An In-depth look into Malaysia's Famous Delicacies Jun 15, 2011
One of the Thing I'm proud of Malaysia is not just all those Huge Skyscrapers or the state of the art shopping malls, but THE MALAYSIAN FOOD!

Yeah, I'm talking about all the delicious food you can get even at Mamak Store (So you don't have to fork lots of money here) With RM3 (USD 1) , you can get 2 pieces of Roti Canai and Teh Tarik.

I'm gonna share with you guys just SOME of the famous Malaysian Food, Those food that My Friends & I have mastered to cook here in Russia.

So Here We Go,

No.1 : Nasi Lemak

This is a famous Malaysian national dish, a rice soaked in coconut cream, then steamed served with dried anchovies, roasted peanuts, boiled egg and hot spicy sauce (sambal). You can get Nasi Lemak at any Malay & Mamak Store in Malaysia. Those Visiting MidValley Megamall can try the most delicious "Nasi Lemak" i've ever tasted at Madam Kwan's , but it's kinda procy (RM12). Normal Price At a Mamak Store (Range From RM.2.50 till RM 5.50)

No.2 Asam Pedas Seafood

Can't say that this is a very famous Malaysian Cuisine among tourists, but it's a HIT among locals. It's actually Seafood cooked in tamarind juice (asam) and many other spices, One of my favourites are the Asam Pedas Fish. Gonna try one next month when i get back!

No.3 : Butter Prawn

I'm proud to say that I was the first one to master how to cook this . So those of you want to try it out yourself at home, Just PM me, I'll give you the recipe, lol xD Well, this is actually prawns fried and then cooked with butter, garlic and so on . Delicious, but HIGH in Cholesterol!

Other Malaysian Foods worth to be mentioned are

- Satay

- Nasi Briyani
