Lakso is a spicy Indonesian noodle dish served in savoury yellowish coconut milk-based soup, flavoured with fish, and sprinkled with fried shallots. The dish is one of the regional specialty of Palembang, the capital of South Sumatra, Indonesia.[1]

Lakso is often described as the Palembang-style laksa. However, actually it is quite different from recipes for laksa common in neighboring Malaysia and Singapore.[2] Lakso is quite similar to burgo, although burgo is folded rice pancake and its soup has a whitish color. In Palembang, lakso together with burgo is a popular choice for breakfast.[3]
