KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 27): CNN has listed Penang assam laksa as among the top 10 best foods in the globe.
The US-based broadcaster ranked assam laksa at No 7, ahead of Thai heavyweight Tom yum goong, which is placed at No 8 this year.
CNN annually gives its “pick of the world's best foods” with a top 50 list, reported AFP.
AFP wrote that “Interestingly, France – a country famed for its cuisine – has no entry in the top 10”.
The country was only able to have its “traditional croissant” placed at No 21.
Sigh, if not for CMCO travel restrictions (Klang Valley folk here), we would be rushing to Penang over the weekend to slurp down some of the assam laksa.
