In Malaysia, "laksa" refers to non-wheat noodles that may come in a variety of broths or served brothless with condiments instead. This menu is designed to introduce SF to three distinct types of laksa from the North, East Coast and South of Peninsular Malaysia.

Menu detail

Kelantanese Laksa
Kelantan is a state on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. This under-cerebrated laksa is sometimes called "laksam" per local dialect. The handmade noodles are steamed on flat sheets of muslin cloth and then rolled into logs. This version is served in a grey sauce made with fish, coconut cream and fresh herbs. Many Malaysians from other regions are unaware of this dish.
