One of the best things about living in or visiting Malaysia is the food everyone says. It is cheap and plentiful. I wanted to share with all of you some of the absolutely delicious dishes that Malaysia has to offer. I know many of them are meat based and I am not promoting meat, but there are vegetarian versions of all of them. Some of the vegetarian versions are more delicious and more healthier than their meat counterparts. If you have not been to Malaysia before and you’re planning for a visit, the food here will definitely keep you coming back many say.

These 25 mouthwatering food showcase just how rich and varied Malaysia’s culinary tradition is. For friends who are vegetarian, like I am, please don’t worry. There are quite a number of vegetarian restaurants in Malaysia such as Kechara Oasis, who can make some of the food listed below using vegetarian alternatives.

I hope you enjoy feasting your eyes on the dishes included in this article and do let me know your thoughts and experiences of Malaysian food in the comments section below.

1. Asam Laksa

Asam Laksa

Asam Laksa

Asam Laksa is a spicy fish-based rice noodle soup. It is one of the most famous dishes from Peranakan cuisine. This type of food is a fusion of both Chinese and traditional Malay cuisines that developed amongst the Peranakans, who are the descendants of Chinese migrants who settled in parts of Malaysia and whose culture intermingled with that of the local Malays. It’s an extremely popular and widespread dish in Malaysia. You can find it everywhere, especially on the streets of Penang, one of the 13 states of Malaysia.

Asam Laksa consists of fish, shredded cucumber, onions, pineapple, red chillies, common mint, lettuce, daun kesum (Vietnamese mint) and pink bunga kantan (torch ginger). It’s mostly served with thick rice noodles and some prawn paste for flavouring, though some might find this a little uncomfortable due to the strong taste.

Vegetarian versions of this dish can be found at Be Lohas at KLIA2, Water Lily Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur, Beyond Veggie in Kuala Lumpur and Veggie Planet in Melaka.

 

2. Rojak

Rojak is a traditional salad dish made from various fruit and vegetables. It’s usually served with a generous amount of prawn paste, though this may not be suitable for people who can’t stand the strong taste.

Fruit rojak typically consists of cucumber, pineapple, jicama (or Mexican turnip), bean sprouts and deep-fried tofu (tau pok and you tiao). The dressing for this rojak is usually made from belacan (shrimp paste), water, sugar, lime juice, chilli and topped up with crushed peanuts.

Rojak Penang is quite similar to fruit rojak except that it usually includes extra ingredients such as guava, jambu air (java apple), raw mango and squid fritters. The dressing for this rojak is thicker, with an almost caramel-like consistency.

Sotong kangkung is a popular dish throughout Malaysia and can easily be found at many food stalls. This rojak consists of sotong (cuttlefish) and kangkung (water spinach), cucumbers, bean curd, peanuts, chilli and sauce.

Indian rojak, also known as mamak rojak or pasembor, has a thick peanut sauce that is both sweet and spicy. Ingredients for this version include boiled potatoes, hard boiled eggs, bean sprouts, cucumber. Some types of Indian rojak also include bean curd, deep fried dough fritters, prawn fritters or cuttlefish.

Most of the time, it’s also referred to as “印度煎饼”, meaning Indian pancake. Traditionally, Roti Canai is served with dhal (lentil curry) or any other type of curry popular in mamak stalls, such as fish curry, chicken curry, mutton curry, etc. Another popular way that Roti Canai is served is with a generous sprinkling of white sugar, a favourite for those with a sweet tooth.

Apart from the usually style, there are many other variations of Roti Canai, such as Roti Telur (egg bread), Roti Tisu (tissue bread) that is paper thin and flaky, Roti Bawang (onion bread), Roti Telur Bawang (egg and onion bread), Roti Pisang (banana bread), Roti Planta (margarine bread) that is often served with sugar, and many more.

  2. wan wai meng on Jan 2, 2017 at 2:28 am

    The variety and combination of food that we have in Malaysia is staggering and it is a reflection of the cultures that are prevalent in Malaysia. Malaysia is unique it has three dominant cultures, Chinese, Indian and Malay, and all three cultures are established and have the biggest populations in Asia. The fusion of all the foods creates dishes and foods that are very unique to Malaysia.

