New flavors are my favorite discoveries. When at home, I'm drooling over these pictures. When I finally get on the road my mind is on vacation but taste buds are at work. When I get back it's time to start cooking.
When I went to Penang, Malaysia, we stopped at a roadside stand for some coffee. The coffee beans in Malaysia are fried in sugar and butter, not roasted. To add to the deliciousness, milk and sugar are bypassed in favor of sweetened condensed milk. The whole concoction is then poured back and forth to become light and frothy. Enjoyed by the side of the road, on a plastic chair, it was hands down the best coffee I ever had.
