Malaysian Chinatown Favourites (Pork)


Malaysia’s Chinatown is located at Petaling Street, the heart of Kuala Lumpur. The Chinese makes a significant population in Malaysia and has integrated into the Malaysian culture for at least three generations.

This menu features fusion Chinese-Malaysian dishes that are only available in Malaysia. Our Wantan Noodles is different – it’s a ‘dry’ version flavoured with various sauces. The noodle is served with dumplings in soup and caramelised roast pork known as Char Siew. This combo – noodles, dumplings in soup, and roast pork – is ranked at #299 on Lonely Planet Ultimate Eatlist in 2019.

At a busy street at Petaling Street, you can find a famous stall called Koon Kee which serve this type of noodle. On the same street, you can find a unique local dessert: fried sweet potatoes and coconut balls. The Chinese makes use of local ingredients such as coconut flakes to create a delicious fusion dessert.

We also have Lor Bak Or Ngo Hiang, a popular fried snack, made from five-spice, beancurd, and pork. Wash all the food down with a glass of cold lime juice with dried salted plum that you can find only in Malaysia and Singapore.


In this menu, you will learn to make:

  1. Wantan Noodles with Pork Dumplings
  2. BBQ Char Siew Pork (Roasted Caramel Pork)
  3. Lor Bak (Five-Spice Fried Meat Rolls)
  4. Fried Sweet Potato & Coconut Balls
  5. Limau Asam Boi (Calamansi Lime Juice with Sour Plum)

You will also learn how to roll Lor Bak with thin beancurd sheets made from soya milk and knead sweet potato-coconut dough for our dessert.
