Unlike other laksas that are served with soup, this dry laksa has a strong hae bee hiam (hiam: spicy; hae bee: dried shrimp) flavour as well as the fragrance of the laksa leaves. With every serving comes a generous portion of bean sprouts, julienned tau pok, fishcake and largely peeled prawns!

Famous Sungei Road Trishaw Laksa serves two versions of Asia Delight Laksa: the classic and one with crayfish. Unlike other laksa, this one is made by cooking scallops, dried oysters, and dried prawns in broth and substituting coconut milk with fresh coconut juice. It had a light and refreshing feel on the palate, as well as a silky texture that set it apart from the rest. The hawkers there were also very generous with their serving of the ingredients.

Renee Tan Eryn founded Jelebu Dry Laksa intending to turn it into a food truck promoting Singaporean delights in Los Angeles. Renee's culinary prowess can be seen in how the prawn shells were lavishly charred to the point that they could slip off.
