- La Zha Mee
La Zha Mee means “dirty noodles” in Cantonese. However, there is nothing dirty about this dish. It just happened that the place where the noodles originated many years ago was nearby the smelliest place in the Lukut. Now many restaurants in Penang offer this dish and tourists come over to taste the “dirty noodles.”
- Ikan Bakar
In literal translation, Ikan bakar means “burned fish.” Like the otak otak, Ikan bakar also came from Indonesia but has become a popular dish in Malaysia, too. Ikan bakar is grilled fish with banana leaves served with lots of spice paste or sambal.
Indeed, Penang is a home of many seafood dishes. It comes as no surprise given that Penang is known for its seaside location. But the influences from other cuisines are also evident.
