Baba Laksa has quite a diverse set of lunch options - ranging from rice places, to laksa, to soup noodles. We choose the Beef Rendang with Rice, and the Singapore Har Mee. The Beef Rendang was presented on a long plate, filled half with white rice and half with beef chucks. Texture of the meat was a little dry for me, and although there was plenty of rendang sauce...there wasn't too many chucks of meat - maybe 7 pieces?!
The Singapore Har Mee was quite good. Noodles in a tangy and light broth, filled with plenty of chicken meat and prawns. I think I counted at least 5 prawns, which is pretty impressive! These days, it seems like you are lucky to get more than 3 :D A small amount of chinese vegetables and bean spouts was included, and the bowl was topped with fried onions and half a boiled egg. For those that want a bit more heat, you can add extra chill to spice it up. Baba serves their laksas and soup noodles in long, oval-shapped bowls. Takes it one step up from the old, chipped, plastic bowls that usually goes together with this type of street food!

Baba Laksa house is a place to grab a casual bite - Quick service, right amount of tables/seating, and decent food. Wasn't a fan of the beef rendang but would go back for the Singapore Har Mee. Although Baba is situated in a hotel lobby, its not a "hotel-type" restaurant...its simple food, nothing fancy.
