Penang-born Jason Khaw and his wife are known for selling traditional Penang food, winning several hawker awards along the way. The authenticity of his signature dishes of Penang assam laksa, fried kway tiao and prawn noodles have earned his stall many fans.
Unknown to many, the humble hawker was the British High Commissioner’s Resident Chef for 14 years, assuring a high quality in his food. I liked the Penang assam laksa. So authentic. So good. It was also not as sour and spicy as I expected it to be, with a wide assortment of ingredients with finishing touches of mint leaves and chilli padi.
