Must Try Penang Food – Fall in Love with Food!
Penang is a world-famous city in Malaysia for the unimaginably wide variety of great food they offer. It is considered a paradise for foodies as every dish is rich in flavour, evolving from the roots of Penang’s multi-ethnic history. To make things easy for you, here is some must-try food in Penang. Nasi Lemak An aroma so good it will elevate your tastebuds, Nasi Lemak is a type of rice cooked in coconut milk that comes with sambal, peanuts, boiled egg, anchovies, and fried chicken or fish. This dish is very filling, and the rich coconut flavour makes the rice taste absolutely delicious. Penang Laksa Laksa is a hot soup with Japanese udon noodles combined with fresh greens, chilli, and lime. Sometimes chunks of tuna are added for more flavour. This signature dish has a sweet-sour taste that some people savour, and some hate. You can try for yourself to see which category you fall into! Satay When Malaysian food meets the art of barbeque, you get Satay! The grilled meat served as mini skewers are dipped in peanut butter and curry sauce to give you the most succulent snack. Chicken is the most common meat used to make satays, but you can find beef ones too. Pair it with a cold beer for a perfect evening indulgence. Roti Bakar The ultimate dessert in Penang, the Roti Bakar is toasted bread smeared with butter and coconut jam, topped with a soft-boiled egg. The roots of this dish are from the British Empire. You can ask this for breakfast with a cup of coffee at your serviced apartments in Bukit Mertajam.
