Tasty Eats Around KLCC that Won’t Break the Bank!

Within 1km of KLCC hotspot, there are innumerable restaurants and warong that offer an almost crazy number of food varieties. But how do you know which one to go to?

We have found two eateries that appeal to everyone’s taste buds and most importantly affordable considering the high-end surrounding areas.

The first one is particularly our favourite. Located in front of the Star Residences KLCC (book your stay here via our website), Warong Fauziah’s Nasi Campur sells a variety of dishes at an economical price. This little zinc-roofed shack is a hidden gem behind Lembaga Getah Malaysia (opposite the main entrance of the twin towers). The best way to get there is to walk from the back road of Jalan Yap Kwan Seng and it will lead you to this rustic place.

This warong gives off a cosy vibe and is usually filled with a gentle hum of chatters from big crowds at lunch time. There are over 30 freshly-cooked and flavourful  lauk (dishes) to be devoured, sort of like a traditional buffet style.

If you want to get a table, be sure to come before 1pm as the warong will fill fast with hungry customers. Otherwise, your chance of tasting the many delicious lauk is slim and will end up feeling unsatisfied.

Location: Warong Fauziah

One of the fascinating things here is you can get any type of gulai (stew dishes that are cooked with mixtures of different spices). Moreover, there is a wide range of detectable lauk options to go with your plate of hot rice. The locals visit this place to eat famous side dishes such as fish stew and assorted vegetables too. All of these are catered in more than 40 stainless steel trays for customers to have their pick.

At Warong Fauziah, you must not forget to try their ikan bakar (charcoal-grilled fish). The smokiness of the fish will make you salivate even before you reach here. Ikan bakar comes in three varieties including ikan kembung (hardtail), ikan keli (catfish) and ikan pari (stingray). The fish is marinated and wrapped in banana leaves before they are cooked to perfection. The crispiness of the fish skin pairs well with some ulam (traditional salad) and omelette to complete the perfect Malaysian lunch menu!

To savour ikan bakar, make sure to pair it with special condiments such as sambal belacan, chilli with soy sauce and lime or cencaluk (fermented shrimp).

Overall, there is nothing not to like about this place. Worth the walk? Checked. Yummy food? Checked. Reasonable price? Double checked. 

Next, we want to introduce another go-to eatery nearby KLCC and Avenue K. 

Location to: Sup Haji Abu & Nasi Kandar Jamal Mohamed (bawah pokok) (KLCC)

Sup Haji Abu & Nasi Kandar Jamal Mohamed is located at Ground Floor, De King Boutique Hotel KLCC, No 160, Jln Ampang, KL.

The soup menu is extensive here. Soups come in a wide array of flavours including sup ayam, sup ayam kampung, sup kambing, sup daging, sup perut, sup burung puyuh, sup lidah kambing, sup lidah lembu, sup ekor, sup tulang, sup tambah, sup urat, sup international, sup campur special and more.

We ordered the famous signature soup here – sup kambing (lamb); a speciality accompanied by Bengali bread which complemented the soup’s savouriness.

If you prefer a more filling alternative, Nasi Kandar Jamal Mohamed is also ready to satisfy your hunger. Originating from Penang, you won’t be disappointed with mixing and matching their famous gravy with your choice of rice. 

If you are looking for a place to stay, our units at Star Residences KLCC are available for booking. Make your reservation through our website and get a 20% off on selected MyRehat Homes. Promotion lasts until 24 February 2023.

Nasi Campur Everyone’s Appetizing Food  

Local Foods around Sunway Putra Mall

Rice is the most important staple food in Malaysia and as Malaysian, we can’t stay away from it and its variety of lauk pauk. It must be common and nothing special or ordinary about it. Somehow the nasi campur is the most satisfying and delicious meal to enjoy especially during lunch time. Generally affordable and yummy.

Many restaurants set up the lauks as a buffet so you can pile whatever dishes you want into your plate. Malaysia has the best nasi campur service out of all the world and you can find it anywhere. 

