Good Food Guide - - Central Otago -

The orig­i­nal Madam Woo – there are now five around the coun­try tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from tra­di­tional Malaysian street food – delivers au­then­tic, well-bal­anced flavours in a buzzy set­ting. You can’t go past the pop­u­lar hawker rolls with fresh, crunchy, punchy flavours wrapped in crisp but­tery roti, or the vividly coloured Malaysian spiced chicken salad, zingy with lime, peanut and chilli. The Kum Heong-style soft-shell crab is a dish you will want to eat again, with its softly spiced com­bi­na­tion of gin­ger, salty dried prawns and crisp curry leaves; as is the fra­grant sticky, wob­bly stir-fried pork belly cubes piled with greens and golden co­rian­der seed crumbs. Choose an Asian­in­spired cock­tail or from a great se­lec­tion of brews and wines that will com­ple­ment the more spicy el­e­ments of your meal.
