Penang Asam Laksa is a popular food in Penang. It is more of an appetiser because it is 'hot' (caused by chili) and sour (caused by assam). However, people in Penang can take it as a 'meal' itself during lunch or dinner.

The noodle used in laksa is not used in any other food. This noodle which is made from rice into long strips like mee and is eaten only with laksa soup. The soup is water boiler using fish. Then the fish is de-boned and put back into the soup together with other many blended spices. The ingredients added to the noodles are pineapple, thinly sliced and chopped cucumber, peppermint leaves and 'bunga kantan'. 'Belacan' or prawn paste is added to get the taste.

Note : Like all stalls, you can always tell the seller that you do not want some ingredients / sauce / paste.

Laksa is served with those ingredients and the soup poured onto the noodle. Then prawn paste (already mixed with some plain water) is added on top. One bowl is normally RM3.00 to RM3.50 (year 2013 price).
