Sambal Shiok is a casual Malaysian restaurant serving dishes like fried chicken, gado gado salad, and sambal prawns with rice. But, the real star of the show is their special laksa - featuring king prawns, poached chicken, soft tofu puffs, noodles, and a shrimp-based broth that makes you sweat in excitement. Summer, winter, spring and all the rest - you'll want this whenever. Bear in mind it’s a popular spot and it can get a little crowded. But, for hefty and flavour-packed portions and a drink for around £20 a head, Sambol Shiok will quickly become a weeknight dinner addiction.
