Food you should try in Malaysia.


Malaysia has lots of great food. Among the great goods, Satay was the best I’ve ever had in Malaysia.

It’s just some meat on a stick. What is so special about this, right? But if you taste Satay once, then you will know what I mean.

When I was in Melaka, a little city in the west of Malaysia, I found a charming little restaurant for satay, which got the best I’ve ever had. 3 nights in a row, I had my dinner there.



Satay stick laden with raw meat, seafood and vegetables which you cook by dipping into scorching satay sauce. Choose your favorites from the fridge, already ready to cook on a stick, then just dip the stick in the sauce pot and wait for several minutes too cook. I don’t exactly know what the sauce is made of, but i could taste minor spices with peanut scent.



All these cost just 5~8RM per person. Great deal in cost-wise.

You can find different kind of satay in many streets in Malaysia. Usually they serve barbequed chicken satay with mustard sauce on.

    That’s too nad. If you’ve stayed longer, you’ll be able to taste variety of food from the many races and culture in Malaysia.

  4. Ah, Melaka — my hometown! That is actually a specific variety of satay called “satay celup” (celup is the Malay word for dipping). 🙂

    You’re speaking my language, Juno: I just spent a month in Malaysia and the satay there is beyond great. I’m in Indonesia now and, while the satay here is good, it’s not half as great as the stuff in KL, Melaka or Penang!
