  1. These clams are different from La-La? But still are delicious. I love it very very spicy. yum...

  2. My Little Space, these are indeed La-la. Cockles have rough, vertical surface & mostly used in dishes like the spicy Laksa served with thick vermicelli. Cockles are delicious too & if you're a dare-devil, try eating them raw :)

  3. Beautiful La-la clams! A quick, tasty way to make these... and with bean paste, yum!

  4. This is great. I have always been intimidated by clams. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Yes, yes, Mae! It's yum-yum :)
