Penang showcases trademarked Malay cuisine indebted to Indian, Chinese, and Thai influences. Roti starters are strong, with delicate, stretched-thin sheets of dough stuffed and ready for dipping in a well-balanced curry sauce. If the cold-plate classic gado-gado is ambushed by too much peanut sauce, at least mains—like a piquant mango curry served on a split mango shell—show more restraint.