    Ancient Malaya, was a focal point of Chinese and Indian traders, another influence that has not been mentioned are Arabian traders, there is also quite a significant influence of Arab culture within Malaysian food.

  3. Anne Ong on Nov 25, 2016 at 1:57 pm

Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful article! ?

Many years back when i am younger i loves those dishes but not now .Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the post.

  6. Echeah on Nov 20, 2016 at 3:03 am

    OMG I’m salivating big time looking at these pics! Indeed Malaysia has the best food in the world! Ok I may be biased, but I have not come across anyone, friends, colleagues, family who had said our food was nothing to shout about. In fact almost everyone has said they love our food. It’s not only Malaysian food. All kinds of cuisine can be found here. However, it is our best kept secret, because Malaysia has not done a very good job of marketing it.

    Japanese food, Thai food, Italian food, they are world reknown. But “Malaysian food”? We have a long way to go.

    There are even countries fighting over the origin of cuisine and making claims on them, I wonder with wide eyes. Whoever does a better job of marketing gets to stake their claim on them.

    Whatever they claim to be theirs, well I still say the Malaysian version always wins hands down. Our food is good and cheap to boot.

  7. TekLee on Nov 20, 2016 at 2:37 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the article. The pictures makes me mouth watering. Yes, Malaysia is a mix culture country, the beauty of it is it results variety choices of food. Like Nyonya food is the result of mix culture and mix race. I like at least one type of food in every race, I like nasi briyani, nasi lemak, char kuey tiow, curry mee, asam laksa & apam balik. I can eat five to six pieces of apam balik with empty stomach! 🙂 Now I am vegetarian, I still eat nasi lemak with only rice and peanuts. It is because what I like about nasi lemak is not the sambal, but the fragrance rice. And I can eat vegetarian curry mee. There’s a stall in a restaurant behind Gompa where an Indonesian kakak (sister) selling vegetarian curry mee is very nice. I am proud to be Malaysian. I know more than one language, I know more than one culture, and I can taste more than one type of food. _/\_

  8. HelenaC on Nov 19, 2016 at 11:36 pm

    Malaysian food is the best! We have varieties and I love all! Proud to be Malaysian.
    Oh and we also have super good vegetarian restaurants too, my favourite is Kechara Oasis and Loving Hut at Sri Petaling. Super good!

  9. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Nov 18, 2016 at 10:54 pm

    Aside from the fact this list ignites the tam chiak (Hokkien for ‘glutton’ hehe) in me, it brings back some very fond memories of my childhood as I am sure it does for many Malaysians reading this. One of the reasons is because some of our biggest festivals revolve around food. Chinese New Year? Reunion dinner. Hari Raya? Buka puasa in a neighbour’s open house. Deepavali? Murukku.

    Malaysian cuisine is actually a perfect reflection of our society. Our nation is a rojak (fruit salad! Item #2 on the list) of cultures, traditions and races, bound together harmoniously by a common sauce. In the case of rojak, it’s the sticky sweet black stuff and in the case of Malaysia, it’s a love of food! 🙂

    Not only that but the various cuisines have influenced one another. Indian curries for example, have been assimilated into Chinese cooking to take on a milder taste, while the Chinese have adapted Western recipes to appeal to more Asian palates (Hainanese chicken chop, anyone?). So in Malaysia, food has become a platform for us to learn about one another’s cultures, as we swap stories and bond over a plate of nasi lemak (coconut rice) at a 24 hour roadside stall.

    I’m proud to be Malaysian and proud that we have welcomed one another with open arms, and integrated the unique customs and traditions of each race to form our Malaysian way. We invite the world to Malaysia…come sit with us and share a cup of teh tarik (pulled tea) and see how you too can become a part of this multi-cultural society! 🙂

  10. Alice Tay on Nov 18, 2016 at 8:28 pm

    I am grateful that I am a Malaysian as I am free to enjoy all of my favourite foods especially Nasi Lemak, Curry Mee, Mee Goreng and many others.

    Few years ago, when I have decided to stop eating meat and be a lifetime vegetarian, I had no difficulty finding vegetarian foods. This is because many vegetarian restaurants have served the delicious dishes that I like the most and most important is the vegetarian foods are healthier and no harm to the animals.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these delicious foods in Malaysia which I can share to my overseas friends.

