Ah right on ya Laksa is a Malaysian/Singaporean curry type spice/herb paste. Thought I recognized the look of the sauce I do the same type of herbs/spices with coconut milk to make my Thai and Singaporean style bisques and curries. I like the flavors much more than the thicker, deeper Indian types of curries. Thank you for the heads up of the mussels at Lobsterman. Gonna pick some up this week the. They sound delicious!