Malaysian cuisine has evolved into a mash-up of several different cooking styles, primarily Malay, Chinese, Indian, Indonesian, and Bornean, as a result of its cultural diversity and historical migrations.

Restoran D’Chow Kit

Chow Kit is one of the busier sub-district of the city of KL. The place is most known for the city’s unofficial Red Light District, however there are plenty of delicious authentic Malaysian food here.

Address: 40G, Jalan Chow Kit, Chow Kit, 50350 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur

Here the map of the Restoran D’Chow Kit

D’Chow Kit is one of the popular restaurants in the Chow Kit area, where you can easily spot their restaurant on the street. It’s Malay-Indonesian cuisine satisfies locals and many Indonesians who reside in Chow Kit.

Almost every popular dish representing Indonesia and Malay food is here! Definitely mouth-watering and delicious! Air Mata Janda, Crazy Fried Rice, Yee Mee Fried Kekinian Fried Rice Lockdown, and many more are among them!

Anyone who enjoys Indonesian food would be delighted to visit and sample the local specialties, which include sambal cumi, ikan bakar, sayur asam, tempe orek, and a variety of fried fish.

A signature curry here is gulai kawah, which can be mixed with any type of food. They also have grilled fish and chicken too, ikan keli bakar, kembung bakar, tilapia bakar and much more.


For the dessert, they serve aneka bubur as you can see here there are many choices of savory and sweets. 

This chicken porridge can be found throughout the country. Typically, the most popular breakfast menu. Sago porridge is a porridge made from soaked sago that has been boiled. It’s usually accompanied by coconut milk and steamed taro. Candil is the name given to the red porridge. This porridge is suitable for breaking the fast because it is made with cassava and tapioca flour. Java Island is where I’m from. The sweet taste can help you recover your energy after a long day of hard work or fasting.

Mung bean porridge and black glutinous rice porridge are two desserts or porridges that are always served at Malay weddings or on regular days.

black glutinous rice porridge (bubur pulut hitam)

Further down from Restroan D’Chow Kit are a variety of stalls. This area is a rojak of many foods. A mixture of Thai, Indonesian and Malay. Don’t forget to sample Siomay and Batagor, a well-known Indonesian snack that is situated to the left of the stand. It was constructed with perfectly fried fish and wantan skin. I personally loved it.

Restoran Nasi Campur FoodCourt 

Address: 40G, Jalan Chow Kit, Chow Kit, 50350 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur

Operating hours: 8am-8.00pm

Here the map of the food court


Who doesn’t enjoy the food in the food court, where there is a wide variety of Asian cuisine? Locals and visitors alike frequent this establishment, which also serves cooked meals. The Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman Hawker Centre, Pasar Raja Bot, Bazaar Baru Chow Kit, and Medan Selera Chow Kit are all nearby and offer local delights such as nasi lemak, curry laksa, and wantan mee, as well as Indonesian dishes such as bakso and ayam penyet.

This restaurant serves nasi lemak and other dishes with it for breakfast in the morning. Then, after breakfast, they switch the menu to nasi campur. Thai cuisine is also available here.

The variety of fried foods you can have here such as ayam goreng berempah, bergedil, tauhu goreng, ikan masin, and many more. 

All these foods are just a 15-minute walk from MyRehat Regalia. Tasty and cheap. What more can you ask for!

Other than that, there is also Sudanese food which is famous among Indonesian and you shall try it soon. It is called Batagor  & Siomay, the stall is just next to the nasi lemak stall. 

Batagor “fried bakso” is a Sundanese dish from Indonesia that is popular throughout Southeast Asia. It consists of fried fish dumplings that are typically served with peanut sauce. It’s traditionally made with minced tenggiri (mackerel), but other seafood like tuna, mackerel, and prawn can also be used.

Batagor fried dumplings on the street are typically served with fried tofu and finger-shaped fried otak-otak fish cakes. These batagor ingredients are cut into bite-sized pieces and served with peanut sauce, Kecap manis (sweet soy sauce), sambal (chilli paste), and lime juice. Batagor is a fried food with a crispy and crunchy texture. Because the serving method is the same, batagor and siomay are frequently sold by the same vendor, with batagor being offered as a crispy variation of siomay.

