This week on Poh’s Malaysian adventure, she heads north to the ‘Pearl of the Orient’, the island of Penang. A popular tourist destination, this tropical paradise has a diverse cultural background, which is clearly reflected in its reputation as the food capital of Malaysia.
As Poh discovers, Penang is a food lover’s paradise and boasts some of the best and cheapest street fare in Asia. Many Malaysians holiday here just to sample its unique cuisine. When it comes to choice, there’s almost too much. On nearly every street corner, you can see a mix of Malay, Chinese, Nonya and Indian influences, a feast for any culinary eye.
To help her on her journey Poh meets up again with Malaysian chefs Florence Tan and Ismail Ahmad, who have offered to be her culinary guides. With them she explores and cooks some of the ingredients and dishes that make Penang so special.
Poh’s Kitchen will be repeated on ABC2 – Thursday, July 15 at 6:00pm
