Best Clam in Penang

Written by Updated ago

I think it's pretty safe to say that Malaysians love to use our grit and teeth when it comes to cracking shells to reveal luscious fresh meat. Crabs, lobsters, prawns, clams, we love them all! As for clams, the crustacean is a great source of nutrients, particularly protein, iron and vitamin B. Their meat is also low in fat and it contains about 125 calories per 3 ounces. Rice wine, butter, chili and so on, there are many ways to elevate our clammy world. Therefore, let's get to the chase for the best ones in Penang!