This place is always crowded, especially during lunch and at night! So be patient while you wait for your food.

One of the things you should do is explore everything Chow Kit has to offer. Malaysia, as we all know, is a country with a diverse food heritage. Chow Kit is an example of Malaysian multiculturalism.

Foodie Art: The Gen Z & Alpha Lepaking

Cafes are always in trend, despite the mushrooming of food delivery services, people will crave social interactions in a nice setting rather than eat delivery food alone at home! A popular area with a variety of cafes is at Bukit Bintang. New cafes are opened frequently here in Bukit Bintang.

The beautiful old houses on Jalan Sin Chew Kee with their expressionistic walls and decorations are unique. Add to it Fusion Asian Western food, it creates some very appetising menus. Here are two cafes where we decided to relax and eat. Let’s have a seat.

  1. Three Years old Cafe 

A white cafe with an aesthetic vibe will smuggle your dream to fantasy. This Instagram-worthy cafe along with other cafes, is located on Jalan Sin Chew Kee.

The Three Years Old Signature

This four-year-old cafe serves delicious coffee and toast in the morning. They started just several months before Covid-19 pandemic. During the pandemic they depended on strong social media presence and word of month to sustain themselves. Now that we gather without any restrictions anymore the cafe is busy with people.

The location of this place is little bit (tersembunyi) as the buildings are at the end of the road. Eventually, it is surrounded by trees where you can get free oxygen, maybe while sipping your drinks. The design of the cafe is unique, especially at the front yard, where their seats are attached with the brick fence so it provides more space for very cool lepaking. 

Three Years Old’s Entrance

Due to the pandemic, QR Menus are the in thing now, so ordering food will be a breeze; simply scan the QR Code on the table and begin ordering without having to wait in line at the counter or pay online. While you wait for your order to be done, you can go inside and take a selfie for your Inst-Gram shot! 

The menu offers a good selection of breads, pastas, desserts, and toasts, as well as a variety of coffees and other beverages. If you prefer an easier method of ordering, go to their website. 

Link: https://threeyearsold.storehub.me/

We chose two types of pasta which were Smoked Duck Aglio Olio Spaghetti [RM 24.00], Carbonara Spaghetti [RM 25.00] and one beverage, Iced Chocolate [RM 13.00]. The pasta tasted amazing and it was so delicious that I felt like adding another plate. The price is reasonable for the quality and quantity of the food.

Operating hours: 9.30AM – 6.30PM

  1. Breakfast Spot

A new glass-cafe in Bukit Bintang alley with a variety of western breakfast menu offered. The cafe is located in front of Three Years Old Cafe. The taste and ambience is worth the price!

Breakfast Spot is a pork-free that serves contemporary foods such as pies, pasta, salads and alongside with their signature coffees and other beverages too.

The style of decoration of this new cafe had caught the attention of many people passing through this alley. The combination of green from nature and light mint plus white that creates a calm feeling of peace.

Breakfast Spot

The two-level cafes that surround the front yard offer spacious cement seat layouts with natural sunlight under glasses.

While the cafe is well-known for its breakfast offerings, it is open until 6 p.m., allowing for an early breakfast dinner. It is KL’s newest hip brunch spot, complete with a side mural painting.

The combination of heritage style architecture and modern touches gives the café a vintage appearance and evokes old-school style. As the name implies, there is a seat in every corner of the café. You can either have your brunch outside under the skylight or inside under the cozy lighting.

Breakfast Spot’s Interior

We also ordered some dessert and drinks that were affordable but still looked pricey to us. We ordered Blueberry Pie, Lemon Soda and Ice Mochasize. The pie was smaller than the pies that I have eaten before but it was delicious!

Blueberry Pie, Lemon Soda and Ice Mochasize.

Operating hours: 8.00 AM- 6.00 PM 

Address: 2, Jln Sin Chew Kee, Bukit Bintang, 50150 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur.