  11. Adeline Tan on Nov 18, 2016 at 7:02 pm

    Malaysia is a multi racial country. Each race has it own traditions and unique cultures. Foods is one of them that made up these 25 mouthwatering dishes from the photos shown in this blog post.
    I like all of them except the ones with sea foods and meat in it because i am a vegetarian but these can be substitute by vegetarian mock meat and fish and it is equally tasty. I am lucky to be a Malaysian as there is a Chinese saying Malaysia is a Delicious Food Paradise!

  12. Mingwen on Nov 17, 2016 at 11:47 pm

    When it comes to food, the power of food seem to able to pull all people together regardless of race, religious, gender, skin colour. Just like Kechara Soup Kitchen is doing, ‘Hunger Knows No Barriers’.

    I’m proud to be a Malaysian! I’m not saying that I’m pround because of my country is the best country because obviously it’s not. Some of our leaders of the country have no spirits to build up the country, citizens in the country are not being responsible and do our parts to contribute to the country.

    But.. I think it’s okay for temporarily, many other developed countries are still having the same issue because it’s all about us and purely caused by humans. However, we should somehow rise and shine after having fun in the muds.

  13. Justin Cheah on Nov 17, 2016 at 9:39 pm

    If i may use one phrase for Malaysia, one of them have to be food galore. Blessed by its multi racial culture, the citizens are left with many years choices of cuisines that all of us can eat on almost anything at a glance. We are indeed in a peaceful and blessed country like Malaysia that allows us to practice our preferred religion freely unlike some other parts of the world where Dorje Shugden practitionerstatus are widely discriminated and ostracised. Thank you for sharing this Rinpoche.

  14. Wylfred Ng on Nov 17, 2016 at 11:27 am

    好好吃的食物。

    马来西亚的特色就是多元种族、多元文化、多元食物。 对于不同食物的接受程度也非常广。 所以在马来西亚我们可以看到不同国家食物的餐厅。

    不过当然马来西亚的地道食物一点也不输其他国家的食物。 马来西亚由于是多元文化种族的国家, 所以某些食物也是拥有不同种族的特色。 比如第一号的啊参律沙就结合了华人和马来人的特色。 当然在不同地区也有不同的特色。 马六甲的啊参律沙就有马六甲娘惹的特色。 所以在马来西亚要吃到不同特色的食物一点也不难。

    这篇文章也提供了很多间不同素食餐馆的名字和地址, 让身为素食者的人们也可以吃到素食版本的美食, 可说是非常贴心。

    谢谢

  15. Sharon Ong on Nov 17, 2016 at 12:27 am

    One of the things I love about being a Malaysian and living in Malaysia is the amazing amount of good food available at all hours of the day. Malaysia is truly a food haven for both meat eaters and non-meat eaters alike as non-meat versions are easily available. These days, many chefs or hawker stall owners are more than happy to whip up a vegetarian or non-meat version of their dishes.

    One of my fav things that did not make this list is the ever satisfying Banana Leaf Rice, served with a tonne of Dhal Curry (Sambar), Pappadums, Fried Chillies and Rasam. Best eaten with fingers and washed down with milky tea (Teh Tarik). Attached is a photo of one of my happy meals. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing this list, Rinpoche. Feeling really thankful to be born in a place where food are aplenty and going vegetarian easy and enjoyable.

    Wow, i am so hungry after looking at all these pictures! 😛

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these delicious dishes of Malaysia. I love Malaysia cuisine as there are so many varieties due to the multi-cultural & multi-racial aspects of Malaysia.

    Before I become vegetarian, I thought I won’t be able to taste these delicious food anymore if I’m a vegetarian. To my surprise, nowadays for most of the dishes, we can get the vegetarian from vegetarian restaurant or meatless versions from some of the normal too. Eg vegetarian Nasi Briyani, vegetarian Bak Kut Teh, Lok Lok, etc.

    The best part is, we also have a lot of different desserts and my favourite Durian! LOL!

    Malaysia is truly an heaven for food lovers. 🙂

    Malaysia is so diverse culturally, it is truly a melting pot of cultures with the various races having their own peculiar fetish and favorites. All these are but a reflection of their roots as well as a mesh and integration of other cultures into their own.

