[Kuantan, Malaysia] Curry Laksa from Hoi Yin, Teluk Cempedak

This popular curry laksa noodle spot is a must-visit if one’s in Kuantan, the gateway city to Club Med in Cherating on the Malaysian East Coast. Hoi Yin’s curry noodles have a flavoursome, fairly spicy gravy, topped with very well-poached chicken, fishballs, fishcake slivers, potatoes and tofu puffs, which complement the noodles beautifully.

Address: Restoran Hoi Yin, 31, Jalan Teluk Cempedak, 25050 Kuantan, Pahang, Malaysia. Tel: +609-567 3871. Open: 7am to 2.30pm (closed on Mondays fortnightly).

Try to avoid peak breakfast (8am-9am) or lunch (12noon-1.30pm) hours, else you may be kept waiting for up to 45 minutes for your bowl of noodles.
