Penang: "OPEN MALAYSIAN KITCHEN" Penang Tip by heywinks

Penang, Boston: 4 reviews and 4 photos

PENANG, for Malaysian/Asian food
the interior of the restaurant has a very Asian feel to it and it's always really crowded here. there's usually a wait to get in but it's well worth it! It's an open kitchen style and what's great about that is when they make the roti canai, you can see them actually flipping the dough around (kind of like making a pizza but different).
The price is comparable to other restaurants in Chinatown and averages about $9-10 for an entree.
Open daily 11:30am-11:30pm. Weekends until midnight.

Favorite Dish: I love the roti canai (like nan flat bread dipped in curry), the mango chicken (served in a cut into mango), the buddhist yam pot, and the peanut pancake dessert! Everything is the menu is very good so whatever you order it's going to be great!
