My habit of eating well while seizing the day. Here's a showcase of small sampling of some of the many yummy, exotic and exciting Malaysian cuisine that I was able to savor. Enjoy!
There were others as well; but because I didn't have my camera on me so I was not able to take pictures and they include; Nasi Lemak [rice cooked in santan served with anchovies, squid, eggs, cucumber and sambal (chili paste)], the famous mamak Maggi Mee Goreng [instant fried noodles perfected by the indian-mamaks...best eaten for supper ~ after a night out drinking], Roti Canai [a kind of pancake prepared with wheat flour, eggs, ghee/butter, and served hot with curry or dhal], Satay [Marinated beef or chicken pieces in skewers are barbecued over charcoal and eaten after dipping into a sweet and spicy peanut sauce. It can also be served with ketupat (rice cubes wrapped in palm leaves) and cucumber], Assam Laksa [A special from Penang consisting of thick rice noodles in a spicy and sour fish-based soup with pineapple, cucumber and onions] Ice Kacang [A colourful concoction of jelly cubes, red beans, creamed corn and peanuts topped with shaved ice, rose strup and evaporated milk], Cendol [Shaved ice, coconut milk, brown sugar/gula melaka and the stringy greenish strands are made from green bean flour mixed with pandan/screwpine leaves], Yong Tau Foo [Fish paste stuffed into items like smooth taufoo, ladies fingers, fried taufoo, chillies or sliced brinjals/eggplants] and many more...
The pictures above may not do justice to the real taste of Malaysian food - but this shows you my beloved country's famous cuisines. When opportunity arises, try it! A word of caution though? Not many can stomach the fierce mixture of greasy, spicy, and strong tasting ingredients found in most Malaysian dishes. But it'll be worth it. Trust me?
