Little India in Penang

The first stop in Penang after getting off a seemingly endless series of flights from Europe was Little India..... Ok ok we actually first stopped at That Little Wine Bar, a lovely place hidden amongst large old colonial buildings in Georgetown. The wine list was extensive and the waiters were friendly, exactly what I needed!

Tandoori Chicken at Kapitan

Next was Kapitan, an institution in Penang open
24hours a day and serving food cooked fresh in front of you. We ordered the tandoori chicken and a Milo ice, both were delicious and came to under €3!

If you have not heard of Milo, and I fear many of my European friends have not, it is a must try! A chocolate power drink that can be served hot or cold... or in some cases just eaten straight from the tin ;)

A few days later it was time to go on a sari hunt! So after a breakfast filled of unknown tasty items recommend to me by a friend we hit the shops of Little India.  If you like me are not a connoisseur in Indian cuisine then the wait staff are very happy to recommend traditional dishes.

The selection of saris, kurtis and jewellery was unparalleled to anywhere I have been before. As a westerner its worth bearing in mind that prices are not fixed in many of these shops and you will have to bargain.
