of Malaysia, curry noodle. Here we go.
(Trevor slurping) Mm, whoa. Wow, it is all about that broth. It is so complex. You can taste a little lemongrass, and you can taste the
incredible smoothness of the sambal and the
milkiness of the coconut milk, and then we've got the torch ginger like an aromatic flower, with the mint. It's like a complete pop of flavor. And then it's just a little spicy. I think to me that is a
perfect bowl of noodles, one of the best noodles of the world, the curry mee and then the
asam laksa in Malaysia. – Thank you. – That was incredible, guys. Bye bye. And to finish off a day of eating, just down the street, we
stumbled on the perfect dessert, street Kampung village
