The title should be Mark’s Assam Laksa, but somehow it always failed to register when it’s publish over to FB, so I resorted to naming the title without any apostrophe.
This is normally the last place that my lunch gang will want to eat their lunch, their reason being is, the food is not nice. Then again, my lunch gang are quite the fussy type (except for 2 or 3 lar) so despite having a branch at the Weld, we never had a lunch outing at this shop before.
The owner is actually nyonya lady who runs both the branches. How I know? Because I’ve seen her before at both outlets. Despite the name of the restaurant is called Mark’s Assam Laksa, it serves a variety of local delicacies. So just the week before Christmas (when we can still go out on Saturday night), we had our dinner there with May’s family.
Most of them ordered the Nasi Lemak Ayam. The chicken is succulent enough and the gravy is just nice to eat with the coconut fragrant rice. Added with a scoop of sambal, it’s actually not bad. I wondered why my lunch gang are so against it. Hmm…
As for myself, I ordered Nasi Kunyit (Turmeric glutinous rice) with Rendang. The rendang is soft and tender and the gravy is very coconutty. The only letdown is the rice is quite cold, would be better if it’s piping hot!
Their curry laksa is almost similar to the ones in Melaka. Garnished with mint leaves. I like!
Mark’s Assam Laksa, with a scoop of Har Gou (shrimp paste). Not bad either.
Nasi Briyani with Curry Chicken. Tasty although the rice is again too cold. Would be better if it’s piping hot.
Penang Style Chee Cheong Fun. Why Penang style you asked? It’s because aside from the sweet sauce and chilli sauce, they also added shrimp paste. Which takes the taste to a whole different level. It’s seldom found in any shop here in KL, but widely available in Penang.
Price wise it’s quite economical where the main course ranges from RM8.90 to RM10.90. It’s a great place to be if you don’t want to go all the way to Melaka or Penang for their local delicacies.
Looking back at the pictures, the food is not all that bad. So I always wonder why my lunch gang don’t want to eat at this place. Maybe I will persuade them the next time I meet them up for lunch.