Google Business: shorturl.at/aORT9

Because this place is kind of new, they do not have website pages yet. Maybe later they will make it, hehehehe. So you can get their google business page here and check out others’ reviews and opening times too. 

We loved eating and exploring the cafes here especially when we are not the one paying. LOL! The cafes we ate and chilled at had good vibes and tasty drinks and foods. Definitely these are the cafes we would recommend to our friends. That is the end of my review of the cafes I went to at Jln Sin Chew Kee, Bukit Bintang. Do enjoy reading it. 

Please keep in mind that this is just my personal taste and opinion. All opinions expressed are my own, honest opinions that have not been influenced in any way. My review is based on my visits at the time. I am not a food critic and do not consider myself to be one; however, this platform allows me to write about and review my own personal dining experiences, whether they are good or bad, delicious or not; all of my opinions are honest and truthful. If you disagree or agree with me at any point, or if you do not have the same experiences that I have, I accept no responsibility because everyone will have their own experiences that they will encounter.

Happy Eating 🙂

Chow Kit a Suburb Every Malaysian Tahu!

Chow Kit is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Kuala Lumpur. Founded by Loke Chow Kit, a well-known miner, municipal councillor, public official, and the first local owner of a department store with the name Chow Kit. 

Chow Kit has since the 50s grown to a bustling commercial centre till today and its demographic too has gone from being mainly Chinese to a strong immigrant community from Indonesia starting from the 80s. That too is changing with the influx of people from South Asia mainly from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepalese all setting up shop and living here too making it thrive even more.

Chow Kit is wide and has many interesting attractions and foodie places. It will take you days to see it all but we would like to just take a sample if you only have a few hours to see Chow Kit. The pasar or market in Chow Kit is divided into two sections: wet market and dry market. It is interesting to see the traders and customers haggle over the price which can sound loud and argumentative but people all walk away happy all round.

The wet market, also known as Bazaar Baru Chow Kit, is Kuala Lumpur’s largest Pasar Pagi (Morning Market). The dry and wet markets are located in the same area. Exploring it will take time but if you are a fruitarian we suggest exploring the fruit section here and sample the many fruits here. Haggle away.

Variety of fresh exotic fruits & other local fresh fruits

In addition, the wet market sells a variety of fresh and inexpensive raw foods such as fish, chicken, seafood, and so on. You can go there if you want to see what they sell in the wet market; nevertheless, it is connected to the dry market, which makes walking easier.

After buying fruits we suggest you sample the food along the main pathway of Chow Kit. There are numerous foods to try out. We suggest the following: Restoran Mohd Yasmeen, Kudu Nasi Kandar, Thai Boat Noodle, the most authentic Thai food on this street! Nasi Kapau Indonesians and Negeri Sembilan food at Restoran Salai Salai. They’re all on the same street!

It allows visitors to gain a better understanding of the culture of the residents as well as the history of the town. Chow Kit is a Malaysia, past, present and future.

Durians of Malaysia

Durian season is here again! The King of Fruits season comes every year. We Malaysians can’t wait to savour all the different types of durians. Nowadays, you don’t have to travel far to get durians because you can get durians wherever and whenever you want, especially when it’s their season!

The only good thing about this Covid-19 pandemic is that durian is cheap!

Malaysia is the second largest exporter for durians in the world due to its well-cultivated durians.  Durians can be divided into two flavours, sweet and bitter. Since there are many kinds of durians, you probably wonder which is the best durian species.

So here I will list the top 10 most popular durians in Malaysia.

Credits : hasrulhassan

  1. Musang King

Musang King is almost everyone’s favourite due its creamy flesh that melts and the sweetness that blends well with the bitterness of the flesh. The smell also compliments the flavour well. The flesh is bright yellow and it has greyish-green with a hint of yellow to it and the spikes seems to resemble a pyramid. You can easily recognize which one is Musang King based on the appearance.

Credits : kartel dakwah

  1. D24

D24, also known as Durian Sultan is also a popular one. Before Musang King gained fame, D24 used to be people’s favourite during the 1990s due to its bitter taste with a hint of sweetness and alcohol. The high quality ones have a dry and firm flesh. You can identify which is D24 by looking at its short stem and the obvious brown ring at the bottom.

