Ali Nasi Lemak
Everyone in Penang knows Ali Nasi Lemak. Nestled in George Town’s main financial district, this stall is the reason bankers and analysts leave their air-conditioned sanctuaries to brave the sun and heat. Small servings of coconut rice are doused in generous lashings of spicy sambal and pre-wrapped in banana leaf. The basic anchovies-and-egg combo goes for only 1.80 Malaysian ringgit ($0.45). Additional toppings are available.
