Must try food in Malaysia ❤

I'm sure everyone loves food, ain't it? And speaking about food, Malaysia is literally the paradise of food! I always love to go on a food hunt and seek for the most delicious store for that particular food. Despite it being the same food, different people could cook a different taste to it, and you'll never get bored of trying it all!

Must try food in Malaysia ❤

Here are a list of some food that is worth trying if you're coming to Malaysia.

1. Char Kway Teow

It is a popular noodle dish in Malaysia and is considered a national favourite in Malaysia. This dish is commonly stir-fried with egg, slices of Chinese sausage, whole prawns, bean sprouts, chopped Chinese chives and deshelled blood cockles.

2. Nasi Lemak

It is a fragrant rice dish cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaf. It is commonly found in Malaysia and is considered the national dish. Nasi lemak is usually served for breakfast, however, because of its versatility in being able to be served in a variety of manners, it is now served and eaten any time of the day. It is commonly served anchovies, peanuts, boiled egg, cucumber and traditional chili paste.

3. Popiah

This is my favourite dish! Popiah is a Fujian/Teochew style fresh spring roll that is commonly found in Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia. The popiah skin is a soft, thin paper-like crepe or pancake made from wheat flour. The filling is mainly finely grated and steamed turnip and bangkuang. It can also be cooked with bean sprouts or lettuce leaves.

4. Asam Laksa

It is a sour, fish and tamarind-based soup. It is mainly served with shredded fish and finely sliced cucumber, onions, red chillies, pineapple, lettuce, daun kesum (laksa mint) and pink bunga kantan (torch ginger). It is served with either thick rice noodles or thin rice noodles and topped off with "hae ko" - a thick sweet shrimp paste.

5. Ais Kacang (aka ABC - Ais Batu Campur)

Ais Kacang literally means ice beans, whereas ABC means mixed ice. It is a common Malaysian dessert that can be found at many hawker centres, coffee shops and food courts. In Malaysia, almost all Ais Kacang now contains attap chee (palm seed), nata de coco, cendol, sweet corn, red bean and cincau (grass jelly).

Did any of these made you hungry? 😜 Hope you enjoyed reading it! :)

  • Oh no... Could not eat any of that.

    There are two things I really don't like. Eggs and seafood. Too much of either makes me vomit. I can only stand fish like cod, salmon, tuna. Prawns, mussels, etc I cannot do.

    Sorry, but pass for me!

  • I drooled hahaha. I always grew up with food and gourmet meals, my dad being in the food business. And I was never afraid to try anything new and I'm still not! This has helped me so much bc I get to try the most DELISH food😍! Asian food is a fav but I feel like Americans only scratch the surface and stick with Chinese food. But there's vast world with SO many flavors! Thai food is also great like Malaysian food. so much flavor!!😍😍 thanks so much for this take I'm gonna try to get my hands on some of these ☺️

    • The ice are actually poured with brown sugar (better known as gula melaka in Malaysia), syrup and canned corn's juice. :)

  • a lot of these remind me of filipino food - except prettier and maybe tastier, lol
