10 Palate-Stirring Laksa You Must Try In KL
1. Limapulo: Baba Can Cook
Best known for the spicy and hot Nyonya laksa served in the house, every mouthful of the soup is scrumptious enough to send you to the gates of heaven with its bold and strong flavour. Squeezing the lime juice into the soup elevates it to a new level of pleasant sourness. Soft noodles to go with the soup makes the overall experience perfect!

🕐 11.30am – 3pm, 5.30pm – 9.45pm (Closed on Sunday)
2. Aunty Christina’s Sarawak Laksa
Flying in all the way from Sarawak, this precious recipe results in a rich and robust bowl of laksa you can’t get anywhere else. Moreover, the soup is well done and it’s generously portioned. Prawns in the laksa are considered fresh and taste good as well, blending nicely together with the soup. Proper Sarawak laksa by a Sarawakian, totally authentic!

With its bright orange colour shining through, the broth smells of strong tamarind flavour which is sweet and savoury, opening our appetite to chow down more of this asam laksa. Their broth is freshly cooked daily and steaming hot soup is poured into the takeaway bowls upon order. Add more of the shrimp paste for extra sweetness!

The curry laksa here is delicious enough to have you craving for it once every week. Most of the patrons here are locals and when asked about the laksa, they’re not lying when they say it’s very good. To add, the soup here is very fragrant with a good portion of ingredients. Served with slippery and soft noodles which are the best!

5. Long Napir Kitchen
Another laksa cooked with Sarawakians’ authentic recipe, it has reached the ultimate balance between savoury and appetizing flavour due to the complementary unique sambal taste. Filled with a good amount of ingredients and slurpy noodles, a great meal made indeed.

6. Little Penang Kafe
For the people residing in KL, this is the closest and most yummy Penang Island’s authentic asam laksa you can get your hands on, bringing the taste of the lovely island to the big city. The bowl comes in a fiery broth that exudes tamarind and sweet mackerel flavours. Big chunks of fish meat thrown in are delightful to boot.

7. Madam Kwan’s Suria KLCC
Known as the best restaurant in the whole of Malaysia serving Malaysian cuisines in the most comforting way possible. Their asam laksa is often overshadowed by the signature nasi lemak and rendang, but in no way is it any less delicious. Try it the next time you drop by!

8. D’Cengkih Authentic Johorean Cuisine
Johorean-style laksa that’s hard to come by, served in a plate rather than a bowl. The noodles go super well with the spicy gravy and the bean sprout adds crunchiness to the laksa. D’Cengkih is a favourite amongst the locals to enjoy and indulge oneself in Malaysian cuisine.

As a bonus to the whole dining experience, pineapples are thrown into the bowl for that additional zestiness that everyone would learn to appreciate. Pineapples in pizza are a big no-no but in laksa, it’s a different story. In a nutshell, the laksa holds a tangy flavour!
