Hi! I'm taking a friend to watch the MotoGP in Sepang, and we're super excited to visit. This friend hasn't ventured outside India ever, and is curious and open to try new things. I want to understand what is the one dish that truly represents Malaysia, and what should that first dish for lunch be in KL?
Hi Jayanth, there is a short culinary trip available that I would suggest you while you will be in KL. We group of few friend undertook it and it was awesome. Please take a look http://www.tui.in/Holidays-Packages/kl-food-experience.aspx
I'm a fan of malaysian food! Try nasi lemak, chicken rice, banana leaf, char kueytiaw, cendol, butter chicken.
Please try 'Nasi Lemak' ! That is THE food all Malaysians love. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nasi_lemak
The first dish that came to mind is nasi lemak. It's one of the top favorite Malaysian foods for all the people groups in Malaysia. However, there are so many delicious foods that represent Malaysia's multi-ethnic society. Here are a few listed according to their ethnic origins:
1. Malay - satay serve with peanut sauce and ketupat (boiled white rice wrapped in woven palm leaf pouch)
2. Chinese - Hokkien Mee (thick udon-like noodles cooked in thick black soy sauce with vegetables and meat
3. Indian - roti canai with lentil dal curry
Try these out in Kuala Lumpur.
