We were filled to the brim after dinner!
But we had parked in KSL Mall, and I recalled that I had tried a very yummy assam laksa in the mall before.
After much cajoling, Ms. K declared that she would just take one bite, so that we would not regret not trying it 😛

We ordered a bowl (RM6) to share. It was an addictive combination of sweet, sour and spicy… and Ms. K definitely had more than a bite! I felt a sense of achievement, LOL!

We had arrived at the airport early, and after browsing all the eateries at the departure hall, we decided to try out Pinang Kopitiam. We ordered a Penang Laksa (RM10+ 6%GST) and Rojak Buah (RM6+).
Had some difficulty trying to communicate with the staff as he kept explaining things in Malay, and we had to catch several key phrases and clarify in English. But he sure was very friendly and helpful! When he served the laksa, he asked if we wanted something, but we could not understand. Then he went “Penang flavour. Don’t know? Nevermind, I show you”, and he came back with the prawn paste, which was the saviour of the dish! Ooohhh wooo! The noodles might have been a bit overcooked, but the prawn paste made the gravy very flavourful, and we thought it was better than the other version that we tried.
They were very generous with the prawn paste for the rojak as well, and I particularly enjoyed the tart green mango mixed with the sweet sauce.
This was such a pleasant find at the airport 🙂
Of course, we have always heard how KFC in Malaysia is so much better than that in Singapore, so we simply popped opposite and ordered a 2-Piece Chicken of original flavoured chicken (RM9.20 nett). The meat was succulent and juicy. But we can’t really tell if it’s truly better than Singapore’s because we have not had KFC in Singapore for such a looong time… Haha… 😛

After the not-too-satisfying char kway tiao, we spotted another char kway tiao stall as we made our way back to the hotel, and this time, they fry it with duck egg!!!
Without hesitation, we ordered our second plate of Char Kw6ay Tiao with Duck Egg (RM6) within 2 hours 😮 To add on to the variety, we also ordered a Penang Laksa (RM5), and White Nutmeg Drink (RM2.30).
This plate of char kway tiao was so worth the calories! Something about the duck egg simply made this dish super flavourful 😀 The laksa sadly was lacking the sourness of the assam and was overly spicy for us.
But we were totally satisfied with the CKT alone! 😛
