a1b89c23b49f4d37502b11253944626dYour impressions about Malaysia will not be complete unless you try exquisite dishes and desserts lovingly prepared for you by experienced cooks and confectioners.

 
Malaysian cuisine is considered to be the one of the most exotic in the world. This can be proved by the fact that the world has opened many restaurants and cafes offering its visitors to try Malaysian food. Malaysian cuisine is represented by all types of cuisines from all over the world, but primarily, it is worth trying local dishes of Asian cuisine such as Malay, Chinese and Indian. A mixture of different cultures in Malaysia has created quite an amazing variety of smell and taste. Malay and Indian cuisine are characterized by all sorts of spices and which is more important - hot spices. Chinese cuisine is not so particularly acute in using hot spices. With regard to European cuisine, it has undergone some changes in Malaysia and formed a new style of cooking – contemporary & fusion. Restaurants in the hotels here are usually represented by Japanese, Korean, French and Italian cuisine. Wonderful seafood dishes are also very popular around here. It seems that it’s just a real paradise for seafood lovers - crabs, mussels, oysters, squid, shrimps, lobsters and trepans (sea cucumber) will not leave indifferent even the most discerning palates. One can definitely say that in this country everybody can find something to one’s own taste.
  
So, what's worth a try? Well, it’s not so easy to recommend dishes that would please everyone, and yet we give it a try and advise a few delicacies that we feel deserve attention.

 

MALAY CUISINE

Satey. Is an originally prepared meet on sticks or Malay style kebabs. Usually it is served with sliced cucumbers, onions and rice. To get maximum enjoyment out of it, we recommend you to try dunking a Satey in a sweet nutty sauce which is served together with it.
4731703d356a442003a990812ef22c2aAyam Rendang - At first, this stewed chicken may seem spicy hot, but if it is served with fresh cooked rice and salad the spicy flavor is much reduced. The recipe for this dish is pretty original; it includes the milk and flesh of a coconut, ginger root, lemon grass and dried red pepper. You might be surprised, but the spicy hot flavor in this dish is created with ginger and not red hot chili, the latter is used only to add the aroma! Beef is often used instead of chicken, making the dish no less tasty and in this case is called as Daging Rendang.

 

CHINESE CUISINE

It is highly recommended to order the first 3 below dishes at the same time by small portions, adding fried rice or plain white rice. Dishes are placed at the center of the table and shared between all participants of the meal.
 
 
Ginger Steam Fish – is very exotic and just divinely delicious steamed fish. Before cooking the fish is marinated in soy sauce and finely chopped ginger root, which gives it an unusual tenderness and a pleasant aroma! Try to ask in advance if the restaurant has the stock of Tilapia fish. This fresh water fish has a special fondness. Dish in this case will be named Ginger Steam Tilapia.
  
Garlic Fried Kai Lan – is the young shoots of Chinese cabbage, very finely cooked in garlic sauce. By the way, this does not mean that it’s garlic hot or smells garlic. It just tastes great with no consequences!  When stewed garlic loses its tart aroma and gives this dish a unique flavor.
  
Kong Po Kai Ting – is thinly sliced pieces of chicken baked in oyster sauce with nuts and dried peppers. Barely noticeable spiciness brings lightness and zest to this dish. 
  
6eb353ddb08112294d1d9854b7fe29a8Steamboat – a steam pot. It is rather the name of the meal than the dish itself. There is a built-in pot in the center of the table with boiling water or broth, various goodies are arranged around it, which sometimes strung on wooden sticks: fish, meat balls, chicken or beef, squid, shrimp, oysters, herbs and more. From all this diversity you can make a wonderful soup. Or choose a vending tidbit and cook it a few minutes in a boiling broth, immediately eat it and repeat the procedure. We really recommend you to try this exotic treat!

Green oblong fruit the size of a football densely covered with wide and sharp spines at the base. The eatables are inside the outer layers of the fruit seed coat with a soft yellow flesh. Ripe durian fruit fall to the ground and don’t smash - spikes act as shock absorbers. But the fruit-pickers have to wear helmets. Safety regulations have power here as in a construction site!
