heck is Thai laksa? I don't think there is any Thai dish that is called laksa @.@

    1. Yes it is famous for its cakes. Have to check the origins of the laksa word.

  8. I always ate at the old Suchan near University Hospital and had no idea they had shifted to this new location. Yes the menu is pricey but they have regular crowds and cake orders which are ceiling priced. There are lots of customers who would pay any price for the best and this Suchan has plenty of regulars like those Datins who adorned her walls of photos. I didn;t know its owner Sue Chan is my sister's good friend until I saw her walking into my sister's wedding dinner in Penang years ago!
    Are you aware that Alexis gets their supply from Suchan?

    1. I am not aware of Alexis getting cakes from suchan. You must go to the new place then for old times sake.

  9. I can see why your chocolate cake was not moist....it looks like it was the only cake sitting in the cake fridge! Based on the comment above, if Alexis gets their cakes from Suchan, their cakes should be alright.

    1. The choc cake was chocolaty enough but too dry.

  10. Oh, moved already! I have been meaning to try their cakes because Suchan is famous for her cakes. Too bad the chocolate cake was dry. I find that most chocolate cakes I have had so far from restaurants tend to be dry.

  16. I think this place is famous for their cakes, right.

    Nowadays cake is not cheap. One slice can easily price at RM10 above.

    1. You are right on both counts. They are famous for their cakes and cakes are expensive nowadays.

  17. I wonder how long this outlet can sustain with bad economy these days...It has been years since I last enjoyed a piece of cake and hot chocolate at such fancy place.
