Ayam Masak Merah literally translates to chicken in red sauce, and is a comforting but flavourful dish, usually either cooked at home to satisfy the hungry mob, or bought as a dish with other items from Malay rice hawkers.


A tasty, welcoming and homely dish, Tau Yew Bak has the honour of being part of the first meal I ever ate in Malaysia, mere hours after landing at Penang Airport. However I have very little recollection of it!
