Malaysian Restaurant "Penang"

Last weekend, our friends took us out to a Malaysian restaurant. We never had Malaysian food before. Therefore, we were looking forward to it. The name of the restaurant is "Penang". It is located in downtown Bethesda, a very nice area. We ordered the following items. The food is awesome there. We definitely will go back to this restaurant in the near future.

This is what the restaurant looks like inside.

For appetizer, we had Roti Canai. It's a Malaysian crispy, non-greasy, Indian sytle pancake. This dish was served with curry chicken as a dipping sauce. I can eat this all day long.

Next, we had steamed stripe bass with tofu, salted cabbage and mushroom. This is Teo Chow cooking Style. The fish was fresh, and yummy.

And then we ordered Hainanese chicken (Hai Nan Ji). This steamed chicken served with special soy sauce and hot sauce. It's simply delicuous.

And last, but not least we had this dish that everyone has been raving about. It's called Penang Char Kway Teo. This is Penang's famous stir fried flat noodles with fresh shrimps and bean sprouts, eggs, soy sauce and chili paste. It's similiar to Thai's Pathai, but has more smoky flavor from the high flames wok.

Over all, we are very happy with the food. We came to the restaurant a little bit early so we can get a parking space in the front of the restaurant. I would definitely recommend this restaurants to my friends.

I love this restaurant! One of my favorite dishes is a meal served in a taro root bowl (I think I got that right) and the shaved ice dessert is so good. :)

I love anything with Taro root in it. I did not try he shaved ice dessert yet. Maybe I will next time. Thank you for pointing that out Janice.
