I was driving yesterday afternoon when I realized I haven’t had breakfast or lunch and I was really early so I decided to stop by this roadside stall.
Now, when I say roadside stall, I mean the REAL kind – the ones that can pack up and leave without a trace…
…with plastic chairs for you to sit on, arranged nicely in clusters under the shade of trees.
I only had RM 4 in my wallet and I ordered their Laksa Utara (RM 3). It tasted pretty good, probably coz I was very hungry. It had all the right stuff inside – boiled egg, fish pieces and shallots. Laksa Utara (Northern Laksa) is asam laksa, sorta, kinda.
This was washed down by a bowl of nice cold chendol (RM 1). The patrons of this place seem to be predominantly blue collar workers and truckers as can be seen here:
You’re supposed to throw the bowl and spoon in one place and there’s a bucket of water for you to wash your hands in.
Now tell me this isn’t authentic street food!
Alas, I think I used my right hand to wash though.
