Malaysian food gets a lot of hype for its rich flavours, palate and not to mention varieties. The exotic amalgamation of Malay, Indian and Chinese that includes diverse culinary traditions is what makes Malaysians intensely passionate about their cuisine.
However, the extreme food varieties bring to the table so many options that it can be challenging for any epicure to decide what to eat. So, we have rounded up our top picks for Malaysian food, you’ve got try when in Malaysia.
A must-try Indian-influenced flatbread, Roti Canai is a puffed bread traditionally eaten for breakfast. The flavourful bread is made from soft dough and usually served with hot dhal curry or mixed sambal.
Almost all Malaysians share significant love for this rich rice delight. It’s not just the soaking of rice in dense coconut cream and the tempting aroma of coconut and pandan leaves that make the dish a ubiquitous choice but the way it is wrapped in a banana leaf and presented with roasted peanuts, cucumbers, hard-boiled egg, and fried anchovies makes you want to crave it more and more.
The much loved spicy noodle sauce dish is an authentic mixture of Chinese and Malay cuisine. Thin rice noodles served in spicy coconut-milk curry broth with ambrosial toppings of shredded chicken, shrimp, fried tofu and lime juice make an absolutely filling and satisfying dish.
Moreover, don’t miss out on the sour and fishy variant of Curry Laksa that is Assam Laksa which is equally scrumptious only with the flavour of white flakey fish and tamarind-based soup.
With the dynamic mix of three different cuisines that presents gastronomes with so many alluring choices, it is just natural to get carried away. But it’s also infeasible to savour all the Malaysian food offerings at once.
So, we would recommend you to visit “Mamak Restaurant – Malaysian Roti and Satay” and get the best of Malaysian dishes to satisfy your food love.
