Sambal Shiok is a casual Malaysian spot serving dishes like fried chicken, salads with peanuts, and rice dishes. But, the real star of the show is the laksa - a noodle soup, with a flavour slap to the face. Yes, some of the food is spicy enough to act as a chemical peel to the tongue. And yes, it can get a little crowded. But, for hefty portions and a drink for £20 a head, Shambol Shiok can quickly become a weeknight dinner addiction.
