Melaka is famous for coconut milk based Nyonya Laksa but you cannot miss out on the best Penang Asam Laksa in Melaka because it is made by true Penagees at Uncle Low Cafe.
Asam Laksa is served in a fish based broth with thick tapioca mixed noodle. It is somewhat similar to tom yam for the asam (sour) and spicy taste but rather sweet and delicate with fish chunks/flakes, garnished with fresh mint, thinly sliced cucumber and shallot, and crispy bean curd skin.
Some Asam Laksa can be fishy and tangy but Uncle Low’s Asam Laksa has the perfect balance of all flavors from the ingredients that you can easily finish up the whole bowl without a single drop of soup remaining.
Besides the famous Assam Laksa, they also serve Prawn Mee, Mee Soup, and Jawa Mee, all in authentic Penang style.
