Ah Lipp Famous Penang Prawn Noodles – Lip-Smacking Prawn Broth! https://t.co/wS6dPI4Pm9
You know you’re having authentic Assam Penang Laksa when you scoop up penang noodles that are white and plump. The recipe for the Assam Penang Laksa ($3.50) is also passed down from Ah Lipp’s mother, who still resides in Penang. Every mouthful of Assam Penang Laksa carries a myriad of flavours! Ah Lipp uses sardine instead of mackerel, since its flavour is more subtle and better received by Singaporeans. A flowery yet tangy sensation accompanies the consistently thick broth, with chunks of sardine flesh that adds a textural contrast to every bite. What I like about the dish is how each strand of thickly-cut noodle absorbs the broth excellently. Go ahead and add more prawn paste if you like – self-service!
