Laksa Janggus @ Kg Perlis, Balik Pulau

Price Range : Budget 
Cuisine : Malay 
Recommended For : A pit-stop on a scenic round-island trip 
Catphobia-Friendly? : Yes, much to our surprise! 

No gastronomical visit to Penang is complete without a bowl of laksa! With its thick sour-spicy gravy stock-filled with poached-then-flaked fish, it is no wonder that Penang Assam Laksa was awarded #7 of the World's 50 Most Delicious Foods 2011, as compiled by CNN Travel

Laksa Janggus in Balik Pulau seems to be the most popular laksa joint, as evident by its immense popularity in the blogosphere, and off we set on our journey to see what the hype is all about. 

They've got quite a neat McD-esque system where you place your order at the counter, pay for your food and trot to the nearest empty spot with your piping hot bowl of laksa. A normal bowl of laksa will only set you back a mere RM2.50 per bowl, or RM3.50 if you prefer the Special version that comes with boiled egg and extra gravy. 

Honestly, the laksa here is not the best bowl we have ever had, but for what it's worth, it is still a pretty decent find =) 

Laksa Janggus 
Jalan Bahru, Kg. Perlis

How to Get There: 
1. At Pekan Balik Pulau roundabout, take the route that has Maybank and Shell on your right

2. Go straight until you see Kolej Kemahiran Tinggi Mara (KKTM) on your left, turn right into the road that has some kinda pintu gerbang entrance

3. Straight on. At the traffic light, continue going straight. If you see paddy fields on either side of the car, you're on the right track. 

4. When you reach the junction, follow the Laksa Janggus signboard and turn left. You will see the stall after another 4km of driving.
