Assam Laksa, Jln Kurau, Chai Leng Park, Prai, Butterworth

This Assam Laksa owner operates from one of the terrace house in Jalan Kurau in Chai Leng Park, Prai, Butterworth. One will easily miss this laksa stall if you are not familiar with the place. The stall opens around lunch time until late afternoon tea time. I was in this area one afternoon and decided to check out the laksa. The laksa gravy is full of flavour and the turmeric smell is strong. No problem for me, the more pungent the soup the better it is, plus with the addition of wild ginger flower garnish, the taste is heaven. I love laksa with thick soup without adding any har ko (shrimp paste) as the har ko normally spoils the natural taste and also the laksa will become too sweet. The spicyness and sour taste is just right. Overall the laksa from this stall suits my taste. As the location of this eatery is in a house, it is not so pack with people like a normal restaurant or coffee shops with many stalls, so I can enjoy the laksa soup slowly and peacefully till the last drop! After finishing a bowl of laksa, I ‘sapu habis’(eat) all the ice kacang, yummy! The price per bowl is RM2.50. They owner also sells Bak Chang (Meat dumplings), Tong Sui, Ais Kacang, Siam Laksa, Yam Cakes and Oyster Porridge. A bowl of yummy assam laksa.............................The terrace house converted in to an eatery! Address: 92, Jalan Kurau, Chai Leng Park, Prai 13700, Butterworth.
