Mooncakes and Sour Pork--a few foods we've tried recently. We're not fans of either, honestly, though they are rather picturesque.
I'm all for living as much like a local as possible when living abroad...and yet, with my limited kitchen tools and appliances and limited access to ingredients, I'll admit that I started making a list of the foods I want to eat as soon as I land in Malaysia for a visit. My mom has a fully-outfitted kitchen. Between our cooking skills and knowledge of the best restaurants in my hometown, just about any food I could dream up is a possibility when I get there.
With that said, here's our order for when we arrive:
Pulled BBQ pork sandwiches (I don't even normally eat these, but I've been craving them for months)
Puri with potato curry
Roti telur bawang
Chicken Butter Masala with Naan Bread
Homemade mint chocolate cookies.
Tortilla chips with guacamole and salsa and everything on them.
Fresh fruit juice
A hamburger (Angel's pick, I don't need one)
Chicken curry and rice
My Mom's brisket with gravy and mashed potatoes
PSA: I'm en-route to Malaysia right now and hope to spend the next week doing some excessive eating.
