Things We Ate

Over the course of lunch and dinner at various hawker stalls around Georgetown, Penang:

Vegetable Dumplings (one with green stuff inside; one with radish (?) and carrot)
Curry Mee (noodles in red broth with solidified pigs blood, tofu, bean sprouts and the ubiquitous Malay chili sauce, sambal)
Pork Dumplings and Shrimp Dumplings with brown prawn sauce and sweet chili sauce
Stir-fried Rice Noodles (tossed with cockles, slivers of cured pork, shrimp, bean sprouts, scallion and a hint of chili)
Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce (so simple, but maybe the best item of the day)
Egg Noodles in Gravy with shredded chicken and vegetables
Shaved Ice topped with ice cream, condensed milk, pink syrup, slivers of jelly, corn and black beans (amazingly delicious; except the black beans)

We closed out the evening at a tea shop in China Town near our hotel, watching the rain pour down. Quite the day.
