Asam Laksa , Air Itam
Asam Laksa in Air Itam plays the first role in Penang island . I won't miss it when everytime I visit Penang .
One of the best things living in Malaysia is the foods readily available to all, at anytime or everywhere . I love Malaysian food too much .
The strong aroma of the fish chunk , the sourness of the soup and the quality of the prawn paste definitely attracted us all the time .
The uncle will scoop the boiling hot soup and bath the noodle few times to make the noodle cooked and make sure the gravy stays on the noodle to make sure the thick rice noodle get covered evenly with the delicious thick broth .
The thick broth is made from mackerel and served with thick shrimp paste with aromatic mint leaves , onions and chilies . The broth is deliciously sour and not too spicy . I liked the spongy texture of the thick rice noodles which was melt in my mouth , and the thick mackerel broth was well complemented .
