Air Itam Asam Laksa at Jalan Pasar, Ayer Itam - @garnisypnp

Your trip to Penang won't be considered complete without trying the assam laksa by the road opposite Ayer Itam market. This famous Penang Asam Laksa stall located just opposite the Ayer Itam market, is a well-known gem of Penang. It has been around for a whopping six decades and it's a place frequent by tourists and the locals.

Be prepared for the limited parking spaces and hot weather as this place is usually packed with both the local penangites and tourists.

Once you've found available seat, you can then place your orders.

Don't worry about the wait time as they usually serve fast soon as you found your seatings.

You will likely dig through the generous amount of vege and mashed mackerel fish on your first dip into the bowl.

Mix it well with the shrimp paste before you start slurping away the springy rice noodles.
