Actually, depending on where you are .

In Penang,

laksa has two types ; one with coconut milk n one without.

Curry noodles; majority cooked with coconut milk n spices n u add the chilli sauce,
come with sotong, pig's blood , taufu n prawns n mint leaves.

The other come with chicken cook together with the curry.

In Ipoh,

I think there is only one type, rich curry soup n ingredients you order according to your choice , mostly meat.

Wet n dry types of curry

Laksa, soup mostly without coconut milk. Order liew seperately like fishballs etc


Laksa is actually curry mee.

I wonder if all the above description is correct.

Don't know ... and don't care.

A rose by any other name smells as sweet.

I like both types, the laksa with coconut milk and the sour fish soup type. But I am not that keen with the dry curry noodles. Especially the famous one near MGS school at the roundabout. The curry powder tastes like grit.
..Ouch!!...that hurts!!!