    This speaks of certain level of acceptance and tolerance. Without these qualities, Malaysia would not have the harmony and peace that is prevalent despite the differences.

    We all love our diverse food in Malaysia, we all love our culture, we all love Malaysia.

  18. Kb Thapa on Nov 16, 2016 at 9:24 pm

    Malaysians are a lucky lot. Here in our multiracial community, we have exposure to all sorts of cuisine. Chinese, Indian, Malay.. you name it, we have it. Some of these ethnic cooking styles might be more bland or less spicy than others, but I have to say that all are equally interesting in their own way. In Malaysia i don’t miss my Nepalese food plenty of food to eat he he he

  19. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 16, 2016 at 7:29 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing mouthwatering accounts of these 25 mouthwatering dishes. It can be safely said that food unites Malaysians.Almost everyone of us grew up on assam laksa , nasi lemak, curry mee, the rojaks, roti canai, apam balik, ais kacang,cendol, satay ,char koay teow and the like. These are absolutely delicious, and a conversation among Malaysian friends , when they meet, normally starts with “Do you know where we can go for the best assam laksa in town..?”

    Malaysians , when they travel, will hunt down Malaysian or Peranakan restaurants so that they can have a go at these dishes and satisfy their insatiable appetite for them. The first thing they do, after their plane lands in KLIA, is to head for their favourite haunts selling their favourite local dishes.

    Fortunately, there are vegetarian restaurants that serve equally delicious versions of these dishes. These include Kechara Oasis Jaya 1 and Kechara Oasis Viva Home. Nice to enjoy our favourite dishes without having to be involved in any taking of life.

  20. Stella Cheang on Nov 16, 2016 at 5:26 pm

    Reading through the list of 25 Mouthwatering Dishes Of Malaysia is like reading out loud our very own personal favorite food list! I dare say many of us would not hesitate to admit to liking most if not all of the food. We are very lucky to be living in Malaysia where the food culture is a strong blend of cutlery varieties from the Indian, Chinese and Malay heritage. Many of these dishes are available in vegetarian options; and my top choice would be the curry mee at Kechara Oasis. The combination of thick rich curry soup and the soup-retaining-tofu-pok is just heavenly. Thank you Rinpoche for this mouth-watering article.

  21. Sarah Yap on Nov 16, 2016 at 4:12 am

    I would say that the food in Malaysia is truly unique, a result of the rich history of Malaysia being the main trading port in SEA for centuries. So many people of different cultures have visited this country in the past (and today), bring with them the best of their cultures, and what culture doesnt come or related with food lol. I suppose for this reason, Malaysian food has evolved in so many ways, and incredibly rich in flavor.

    Great sharing. I have always been proud of Malaysian cuisine, especially the ones made by Malacca Straits Born Chinese haha.

  22. Vivian Ong on Nov 16, 2016 at 1:13 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. The food listed are indeed very tasty. I do hope that the tasty will have it’s vegetarian version in the near future. This article also shows that Malaysia is a multiracial country and citizens get along very well with one another.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  23. Lin Mun on Nov 15, 2016 at 9:47 pm

    It is mouth watering reading this article. Some of my favourite food are in the list too 🙂

    Although the food are mostly non vegetarian but for those who are vegetarian, we have options too. Just go to the vegetarian restaurant listed above.

    I tried some of the restaurant mentioned. The taste and choices are good too. So we don’t have to kill in order to have delicious food. Stop suffering, killing and help the environment by being a vegetarian.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    Going on a pilgrimage to Lhasa , Tibet is worth . Lhasa was flocked with numerous monasteries and temples.It is world-famous for its sites of historical interest related to Buddhism, where hundred thousands of pilgrims and tourist go there yearly. The Tibetan have a long history in this region and very rich in culture. It is known for its splendid thousands of sacred lakes, and unique landscapes, with towering mountains.
    A beautiful and holy spiritual place for one to go , visiting holy places and connecting with the powerful energies. The Jokhang Monastery, Potala Palace, Norbulingka, Drepung Monastery, Sera Monastery and Ganden Monastery are some of the monasteries one should pay a visit. My wishes came true last year, travelling with friends on a pilgrimage to Lhasa, Tibet. Reading this post helps a lot for those planning to go .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Stella for this sharing.

