I've only had Malaysian once - at Nyonya in NYC, and that was years ago. The dish I remember most vividly was squid with plum sauce, which was pretty damn tasty.
I doubt Penang - which advertises itself as "Pan-Asian" - will be on par with big city eats (even tho we have a fantastic Sichuan place in town on par with any Sichuan food I've had elsewhere if not better), but I'd like to hear from youz Malaysian experts what are some of the 'typical' dishes by which to judge the place.
Is Malaysian food spicy (I hope so)?
They apparently have about 260 dishes - some of them are Thai, sushi, and other pan-BS, and I am worried that by the time I've read thru the menu, the rest of my party will likely have finished eating '-)
Merci, as always.
