Laksa Beras? or translate it into Rice Laksa? Doesnt sound right . .:D Anyway, as my understanding is that Laksa Beras is made of rice flour in a certain mold and comes out with this silky smooth laksa noodle. Every chef have their own secret recepi to make it better when the noodle boil in the hot water it doesnt break.

So my friend decided to bring me to one of her favourite malay laksa stall over the past weekend that its called Laksa Beras. They have been a regular customer since when she was a kid. This hidden  stall started off with family business and as it gains its popularity around the area, many stalls had open up as most of the stalls along the road or around the area are related to them as in either relatives or cousins. I think there would be handfull more than 5-8 stalls along the road.

To reach here, along the road heading off from Bukit Mertajam, Penang to this road, spot for a Police station on your right and head straight then next is to spot on this few buildings that I have taken with blue roof top which is very obvious that is hard to be miss.

The stall is located next to the blue roof top building . . . I would say the stall is pretty hidden and you can drive pass by without realizing it as right infront it would be a small curving road.

A business operated from their parents and now taking over by their kids is one of the popular stalls among the neighborhood in the area.

What is the difference between Laksa Beras and Penang Asam Laksa as the ingredient cook in it is similiar but taste came out is quite different.

Penang Asam Laksa you can taste sourness and especially there are people who love to put alot of shrimp paste (heh koh) in it, spicy at the end and turns out to be many people’s Favourite.

Laksa Beras or I called it Malay Laksa is another version of laksa I love to eat especially during Pasar Ramadan month. The soup base is a bit clear, sour bitter at the end, and the fish they had it slice or mince it and cook.

Price is pretty cheap as SPecial for RM 3 and Normal for RM1.80. Its hard to find a portion like that in that kind of pricing.

As mention by my friend, she help me order Special which is their signature.

One thing I agree with my friend is the texture of the Laksa Beras noodle is super smooth and hardly come across this kind of texture and according to her it is made fresh by the family itself. In the special it comes with cucur udang and dip for a while and eat it is pretty good.

Soup base is a bit clear or mild in taste as this is what the family recepi is, a bit sour bitter at the end, and the soup can just drink a lot. I did not finish my noodle as this is the 3rd stop for the morning itself. So its pretty much and one thing I did is I finish the soup. which is something different.

This place if you ask me to go again, I will be a bit lost and they do not have the exact location as they told me to watch out for landmark only as insert in my post. Happy hunting to this Laksa Beras Place as I would rate it nice malay Laksa. It is advise to go early as at times the finish out early.

Its one of the road heading off from Bukit Mertajam to lead here.

It had been so long that since I last step into this shop as it was not until recently I pay a visit again. No doubt that they do have their signature roast chicken which is a must try item when you are in the shop. Kenny Rogers

As for this round, I head onto their latest promotion that caught my attention with Chicken and Pasta Meal promotion. Looks huge in size that makes me think, will I be able to finish this dish?

Usually with limited edition menu, there must have limited edition drinks also. I grab myself with Minty Green Tea Mocktail (RM7.50) as I always love green tea. Taste is quite refreshing and with strong hint of mint flavour that might have overpower the taste of green tea. Love the gassy taste of it.

Then when my friend ordered Minty Passion Mocktail (RM7.50) I find that this had taste better compare to the other one.

It has been long long time since I last went to Petaling Street for food and walk around the area. I think it was 3 years ago since I last visited the place.

Petaling Street or Chee Cheong Kai is know as Chinatown located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is infamous for pirated clothes and accessories along with bootleg DVDs and CDs. Petaling Street however does not exclusively offer pirated products. Haggling is a common sight here and the place is usually crowded with locals as well as tourists.

The area has dozens of restaurants and food stalls, serving local favourites such as Hokkien mee, ikan bakar (barbecued fish), asam laksa and curry noodles. Traders here are mainly Chinese but there are also Indian, Malay, and Bangladeshi traders. (source Wikipedia)

If you wish to stay around the area, there are many budget hotel available too.

One of the food stalls that used to be very famous was this ‘Ikan Bakar’ that is located in front bank. The last time I dine here was about 6 years ago that it was so famous that we have to order first as usually need to wait for around 1 hour and we stroll around the place to see any nice thing to hunt. .

Now the order came less than 5 minutes and the place was not as pack as before.

I ordered the ‘Sting Ray, Lala, Squid and Prawns’ RM16 for small. The taste was not as good compare to last time, as it was very spicy (at least I need 4 glass of water to cool it off) and this round, the bottom was burn, and the whole spicy dish is filled a bit with that flavour and the sambal taste is not as nice as it used to be.

chinatown (9)

When I always come to this area, one of the drink that I will not miss and it is always pack with people is this ‘Air Mata Kucing’ RM1.80 per cup. It is sweet, refreshing and filled with longan at the base of it. A recommended drink if you do go there.
