Penang Air Itam Laksa

Hello lovelies…

Last Monday (11th March, 2019), I flew to Penang due to work. To be honest… I was excited when I was given this task because I love traveling to Penang State. I bet most of the Malaysian food lovers enjoy food hunting in Penang.

Whenever I travel to Penang, the food I would definitely looking forward is asam laksa, of course!

Maybe some of you girls already know that I’m a big fan of asam laksa cause I been bragging a lot about it in some of my posts. Besides, CNN Travel ranked it at no.7th out of the 50 most delicious foods in the world.

In Penang, there is a very well-known asam laksa stall located at Air Itam, nearby Kek Lok Si Temple.

This stall has been established since 1955 and still going strong. Today, he hired many staffs (mainly his family members) to help him assembling the asam laksa condiments, i.e cucumber, onions, chillies, pineapple, lettuce, mint, torch ginger and shrimp paste and serve it to the customers.

Each bowl of asam laksa costs is only MYR 5 (USD 1.22)!

That’s very economical!

One tips for you girls…if you’re planning to try this out, you gotta come as early as you can because they always running out of stocks in a blink of eyes! and it’s better to come in with friends/relatives/family…because someone need to reserve a seat/table for you while you are ordering your asam laksa at the counter.

The seats are like hot cakes. As soon as you leave your table, someone else would take your seat within a seconds!

Besides…you might need a help to capture your memory of sipping the asam laksa broth, aite?

So girls…if you are in Penang, do check this place out! It’s definitely worth it!

  1. Spent ten years working in Singapore which was my base for travelling the Asia Pacific. The very best food is to be found from the street stalls though any Asian food is still on my menu today back in Australia in retirement. 🙂 Keep enjoying that good food lar.
