Penang Hill

Penang Hill offers malaysian-singaporean-thai food experience.. i can't remember all of their names though.. i'll just try my best to recall their names.. anyone's free to correct their spelling.. hehe.. :D

hainanese chicken-why the name? i dunno?


tom yum-not the best one i've tasted..i still like wok's tom yum better..
has strong lemongrass flavor..

beef horfun(?)

thai oyster omelet


nasi goreng

i've never been to malaysia but i think ive tried nasi goreng way, way back when we visited singapore..

i heard malaysian cuisine has a lot of spices and usually bombarded with curry..my friend jac said that it might be due to the fact there are many indians in malaysia.. she hates curry.. they went to malaysia a few weeks ago and recalled only eating fish balls since she couldn't take the smell and taste of curry..lol.. i, on the other hand, don't have any problem trying other cuisines.. as long as they are edible! haha.. i have this dream of going to different countries and tasting all their local food..

    How's the price? I've seen it a hundred times but I'm always scared off by the price. I've been to Kuala Lumpur before and I enjoyed the food. Most notable for me are the satay (beef, chicken, etc...).

    Hainanese Chicken is so named for its Chinese roots, Hai Nan province. It's probably a recipe developed by Hai Nan immigrants to Singapore and Malaysia.

    Hor Fun is correct I guess, its the same as our Beef Hofan! :)

    Nice photos!

    uuuu.. penang hill as in you went penang malaysia during the holidays or there is a place having the same name in Philippines?

    philos gave the correct info. hehe.. it is called hainanese chicken rice because it is cooked the 'hainan' way. various groups of chinese have their each special way in cooking, for example hakka people (which my root is) cook a tea rice with peanuts and vege while the 'canto' people has their special way in frying. 'sichuan' people will have their own spicy sauce for food.

    we have curry in malaysia because both the malays and indians like curry stuffs. Malays being 50% of our population, the 2nd race would be chinese and then only indians.

    there are lots of un-spicy food in malaysia actually. will try to blog about it when i'm home in 2 weeks time! hahaha..

    cheers

    Hehe... Not a genius at all, though I had been quite interested in the Hainanese Chicken a coupe of years ago so I asked about it when I went to Singapore, then sorta wiki-ed it to verify the info. :)

    Hey, I hope you do memes, because I just tagged you. :p

    I'm surprised your friend jac had to eat only fishballs in M'sia. It's hard to not find something you'd like to eat, especially in the multi-ethnical melting pot in KL.

    This is a nice post of how M'sian/S'porean food looks outside home ground. :D

  24. Camille  

    June 28, 2008 at 12:50 PM

    al'sera:haha.. yeah..i would have tried everything new to my eyes and palate.. i love to eat.. and im more than willing to try new things. :D

    any comments re the photos? :D
    id also like to see hhow filipino food's served in other countries.

    Filipino food is rather rare in S'pore and M'sia. In fact, the first time I tried Filipino food is during my trip to Makati last year. It was really good tho I can't remember what I had :P

    Regarding the photos,
    - hainanese chick rice: rice looks a lil moist, chicken looks perfect.
    - tom yum: lacks the colors (red and yellow), doesn't look sour enough
    - beef horfun: gravy looks too thin, rice noodle looks thin and narrow
    - thai oyster omelette: looks perfect! Yummy!
    - nasi goreng: rice looks a lil moist. Tip on fried rice... try using overnight/refridgerated rice

    Damn you're making me hungry all over again :P

    i prefer my rice soft n a bit moist.. :D

    yeah the nasi goreng was really good!

    oh.. so you've been here? you're quite a traveller. :D

    It was a business trip. Manila is a really friendly place... tho I'm not a fan of the polluted air.

    I'd be heading to China next month and Bangkok end of year. I'd love to visit Vietnam sometime soon too. Keep a look out for pics and stories of my China trip next month :D
