So Much Food, So Little Time.....

My husband researched restaurants ahead of time, discovering Penang had great reviews. We were on a mission, wanting Laksa, a Maylaysian soup for which there are hundreds of recipes and thousands of condiments from which one might choose to grace its surface creating variations as unique as individual taste.

Once seated, having a few sips of hot tea automatically delivered with the menus, we encountered our first problem of a long, lovely day. There were too many wonderful items on the menu. Malay cuisine is a wonderful mix, a “Best Of” including satay, nasi lemak, rendang, roti canai, murtabak, laksa – dishes from countries near ‘n far, influenced by ancient trade routes including China, north and south India, Thailand and even Portugal.
