Penang Assam Laksa

When there is Penang Hokkien Mee , there must be Penang Assam Laksa right? If you are asking me, of course. Though, I can really nail the fact to, if Assam Laksa was kick started in Penang or other states in Malaysia. Of course, without a doubt, we have the Malay style to Assam Laksa as well, which by far can be trended close to Penang Assam Laksa. Yet, when we speak about Assam Laksa on the whole, Penang is always remembered. Maybe we can include Malacca too? What is Assam Laksa for those of you who don't know? Assam Laksa is a noodle dish ( Hokkien Mee ). The soupy or sour spicy fish based broth ( Lamb Pho ) in noodles and garnished by mint leaves, onion, cucumber, ginger torch bud, and eaten alongside otak-otak/shrimp paste.
