Record for Most Bowls of Laksa Delivered
Love it or hate it, but asam laksa lovers certainly had a field day when thousands of them opened up their foodpanda apps to order 15,381 bowls from D’Laksa, the much-loved Malaysian laksa chain.
For one magical hour during lunchtime between 12 noon to 1 pm yesterday, aficionados of D’Laksa’s fragrant fishy broth and signature prawn paste made their orders count towards the ‘Most laksa sold through delivery platform in an hour’ in the Malaysian Book of Records. Their meals were made even better thanks to exclusive discounts offered by foodpanda for this special occasion.
With foodpanda delivery partners and D’Laksa staff from 53 outlets nationwide working hand-in-hand to deliver customers their piping hot asam laksa orders, this extraordinary feat signifies the larger commitment by both brands to delivering excellence and satisfaction to laksa enthusiasts across Malaysia.
The popularity of D’Laksa’s exquisite and piquant asam laksa, offered at a mouth-watering price of RM5.99 for three bowls of asam laksa during the 6.6 campaign, led to a surge in demand as customers eagerly savoured their favourite laksa varieties. Notably, the outlet in Queensbay Mall, Penang outlet saw the biggest contribution of orders, tirelessly producing and delivering the aromatic bowls of D’Laksa to satisfy the cravings of laksa enthusiasts. For the record, the other top three locations that demonstrated the highest demand for D’Laksa’s asam laksa were Kepong, Bandar Utama, and Shah Alam.
