Who would have thought that our local food will be listed as one of the world’s best culinary experiences?

The Malay Mail reported that the travel guide, Lonely Planet, just ranked our curry laksa – especially the ones sold in Kuala Lumpur at Madras Lane – number TWO in the master list of 500 most authentic bucket-list culinary experiences all over the world. Yep, this is legit!

The  “Ultimate Eatlist” which features culinary experiences from editors, food, and travel writers in countries like Canada, Norway, North Korea, Namibia, Chile, and many more were evaluated and ranked based on the criteria mentioned below:

  • Taste
  • Cultural importance
  • The ambience of the location

So, it looks like our curry laksa was ranked No 2 in the ultimate list – which features 500 types of other cuisines – because it fits all the criteria listed above. What’s more Malaysian than curry laksa sold at a stall in an alley, amirite?

Already thinking of trying these bowls of curry goodness?

Well, the curry laksa recommended by Lonely Planet is sold at an alley (Madras Lane) just off Petaling Street in the bustling KL city. You are definitely spoilt for choice when you’re at this place because there is more than one stall that sells curry laksa on this street. Yum!

Besides being rich and creamy, this curry laksa is also loaded with other ingredients – like, brinjals, cockles, long beans, chicken, pork skin (optional), tofu puffs and a squeeze of lime – that will surely make your tummy happy and full. 

One bowl of curry laksa is all it takes to put you in food coma! 


Apart from Madras Lane, you can also find these delicious bowls of noodles all over KL city too!
