Home-made laksa johor and the condiments combo - two thumbs up from me! 👍👍
Then during the recent weekend, we chanced upon a by-the-way holiday trip to Langkawi because we were attending a relative's wedding. And one of the must-have dishes when in Langkawi apparently is this dish called laksa ikan sekoq located by the beach near the airport.
We didn't know at first because when we landed at the Langkawi International Airport we were so hungry we just resorted to the nearest makan place we spotted. And it was that row of stalls by the beach near the airport.
My take on it - oh so divine! The kuah is pekat and nice and delicious, and it has that added oomph with the one whole fish to go with.

|Anddd of course I had to make my husband bring me there again for a second visit on our last day there before going to the airport hihi.|
Sigh and now I teringin. Laksa from pasar malam is not the same. And I've never cooked laksa in my whole life and I'm having this mental-blocked that its such a tedious dish to make.
Speaking of laksa, ever since I was pregnant with my first child I have been 'brain-washed' by my mom and few of my friends in office who are a lil bit older (not that I'm that young la kan hehe) that after giving birth, one has to pantang from eating laksa for at least a year. And the reasons given when asked were very vague, I feel. Angin. Bisa. Sejuk. Tak Elok. and the most classic one has got to be 'Orang tua2 yang cakap'.
Anyways, I wasn't really a laksa fan then. But during my second pregnancy, after coming back to work from maternity leave the first dish I had in office was laksa. I wasn't really thinking about it and I memang completely forgotten about the pantang. And guess what, that night I had a fever and I was really shivering in pain. Wow. Creepy much.
That said, I am now a firm believer that one cannot have laksa after giving birth. Reason? Orang tua2 cakap tak elok. Heh.
So yeah, I better eat laksa puas2 now. Gotta send in the request to husband, he has been very kind in making sure that I get to eat what I want during this pregnancy albeit being the 3rd one for us ❤
Any suggestion on the place that serves a good laksa in KL?
