To understand Malaysian cuisine you must first understand its origins. In ancient times, this tropical paradise was the centre for traders from Southeast Asia, China, the Indian sub-continent, the Middle East and, later, Europe. The rich and spicy Malaysian cuisine was developed from the combination of local cookery with gastronomic techniques and ingredients left by the traders passing through.
Today, Malaysian cuisine consists of many tasty and exotic dishes — Malay, Chinese, Indian, Nyonya (a blend of Chinese and Malay cookery), Indian, Eurasian and cooking from Borneo’s ethnic groups. Popular Malaysian food include satay, beef rendang, mee goreng and nyonya curry.
The number of dishes is limitless and with the rich, flavourful and exotic blend of food available, it is no wonder Malaysian cuisine is known as the meeting point for Eastern and Western cultures — a true melting pot, and a food-lover paradise. Stimulating flavours and culinary styles are a pleasure to the senses.
