On 10/Oct, a group of floggers did a crazy thing… visited three restaurants in one day (this reminded me of an old video clip in which the crazy guys visited 23 locations in 24 hours for 25 food in Penang… let’s do it one day, floggers). Getting back to business, one of the locations we visited that day was the famous laksa in Kelang Lama, Kulim. Let’s see how’s the laksa tasted like compared to the one in Penang.
Seriously, finding the location is kind of difficult as it is inside a residential area. Basically just turn right after seeing SJK (C) Kelang Lama signboard as shown above. Specifically, good luck.
The owner was trying the best to make the place hygiene. This can be seen from the way they put their chopsticks.
When seeing this container full of crackers on the table, “suah ku” (mountain turtle) like me thought they were free. Who know it is RM0.20 each. Luckily didn’t put them into mouth like eating muruku.
When was my last time taking laksa? Yes, just last Saturday that I had my laksa-steamed argus snakehead fish (乌鱼 or “Goh Hu”) in my hometown, Sg. Petani. Compared to Penang laksa which was at sweeter side (I still remember the one I took in a restaurant… sweet like somebody accidentally poured one bag of sugar inside), this Kulim’s laksa (RM2.40) is at sourish side and is similar to the one in Sg. Petani.
If you ask me which one better – Penang, Kulim, or SP… I guess is still depend on personal taste bud.
Other than special crackers provided, the stall also served Ice Kacang (RM1.70). Personally I didn’t try it that day (reserve stomach for other purposes) but it looked yummy. The price was reasonable as well.
It was heard that the quality of the laksa there is not as good as before. However, the place still draw some crowd even though it was hidden inside resident housing area.
