Laksa Teluk Kechai

Everyone who knows that my in laws are in Alor Setar, asked me if I have tried Laksa Teluk Kechai. It seems that it is a must try!

So hubby and my in laws made a few attempts to take me there, but unfortunately, the laksa is finished (yup, the laksa can be sold out as early as 5pm!) or the stall is closed!

So finally, the last time we are back in Alor Setar, we managed to get it at around 2pm.

According to hubby, this is the most famous ones, Zakaria, Laksa Teluk Kechai (along Jalan Kuala Kedah)

Customers started filling up the kedai.

So we decided to just tapau. The funny thing is, you didnt get to order by the normal quantity, say 4 bungkus laksa, or 8 bungkus laksa and so on. It goes by kilos! hehehe... We ordered for 1kg laksa (it serves for about 5 - 6 pax). The price is RM10/kg.

This is the condiments for 1kg laksa. It is not pre-cut for you. Dia bagi seketul-seketul... bawang, timun, cili padi, telur... balik rumah, potong la sendiri ye. Bagus jugak, you get to cut and serve it fresh as and when you want to consume the laksa.

The condiments is prepared by my sis-in-law, not me... thats why it looks presentable... hehe

And the most important ingredient is this "sambal kelapa". It is made with coconut, obviously. It is not spicy as the name suggest, but the sambal kelapa will make the laksa thicker and gives more "kick" to it. Seriously... memang kaw!

So apa lagi, sila la try if you happen to be in Alor Setar.. I'm not sure if this Laksa is available else where.
