Among the many great street food in Malaysia that you should never miss is the Penang Laksa. The strong aroma of the herbs, the sourness of the soup from the fragrance of the assam and the quality of our Penang prawn paste makes this dish a must-have if you visit Penang. If eating authentic street foods of Malaysia such as this Penang dish without having to travel across the causeway sound good to you, then the Malaysian Food Street at Resorts World Sentosa is the place to be.
Auntie Mooi from Penang, famed for her Penang Laksa stall will be in Singapore as the guest chef at Malaysian Food Street in Resorts World Sentosa from 27 August to 9 September 2012. At $5 a bowl, you get to indulge in authentic and mouth-watering Penang Laksa without having to bring your passport and hop on a plane to Penang. Back in Penang, Auntie Mooi sells up to 300 bowls of Penang Laksa everyday at her stall. Her secret is in the thick and spicy broth of this fiery hot noodle dish. She uses traditional recipe with spices like chillies, galangal, lemongrass, fruity ginger flower, tamarind (assam), and assam keping (dried tamarind skins). Three different types of fish meat are also used to cook the broth, for the added flavour. Generously topped with finely sliced vegetables, mint leaves, shredded red onions, cut chillies and served with a spoonful of prawn paste, this Penang Laksa is a dish that you would not want to miss.
Besides this fiery noodles treat from Auntie Mooi, you can savour other popular and authentic street food such as KL Hokkien Mee, Claypot Chicken Rice and satay from the newly opened Straits of Satay at the Malaysian Food Street.
