Penang Assam Laksa

Penang Assam Laksa

They might share a name, noodle contents, and shrimp paste, but Assam and Nyonya Laksa couldn’t be more different.

A similar base of shrimp paste, fish, and noodles then quickly departs into the world of sour tamarind broth cut with the crisp freshness of raw onions and cucumbers.

This heaping bowl of noodles and fish is at once daringly spicy, incredibly refreshing, and tantalizingly fragrant. Be warned: the noodles may be more slippery than your appetite demands.
