Anthony Bourdain and I at Line Clear Nasi Kandar, Penang. It was a dream comes true to have “met” an idol, a hero, and a legend. Thanks to No Reservations for coming to Penang and I can’t wait to see the episode.
Penang Assam Laksa is ranked #7 as CNN World’s Most Delicious Foods. This is my homemade Penang Assam Laksa, a dish that I grew up eating. I have two Assam Laksa recipes here and here.

Lychee is a topical/sub-tropical fruit mostly found in Asia. The flesh of lychee is sweet, juicy, with a refreshing fruity note. Lychee is rich in vitamin C.
