We bet Asam Laksa will surely be in the top 5 when we need pick the most famous Penang street foods 😋. Even CNN Travel picked it as World's 50 Best Foods in 2011!
This fish-based noodle soup comes with shredded fish 🐟 (usually sardine or mackerel) and vegetables such as cucumber, pineapple 🍍, onions, ginger flower, red chilies 🌶️ and laksa leaves. The dish would be topped with a tablespoon of prawn paste when served as you see in our photo. The mixture of sweet, sour and spicy taste creates a wonderful bowl of heavenly delight. 😍
