Yummy Bak Moi...

I didn't have dinner ready two nights ago. So...we went 'hunting' for food. We came across this stall by the road-side. Yes, we have stalls by the road side and they sell food. If you are a Malaysian, you will know what I'm talking about.
This is what we had for dinner. This one with rice, it is Bak Moi said in our Hokkien dialect. Translated, bak is pork and moi is porridge.

This is coarse rice noodles (chor bee hoon) served with minced pork and pig's offals. Look closely the piece near the chopsticks is pig's brain. Yes! pig's brain. The piece in the center, that is pig's kidney, sliced. There is also the pig's intestine, liver and minced pork. Urghhhh...for those who are not used to eating pig's offals. It tastes good actually. The only thing to worry is your cholesterol level.
If you are a Malaysian and intend to try this, this stall is located on the street, Kampung Malabar, Penang. This is by far, the best bak moi I've tasted. It is the stock that is the catch. We enjoyed every morsel of it and not a drop of the stock is left! I would think most uses lots of MSG but not this stall. I didn't feel real thirsty after the eating. Even if MSG is used, it is minimal unlike others who sells such stuff. By the way, the man cooking, he is the third generation manning the stall.
