22 September 2006. Again I patronise Asam Pedas Hjh. Mona at Kota Laksemana in the city of Malacca. As usual I order the ikan kembong and a glass of iced lemon tea. One meal cost RM 5.00Pic 1: This is a set of Asam Pedas meal. Rice, cucumber, and salted egg is the basic dish. The choice of fish for the asam pedas gravy can be chosen according to patron’s taste bud.
