Malay, in your platter!


When in Malaysia, do as the Malaysians do and that is enjoy the food. Malaysians love eating and also like serving the full scope of Malaysian flavors to its visitors. Tourism Malaysia invites all to taste the multicultural aspects of Malaysia through its cuisines.
Travel to Malaysia and let your taste buds get enticed to the spices, aromatic herbs and roots, which are all the main ingredients found in the making of a Malaysian cuisine. The food is usually eaten in a banana leaf and the staple diet is rice - nasi lemak: rice steamed with coconut milk, which gives it a rich fragrance and is served with fried anchovies, peanuts, sliced cucumber, hard boiled eggs and a spicy chili paste known as sambal. In Malaysia one can enjoy the dynamic mixture of Malay, Chinese, and Indian cuisines, which are just a few of the popular influencing flavors. The Stir-Fry Savory Clams with Salted Soya Beans is another mouth-watering dish, which can be a good starter to start the luncheon with.
The main course can be enjoyed with a platter that includes the Chili Pan Mee, a freshly cooked noodles preparation, which includes a handful of ingredients like minced pork, fried garlic, a runny half poached egg, and a sprinkle of green onions. The signature dried flaky chili sauce makes this chili pan mee one of the great Malaysian dishes, which is a must have on the gourmet list. One can also choose to order the Char kuay teow, a wonderful mixture of stir fried rice noodles along with a choice of meat or seafood and flavored with dark soy sauce.  This can be well complimented with Grilled Stingray, a grilled fish preparation, which is wrapped in a banana leaf with a combination of spices, a pure connoisseur’s delight.
Other interesting Malaysian cuisines on the must taste list are: Keropok Lekor, Nasi Goreng Kerabu, Laksam, Roti Canai, Char Kuay Teow and Pulau Duyong, among others. So, come visit the tropical island and get a taste of its ethnic cuisine.
