10 Malaysian Foods You Must Try!

 

Malaysians are passionate about food, there is no doubt to it. Our cuisine, much like our country, is culturally rich, diverse and flavourful. Here are some of the best dishes to try for your next meal or on your next trip to Malaysia!

Nasi Lemak

Frequently referred to as Malaysia’s national dish, Nasi lemak, literally ‘fat rice’, is comprised of coconut rice, sambal, fried anchovies, peanuts, cucumber slices, and hard boiled egg.

Assam Laksa

There are many variations of assam laksa in Malaysia. Rice noodles are served in sour tamarind-based broth peppered with mackerel, cucumber, pineapple, fresh mint, lemongrass and ginger.

Nasi Kerabu

The blue rice in Nasi Kerabu gets its colour from bunga telang, which are crushed and mixed into it. The rice is then topped with fried fish or fried chicken, bean sprouts, prawn crackers, cabbage and other garnishing. It’s traditional to use your hands to eat this Kelantan dish.

Banana Leaf Rice

Rice is served on a banana leaf together with servings of curries, vegetables, pickles and papadom. Eating this dish is definitely an experience in itself.

Hainanese Chicken Rice

This dish has its origin in Hainan, but has been adapted to suit Malaysian taste. Braised, silky chicken served on a bed of rice that has been cooked with chicken broth.

Bak Kut Teh

Literally translates to “meat bone tea”, Bak Kut Teh is a pork rib stew with a salty broth, boiled together with mushrooms, garlic and herbs for a couple of hours, and then eaten together with rice.

Roti Canai

Roti Canai is an Indian-style flatbread usually served with curry and dhal for dipping. It has a lot of varieties such as roti pisang (roti canai with banana) or roti telur (roti canai with egg) which makes it a timeless favourite.

Satay

Satay is chunks of meat (chicken, beef or lamb) marinated with a blend of local spices, skewered and lightly grilled to perfection and served on a stick. You can eat it with cubes of rice, peanut dipping sauce or sambal for an extra kick.

Ice Kacang

Commonly known as ABC, this Malaysian dessert is traditionally made from shaved ice and red beans. However, today it comes in bright colours and with all kinds of fruit and dressings, such as sweet corn, jelly cubes, cendol, peanuts and ice cream. Evaporated and condensed milk, coconut milk, red rose syrup and sarsi syrup are then drizzled over the ice.

Rendang

The dish typically comes in the form of a thick or dry stew and is primarily made up of either chicken, beef or lamb. The tenderness of the meat and the high flavour of its sauce that consists of coconut milk and spices had come from slow-cooking it for a few hours.
