Tonight I had craving for Penang Assam Laksa, so we drove all the way to Air Itam to our favourite laksa stall to tapao few packets back home. Although most Sarawakians prefer Sarawak Laksa, but I still prefer the Penang Assam Laksa, which is my all time favourite. My favourite Penang Assam Laksa stall is the hawker stall located opposite the Air Itam Market near the Kek Lok Si temple. This popular stall is always full house (locals as well as tourists) in the day time. The laksa here is delish & sold at reasonable price (RM 2.20 per bowl).
I love the thick fish paste soup (with generous servings of fish flakes - not visible here cos I stir it earlier on & it sink at the bottom of the bowl) with good swirl of He Kor (prawn paste). Mouth watering dish when served pipping hot. I always eat all the laksa and drink the soup till the very last drop. I still have one packet left in the fridge, for breakfast tomorrow.
