Simple rice fried in a hot wok with garnishings of belacan(shrimp paste), kiam hu (dried salted fish), egg, and prawns makes a cheap satisfying lunch. The trick to good fried rice is to leave the rice overnight in the fridge so it is not soggy.
Where to eat it? I like the fried rice in the corner coffee shop in Pulau Tikus during lunch time.
There are a lot of Malay food stalls in Penang. When I go there I like to order this, Pataya Fried Rice. It is basically fried rice wrapped in an omelet served ith a side dish of fried chicken. Wash down with a glass of iced tea.
