I have tried various types of Laksa in Asia and I found this is the best. The Asam Laksa made here have a lot of chopped fish, vegetables, red onions, pineapple etc. The soup is hot and sour and taste perfect. Noodles are bouncy too. Besides, the owner is very friendly.

Situated opposite Khoo Kongsi, the cafe was easy to find and offered only one main dish- Assam Laksa (RM 4.50 Small/ RM6 Large). The interior was comfortable and cosy, with an interesting wall painting which was great for photo opportunities. Their signature dish was was tangy and came in a hearty portion (we shared a large bowl), with the broth on the spicier side (as compared to Joo Hooi Cafe's version). Ingredients were added generously to the bowl of springy rice noodles- the liberal amount of mackerel was very tasty. Recommended as a pitstop to start any heritage trail in Penang:)

Went there yesterday, after they were closed on Wednesday, and were not disappointed by the previous race reviews. The Laksa truly is amazing and the hosts are very friendly and courteous.
