I could smell it as I approached the stall. A fishy tangy Assam smell. The first slurp was very positive. Spicy and sour. Very good Assam soup. I enjoyed the Q noodles. But I'm not a fish person. Mainly cos I'm sensitive abt bones. If they would change the fish to meat I would absolutely love this.

This might just be as close as you can get to having the real deal. Penang Signature only has one item on the menu — Assam Laksa ($3.50). White, slightly translucent noodles are pre-packed into takeaway containers, even if you're eating it there. Upon order, the staff gives the huge pot of broth a good stir before ladling out the lusciously rich gravy that Tastemaker Fabian Poon describes as "belacan, heh ko (prawn paste), lemongrass, assam and my favourite, mint leaves all mixed harmoniously together in a fish broth". Tastemaker Kenneth Lee loves how the "sweetish prawn paste mixes perfectly with the sour tamarind" without overpowering the other flavours. Pro tip: Request for the gravy to be stored separately from the noodles if you're going to have this taken away — it keeps the noodles from getting soft and soggy!
Avg Price: $5 per person

penang just got closer at $3.50; coconut-milk and cockles free. salivate immediately at the whiff of the assam fragrance when you receive your order. this is as close as you get; sourish piquant tang of everything penang assam laksa. think belacan, heh ko/prawn paste, lemon grass, assam and my favourite, mint leaves all mixed harmiously together in a fish broth. wish they go overdrive in taste and spiciness but sure enough to excite your buds already. a satisfactory bowl definitely! #burpplebtfc.

Penang Signature Assam Laksa #02-28

An explosion of flavours in a bowl 💥💥💥

For $3.50, one gets a large hearty bowl of Penang Assam laksa. First, you'll get hit by the fragrance of Assam which will make you wanna order it. The sweetish prawn paste mixes perfectly with the sour tamarind and complements all the strong flavours like lemongrass, pineapples and onions. Every bite is both refreshing and savoury! 😝 Ensure to mix well before eating!

Around March, I noticed a stall called Penang Signature opened and they only sell 1 item!! Assam Laksa. I always gave it a miss because I didn't phil like having Assam Laksa when I was at the food centre. Last night however, I was thinking of Assam Laksa! So I went to get it.

I noticed that they only have sell their laksa using disposable paper bowls. I said I'm bringing it home to eat, the guy asked if I want the noodles separated. Yes please!

The verdict: It's almost like eating the Assam Laksa in Penang! The gravy is quite tangy and has the viscosity of the stall I like at Lorong Selamat in Penang. The noodles are of a very chewy type. The fish don't come in big chunks like in Penang but it's only $3.50 and it's in Singapore, so can't complain.
I seldom see a queue, probably it's because people need mood to eat Penang Laksa like me. Hope they will stay open! All the best!

The video will show you more.
