“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.” – George Bernard Shaw
As Malaysian, we all definitely can agree on one thing that binds us together and that is food. Nasi lemak, roti canai, wantan mee, banana leaf meal, kuih-muih, bah kut teh and much other variety of food is accessible almost anywhere in Malaysia. That’s the beauty of our beautiful homeland. Ask all of your friends and family that travelled or is residing in another country and they’ll tell you the first thing about Malaysia that they miss is the food. Nothing like a hot cup of teh tarik during tea time and a spicy sambal of nasi lemak for supper.
I remember a moment where within two days I was in Melbourne, Australia, I was already craving for bah kut teh and my missing chilli padi. Took me only a couple of days to realize how much I took Malaysian food for granted. Well, it was only a vacation and shortly I was back to my Malaysian food.
Combining my love for food, I decided to embark on the different flavours of food that restaurants have here. It’s been an exciting 2018 getting to explore our foodie journey on mind-blowing taste to the simplest form of exquisite dishes. Here are some of our favourite choices for places to makan!
No doubt here lies one of the best biryani places I’ve ever tasted. Without the need of curry to enhance the taste, the real flavours boost from its rice itself. Fragrant and fluffy at it’s best. Be sure to try their Sri Lankan banana leaf meal too all at an affordable price. This place is also a social enterprise for the poor people and helps the one who needs it the most.
