Amid the busy tourist stalls of Petaling Street, you'll discover these two stalls which have been trading for more than 30 years in front of the Madras Lane market selling Assam Laksa, Curry Laksa and Sotong Kangkung. Tables and chairs are laid at the entrance of the wet market and the side walkway of the shop next to the market. Only available from the evening onwards, this is a popular stop over for people who work around the area before they head home.
What's good is their Sotong Kangkung (RM4) - blanched brown calamari and cooked spinach drenched in a black sauce with hints of sugar, prawn paste and sprinkled with ground peanuts. Not a very attractive picture but the taste is good stuff.
Thumbs up for the Assam Laksa (RM3.50 for small and RM3.80 for a big portion) here as it has the right balance of sweet, sour and spicyness I look for. They're also quite generous with the fish. Definitely a place I'll come back again and again. The soup has the kick for me hence I end up slurping it up. You can add as much prawn paste you like from the container on the table to balance out the flavours till you're happy.
