Laksa Bisu at Air Itam Market Food Court

In fact, many finds the laksa here more consistent than the famous one opposite.

The assam laksa stall located inside the Air Itam Market is known to many as Laksa Bisu. A family-run business started since the 1948; currently managed by a brother-sister duo. The word 'Bisu' means muted, as in the person can't speak nor hear. The stall owner (brother) is muted since birth.

The stall was named bisu so people would understand and use 'hand signs' to place orders.

That doesn't stops him from serving a good bowl of authentic Penang asam laksa that tastes as good as the opposite stall.
