Julie, a member of our group who is from Kuala Lumpur, recommended this restaurant and will help select the menu. These are some of her suggestions:
"- Sanur is known for stingray and there are about 3-4 variations. The last time I was there, I had stingray wrapped in lotus leaves which was delicious. I've also had the assam stingray which is spicy and sour a couple of years ago; this was pretty good but I prefer the lotus leaf one.
- Butter shrimp - this is shrimp poached in oil, then fried in butter, garlic, chilli peppers and super fragrant curry leaves - here's a picture of this dish: http://tastesofhome.blogspot.com/2008/10/malaysian-butter-prawns-recipe.html
- Chicken in wine casserole - this sounds quite boring but it's actually known as drunken chicken in Malaysia. The dish is cooked cooked with ginger in rice wine and it comes in a broth that is delicious.
- On Choy in Malaysian Style - On choy is Cantonese for a type of water spinach called kangkung and Malaysian style means it's cooked in belacan, which is dried shrimp paste in chili pepper sauce. This is probably found in every Malaysian restaurant.
- Bak kut teh, which is Hokkien (a Chinese dialect, also known as Fukienese) for pork ribs soup. It's basically pork ribs simmered in a complex broth of herbs and spices (including star anise,cinnamon, cloves, fennel seeds and garlic) for hours. It's one of my favorite soups."
I am not requiring pre-payment for this dinner; PLEASE be considerate and change your RSVP as soon as possible, at least 24 hours before the meetup, if you are signed up and find out that you can't make it. As usual, in order to cover our fees to meetup.com, we will charge members approximately $1 over the food/tax/tip bill at each event.
