Laksa is of Malay origin and is commonly sold all over Kedah. This is certainly one of Malaysia's most popular noodle dish. It is rounded rice noodles (similar to but thinner than Japanese Odon noodles) served with gravy made from fish flakes and rich spices. The dish is garnished with vegetables and is certainly a healthy dish not cooked with oil.
Be sure to try Laksa Kedah when in Kedah!. Kedah Laksa is slightly different from the Penang Nyonya Laksa (see Penang Nyonya Food)- it is less sour and the fish flakes in the gravy is usually blended.
