Penang Road Laksa at Lebuh Keng Kwee

Penang's Signature Laksa

This famous assam laksa has been operating in Joo Hooi Coffee Shop for almost five decades; in recent years, they have moved to a new shoplot further down on the same Lebuh Keng Kwee. The broth here is lighter comparing to those other famous ones, but nonetheless it is one of the authentic version of Assam Laksa you can find in Penang.

The key element to a good bowl of spicy sour laksa lies within the fish broth.

This stall here prepares theirs with the mix of sardines and mackerels.

This place is one of the only few in Penang where you can still find chunky fish meat in the laksa broth.

The stall owner will bath the ingredients with the broth a couple more times before filling up with it and serve to your table.

If you came by Lebuh Keng Kwee to queue for the famous chendul, it's hard to miss another crowd that is waiting around this laksa stall.
