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.
When enjoying laksa, did you come into occasion in which there was still plenty of soup left and you have to “drink” it off? Phaik Laksa comes out with a clever idea – consume it with yam rice, just like eating with a bowl of Kiam Chai Th’ng (mixed pork soup). Trust me, it works!
