Laksa is a popular spicy noodle soup from Peranakan culture also known as Baba and Nyonya, which is a merger of Chinese and Malay elements found in Malaysia and Singapore - Wikipedia
The origin of the name "laksa" is unclear. One theory traces it back to Hindi/Persian lakhshah, referring to a type of vermicelli. It has also been suggested that "laksa" may also be derived from the Chinese word "la sha" (辣沙; pronounced "latsa" in Cantonese), meaning "spicy sand" due to the ground dried prawns which makes the gravy taste extremely sandy. The last theory is that the name laksa is derived from the similar sounding word "dirty" in Hokkien due to its appearance - Wikipedia
Noodles with pork and beef wantons and sliced egg in a coconut curry broth. Served with soy sauce and chili.
It smelled of fish sauce but tasted of coconut.
Based on smell alone, you might rethink on eating it but as soon as you start sipping the broth you'll never stop. Even if it's in between thick and thin and was very oily, it was very flavorful.
