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.

    Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist, widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest and most influential physicists of all time. Famous for devising his theory of relativity, which revolutionized our understanding of space, time, gravity, and the universe .
    Albert Einstein did said that Buddhism is a philosophy, not a religion. Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future. If there is any religion that would cope with modern scientific needs, it would be Buddhism.
    He is often cited as one of the most influential scientists of the 20th century. His work continues to help astronomers study everything from gravitational waves to Mercury’s orbit. It is universal truth….as it covers both the natural and the spiritual and Buddhism has the answers. Interesting read. Reading through this post tell Einstein truly tell his love for Buddhism.

    Revisit this old post again listening to the songs by George Michael and Elton John. It was more than 30 years ago that George Michael and Elton John’s duet of “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me.” It’s known as one of the greatest pop duets of all time. Letting go is incredibly difficult. No matter what if we cling to worries about the future, or if we keep replaying the mistakes of the past we will never be happy. Let go and move on, if we want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present. Time doesn’t heal emotional pain, we need to learn how to let go for sure. Learning Dharma is the best choice to focus on living fully and meaningfully in the present. Do not quit or give up nor matter what happens in life.
    Thankyou Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The interesting biography of King Trisong Detsen, the second Dharma-king of Tibet, who truly established Buddhism in the Land of Snow . King Trisong Detsen, the 38th Yarlung King, had ruled over Tibet from 754 CE to 799 CE. He was the monarch responsible for the official adoption of Buddhism as the state religion of Tibet. It was due to his efforts that the great masters came from India and established Buddhism firmly in Tibet. He was also the king who invited nine royal physicians from neighbouring countries and laid the foundation of Tibetan medicine. Interesting read.

    The Great Buddha of Kamakura ,is a bronze statue of Amida Buddha, which stands on the grounds of Kotokuin Temple in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, a temple belonging to the Jodo Sect of Buddhism. Wow…. it has long been the second tallest bronze Buddha statue in Japan,with a height of 11.4 meters. It is one of Japan’s most fascinating historical landmarks where thousands of tourist from all over the world visited yearly. The statue is an iconic sight and most visited by tourist in the area. Merely looking at this huge statue tells all and a blessing indeed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing of a BIG Buddha Statue.

    The Dharma Bums were a U.S. garage band, formed in 1987 in Portland, Oregon, United States. The band had performed everywhere, and sing varies of subjects travelling around the world. The best is even Dharma songs as well revolving around Tibetan culture and religion. One of the band members is a long-time student of Tibetan Buddhism. Listening to the powerful Crystal Diamond Vajra Dakini, is a blessing.

    Interesting spiritual journey of Venerable Longlian one of the best-known students of a famous religious leader of modern China. Venerable Longlian was a talented child, at the age of four she could read, write well and was fluent in Chinese poetry. She even could recite scriptures and Buddha’s name and had visited frequently to templesqith her grandparents. Ven. Longlian studied everything from poetry to Chinese medicine under famous teachers at that time. Received teachings from Tibetan scholars as well and took initiations of the three main Gelugpa tantric deities, Vajrabhairava, Guhyasamaja and Chakrasamvara from Changkya Khutukhtu, who was one of the highest authorities in the Gelugpa school of Tibetan Buddhism. She did composed more than 1000 poems, through her years.

    In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, monastic vows are for life. But somehow Ci’en temple in Zhejiang province offers three-month course and part-time vows recently. Situated in the luxurious forest, Ci’en temple a small temple remains its charm with impressive landscape and Buddhist culture. The Buddhist temple decided to offer admission to civilians who wanted to experience a monk’s life, only to be overwhelmed with applicants. It’s a small temple , hence only those were interested in Buddhism were given a chance. Participants of the program will live as monks in the temple free of charge. They will learn about Buddhist culture, read its scriptures and will also perform all Buddhist activities as arranged. It’s a good training ground to live as a monk or nun to cultivate minds.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Shin for this sharing.

    Ditsa Monastery is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery of Gelug sect in the Huzhu County of Qinghai province. Interesting history of this Ditsa Monastery, been shared . How the reincarnated Lama’s body has shrunk into an incorruptible adamantine body. Nobody at the monastery has realised that the reincarnated Lama was a Great Bodhisattva who came to the world for all sentient beings, but as ordinary people. Its only after the Lama had passed away. Since then the monks in Ditsa Monastery became more serious in their practice and maintained pure moral discipline. Reading this post has gave me a better understanding of that Bodhisattvas come into the world with a variety of manifestations as explained by Rinpoche. Set as a reminder to devote ourselves to our teacher with sincerity and respect and everyone we encounter.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Meditation on death awareness is one of the oldest practices in all Buddhist traditions. Buddhist meditation practice of remembering that death can strike at anytime and anywhere. We should practice diligently and with urgency in every moment, even in the time it takes to draw one breath. Over the centuries Buddhism has evolved many different techniques such as mindfulness, loving-kindness and visualisation. Death awareness can serve as a real aid to practice, the importance of using every moment wisely, while we still have the time.
    Reading this article again to refresh , it’s a profound teachings one should read and understand it what is all about. All it take us 10 minutes of our time to do the practice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    n Buddhism, there are a variety of attitudes towards different forms of fasting . According to Buddhist tradition, Buddha’s holy form as the ‘Fasting Buddha’ serves as a reminder for us and inspiration of Buddha’s difficult journey to achieve enlightenment. Fasting Buddha Shakyamuni fasted for forty-nine days under the bodhi tree while subjecting his body to extreme conditions to achieve enlightenment. Although it is believed that the Buddha endured great agony because of prolonged fasting, he never gave up and had used the challenges to justify abandoning his spiritual pursuit. Interesting read. Looking at all those images of Fasting Buddha tells all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing ….a reminder all of us nor matter what happen , never give up in our spiritual journey.

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    5 yearss ago
    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

In 2021, we've encountered far too many challenges—Pandemic, months-long lockdown, landslide, and flood. We are proud to witness Malaysians helping one another as these agonies come sequentially. Looking back to 2021, Kechara Soup Kitchen has made significant progress, with more to come in 2022. Every year, we move a little closer to our vision. We are immensely thankful to have such dedicated teams of volunteers willing to go above and beyond for our clients. Not to mention our sponsors and donors; none of this would have been possible without you. Thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for helping the underprivileged to a better future. Have a blessed year ahead from our hearts to your hearts. #2022 #newyear #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment
