So this is definitely a first – I don’t think I’ve ever heard of laksa from Taiwan! It sounds good – I mean hey, I make laksa here in the United States quite often but I’m sure my neighbors haven’t a clue what they’re smelling ‘must be some off kind of Hamburger Helper’ probably going through their minds. But laksa is a seriously tasty thing and I’m keen on seeing what Tseng has come up with for us. Let’s have a look!

The rice noodles. For the Tseng rice noodles, this one is 0.7mm whereas the rest of them are 0.5mm.
A sachet of delicious.
A paste sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added basil, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, fried fishcake, fishball and tofu skin. The noodle was great – a little thicker than the other rice noodle varieties from Tseng. A little heartier which worked well here. The broth was a luxuriant sea of deep orange with a good coconut body. The flavor was not extremely strong in this one, but it was satisfying and quite good. Impressed at this being a Laksa coming from Taiwan. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4713008550236.
Mr. Tseng has a show – looks like a contest!
