Penang Boston

Penang, in Chinatown is one of my favorite dinner haunts. It is reasonably spacious(if not too crowded) and the food is exceptional,but reasonably priced. Add a bottle of Sake and life is good.

The food is Malasian with vibes of Indian, Chinese, Thai, Korean and Japanese flavors. My favorites include two appetizers, both featuring Roti(Roti Telur , Roti Kanai) and . The chicken curry dipping sauce is absolutely delicious.

I usually order the Penang dried Chicken curry, which is probably their best entree. Other noteworthy dishes are the Sizzling Seafood platter(which has a milder flavor) and and Masak Lemak with Shrimp. Be sure you order the chicken and coconut flavored rice. The grand finale of of the dinner was the fried ice cream, a paradox in words, but a big winner in taste.

Besides the food, there are other great things I like at Penang. One is the Malaysian hut-style decor and the fact that it is easy to find, at the corner of Washington and Kneeland. Give this place a try, if you are in the area.
