After our long awaiting snack at Lorong Selamat. We head on straight to Pasar Air Itam’s laksa. MH was craving for it as well. He told me that is a must try when we were on our way to Penang the day before. Despite the warnings of the place was famous of using tissue paper in boiling the soup, I just had to take the risk.

... unlike those served in KV, this doesn't come with pineapple and the soup wasn't sweet, which I like.

The taste of the soup was what I would be expecting from an asam laksa. Similar to my hometown’s asam laksa where there’s no pineapple. Though there were quite a bit of jalapeno being used here. Unfortunately, according to MH, if we were to be there in the morning, there would be more mackerel in the bowl of noodle, as opposed to none at all when we had it. Except for some minced leftover fish meat sinking at the bottom of the pot. Anyway, there weren’t any visible tissue paper particles found in the soup.
