"Ngau Chap Laksa"

"Ngau Chap" Laksa with noodle

Today's special is "Ngau Chap" Laksa, a fusion of two dishes. "Ngau Chap" serves nicely marinated cow's parts, like beef balls, cow's intestine, cow's stomach, and even cow's ligament. Laksa, found widely in Malaysia, is a popular spicy noodle soup made with curry and coconut milk. Put these two together, it's a bust.
