Located in the heart of Georgetown, Luk Yea Yan was a convenient place to visit while we were in Penang. Some say they have the best vegetarian assam laksa in Penang and we were determined to find out. Funnily along the way, we realized we were not assam laksa fans so we ended up trying many other dishes from them instead. Each time we were there, the restaurant was PACKED with people. Thankfully, we always managed to get a seat just as some diners leave.
From the food galore above, the only dishes that really stood out was the lotus wrapped rice and fried tofu cubes. Both of these dishes were really yummy and filled with flavours. The rest of the dishes tasted pretty normal and was nothing to shout about. The assam laksa came looking pretty authentic but tasted just like the ones we had at Beyond Veggie. If you are in for comforting vegetarian food with strong chinese wok-style flavours, this will be the place to visit. At all times, the food was served really quickly and the food was really affordable! Most items from the ala carte menu range from RM5-15 depending on portion size. Most of the dishes portion in our pictures are size medium and large.
