Ok what should we try? What has been tried. What categories do I want to search for and select as the best in the city? So many options.

Here's how to make a list:


Penang. To try. From the Inquierer: Penang has been dishing Malaysian food for 24 years in cavernous, industrial quarters in Chinatown. Aim for a table across from the open kitchen, and it’s dinner and a show as the busy cooks stre-e-e-t-t-c-c-h the dough for the signature roti and work the flaming woks. Everything is meant to be shared, and the staff is happy to steer patrons to dishes that suit their palates. Just about everyone here starts with roti canai, the crispy-edged flatbread that you tear apart and dunk into a curry sauce studded with potato cubes and pieces of chicken on the bone. For a twist, there’s roti Telur (shown above), where the roti pancake is filled with egg and onion.Penang, 117 N. 10th St. Hours: 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday-Sunday food pic
