Do you like Malaysian Food? Me too. Look at these photos, how can I not?

Malaysia is a complex country. There’s the religion, history with the indigenous tribes, palm oil and the rainforest, history of immigrants, politics, and many more subjects that make this country interesting. As what the tourism board says, Malaysia represents many races of Asians: Indian, Chinese, indigenous, Malay, and many others in between. So, it’s natural to be complex.

For us visitors, their multicultural background is a good news. It’s like someone said “Let there be food!” In Malaysia, you can eat some of the most popular cuisines: Chinese and Indian, and also Malay food which is a signature cuisine of ethnic Malay’s. Think of how many dishes on a Chinese restaurant menu. Count how many Indian dishes you know. Add more Malay dishes… Malaysians are even serious at taking tea breaks. and now you know why Malaysia is a heaven for foodies. There are cities that’s focused on food tourism, like Penang. Maybe that’s why I’ve been drawn to Malaysia for all these years, and hosting two out of three AWE Conferences there. Food is a great motivation, isn’t it?

From a bowl of noodles to coconut rice, there’s something for everyone. Let’s take a journey into Malaysian food.
