It is served with thick rice noodles and fresh condiments such as sliced cucumbers, onions, mint, pineapples, strong and sweet prawn paste, and ginger flower.

    Johor Laksa uses spaghetti instead of rice noodles and egg noodles. The condiments are quite similar to the Penang asam laksa. It is served in thick sauce (cooked with coconut milk, fish, dried prawns, fresh herbs and spices) with spicy sambal chilli on the side. Squeeze a bit of lime, mix together, and dig in. It is almost a fusion of Italian pasta and Japanese udon.
