Calicut Paragon, Dubai

Calicut Paragon was recommended to me right here on Tumblr in my comments section, although I can’t figure out by who anymore. Thanks and apologies to whoever it was who gave me the tip!

Specializing in South Indian seafood, the joint had long lines but they moved rather quickly. We only had to wait about 20 minutes even though we arrived at 9:30pm, prime time for dinner in Dubai. Here’s a look…

The house specialty, grilled garlic and chilli Tawa fish…

Sesame cauliflower, which was incredible…

Shrimp in coconut curry with tarragon, if I remember correctly…

Mutton curry…

Masala fried chicken, bone-in, with pickled onion…

And all the fresh baked nan you could eat…

This whole meal, with two large bottles of water, was only $27!

Roti Jala

I’ve eaten differet kinds of roti all over the world, but had never even heard of Malaysian roti jala until I hit Penang. I found it for the first time at the breakfast buffet at the Shangri-La Rasa Sayang where I was staying…

"Jala" means "net", which you realize is the perfect name for this flat bread once you get a glimpse of what it looks like…

image

Roti Jala has a crepe-like texture made by drizzling a thick batter on a hot grill into these doily-esque shapes…

image

This Malaysian delicacy is savory however, typically served with curries and chutneys, as you can see here…

Mutsumi cooked up a number of Singaporean and Malaysian dishes last night at one of our “Taste of Our Travels” dinners, where we  use recipes and ingredients we bring back from the countries we visited. She surprised even me by preparing an incredible take on Hainanese Curry Rice later in the meal!!
