array of mouth-watering food.

rambutan, jackfruit, star fruit, banana, pineapple, mango, papaya, guava and more. These fruits are
mostly served after meals in place of desserts and sometimes are cooked and added into dishes
as ingredients.

Mouth-watering Malay Delicacies
Malay cuisine is as interesting and extraordinary as its people. The culinary fare of the Malay community orginates
from a diverse historical heritage. Influences from the Indonesian, Indian, Thai, Arabic and Chinese cooking styles have
created a culinary legacy that is both distinct and exotic.

Most Malays love pungent food. To spice up any
Malay meal, many would opt for a dollop of

There are many types of sambal, the most famous
being the ubiquitous sambal belacan. Made of
dried, fermented shrimp, belacan is an integral
ingredient in Malay dishes and most Malaysian
dishes for the matter. When uncooked, the smell
of belacan may be unappealing, but locals swear

Each state has its own specialty laksa.

The name laksa is derived from a Sanskrit word, lakhsa, which means a lot. It
refers to the many ingredients, and effor t, put into making this rich, delicious
noodle dish. In general, there are two types of laksa - assam laksa, a tangy
soup and curr y laksa, its thicker, creamier counterpar t. There are significant
differences between the Chinese, Peranakan and Malay laksa but the base
and essence are the same. Ingredients for laksa consist mainly of fish, usually
mackerel or prawns, cooked with a myriad of aromatic herbs and spices.
Laksa is accompanied by other condiments and garnishing such as shredded
cucumber, pineapple, bean sprouts or mint leaves. Satay is barbequed and served outdoors.

Each region or state has its own signature laksa. The most famous of course
is the Penang assam laksa, a sweet-sour hawker dish popular across Malaysia.
The least soupy of all the variants of laksa is probably laksa Johor, which is
traditionally eaten with hands. Laksam is Kelantans specialty, made from rice
flour and eaten with a thick fish gravy cooked with coconut milk. Laksa Sarawak
is slightly different as it uses belacan rather than fish and a host of other herbs
and spices.

Satay is probably Malaysias most famous contribution to the culinary world.
From San Francisco to Melbourne, the appetite-stirring aroma of grilled
Malaysian satay permeates. It is even one of the main menus served on
Malaysia Airlines, the national carrier. Satay, also spelled sate, are small pieces
of meat (either marinated chicken, beef or mutton) skewered on sticks and
barbecued over a charcoal fire. It is then brushed with oil mixed with honey
and other spices. Satay is served with cucumber wedges, onions and rice cakes
called ketupat or nasi himpit. What makes satay so special though, is the spicy Satay is a popular Malay fare known

Satay stalls are usually open after the sun has set and they are found in most
cities and towns. The most talked-about satay in Malaysia is perhaps satay
Kajang. There are also other variants of satay available, like satay celup in
Melaka. Satay celup refers to raw or semi-boiled seafood on skewers, akin to
steamboat or locally known as lok-lok. As its name suggests, one must celup or
dunk it in a boiling pot of water before eating it with a special sauce.

Pengat Pisang
Pengat is a local desser t that is made from tropical fruits cooked in coconut
milk and palm sugar. There is a whole range of pengat available in Malaysia,
such as pengat durian (a fruit with a thorny outer skin but sweet creamy
flesh), pengat ubi (tapioca), pengat pisang (banana), pengat jagung (sweet
corn), pengat sago and the list goes on. Pengat pisang is a pretty simple
desser t to make and it tastes delicious. Not too rich, not too sweet but an
excellent conclusion to a satisfying meal.

Tantalising Chinese Cuisine
Chinese cuisine is widely popular in Malaysia. The appeal of Chinese food is due to its fresh ingredients, variety of
cooking styles and easy availability. Aside from the influence of local cooking methods, the inherited culinary traditions
of the Cantonese, Szechuan, Hokkien, Hakka, Teochew and Hainanese make Malaysian Chinese food one of the most
tantalising and diverse.

