I will only come to this restaurant for one thing, the Asam Laksa and not the other options like the fried Kueh Teow, Curry Mee, Prawn Mee or the Rojak.
It’s the original Asam Laksa from the famous place in Air Itam, Penang as I recognized the front man who was handling the food. He is one of the brothers from Penang and now spread his wings to Klang.
If you haven’t already known, Asam Laksa is a sour, fish-based soup noodle – a merger from Chinese and Malay elements known as Peranakan.

It is slightly more expensive than other places, but they don’t skimp on the portions and add a generous number of prawns and cockles, with a good – and rather unusual – garnish of fresh crab meat.

Sup Hameed is renowned for its soup, not just for the wide variety that it offers, but also for the uniqueness of their tastes. Judging on a superficial level will probably do their soup injustice because they aren’t starchy or thick, and look, in fact, like any other soup would; but what distinguishes their soup is their characteristic taste. Most will have their soup served with bread, the roti benggali, which is handmade. If you’re feeling adventurous, they have the “sup torpedo”, which is the bull’s penis soup.
