Penang Assam Laksa - JUSCO Mega Mall

hi there viewers.. got back from Mega Mall bout hours ago.. yea .. the Mid Valley Mega Mall, Kuala Lumpur.. well it has been a wonderful 40 mins visit.. weird huh.. was just there to pick up something for my darling gf...

after completing my mission of the evening.. i proceed to Jusco's Home n Living department on the 2nd Floor of the mall.. there you'll find an eatery managed by Jusco themselves.. i supposed this eatery is no longer something new for those that made Megamall their second home..or so,.. hehehe...

here you'll find a variety of local delicacies, such as nasi lemak, curry laksa or curry for short n of course.. our highlight of this section.. Penang Assam Laksa.. well so called...

this particular one served by the Mid Valley Mega Mall's Jusco basically it is rice noodle in spicy and sour fish-flaked soup.. top n garnished with pineapple, onions n cucumber.. but this eatery made it a lil more interesting by sprinkling some chopped chillies.. yummy n spicy...

if u go to Penang the Assam Laksa there will taste a lil different.. less spicy.. less sour n have this sweet taste of prawn paste.. which this place is lacking.. anyway.. still


p.s. ppl like me.. better bring extra tissue...

Tangkak Beef Noodle

hello readers.. let me introduce myself.. i'm yikang aka gary.. thanks to alicia for allowing me to tumpang her food blog..

well for starters.. Tangkak Beef Noodles... supposedly one of the best beef noodles in Johor.. i was at their branch in Kluang, Johor when covering this.. basically it is a soup noodle.. the soup was boiled to a lil saltish perfection with beef, some cow bones (dunno how to use a better word to describe) and cow stomach.. u can choose to go with lai fun, normal yellow chinky noodle, chinky vermicelli or kwey tiao (else also know by its exotic name "flat rice noodle").. try the one with lai fun (some sort of rice noodle as well) u'll never go wrong..

fresh warm noodles will be accompanied by the beef soup/broth n topping it with cube-like chunks of beef cutlets and cow stomach... sprinkled with some "ham choi" (salted pickle vege) and spring onions... just lovely... also u can order additional beef slice and the stomach with the soup.. price is very reasonable..

a must try when u visit Tangkak or now also available in Kluang.. RECOMMENDED..
