However, since The Star put up at least three articles on "laksa" this month in its Sunday, Aug 5 issue - "Assam laksa anytime" by Faridah Begum, "SMS senders' pick for best Assam Laksa" (none of Balik Pulau's make the top list though) and "The best has got to be in Penang" by Helen Ong, so here are the pictures and the links to savor yourself with the hot bowl:-
- Time always for laksa at Tourism Penang
- Laksa Balik Pulau Coffee Shop (LBPCS) at Asia Explorer
- Assam Laksa Balik Pulau at KLmakan Blogspot
- Peter Tan's Quick Trip to Balik Pulau
- Balik Pulau Durian & Laksa at Gastronomics Diary
A couple years back, my good friend, Ash, who's crazy about laksa has been querying on the good spots to get them good bowls but I can't seem to give a suggestion except pointing out pasar malams "perhaps around Bayan Baru" etc, but now I know.... Unfortunately though, this friend of mine who made a short stay in Penang already moved back to KL by now.
Well, despite me not having laksas anymore, I do frequent Laksa Janggus with my family, and I normally get Mee Th'ng instead plus fried cucur pisang. Stopped by the place again yesterday afternoon, but just got ABC special and picked up some 20-cent satays from entrepreneurial villagers at the roadside near Kg Perlis on the way back -- quite cheap huh, but you'll get what you pay for - tiny pieces of chicken meat!
I wonder if the big guys of Pizza Hut, McDonald's or Secret Recipe will ever arrive in Balik Pulau... till then...
