How to make a Malaysian Quilt: Bangsar Pasar Malam epilogue

Having spent the last 3 posts looking at food when I had nothing in my pantry was a test of how far I could stand against the growling of my empty stomach. I close this series with a collage of whatelse you can find/buy at the market. Choong or Ba Chang (glutinous rice wrapped in lotus leaves), Roast Duck, Siew Mai and Fishballs in a bamboo steamer and dried anchovies. Yes, I'm hungry again and deciding what to post tomorrow.

(the Bangsar Pasar Malam series is dedicated to Kris in that little Hungarian Town. Semoga semuanya selamat. Sehingga pulang ke pangkuan tanahair.)

Your're right about the markets Grant. The senses definately get their money's worth. Every market is different.

Oh Cynthia! If only we had 'scratch-n-sniff' pages... The Roast Duck was divine (my 2 friends and me consumed a whole one!)

We pernah jumpa ke Kris? And with long hair! My, my, that must've been years ago. It's a small world after all. ;) (and I'm bald now!)

I'd love to try the rice in lotus leaves - do you eat those as well or is it just the packaging?

I felt the same when I saw your apple pie Sam!

Bob, the leaves are just wrapping. These ones have rice and a spicy shrimp stuffing. Usually, it's stuffed with mushrooms and chicken or pork. Different varieties. There's a sweet one too. I love these!

Yum-O is the word!
