I am going to start document down Penang specialties foods and drinks which available only in Penang island and mainlands. This discoveries are there since before our independence days. The first that goes to the list is BADAM MILK or better known as Almond Milk.
Located at the famous Kapitan Tandoori restaurant at Chulia Street, you may notice a special trishaw parked by the restaurant.
Normally a restaurant has their own bar that prepares all the drinks. This one they dedicate the trishaw for badam milk and fresh milks. Many of the regular patrons or tourist just pop by and drink them while standing.
Masala Milk with spices
Badam Milk with cashew nuts and raisins boiled with slow fire.
Pulled milk to cool off the milk to warm temperature so that it is more easy to drink.
Professional milk puller at work.
There’s a layer of skins above the milk where the milk puller will scoop a bit and placed on the glass after the tea is pulled.
The milk got taste of ginger, spices like anise seeds, raisins and raw almonds. It is quite thick and filling.
Each glass cost RM2.50 and only available at night.