  1. Tekka

If we have a king, we also need a queen. Tekka, also known as Musang Queen, is famous for its consistent texture and bitterness. The texture is different from Musang King. Musang King has a butter-like thick flesh while Tekka has a moist and wrinkly – almost pale flesh that is easy to break. Since Tekka is rare to find, whenever you see one, grab it! However, it is not recommended for first timers, like Musang King due to its acquired taste which is not well liked by the average durian eater.

  1. Red Prawn

Can be known as Hong Xia is good for those that have a sweet tooth due to its sweet texture. Its creamy and sweet with a slight bitter taste makes it feel like ‘dessert’ among durians. The texture is creamy but slightly watery. It can be easily obtained in Pahang and Johor. It also has a reddish-orange flesh that stands out among other durians. Due to its sweetness, it is often used to make ice cream and durian porridge.

Credits : hasrulhassan

  1. Black Thorn

Black Thorn is an award-winning durian. It is one of the higher grade durians and extremely rare. Like Musang King, it has a bitter-sweet flavour but with a more balance between the two. Its flesh has a rosy shade of orange, smooth and soft too! It can be pretty pricey due to its rarity. To identify this durian, look for the darker tips of its thorn.

Credits : kartel dakwah

  1. XO

XO has a bitter alcohol aftertaste. It gets its signature bitterness from prolonged fermentation. This process gives it a washed-out look, that will make it look unappealing though the taste will prove you wrong. It has a texture that is soft and slightly watery. You can recognize XO durian by its appearance of a brownish-green shell with an oval appearance, thorns pointed inward at the base of the fruit.

Credits : hasrulhassan

  1. Golden Phoenix

Golden Phoenix has a pungent smell that you can smell from faraway. It has a sharper and bitter taste for those wanting something bitter. It has a thick flesh with small seeds. It is also affordable and easy to get, so because of this, it is a popular choice among casual durian eaters.

Credits : hasrulhassan

  1. D101

D101 has a combination of bitterness, sweetness, with a slightly sour taste. Its flesh is yellow with a subtle orange colour. The flesh is firmer than any other durians. It also falls off the seed easily. D101 is one of the common durians so you can get it whenever the season comes.

Credits : hasrulhassan

  1. D13

D13 has a red-orange flesh that’s sweet with a slight bitterness on it. D13 is also often mistaken as Red Prawns. You can spot the difference between Red Prawns and D13 by identifying the seeds. D13 has a large seed among other durians. It has a sticky and not fibrous texture. You can usually get an affordable price for D13.

Credits : kartel dakwah

  1. D1

D1 has a milky and sweet taste. The flesh is also crunchy on the surface but it slips off the seed easily. It has a small seed that will make it easy for you to eat. It also has a pale yellow flesh. Due to its milky taste, children can find them appealing to eat.

We really are lucky to have durians in our country. Either you love it or hate it, durians are a part of Malaysian culture. There are many more types of durians that you can keep an eye out for but these 10 are the ones that people search for whenever durians season comes.

Make sure you eat durians in moderation, we wouldn’t to make ourselves too full to eat durians later on right? 😀

Happy eating!

Food Delivery Services in Malaysia

Written by Nurul Fadhilah

Follow us on Instagram and subscribe to our Telegram channel for the latest updates on MyRehat.

Food delivery is now part of the way we eat. Before the pandemic most people generally only ordered pizza as their food delivery. SInce the pandemic the way we get food has changed forever! Now you can order food through a restaurant or grocer’s website or mobile app, or through a food ordering company without ever having to step foot in the restaurant!

Foodpanda (written as foodpanda) is the first large scale food delivery service in Malaysia and it has been operating since 2012 till now! It has been almost 10 years and foodpanda is still going strong despite the many competitors.

During this lockdown, sometimes you are feeling lazy to cook so you probably would order in. Since there are many food delivery services nowadays, you probably wonder which one is a good platform to order at.

