Kangkung Sotong (Water Convolvulus & Cuttlefish)

While visiting Penang Island (an island located about 400 miles north of Kuala Lumpur), my friend brought me to Gurney Drive for dinner. Gurney Drive has a big hawker food court that serves all kind of delicious Penang delicacies.

I ordered this 'Kangkung Sotong'. It is a combination of blanched water convolvulus (kangkung) and cuttlefish (sotong) served with a spicy, sour and sweet sauce topped with ground peanuts. Although 'Kangkung Sotong' can be found in many parts of Malaysia, I hardly eat them. But on seeing these cuttlefish, I just had the craving for it. And the one that I ordered was really tasty! Yum, yum! If you sighted any hawker stall in Malaysia where cuttlefish and water convolvulus are being displayed together, make sure you try it out. Trust me, you will have no regrets!

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
