Our search for penang laksa was both rewarding and frustrating.
The two apparently most well-renowned stalls (Air Itam and Weld Quay/Lebuh Aceh) were closed the several times we tried them. Maybe next time.
We did make it to Penang Road several times (inside the coffee shop with the famous cendol stand outside) and to Pulau Tikos (sp?) (also inside a coffee shop). We preferred the Penang Road version, which had the fish broken into little pieces and integrated throughout the bowl. Excellent flavor overall.
Pulau Tikos served the fish intact at the top of the bowl, Broth was good but not as good to my taste as Penang Road.