Here are some of the main food delivery services out there :

  1. foodpanda

As foodpanda was the first and still has one of the largest food delivery services in Malaysia, it has a variety of food options for you to choose as they partner with many restaurants. From Malay food, fusion, Indian, Chinese and much more. You also have an option for self pick up of your food by ordering online. Their delivery fees differ depending on the store and distance from your location.

But, the food prices are usually 20% to 30% more than what you would have ordered in a restaurant.  There are special promos and food vouchers available to claim, so by using the vouchers you can lower the prices. How great is that?

You can order through their website or download the application on your phone. The riders always wear their shirts and bags so you can easily spot them when they arrive.

For those who still have not tried foodpanda, you should try it because they don’t only deliver food from popular merchants like McDonalds but also many specialty food places too.

  1. GrabFood

Grab started as a ride-hailing service before they expanded their service to food delivering, grocery delivering, bill payments and much more. Grab aims to be a super App the way WeChat is in China.  Even when they started as a ride-hailing service, their food delivering services were becoming a key part of their platform. You can filter what kind of food you want from Chinese cuisine, Korean, Western, you name it! They also have Halal filter for the Muslim customers. Their prices are similar to foodpanda and you pay using their e-wallet, GrabPay. Grab has almost everything you need in an app. Pretty awesome isn’t it?

Their delivery fees also depend on your location to the store. There are always promotions so you can get discounts for your order. You can also get GrabReward points upon ordering if you used GrabPay to pay. Grab has an e-wallet in which you pay for so many things from TIME internet, phone bills, attractions and much more hence you collect points every time you use Grabpay. So the points you accumulate is enough to redeem free meals on a monthly basis!

  1. AirAsia Food

AirAsia Food first started in Malaysia in May 2020. They started this service ever since COVID-19 hit its airline’s business pretty badly. It has over 500 restaurants and has delivered close to 15,000 orders in its first three months of its operation. Pretty sure, they have grown bigger now. This platform doesn’t offer a map feature in their apps so you can’t track your order, but you can still chat with them in-app to know about your delivery status.

The platform charges restaurants a 15% commission per delivery. Their delivery fees are 5% lower than GrabFood and foodpanda. Convenient for us to save money during this pandemic. Their choices are still not as many as Grab or foodpanda but you can order the AirAsia Santan Meals to help you reminisce about the time you are in the plane like Nasi Lemak Pak Nasser. Yummy!

You can order via their website or you can download the ‘airasia’ apps on your phone. Fun fact, with each order, you can get reward points to be used for AirAsia Flights. Let’s hope COVID-19 becomes manageable soon, so that everyone can fly again!

  1. DeliverEat

DeliverEat was founded in 2012. They have over 1500 restaurants for you to choose from, including some of the popular ones like Sushi King and 4Fingers! You can order multiple menu from a restaurant plus there is no minimum order for any restaurant.

The delivery fees are RM5. You can pay via card or cash. You can also order through their website or you can download their apps on Google Play Store or App Store.

Recently, they had a campaign where you can pay using ShopeePay to get free delivery. You have to spend a minimum of RM15 to get free delivery using your ShopeePay account. The campaign just ended on 15th June. Let’s hope that this campaign will be back because I can eat and shop at the time via Shopee!

You should try all these food delivery services at least once to find which one is suitable or browse them all for the best deals! While browsing, make sure to book your stay at MyRehat so you can eat, chill and watch Netflix 🙂

I am starving, let’s eat!

Kuih Bangkit

Kuih Bangkit merupakan biskut yang dibuat daripada tepung ubi kayu yang akan berperisa pandan atau kelapa. Ia juga selalu dijadikan dalam bentuk bunga atau bintang. Kuih ini juga merupakan salah satu kuih tradisional. Teksturnya yang rangup dan rapuh membuatkan ia menjadi kegemaran ramai.

Walaupun masih lagi PKP, kuih raya adalah antara yang wajib ada di rumah bagi orang-orang yang berada di rumah semasa bulan Syawal ini. Mereka boleh tangkap gambar, rakam video dan makan kuih raya. Semoga Raya tahun depan menjadi lebih baik daripada tahun ini!

