Tonight was another adventure in new restaurants, and this time even new cuisine. I went to Peninsula for Malaysian food.

The only disappointing part of the meal was the reisling I ordered. Which was the cheapest on the menu, so not all that surprising. For an appetizer I had roti telur, a crispy Indian style pancake filled with eggs, onions & bell peppers. Served with spicy curry chicken & potato dipping sauce. It was light and delightful, if a little larger than I was expecting.

And then I ordered the Peninsula Char Kway Teow, Malaysian stir fried flat rice noodles with shrimp, squid, bean sprouts, & eggs in soy chili paste. My first hint that it would be good was when the waitress got visibly excited and said it was her favorite noodle dish. And then when she was bringing it to me, a couple that had just been seated stopped her to ask what it was because it smelled amazing. And then said "I want what she's having" when they ordered. And the other two people sitting near me asked what it was as well.

Looking at their orders of satay and egg rolls also looked really good. That being said, I'm a fan of the spicy, but it looked like they had non-spicy as well for my friends who are not all about the spice.

I have no left overs. I was very hungry when I sat down and it was too good to even stop eating. I will so be going back to this place.

Have I mentioned I love living off of Eat Street? Yum.

Next places I need to try are also down at that end of Nicollet, Harry Singh's Caribbean, and Christos for Greek.

ETA: I have since found out that this not a place to bring your friends who have shellfish allergies. They are not good about keeping things separate enough for their safety. Still, the food is tasty.
