Wordless Wednesday: The Famous Air Itam Asam Laksa

Warning: This is a not-so-wordless Wordless Wednesday.

Before we savor the famous and delicious Air Itam asam laksa, let's enjoy some fried spring rolls. Yum...

And now, this is the dish everyone is talking about: The famous Air Itam asam laksa. It's spicy, it's flavorful and to a certain extent fishy (but in a good way!). The rice noodles have great texture. It's so good, my sister Cat took two bowls to satisfy her cravings before returning to Kuala Lumpur!

This is the stall located at Jalan Pasar, Penang. On the top right-hand side is the Malaysian flag, bottom-right are large pots of the delicious gravy or soup. The boss is friendly. Our orders came so fast in just a few minutes despite the ever-present crowd and they arrived piping hot too!

I present you the mighty congested and always-bustling Air Itam street.
More Penang pictures are coming up every Wednesday, so please stay tuned!
