For Mother's Day Niel and I took our moms out for lunch along with Niel's brother, Mike. We went to a Malaysian restaurant in Forest Hills called Panang, that Niel and I had been to some time ago. The food was flavorful and creative. The ambiance was equally inviting. There was bamboo in the front when you walked in, bird cages were used as lamp shades, and the air vents were peeking out in the ceiling, which looked very trendy for the area. The menu offered Malaysian, Thai and other Asian dishes. For our appetizer we dined on crispy meat rolls with sweet sauce, seafood spring rolls with spicy sauce, beef and chicken satay with peanut dipping sauce and for our main meals there was spicy shrimp, ginger steamed fish, curried beef, spicy Mango chicken(served in a Mango!) and Pad Thai. Besides drinking water, we also ordered some lime aid(yummo), and Malaysian iced tea. Which seemed very British influenced because there was milk in it. Or maybe the British were influenced by them. Anyway it was also quite good. My favorite of the things I tried were the spicy Mango chicken and ginger steamed fish. I was happy to see the restaurant was busy and that there is such variety in that part of the borough. Attached are pics.
