For those who has been following my twitter, you would have noticed that I had a laksa marathon last week. Hmm… it’d be in 6 hours we’ve eaten 3 types of laksa. That’d be like a bowl of laksa in an interval of 2 hours. Oh… it definitely make me walks 3 feets away when I see any laksa stall.
Our first stop was Farlim Shell Station Laksa. I’ve read about this in a few blogs but didn’t manage to give it a try until last week. My bf recalled that 10 years ago, he had this laksa before. He was shocked that the small stall now had grown into a coffee shop.
At first we planned to order only a bowl of laksa to share among us, but when we entered the coffee shop the laksa soup aroma rushed into our nostril.
Ended up, one bowl for each of us. 2 big slices of fish served on top of the laksa which is rarely to be found in any laksa stall nowadays. The soup base is more clear which has less bits and small pieces of fish compare to Penang Hill Laksa.
As usual, I added some bird chili into my laksa as I prefer it to be more spicy.
The pile of fishes attracted my attention.
The lady stall owner runs the stall with the help of 2 Indonesian maids. Just imagine the business she has in a day.
Besides laksa, there’s a bah kua (dried meat) bread stall in the same coffee shop. Being a freak of dried meat, I can’t miss this lor.. Bread with dried meat and floss. Although it’s slightly pricey, RM 1.60 for it but the generous portion of meat floss somehow compensate it.
Other than meat floss and dried meat, there’s many other choices too such as luncheon meat, sausage, taiwan sausage and etc. As you can see, the other piece is with luncheon meat. This is merely bread with luncheon meat plus some sweet gravy which is different from the one I had at Sri Nibong Cafe. Both have their speciality though.
Popiah to be dipped into laksa soup. I learned to eat this way when I started to read food blogs. It’s kinda special and new to me
There are some fish crackers sold at the coffee shop too. There are packed in a long plastic bag and they are hanging at the laksa stall. What a sight!
Bread Stall: 10am – 7pm
Laksa Stall: 11am – 7pm
Click here for map. This coffee shop is just located behind Farlim KFC.
** Guess which would be my next stop for another round of laksa…