    John Lautner was an American was one of the most important American architects of the twentieth century. Wow …..his career spanned fifty-five years and left an indelible mark on the built environment of Southern California. Looking at the picture at this post tells all. Very extra-ordinary house built on a very steep land surrounded by beautiful tree canopies. Did google more about this man who built this building. He had designed more than fifty significant unique structures in Southern California alone. Over the years he had gained increasing recognition since, with exhibitions, publications, a documentary, and did appeared in numerous films, commercials, and other media. His legacy remains vulnerable till today.

    Going on a pilgrimage visiting Gaden Mosnastery in Tibet, was indeed once a life experience. Well…. Going there with an oxygen tank will be tough when one experienced difficulties in breathing due to high attitude. Nor matter what happen our Lama Rinpoche made it there back in December 2008 and early January 2009 during winter. I am lucky visiting Gaden Monastery with friends back in May 2019 without any hitch with our lama blessing then. It’s a beautiful monastery and its so holy one could feel the powerful energies there.
    For Rinpoche its home coming after so long. Seeing the pictures of Rinpoche standing in front of the Golden Stupa where the holy remains of Lama Tsongkhapa’s blessed body/clothes/relics were remind me of the great moment there. If given the opportunity again , I wish to visit the monastery again in the near future.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you for the article sharing. Children learn a lot through activities that captures their attention and imaginations. They too have a strong desire to explore, discover through activities .

    It will be a great start for the kids to have dharma teaching activities at young age, because of their curiosity and desire to follows what they see and absorb the interest to learn from experiences.

    We are too busy with our daily worldly need but forgot to correct our merit for future life or our spiritual path. Some of us even too focus on the ritual and forgot about the meaning of the ritual.
    This book is so interesting and all chapter need to contemplate continuously to gain more meaning in this. Thank you very much for sharing with us.

    Like many other topics, the paranormal topic serves to counter our ideology that humans are the only beings ruling the world.All the best and congratulation.

    The discovery of ancient Buddhist Monastery dated from 700 AD is amazing. Found in an archaeological excavation site at Moghalmari, India ,artifacts figure of Buddha and Buddhist inscriptions. The archeologists do believe that those structural components recovered are parts of a Buddhist monastic site . A more details study of inscriptions on clay tablets even suggested the presence of two monasteries on the basis of the structural plan. With the discovery of the site and the deciphering of the inscriptions has pointed that Buddhism had spread to India in the 7th century ago.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Buddhism and Hinduism are similar because of their architecture is vibrant and colourful. They both have dharma and believe in reincarnation. The symbolism and structure of a Hindu temples were dated century ago. I love to see their ancient architecture of temples wall and so forth. Its simply amazing looking at its structures , colour . To the Hindu, the colours have a very deep significance, transcending purely decorative values in their religion and culture. Great to know there are so many beautiful ancient Hindus Temples around the world. Would love to visit these places as stated in this post in the near future . Looking at the Virupaksha Temple, Ranganathaswamy Temple, Brihadeeswarar Temple to name a few tell all about the beauty of it.

    Pilgrimage is traditionally done on foot and often takes weeks or months to complete.The pilgrimage is about much more then just the destination however, the journey itself is actually the most important part of the practice.

    Now with these knowledge of where some of the relics are located, I will be able to visit the temples holding such precious blessings.Thank you very much for sharing this good article.

    The most popular Buddhist nun cook Jeong Kwan, is a Seon Buddhist monk and chef of Korean cuisine. She lives in the Chunjinam Hermitage at the Baegyangsa temple in South Korea, where she cooks for fellow nuns and monks. She also cooks for visitors as well. Inspiring ….. she discovered her calling of spreading dharma through cooking adopting a vegetarian diet . What a way to start off. She credits her joining the temple and her achievements to her mother, that’s wonderful to remember her mother. Due to her popularity she was invited to appear on TV show and cooking all the way to New York. Inspiring read.

    Thank you Rinpoche for these profound teachings and sharing Pastor Henry’s update of his daily practice with us. A good example to follow . Death is something that no one could escape for sure. Its good to meditate on death nor matter how busy we are. The whole process of death and visualizing it is highly important for us . Reading this post will have us wake up , its time and never too late for anyone to practice.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
