As many visitors to my once world famous food blog know I am still in Msia stuffing my face with food. I also appear to have hired a professional photographer because today’s breakfast looks totally amazing!
Actually, it looked more like this:
This is Roti Canai, a very stretchy, high gluten, flat bread served with sauces of lentil and fish curry. It was really very nice and I did not get ill either, which is cool seeing we bought it off a rat-infested street ‘dealer’ for the comedy price of 1 pound 50 including 2 condensed milk teas.
With the pineapple, cucumber, you can add chilies:
Which I didn’t go near after yesterday’s incident. Anyway, our dish came with poached mackerel:
Assam Laksa is very sour and has some interesting flavours kicking around, though I wasn’t too fond of the mackerel because the poaching had made it very dry; and I though the mint was a fraction overpowering. Finally, there was just was a weird background flavour I didn’t get, as if I was eating a slightly malevolent alien. Overall, I would try this again, but from a different dealer as I don’t think this one knew what they were doing.
After another few hours of wandering around we were recommended this traditional Chinese street market:
It was very busy and very hard to figure out how to order or pay for anything, but eventually we got some noodles which came with a nice sweet sauce and an interesting ‘red’ sauce. Cost: 40p.
Behind where we were sat was a queue for deep fried ‘stuff’, which to someone living in Glasgow was something I couldn’t afford to miss! But being too shy/foreign/clueless, I sent my half-Chinese GF into battle:
After about 20 mins she returned with:
Deep fried tofu, chilies stuffed with fish paste, served over a light fish stock. This was nice, and only cost around a pound and fifty pence.
Finally we took a trip to the Petronas towers:
But what do you think? Been to Msia? Tried any of this stuff? Think I should steer clear of social commentary? Great! Then hook me up on Twitter!
