Fried Laksa
F5.3 | 1/250s | ISO 200

At first glance it looks like just a ordinary fried noodles. Due to my ignorance, I only thought laksa in Malaysia only comes in 2 type, curry laksa or asam laksa. Curry laksa is a coconut curry soup with noodles, while asam laksa is a sour fish soup with noodles. Thick rice noodles also known as laksa noodles are most commonly used, although thin rice vermicelli (bee hoon or mee hoon) are also common and some variants use other types. Each states in Malaysia has its own trademark laksa too. Fried laksa nowadays may variant from the types of ingredients depending on personal preference but the laksa noodles are compulsary otherwise you don't call it Fried Laksa...right?
