I visited Jimmy’s Recipe, in the Galeries in Sydney CBD. Trying their Assam Laksa was my sole purpose for visiting, and I’m glad I went. The soup is hot but not spicy, with thick cylindrical rice noodles, yummy fishy bits and chunks of pineapple and cucumber to help cool the heat. A solid bowl of soupy noodles for less than $10 – it makes me feel like I’m back in Adelaide!
I recommend this dish for an enjoyable change from the coconut based laksa which is very common in Sydney.
I can’t wait to try Malay Chinese Takeaway’s version of the Assam Laksa this week. It has glowing reviews but only pops up in the menu every six weeks – keep up with its appearance by checking their website. At that time I will compare the two dishes.