Apabila PKP 3.0 telah ditamatkan, harapan kami adalah untuk penginapan kami dapat ditempah orang ramai untuk membuat sambutan raya kecil-kecilan di tempat penginapan kami!

8 Hari Raya Heritage Dishes

Written by Nasuha Aiedn

Follow us on Instagram and subscribe to our Telegram channel for the latest updates on MyRehat.

Hari Raya Aidilfitri, or also known as Hari Raya Puasa is one of the religious holidays celebrated by Muslims in Malaysia and all over the world. This festival marks the end of Ramadhan, the holy month of fasting, which is considered a blissful occasion as it signifies a person’s victory and accomplishment in obedience and self-resistance.

Aidilfitri 2021 will be the sad Raya for all of us. Most of us are stuck and can’t go back to their hometown due the Movement Control Order (MCO). You could say ‘Raya is cancelled’ and no baju raya because you don’t have the mood to celebrate, right? What is Raya without our parents, our big family and friends? This is really disheartening for all of us. I really hope this will be last MCO in Malaysia!

Despite the gloom, we still have our Raya foods. I can say that no one can resist it! Imagine your table full of cookies, candy and traditional delicacies.

So, what are you waiting for, lets diggin’!

1. Beef/Chicken Rendang

Rendang is the King of Hari Raya foods, the most dish of this occasion. Do you know that Rendang was declared by CNN as the “World’s 50 Most Delicious Foods”? Rendang has a rich, savoury gravy that has been infused for hours with aromatic spices and coconut milk. This dish is often prepared with either beef or chicken, but if you’re lucky you can find even Cockles (Kerang) Rendang.

2. Ketupat Nasi

While Rendang is the King, nothing symbolizes Hari Raya more than Ketupat, one of the must-haves. Ketupat Nasi is rice boiled in a diamond-shaped pack of woven palm leaf strips. As it cooks, the rice grains would expand to fill the pouch and the rice becomes compressed into soft cakes. It must be peeled, cut into pieces, and eaten with dishes such as Rendang, Serunding, Kuah Kacang, Kuah Lodeh, and others.

3. Ketupat Palas

Ketupat Palas is made from glutinous rice (or can be filled with black glutinous rice) and it is wrapped in triangular shape using Palas leaves. Same as the Ketupat Nasi, it must be peeled and served with other Raya dishes. Some people would add beans like soybean or black bean.

4. Lemang

Like the Ketupat Palas, lemang also is made from glutinous rice. Lemang comes in a hollowed bamboo tube with glutinous rice, coconut milk, salt, and banana leaves. The banana leaves would prevent the rice from sticking to the bamboo tube. Then it is roasted over fire for a few hours.

5. Kuah Lodeh/Lontong

This dish is a combination of ketupat nasi or nasi impit and creamy coconut-based broth with a variety of veggies like eggplant, green beans, carrot, and others. It also has tofu, tempe, glass noodle, tofu skin and black fungus. The use of turmeric would make the dish yellow-ish, while the use of chilies and a bit of spice would make it spicy.

6. Dodol

This popular sweet treat for Hari Raya.  Made from coconut milk, brown sugar or gula melaka and rice flour. These ingredients are cooked together for up to nine hours and the cooking process involves continuously stirring the sticky mixture in a hot wok. This dodol is sticky, chewy and sweet.

7. Satay

Satay is something can be found normally year-round. Still, you can find this dish in any Raya open house. Satay is meat skewered on bamboo stick that is grilled over a blazing charcoal fire and served with “kuah kacang” sauce, chunked cucumber, and sliced onions. Don’t forget the ketupat nasi too. Meat options may include chicken, beef, liver and mutton.

8. Serunding

Serunding or the Malaysian Meat Floss can be made from any meat like beef, chicken, and fish. The meat is seasoned with spices and cooked until dry to preserve texture and aroma. This dish is often served with ketupat nasi, ketupat palas and lemang.

