ABOUT THIS MENU
Malaysia is famous for its good food, especially its hawker food. The best food in Malaysia is available on the street, where locals eat. You will see stalls and carts everywhere – at markets, back lanes, or along the highway.
Char Koay Teow is arguably Malaysian’s favourite noodle.Even tourists enjoy this food, as it has made it to Lonely Planet Ultimate Eatlist in 2019.
Literally translated to ‘Fried Flat-rice Noodles’, this dish is only considered by Malaysian food connoisseur to be authentic if its made with lard and fry on intense high-heat.
Another very popular street food is satay. The meat is marinated with spices, skewed into bamboo stickers, grilled on charcoal, and then dipped in sweet peanut sauce.
A dish that is unique to Malaysia is Rojak, a mixed vegetable and fruit salad with shrimp paste, peanuts, and sesame seeds dressing. So popular is this dish that the word ‘rojak’ is also used to describe someone of mixed heritage.
