[if you are unfamiliar with the different varieties of Laksa, just read the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laksa]
I am looking for decent Asam and/or Sarawak Laksa in Sydney.
Laksa is probably my favourite soup-based dish ever, and my favourite variety would have to be Asam Laksa. Unfortunately, Asam Laksa is not all that easy to find unless you're in certain parts of Malaysia. I had one in Melbourne once, but only after convincing the waiter that I really did want Asam Laksa, and not Curry Laksa.
I am also interested in sampling varieties of Sarawak Laksa (has elements of both Curry and Asam Laksa), or Indonesian Laksa variants...
maybe here? this place has been getting good reviews forever but maybe it's a bit out of the way. i haven't eaten here for some time so unsure if it's still good. almost 8 years ago
I have tried Assam Laksa every chance I got as I used to live in Butterworth/Penang and have not found anything worth recommending in Sydney - closest I could get to the authentic taste and texture was the Assam fish at Chinta Ria http://www.chintaria.com/ at the roof terrace of Cockle bay wharf, Darling Harbour.
If anyone has found an Assam laksa around sydney that tastes like the real thing please reply. =) almost 8 years ago

Assam laksa in Sydney.
The place is called Malay Chinese - I'll say without hesitation that it's the most authentic i've tried outside of Penang.
Shop 1, 50-58 Hunter St, Sydney NSW 2000
(Closest intersection Bligh St/ Castlereagh St.)
Problem is, they only do it every X thursdays, so pays to check the daily specials first.
