I love discovering new places to eat hence when I heard about this wonderful assam laksa in Kelana Jaya, I decided to swing over there last night to give it a try. It was a good idea as it meant me using the highway to get home instead of my usual route vide Section 17 which was jammed up with flash floods due to the heavy rain in the evening.
Since it had just stopped raining when I was at the stall, there were no long queues but a steady stream of people ordering their assam laksa to be packed. I eagerly got home (in pretty good time too as there was not much jam since everyone was stuck in town) and heated up the soup base and had it piping hot over the laksa noodles. Very nice and I thought this is by far the nicest assam laksa I have had from the night market. It's also super reasonable as the big portion cost me only RM3.50. I love the fact they did not skimp on the vegetables unlike the other night market stalls. Not sure if they also open shop at the other night markets but if you are in the area, do visit them as their laksa is really good.
When I was wandering at the night market which is tiny, just one row of stalls along Jalan SS4C/5, I spied two satay stalls. One had just started their fire but another had gotten his satay ready hence I decided to supplement my dinner with a selection of beef and chicken satay. Usually the satay you get from the night markets can be pretty forgettable but I was pleasantly surprised when I ate them and they were excellent. They were perfectly cooked and tender. The peanut sauce that accompanied it was not spicy enough though but extremely thick with peanuts. Excellent stuff which I must try again another day to see if the quality of this stall can be maintained.
Jalan SS4C/5 Pasar Malam
The assam laksa van is parked at the end of the road, opposite Ying Siong hardware. Beware that there is another assam laksa van on top of the road called Cheow Yang assam laksa. The satay stall is nearer to the assam laksa stall (not the one near the junction).
