Delight in Exquisite Malaysian Noodles, Sweets and More
Those with an adventurous palate will be treated to the diverse assortment of fragrant, exotic foods offered in Kuala Lumpur. Highlights include the flavourful Malaysian noodles, mouth-watering Nasi Lemak and delectable sweets that leave you craving for more.
The sumptuous Malaysian noodles can be found on the many food streets of Malaysia and in the comfort of the St. Regis Kuala Lumpur hotel. Another notable dish is the Laksa, which serves noodles in a rich flavoured soup with a dash of coconut milk. The crowd favourite is the stir fried flat rice noodles, Char Kuey Teow, served with prawns, egg, and chives, which come in varying levels of spice to satisfy your most adventurous cravings.
The Nasi Lemak, a quintessential Malaysian street food, can be found in restaurants all over Asia. Warm coconut rice is served with a fried chicken leg, stir fried tempeh with anchovies and the divine sambal, a chilli sauce made with bird’s eye chilli and prawn paste, topped with fresh cucumber and tomatoes.
Sweet treats are aplenty in Malaysian cuisine, and especially refreshing in the humid weather. ABC, or Ice Kacang, one of the most popular Malaysian sweet dishes, is a concoction made of finely shaved ice with red beans, grass jelly, sweet corn, peanuts and the delightful rose syrup. Street vendors may add bananas, durian ice cream or even palm seeds to enhance the flavour of this dessert.
Ask your St. Regis Butler or our Concierge desk for recommendations and directions to find these delectable Malaysian delights.
