Hi Ines...there are many different types if laksa in Malaysia depending on the state as every state has their own version. In Penang for example, its more of an "Assam Laksa" where its more sour and uses fish as base. In Kelantan in called "Laksam" where the soup/gravy is fish base but its not as sour and they add coconut cream to it. So, let us know which one ur looking for and we can point you to the right direction...but just so u know, they;re all yummy and u must try them :) about 8 years ago
Try the new food court in Lot 10. They have gone a long way to ensure all "hawkers" are cooking traditional foods the traditional way. Whether it will be to your taste or not . . . well, as Adnin said, there are a lot of different laksas. You can find directions and information here: http://www.lot10.com.my/
The Chow Kit Market is another place to find some delicious laksa. This huge market is a site to see in itself if you have not yet been there. It is located at the end of Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, but everyone in KL knows where it is. It is best to go in the morning or early afternoon as it begins to clear out later in the day.
But (I am sure this is a matter of debate) the best laksa in Malaysia is to be found at the hawker stand in Balik Pulau on the "far side" of Pulau Penang. This tiny township is famous for its Laksa Janggus and Assam Laksa. It is a great stop off in case you are circling the island, which I also highly recommend. about 8 years ago
