Out of many delish foods this city serve, Tangerang locals still love their Laksa for the most obvious reason.
“The peculiarity of Laksa Tangerang lies in its thick, yellow broth that exudes strong spices aroma. It also carries a hint of sweetness due to the mung bean” said Executive Chef Novotel Tangerang, Salehin.
Contrary to popular Laksa Bogor and Betawi, Laksa Tangerang doesn’t use oncom (fermented soybean paste). It is mostly served with shredded chicken and eggs.
