Yummy Siamese Laksa At Restoran Yum Yum, Ipoh.

Last Friday 2 of my retiree friends and I met up for lunch. My friend told me that only on Fridays this restaurant serves Siamese Laksa. Being a fan of Laksa and Siamese Laksa, I was more than eager to get a taste of this laksa. I remembered that my last visit was a long time ago and I have never tasted their laksa.

The hot sunny weather did not deter us from going out for the laksa. On our second round, we got a parking space within walking distance. It was about 1.35 pm when we entered the restaurant. All the tables were taken but the waitress led us to a big table where 2 ladies were just finishing their meal. Just the right timing!
This round, the 3 of us decided to order the Siamese Laksa set.
We came especially for this laksa.
 These crispies are for 3 sets of Siamese Laksa. The lime juice can be added for those who prefer their Laksa to be more sourish.
After squeezing the lime juice over my bowl of Siamese Laksa, I am ready to taste and enjoy. Siamese Laksa has coconut milk added whereas Assam Laksa is without coconut milk. The main ingredients in the laksa are steamed fish flake, spices, shredded veggies, etc, etc.
 Our dessert - Black glutinous rice sweet porridge or tong sui in Chinese.
Black glutinous rice with coconut milk, not too sweet, just right for us.
Laksa + dessert of the day = MYR 7.50  per set.
 1st side order - Yum Yum Brinjal (Eggplant) MYR 10.00.
 2nd side order - Deep fried aromatic sotong or calamari. MYR 17.50
 Decorations on the wall.
We enjoyed the food and also the beautiful company of friends.

Restoran Yum Yum is located at:
5, Persiaran Greenhill, Ipoh. Tel: 05-2537686.

Work happily together. Don't try to act big.

Don't try to get into the good graces of important people,

but enjoy the company of ordinary folks.

And don't think you know it all!

    1. Hi Phong Hong, you must try this Siamese Laksa. This is the lemak version because it has coconut milk.

  3. Happy New Year Ms. Nancy. :-)

    I've stayed in Thailand for 6 months but I haven't tasted the Siamese Laksa. I just tried the Thai boat noodles but not this. Thanks for your post now I know how the laksa look like. Maybe I'll try it next time when I go back to Thailand.

  5. I have never try Siameses laksa. I doubt whether I can find it in Kuching. I love the dessert. The egg plant looks like deep fried tofu.

  9. Siamese laksa is created by both Nyonya n Thai living in Penang. It does resemble to Thai yellow curry noodle. But the Penang's version has more fresh herbs in it plus fish meat n dried prawn. One have to try this Siamese laksa as there r not much authentic ones around. It's totally different from any other types of laksa available in Malaysia

    1. Thank you, Daniel Chong. Thank you for the information about the Siamese Laksa. I agree that it is not easy to find really good Siamese Laksa in town and they may not be as tasty.

  10. It would be interesting to have a taste from every dish you've posted on your blog. The food looks so very different from what we are used to but I heard that Siamese Seafood Laksa is to die for. I love seafood... That bowl of Siamese Laksa looks a bit different than what I've seen before. Thanks for sharing. Hugs,

    1. Like you, no point for me to cook this tong sui for me alone because hubby has to cut down his sugar intake. Hoping to go back to taste the laksa and tong sui soon.
