Instead of staying back at Flamingo hotel, I tacked along with my other half to Ayer Hitam. He left me at the junction and went off to see his client. No doubt I've been to Ayer Hitam a couple of times but somehow I kept missing out on this famous asam laksa. This time around, I made sure I stopped by at the stall along the road side. Just another ordinary stall with plastic tables and chairs, shielded away from the sun. Still, sweating is unavoidable.
The stall owner is such a darling, He smiled at everyone and when I was clicking pictures like nobody's business, he smiled again. I ordered a bowl of the laksa while standing nearby to watch how a bowl of asam laksa is assembled - drenched with the broth and topped with garnishing.
From another stall nearby, a bowl of ice kacang was called for to go with the laksa. As I started eating the laksa, I knew why its raved by many out there. The broth especially is an explosion of flavours. Goodness till the last drop. Being a number one fan of asam laksa, I completely polished the spicy-tangy and fragrant fish broth. Amazingly delicious. Truly worth ranking as the best among the rest. .
shaved ice with colorful jelly pieces, variety of sweet potatoes and red beans in the sugary coconut milk was perfect to cool down the heat on my tongue and mouth.
I then left the stall and walked further up the lane for some sightseeing. By the way, there's a branch of this famous laksa at Asia cafe (Subang Jaya) but the stall only comes into action after 3pm.
