Seapark Market Assam Laksa

Photobucket

Something Malaysian today, and it is a post on my ABSOLUTE favourite laksa stall in Klang Valley! Anyone tried their laksa before? I know the place needs a bit of cleaning up and it stinks but hey, the laksa here is to die for. I´ve been eating my laksa here for the past 15-20 years and it had been super consistent la wei. And if you can speak Hokkien like me (the Penang ones, not the Klang ones), perhaps, perhaps, you will be rewarded with more on your bowl too.

Damn good stuff!

The broth had the right consistency of sourness, sweetness, saltiness, fishiness and aroma from the fresh herbs. Yum!

Only downside ... inflation had upped the price of this bowl (keh liao size) from around RM4.50 to RM6.00 a bowl! Goodness!

  1. RM6.00 for a bowl of laksa??? Wow, it must have been ages since we went to KL to have laksa .... but luckily laksa in penang is very still cheaper... phew... RM2.50 can get good laksa with lots of "he kor" (prawn paste)

    Assam laksa is the best.... and by looking at the photo, it got be delicious too

  5. Wow, RM6 for a bowl of assam laksa - that's the most expensive I've heard of from a market stall.

    As for German food, have you tried Koenigsberger Klopse (meat balls in caper gravy) and Berlin potato soup (flavoured with majoram)?
    (My other half is German but we live in Switzerland at the mo'.)
