I've still got what it takes to satisfy your hunger

Food porn**, Malaysia edition:

Pan Mee, Restoran Kin Kin Kuala Lumpur. Delicious soup with noodles, egg, meat with crispy and soft textures--and plenty of chili. As I left the manager politely told me I ate it wrong--you're supposed to keep the broth separate.  It was still good.

Bean paste cakes, Kedai Sin Hua Bee Kuala Lumpur. Tasty--for a dessert made from beans that aren't cocoa.

Stingray asam pedas, Asam Pedas Pak Man Melaka. My driver from the bus station to hotel told me to try this local specialty and was I glad. Rich stew, very tasty and spicy--too spicy, in fact, for the woman behind the counter, and she was surprised I liked it. This made me like it even more :)

Pandan kaya puff, Jonkor Street Melaka. Flaky pastry with just the right amount of filling and sweetness--was an excellent snack when I was flagging.

Roast chicken meal and strawberry float, Kenny Rogers Roasters Ipoh. Allegedly there's still one of these in The States (Ontario California) but I hadn't seen a KRR in decades. Meanwhile there are 87 of them out here so imma call it Malaysian cuisine.

Skewered snacks, Lok Lok street cart George Town. Lots of food on sticks plus sauces for cheap--how can you go wrong?

Tandoori chicken and garlic cheese naan, Restoran Kapitan George Town. George Town has a bustling Little India, so of course it has excellent and affordable Indian restaurants--very helpful, as Malaysia was the most expensive of SE Asian countries I've visited thus far.

Steamed rice and soy sauce chicken, Tai Tong Restaurant, George Town. My last dinner in Malaysia and it was lovely--simple and flavorful. A nice way to say goodbye.

**Which may be the only kind of porn Malaysia would allow. Not that I went looking for it, of course of course.
