Penang Food Trail 6

We tackle another two restaurants today. One for lunch, which is a local coffee shop and another is a restaurant that serves claypot Briyani.

Lunch at a coffee shop behind the office. Nothing too fancy but then again, in Penang, glorious food can be found in the most unusual of places.

The owner makes a good Char Kuay Teow, surprisingly enough.

Foo Yong Egg. Fluffy and good.

I don't really have much to say about veggies as they are always eaten as a source of vitamins.

Belacan Fried Chicken. I can't wax poetic enough about this. Crispy and juicy at the same time.

Fish head curry. This is not the normal KL style curry where it's more santan than anything. It was slightly sourish and deliciously good.

The next was something I have seen in Midvalley and it peaked my interest even if I never really tried it there.

Kapitan Restaurant served something I have tried for the first time, Claypot Briyani Rice. 

The briyani rice was served in little claypots topped with a variety of meats. We chose chicken, which was cooked tandoori style. I can only assume that the briyani was cooked in the claypot prior to being served.

Look at the fluffy yellow rice. Delish.
