Assam Laksa is a no stranger to Penangites as it is probably the most popular hawker food other than Char Koay Teow. The sour and spicy soup noodle mainly made of fish and tamarind (a.k.a assam in Malay) is also our favorite food. Fried Laksa, however, is an eye-opener for us. Today we bring you to Yan Yam Cafe 炎茶餐室 (GPS: 5.41289,100.32257) for this creative dish.
Tired of commercialized chicken rice with arrogant attitude, we decided to try modern cafe in Ipoh instead. JJ Cafe (GPS: 4.58354,101.09360) is an accidental discovery and it surprised us with its coffee, Swiss roll and more important, the sinful Signature “Siew Yuk” Pasta. Since then, we visited the outlet twice despite 160 km away from Penang.

“If I get promoted, I will treat you lobster.” In Penang, do not simply make promise like this as there is really a place for lobster in George Town. We recently burned a hole in our pocket after visiting The Book Sandwich Cafe (GPS: 5.41397,100.33783) for their signature Succulent Lobster Sandwich. Is the hole worth burning? Let’s find out.
