about

With its mash-up of Indian, Malaysian, and Hokkien Chinese influences and flavors, few places on this planet can boast such a concentration of delicious, authentic, affordable fare as Penang. Dim sum. Tiffin. Banana leaf curry. Laksa and nasi lemak. Seafood, biryani, noodle dishes, tandoori, stir fries, hot pots, barbecued meats, icy desserts, cakes, tropical fruits, and we haven't even started on breakfast. Or Peranakan cuisine. Or the street-side cooking. Where to begin? To best decide, you need Penang in 12 Dishes. Nasi kandar, duck rice, char koay teow, roti canai, and Hokkien mee are among the essential 12 dishes showcased, although this book goes way beyond these.

You'll find info on Penang's beachside bars, advice on buying and eating durian, which hawker centers to visit, and what to eat with your morning coffee.
