Best Asam Laksa in KL

Written by Updated ago

Asam Laksa is no doubt a dish every Malaysian should know of or have eaten before. Ranked at number 26 of the World's 50 Most Delicious Foods by CNN in 2011, this noodle dish is a national pride due to its explosive combination of tangy, spicy, and savoury flavours. The use of tamarind and chilies is no doubt the signature feature to this dish, while fish flakes, onions, and even pineapples are added to create a more robust taste. Many have claimed that asam laksa is made best in the northern region of Penang, but most have been debunked, as you can find similar or better ones right here in the capital. So look no further as we present to you this list of the best recommended asam laksa in Kuala Lumpur.

    Little Penang Café has been around for a very long time now and that’s no surprise as they continue to ladle out the famous original Penang-style asam laksa. For the peeps in KL, this is one of the closest you get to the island’s staple dish. It is served with a rather fiery broth that brilliantly combines the zesty tamarind and sweet mackerel flavours. Their big portions of fish will have you munching non-stop.


    Portions are rather generous.
