I've been thinking about my mom. Her operation was finished last Friday but we are still waiting for her laboratory result on Thursday. I hope everything is well. And beside that I also wished that I am in Malaysia right now. I've been missing the place especially the foods. On this post, it will be the first time that I will write about my favorite foods in Malaysia and their delicacies.
Asam Laksa is a spicy noodle soup that is very popular in Malaysia. This is a combination of Chinese and Malay Cuisine. This one is very spicy and taste like Sinigang. It is a sour fish based soup. It consists of thick white laksa noodles. I can't eat finish a bowl of this because its super spicy.
Chicken Satay is a seasoned, skewered and grilled chicken on a stick with peanut butter sauce and also partnered with pipino. It's our version of BBQ here in the Philippines. But this one excels from our BBQ because of its sauce. Super yummy!
Roti Canai is a flat bread that was derived from Indian Cuisine. There are several variations of Roti. I love the simple Roti and Roti Tisu. It has 3 different sauces.
Teh Tarik literally means "pulled tea" which is common in Malaysia and Singapore. It is made from black tea mixed with condensed milk or evaporated milk.
Roti Canai and Teh Tarik are my favorites above all.
Naan bread with chicken, mint, curry, dal sauce; Tosai bread with curry, dall, herb sauce
Mee Goreng is a noodle dish that was derived from Chinese Cuisine. It doesn't look yummy on the picture but trust me its delicious and full of flavors! It is also spicy. It also has shrimps, Chinese cabbage, chili, and meatballs.
Nasi Lemak is also common in Malaysia. It is a rice cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaf. This is considered the National dish of Malaysia. This dish is spicy because of the hot spicy sauce (sambal)! It is served with anchovies, peanuts, boiled egg, lamb curry, cucumber, and traditional chili paste. It also has chicken as side dish. As you see below, I don't have a picture of it. When I was in Malaysia Nasi Lemak is wrapped on pandan leaf and as you open it you don't need any plates or whatever utensils. You can eat it using your bare hands.
I know I can't go in Malaysia in just a snap. But I can still eat some of Malaysia's Delicacies from Singaporean or Chinese restaurants here in Manila. I've been scouting for an Indian, Chinese or Singapore restaurant for quite some time now. There's no similar restos that is near our office and I knew there is somewhere in Ortigas. I hope I can go there if time permits.