Banana Leaf Rice

A staple South Indian fare, the banana leaf rice features a mound of steaming plain rice with a
generous amount of spicy curry and accompanied by an assor tment of delicious side dishes, all
served on a banana leaf. Papadum, or crispy lentil crackers, yoghur t and pickles complete the

grain of rice is infused with spices, it is first fried with ghee and spices such as cinnamon, ginger,
Briyani Rice saffron and garlic. Then it is cooked with meat stock and pieces of either chicken, mutton or
fish, and sometimes eggs. Although it is delicious just as it is, briyani rice is served with side
dishes such as curries or gravies, salads, pickles and papadum. This flavourful cuisine has also
made its way into the Malay culture, so much so that nowadays, it is the main menu served
during weddings and special occasions.

Nasi Kandar
Your visit to the Mamak restaurant would not be complete without trying the nasi kandar.
This signature Mamak fare originates from Penang. In the olden days, vendors used to balance
or kandar steel containers on their shoulders with a wooden bar while they walked around to
sell their food. Hence the name, nasi kandar.

Nasi kandar is typically plain rice served with a variety of curries and side dishes, anything
you fancy. Expect a plateful of rice accompanied by your choice of flavoursome deep-fried
chicken, cubed spleen, beef, squid, prawns or fish roe and a mixture of curries and other sauces.
Vegetable side dishes such as brinjal, ladies fingers, bitter gourd or cabbage salad are also
available. The dish is made complete with pickles and papadum.

Itik Teem

Itik Teem
Itik teem is basically a salted vegetable and duck stew. Duck meat is cooked with

recipe, this dish is made of pork legs or spare ribs and cooked with spices such as
black pepper and star anise. Sherry or Snow Pear Wine is added to give it an extra

Itik teem is sometimes regarded as Nyonya fare but when it comes to Melakas
cuisines, no one can really tell for sure as some dishes transcend cultural borders.
Possessing a milder taste, itik teem is definitely a refreshing break from the regular
hot and fiery Malaysian Por tuguese fare. It is a special dish for both cultures,
normally served during Chinese New Year reunion dinners in the Peranakan
household, and Christmas in the Malaysian Por tuguese home.

Chicken Vindaloo

Chicken Vindaloo
In the authentic Por tuguese recipe, the main ingredient is pork, cooked with red
wine and garlic. Over time, the recipe has been modified to suit local taste by
substituting the pork with chicken, lamb or mutton. More ingredients and spices
such as ginger, coriander, paprika and cumin are added, along with a potent amount
of chillies. Vindaloo is very popular among Malaysians.

They are also in fact, a staple feature in Indian restaurants all over the world. This
dish is strongly associated with Indian cuisine, par ticularly Goan, as Goa was a
Por tuguese colony.

Manok Pansoh

Manok Pansoh
The Ibanese manok pansoh or bamboo chicken is a dish made from pieces
of chicken stuffed into a hallowed bamboo together with other ingredients
such as mushrooms, lemongrass and tapioca leaves. It is cooked with rice wine
(optional) over an open fire. This healthy and natural way of cooking helps
to retain all the flavours and natural goodness of the meat, while infusing the
gravy with the delicate aroma of lemongrass and bamboo.

Mee Kolok
Most of the noodle dishes in Sarawak such as laksa and mee kolok were first
introduced by the Chinese. Resembling the popular dry wantan noodle, mee
kolok features blanched dry egg noodles which look like ramen. It is tossed in
lard and light soy sauce and topped with shredded meat, par ticularly pork, or
chicken for a halal fare. It can be savoured at any time of the day.

Mee Kolok Umai

Umai is a traditional Melanau dish. This tangy, savoury salad consists of raw
fish, finely sliced onions and chilli, sprinkled with black pepper, salt and lime or
tamarind juice. It is usually eaten with sago pearls or toasted sago. Traditionally,
the Melanau fishermen of Sarawak take umai out to sea as their lunch.
But nowadays, one can easily find this dish in local restaurants or hotels in
