I have spent the last two weeks in Malaysia, on Penang Island. Penang is famous for it's delicious street food that has been influenced by diverse cultures and traditions. You can eat your way through traditional Malay, Indian, Hokkien and Nonya snacks and treats – I ate so much I think I've put on 5kgs! Never mind! There's always time for diets and too little time for curry mee!
Here are some of my favourites!
Fluffy roti canai served with curry for breakfast!
My favourite: curry mee (egg and rice noodles with chicken, prawn and tofu in a rich curry soup)
An amazing home-cooked meal: beef rendang, fish baked in coconut and spices, stir-fried water spinach and ketupat (rice steamed inside bamboo)
Banana Leaf: My favourite lunch! Three different vegetarian curries served with rice, pickles, dahl and papadums on a banana leaf!
A delicious Thai dinner at Tree Monkey: Som Tum (green papaya salad), Tom Kha Gai (coconut soup) and a rich but mild Massaman Curry – YUM!
Fish balls (shaped like cute little pigs!) and pork sausages in noodle soup with broccoli! Ahh…. not my favourite, but had to try it!
