Laksa is a common food here..there are variation according to the different states. There are Sarawak Laksa, Johor Laksa and the most popular Penang Laksa or commonly known as Assam Laksa.
Laksa in general is spicy soup with noodle or meehoon (vermicelli). Different ingredients are added according to different states. For assam laksa, pineapple, mint leaves, onions and fish is added. And of course not forgetting the most important prawn paste which add to the sweetness of the soup.
They say the best assam laksa can only be found in Penang. The price is cheaper over there as well.

I've had the Kuching/Sarawak laksa and the Penang laksa at Malaysian restaurants here in NYC.

Personally, I prefer the Sawarak version.
