Food Trip Friday 023: Malaysian laksa

I missed last week’s Food Trip Friday and I’m coming back with a vengeance! *lol* Yes, check out my FTF entry:

… an authentic laksa from Sophia’s Kitchen somewhere near the Sorya Mall along the back alleys. Served in a large bowl, the laksa is packed with lots of fried tofu (my favorite!), mushroom, boiled egg, clams, and a dollop of chilli all swimming deliciously in creamy and spicy coconut milk. I was a little disappointed because they used rice noodles instead of the usual yellow egg noodles but it was nevertheless heavenly. Tasty and very filling. I mentioned “authentic” because  the owner of this canteen-style kitchen is from Penang, Malaysia where laksa is one of the popular local fares. What’s more, it comes with a free dessert and bottomless tea for only $3! What a bargain!

Happy first anniversary, Food Trip Friday! Many, many thanks to Mommy Willa for creating this wonderful meme. My eyes feasted on yummylicious dishes featured every week from different countries and most of all, I get to borrow other food trippers’ recipes and try it at home. Thanks to everyone! Now, on to our second year…
