The land of nasi lemak, cheese naan, and char kuey teow – must order the teh tarik, teh o ais limau and kopi peng too!
This blog is here to present food here as it is. The local, the Western, the Japanese, the Korean, the Thai, the fusions – the never ending selections in Malaysia.
In case you hadn’t known, the local food scene here are usually attributed to the three major cultures from the Malays, the Chinese, and the Indians, who have lived together for more than half a century. Of course, we cannot miss out another major local food influence namely the Nyonya cuisine.
Still, there are wayyyy too many cultures from the different indigenous peoples here, which also contribute to our local cuisines, which I cannot say I am very clear of myself.
Sidetrack: I do occasionally reminisce the ulam and durian tempoyak I had with some Ibanese friends back in 2017.
Anyway, as a disclaimer, I will not be extensively or particularly aiming to cover all the cuisines here. What I mean by presenting ‘food here as it is’ is that I will be exploring the different neighbourhoods and what they have to offer – soooo, not just the popular ones. Unsurprisingly, I will visit those in a convenient distance range (unless I happen to be on a travel).
Haha, so that’s it. Hope you’ll like what you read!
