Prima Tanjung Assam Laksa Stall Review

Prima Tanjung is quiet a famous place to get some good food and fruit to fill up your stomach. I like Prima Tanjung as it is near to where I stay. This is always my first destination when I want to get something to eat. Today, I am going to share with you the Assam Laksa stall that located in front of Prima Tanjung.  Here is how the Assam Laksa stall looks like.

This mobile laksa stall is located in front of prima tanjung shop lot. It is attached beside to the soya bean stall. The Customer is will enjoy the soya bean drink and the assam laksa there. What so special about this stall?

Well, If you look at the above picture, you can choose to dine at the table behind the mobile stall or stand along the road to eat. For me, I prefer to stand beside the stall and enjoy the food. Beside the dining environment,  It just tasted better.

What does the stall sell?

It is simple! This stall sells assam laksa.

The assam laksa is kept in the metal jug and it is kept hot using charcoal as burning fuel as shown below.

Beside the assam laksa, you can add on some of it famous fried stuff to it. On the other side, you can choose not to have the noodle but just the add on and the assam laksa soup alone.  For me, I choose the second solution where I consume the fried stuff with the assam Laksa soup. Here is the famous fried stuff that he sells.

Does the food taste good?

I have ordered  one fried spring roll, one fried bean curd and one prawn cracker. Upon ordered, the owner will start to prepare the food.

According to the Indian owner, all the food ingredient is getting from his boss. His role is just to sell the food and earn from the delta of the raw material cost.  All of items is placed in the bowl and swamped with assam laksa soup as shown below.

The fried stuff is being soaked in the assam laksa soup and it does improve the taste. The assam laksa soup is sour and hot. The fried stuff is crunchy and it had absorbed the taste from the soup. You can enjoy the crispiness from the fried stuff while enjoy the sour and hot taste of the assam laksa. It really tastes good! One bowl is just not enough!

Will I come again?

Yes, definitely!
