Home Cooked Penang Asam Laksa in Johor Jaya JB 黄家住家正宗槟城亞參啦沙 JK1527
Bong Family Home Cooked Authentic Penang Laksa 黄家住家正宗槟城 Laksa in Johor Jaya has been in business for three years already and is well known among locals.
Johor Jaya 黄家住家正宗槟城亞參啦沙好吃。原料, 香料充足, 鱼肉也很多。 攤主來自槟城。好有槟城的味道。莫莫查查也很赞。住家式餐廳特別環境。這美食真的一定要試試。1, Jalan Keembong 32, Taman Johor。 拜六礼拜 10:00am - 6:00pm 开罢了。
黄家住家正宗槟城 Laksa operates out of the family home at the junction of Jalan Keembong 26 and Keembong 32. The stall opens only on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am to 6:00pm.
The Bong sisters who hail from Balik Pulau (Penang) prepare and cook everything themselves here in their home kitchen. This is as close to home cooking as you could get. Wrong. This is home cooking. Period.
We started with two small bowls of Penang laksa, which is actually Nyonya asam laksa (RM5 for each small bowl).
The base stock is made by boiling ikan kembung (small mackerel fish) in water. When cooked, the ikan kembung is deboned, diced and put back into the boiling broth to give it body.
The fish broth is further flavoured by hot spices which give it a mild, layered spicy sting, flavour and spice aromas.
There are also asam geluger slices which give Penang laksa it's signature mild tanginess.
Chili padi, torch ginger flower, shallots (not onion), peppermint, lettuce, cucumber and pineapple are added to the bowl before finishing and serving.
A squeeze of fermented prawn sauce (hae ko) is added to taste. 黄家 uses a good quality savoury sweet prawn paste with a nice aroma which they bring in from Penang. This is different from typical average quality fermented prawn sauce which tends to be overly salty or even smells bad.
As you can see, a lot goes into each bowl of good Penang asam laksa. It's probably the most elaborate dish RM5 can buy in JB.
Notice the three bowls? This was our third bowl this morning hehehe 😋
When you are at 黄家住家正宗槟城 Laksa remember to try their fully loaded Nyonya bubur cha cha. There's sweet potato, yam, sago, black-eye peas, tapioca flour jelly and more in the fresh creamy coconut milk sweetened with gula Melaka.
It's the best bubur cha cha that I have tasted and for RM3 a bowl... Wow..
Must tabao lo... (take away costs RM5).
The Nyonya bubur cha cha is Ms Anna Bong's family heirloom recipe.
When it is available, remember to tabao a tub (RM5) or two of 黄家's pickled mangoes. The crunchy mango is sourish sweet.
The mangoes are from this large tree just outside the 黄家 family home.
👍 Take your time to enjoy the authentic Penang asam laksa and bo bo cha at the 黄家 family home. It's probably the most exquisitely delicious food you can buy for RM5 and RM3 respectively in Johor Bahru. Must Try.
