Our laksa marathon continues after our first stop at Farlim Shell Laksa. Where we went next? Up up the hill we went… we are going to Balik Pulau for laksa. When we arrived, I was excited as I saw there are 3 types of laksa available. There are Assam Laksa, Siam Laksa and Mix Laksa.
Too bad that there are only 2 of us. Hence can’t try out all 3 types after the laksa, bak kua bread and popiah we had at our first stop. So we ordered the Assam Laksa and Mix Laksa.
Mix Laksa would be assam laksa + siam laksa. Siam laksa soup base is made from coconut milk, lemon grass and kaffir lime leaves. Siam laksa tasted more to milky type. Therefore, mix laksa is the best way to balance up the milky taste of the siam laksa as assam laksa is the sourish type.
Soup base is thick with lots of small pieces of fish. There’s a strong aroma of kaffir lime leaves and lemon grass which you won’t find it in assam laksa. It’s something new to me and it tasted good! Not too milky and not too sour. Just the right amount of taste.
Can’t miss out the traditional assam laksa lor. It doesn’t differ much from the farlim laksa I just had. But this one do not have big pieces of fish.
The one thing that impressed me was the laksa noodle used. It’s kind of differ from the normal laksa noodle we usually had. The texture is slightly coarse but it has a small degree of springy which suits my tastebud. I do not like my noodle to be soft or soggy. Yucks!
The noodle seems slightly thicker too.
