Recommendation by Lemi

Family-owned Pasar Air Itam Laksa has been stewing up the city’s favorite dish for over 60 years! Two generations later, their sought-after Penang Asam Laksa recipe is only getting better. Sip on tart stock flavored by tamarind juice, chili, and lemongrass. Heap your spoon with shredded mackerel, fresh vegetables, and chewy noodles. Sour, spicy, and savory—this Asam Laksa is an addictive blend of flavors that will have you calling for your second bowl in a heartbeat!
