Penang is a hawker paradise with a huge variety of interesting street food stalls offering plenty of good and reasonably priced Chinese, Malay and Indian cuisine. I revel in the delights of hawker food, sold throughout the market area, neighbourhood stalls and the narrow back alleys of Penang.

Some of the stalls offer sitting areas while others have none, so you may have to eat while standing up – a bit of a challenge. However, it’s an even bigger challenge to decipher what goes into each dish and just where those flavours dancing on your palate stem from. This is where I can help.

Hokkien Mee

What it is: Also known as prawn mee, Hokkien mee is served with choice of either blanched yellow noodles or rice vermicelli, or a combination of both.

 Pan Mee

What it is: Pan Mee is also known as mee hoon kueh in Hokkien. You can have either the dry version or with soup. Pan mee is a type of noodle made of rice flour that is handmade manually on the spot. The prepared small lumps of dough are kept fresh in a tight container, and when the time comes, they’re flattened and cut into strips using a noodle-making machine.

CHAPATI
What it is: Chapati is an Indian flatbread made of wheat flour. It’s a staple in the Indian community’s diet. There is a very light flavour stemming from the wheat dough to this flatbread and it is simply delicious when dipped in curry.

SAMOSA

What it is: Savoury samosa & curry puffs are popular deep-fried snacks sold mainly at Indian and Malay street food stalls. They’re made out of dough cut into small pieces and stuffed with a savoury spicy filling. Fillings might vary slightly but most vendors have the vegetarian version filled with essentially spicy curry paste, potatoes and onions. The meaty version with chicken meat is also available. Samosas are normally triangular-shaped while curry puffs are crescent-shaped and tapered at the ends to keep the filling intact.

There are many new cafes with interesting ambience and unique features to explore in Penang, especially with the cafe culture gaining much popularity over the last few years. Most of these quaint cafes managed by both locals and expatriates are located in the heritage enclave of George Town and it is definitely worth exploring on foot.

Recently I had the honor to be interviewed by rasarasa.net. The article ‘The Accidental Food Blogger’ appeared in the section – Talking Food, whereby they recorded views of people who contribute to the promotion of Malaysian food.

The entire on-line interview, which revolved mainly about myself and my food website from the foundation where it all started, was published on the 15th October 2010.

Recently I got the pleasure of writing for the New Straits Times newspaper. It was a privilege to contribute my articles which will be featured in the Life & Times section covering mostly on food. It gives me the chance of introducing and promoting mainly food from Penang (with other places in time to come) as well as covering interviews with chefs and restaurateurs. From time to time I will contribute to the Travel & Living section as well.

What’s the difference between writing for the newspaper and my own food blog? Well, I have to deliver the articles by the deadline and I really enjoy the writing experience. Furthermore, it gives me great joy to see my work in print!

I have written a few articles, all of which have now been published and there are more to come. Do grab a copy of the New Straits Times and check out my articles. Hope everyone enjoys reading it!

I was in Kuala Lumpur recently to attend the launching of the inaugural fund raising event “JAMUAN TEH MALAYSIA” (Malaysia Tea Party) in the elegant ballroom of Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur. The event was modeled after the Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, held annually by the Australian Cancer Council.

Initiated by the Australian High Commission and MANZA (Malaysia Australian New Zealand Association) and organized by the BCWA (Breast Cancer Welfare Association) and NCSM (National Cancer Society Malaysia), the event featured a Fashion Show by our local outstanding designer, Carven Ong. Many gather for the event which was graced by Her Excellency Ms Penny Williams, Australia High Commissioner to Malaysia.
