Written by Updated ago

Have you ever had a moment where you suddenly crave for something in the midst of your busy schedule? That craving is so intense that you can only satisfy it IF and only IF you have a taste of it. What is this all about? Laksa. Yes, the ever famous legendary laksa from Penang. Citizens from all over the country drive miles and miles to Penang to have a bowl of this spicy noodles with a strong fishy aroma (which may somehow smell bad to certain people). Nevertheless, Penang has the best to offer to those laksa fans and even those who do not really enjoy it. It will change your life!

    Taman Emas Coffee Shop

    Ai laksa bo?” (would you like a bowl of laksa?), asks a friendly looking lady with her hair tied into a bun. You can never say no to her sweet smile. Apparently, her laksa tastes as sweet too. Accompanied with a mixture of fish, chilli, pineapples, prawn paste and onions, this place serves their customers with a bowl of classic looking laksa. Its flavour is quite palpable with a cheeky little taste of spiciness and raw vegetables – perfect for people who love a more balanced flavour.

    Zarie Famous Laksa House

    The locals at Batu Feringgi also have their own laksa spot to boast about, Zarie Laksa House. As per the name of the restaurant, they do take their laksa seriously. First of all, it’s aesthetically served in a claypot with lid. Upon removing the lid, a nice gush of aroma greets your nostrils at once, while the colours are pretty engaging too. Most importantly, they score in terms of flavours with a nice fishy-flavoured broth, silky noodles, prawns, squids and a haystack of chopped pineapples, julienned cucumber and onions on top. Do ask for additional chopped chillies for a dose of heat.
