When I was a boy in Penang, whenever the topic of laksa came up, there’s always two stalls that came up in the conversations among the locals – the one at Balik Pulau, and the Ayer Itam stall. The good news is, for those of us who has moved to Klang Valley, the famous stall from Ayer Itam, Angcle Peoh’s asam laksa, is now available in Bukit Tinggi, Klang.

Restoran Angcle Peoh is a non halal outfit located just a stone’s throw away from one of the larger malls in the country – AEON Bukit Tinggi.

While Klang may sound like a distance too far for some, it is actually just half an hour’s drive from Petaling Jaya on a decent day, and we Malaysians have a habit to go far in search for good food anyway, kan?

While the Ayer Itam stall offers only asam laksa, the air-conditioned restaurant in Bukit Tinggi carries other Penang hawker dishes on the menu as well.

The asam laksa is as good as the original, with the old man himself often seen at the kitchen, it is as authentic as you can get. It is arguably one of the best asam laksa in Klang Valley you can get right now (I’d also recommend Aik Asam Laksa at Seapark, PJ as a close second)

The version of char kuih teow cooked up at this place is pretty decent as well, though I find myself preferring Uncle Vincent’s version (Bukit Rimau) just a tad more, though both of these are still a notch below Lot 10‘s duck egg CKT in my view.

I was delighted that they have Hokkien Char (Penang style fried hokkien mee) on the menu, gave it a try and had an okay experience. The taste was there, but there was way too much noodle to properly enjoy the dish.

Cendol was alright here, and don’t order the curry mee, it was awful, and not even a proper Penang version at that. For other dishes, well, you gotta try them and tell me.

    KY, Hokkien noodle all kind is what I like too bad not found in San Francisco. My sister came for a visit and with a toy poodle puppy. My cats was eating and puppy
    went over and took one of cats feed dish and carry it off with her. Cats all look
    at each other and planning to jump this puppy. My sister now will not bring puppy
    over for fear of puppy getting gang maul by cats.

    The laksa noodle is not the same – in Penang – they uses the fresh laksa noodle. At Bkt Tinggi – they use the dry noodle and boil it (like spaghetti) – you notice the noodle is more shiny and harder. Overall – good asam laksa
