Penang - Pig's brain soup and stuff at Kampung Malabar

This popular night-time street-side food stall in Georgetown's old quarter reminded me of similar places in Bangkok's Chinatown near Thanon Yaowarat. Offering Chiuchow or Teochew-style pork porridge or soups, replete with pig's liver, kidney, heart, brain, intestines and all kinds of delicious offal. The pork broth was rich and tasty, murky from the high-heat boiling.

I opted for the pork offal with rice vermicelli ("bee hoon"/米粉 ) soup - absolutely delicious!
