Daily highlight #30: elegant as lady fingers - Restaurant: Penang

You've had them fried, pickled, and stewed. Nothing surprises you anymore. But have you try them sauteed with spicy Malaysian belacan (shrimp paste sauce)? A quick stir fry in a super heated wok with this umami-rich sauce takes this lowly, slimy vegetable to a level of elegance that is deserving of its Southeast Asian name of "lady finger."
