Kim Laksa in Balik Pulau

It also goes really well with spring rolls!

Kim Laksa located at Nan Guang Kopitiam (in Balik Pulau) offers both Penang Asam Laksa and Siam Laksa. The broth here has more fish flakes than what we will normally get. It also tasted less spicy and more sourish.

Other than the iconic Penang Asam Laksa, this stall in Balik Pulau also offers Siam Laksa.

Siam Laksa is a similar version of Asam Laksa; with the difference in its richer, creamier broth, enhanced by the additions of coconut milk and fried spices.

The soup here is thick and tangy.

The broth has more fish flakes than what we normally get.

This is probably why Kim Laksa is favoured by many from far and near.

It also tasted more sour and less spicy, though you can ask for extra chilis if you prefer it spicier.

Dipping fried spring rolls into the laksa broth is another unique way of how Penangites enjoys their laksa.
