Siam Asam Laksa Recipe

  • By on December 24, 2009 | No Comments

    There are several type of Laksa can be found in Malaysia like Asam Laksa and Curry Laksa. So do you know what is the recipe of making one good Laksa? I am not the fans of sour based type of food but today I found another attractive kind which is Siam Laksa in Kamunting, Taiping.

    If you want to know the location of this stall, you miss it this time because I forgot to tag the location of the home stall in Google Maps 🙁

    Anyway, the Siam Laksa was home cooked by Indian family under one house roof 😉

    Siam Laksa Recipe


    Asam Laksa is prepared in sour fish-based soup while Siam Laksa is also the same except the less sour soup 😉

    Although I never had Nyonya Laksa before, I feel the soup taste was quite similar to Nyonya kind of taste.

    Siam Laksa was also referred as Laksa Lemak, which sounds oily to me but not in actual taste.

    The Siam Laksa recipe was combination of coconut milk, lime leaves, lemon grass and the taste indulge me to order the second bowl 😀

    The Siam Laksa will be even more alive in taste if you add in crunchy bean sprout from Ipoh.

    Siam Laksa Paste


    Previously I had Asam Laksa in Penang, Kek Lok Si Temple and the taste was great with high dense of shrimp paste 😀

    I remember I drove back to Kek Lok Si again the next day and was disappointed to find that the stall was not open 🙁

    There’s no shrimp paste found in this Siam Laksa although Taiping food was similar taste with Penang food.

    So I had my food revenge today by ordering two bowl of Siam Laksa to fill in my stomach for tomorrow’s breakfast.

    Get and whack one bowl of Laksa today 😀