Ahhhh now I am famished and starting to crave for these Raya dishes. Haih… I can’t wait for Raya, to sit down and devour my Raya foods!

After all food is the only thing that is going to make this Raya better!

What is the reason you leave your home, your beloved country to travel all around the world? You leave and voyage all over the globe. Most of the tourist and traveller has the same reasons which is learn the culture and challenging their self for something exciting and different. One of the reasons I travel is for food. To experience different tastes of the world. As a Malaysian I say we have some of the tastiest in the world. 

A dish that has gained popularity worldwide is Laksa. Do you know that we have different kind of Laksa? We have Laksa Johor, Laksa Kedah, Laksam or Laksa Kelantan, Nyonya Laksa, Assam Laksa and Laksa Sarawak.

This bowl of goodness is worth of every slurp. These Laksas can be eaten at street stalls to the fancy dining. The word Laksa, comes from The Sanskrit word “Lakshah”, meaning a hundred thousand of ingredients (or types). 

Laksa is a popular Peranakan spicy noodle soup and it is a fusion of Chinese noodles and Southeast Asian curries. 

Assam Laksa

Assam Laksa also called as Laksa Penang, or Penang Assam Laksa. This type of laksa is from Penang but you still can easily find it in almost any other Malaysian state. Assam Laksa is spicy and sour. The sour flavour originates from the asam jawa or tamarind and used in the soup stock, along with the shredded fish and the blend of shallots, turmeric, lemongrass, and chilies. Assam Laksa is served with the thick rice noodles, then garnished with cucumber strips, thin-sliced onions, mint leaves, chopped pineapples and some red chilies. For a stronger flavour, some people would add another spoonful of prawn paste to make it more ‘kick’.

FYI, Assam Laksa are being listed among the top 10 best foods of the World’s 50 Best Foods drawn up by CNN, the US TV network. Assam Laksa are ranked at seventh place. So, can you imagine, how good is this?

You should try this laksa at Air Itam Assam Laksa. One of the most popular places at Penang Island.

Address: Jalan Pasar Pekan Ayer Itam, Georgetown, Pulau Pinang 11500.

Laksa Kedah

This laksa is quite similar with the Assam Laksa. It has the same ingredients but with herbs and vegetables such as daun selom, ulam raja and pucuk gajus which are popular in Kedah.  The broth is made from mackerel or sardines, and tamarind. Laksa Kedah also served with the thick rice noodles.

Laksa Johor

In the state of Johor, Laksa Johor is served with spaghetti. The fish broth has a thicker consistency. This laksa is served with various types of greens such as cucumbers, long beans, laksa leaves and bean sprouts. And do you know that some Johorean eat this laksa with their hands? 

Laksam or Laksa Kelantan

Laksam is typically found in east coast states of Kelantan and Terengganu. This fish-based broth is creamier and slightly sweeter. The laksam is served with the flat rice noodles, that are made from rice flour, water, and salt. The mixture is steamed, then rolled, and finally cut them into small bite-sized pieces. This dish is garnished with the ulam-ulaman such as long beans, cucumber, bean sprout, torch ginger flower (bunga kantan), Vietnamese coriander, and cabbage. Lastly, do not forget a spoonful of sambal at the top of it!

If you are in Kelantan, you can try this laksam at Restoran By-T Laksam.

Address: Jalan Raja Perempuan Zainab II, Kampung Belukar Lanjut Kumumin, 16100 Kota Bharu, Kelantan

But you also can get Laksam at Warung Kak Na Nasi Kerabu in Bandar Tasek Selatan.

Laksa Sarawak

Laksa Sarawak are originates from the state of Sarawak. This dish is dried shrimp-based broth that served with thin rice vermicelli, shredded omelette, shredded chicken, prawns, and fresh coriander. The broth is made from dried shrimp paste, garlic, chilies, lime juice, coconut milk, and some tamarind. 

Just for some extra information, late Anthony Bourdain once describing this dish as the ‘breakfast of the Gods’. He said, “Wow, I almost said yummy there. What the f**ck is happening to me?”
