Give it to me sweet, sour and spicy baby!

As the complexity of sweet, sour and spicy flavours burst in my mouth and contrast with the texture of fat and chewy noodles, my immediate thoughts are: "this is nothing like any other laksa I have tasted".  So, I decided to do some research. It turns out that each country in Asia has its own style of laksa, and the one I ate last night, at Penang Kitchen in Katong, was, of course, Penang assam laksa. Assam laksa has a tamarind soup base, unlike the coconut milk soup base I had become so accustomed to in the countless bowls of laksa lemak I had devoured over the years. Penang Kitchen is rated by discerning foodies as one of the best Penang laksa hawker restaurants in Singapore, and it certainly lived up to its reputation last night: a full bowl of udon style noodles in a tamarind, fish and chilli gravy, with generous slices of pineapple, onions and mint leaves, topped with a prawn paste - all for only S$8.50+. Give it to me sweet, sour and spicy baby!  Yum!!

We normally frequent this restaurant from time to time on the weekends as parking is easy. Our latest experience was particularly bad. We requested for char kway teow without bean sprouts. The elderly waitress insisted on adding bean sprouts to our char kway teow, eventually she obliged. what came out from the kitchen was terrible. It was bland, the portion was tiny it felt like a retaliation for the special request. The order of prawn noodles also seemed to have a rancid hard boiled egg. Maybe the cook has changed recently and the standard has dropped. But sad to say this will probably the last time we visit this place.
