pengat pisang

This country never ceases to amaze me. The variety of food we have is innumerable and working in Bukit Bintang has enabled me to sample delicacies i've never even heard of before!

Well today we decided to check out a new Malay/Indonesian joint which recently opened in one of the back streets. And as we were picking our dishes i noticed this large tub with stuff floating in it. Upon further inspection, my colleague exclaimed that it was "pengat pisang".

Basically what it is, is sliced bananas stirred with milk and gula Melaka. It looks like bubur caca only not. And not everyone Malay or otherwise can make a good pengat pisang.

Well the bowl we shared was awesome! I'm not one who usually eats questionable looking dishes but this was the bomb!
