Daughter Peoh at SS15 Subang: Snapshot
The Ang family’s nearly 70-year-old legacy of asam laksa spreads this month to Subang, extending to a new generation of the clan whose culinary roots rest in the beloved stall their matriarch started in Penang’s Air Itam market. Daughter Peoh refers to Evelynn Ang, who aims to preserve the authentic asam laksa – in the unmistakable broth that’s simultaneously tangy, sweet and spicy, fragrant with prawn paste, flavoursome with flaked sardines – that’s one of George Town’s most cherished heritage recipes. A hearty bowl costs RM8.90, satisfactory enough to revive Kek Lok Si memories. The menu also includes char kuey teow with duck egg (RM9.90; reasonable, though the cockles prove puny), Hokkien char, rojak, and prawn mee. Fun fact: Evelynn says her father currently runs Klang’s Angcle Peoh, which has earned a solid reputation in recent years for Penang specialities.
