Malaysian Food

A staple dish in Malaysia is the simple, delicious “chicken rice”.

I try to order more exotically-named things, but they all turn out to be variations on “chicken rice”.

Nasi Lemak – chicken rice – plus dried fish, peanuts and egg

Nasi lemak sarawak

Nasi Goreng – chicken fried rice – with a fried egg on top

Lelapan ulam-ulaman – chicken and rice – with some veggies and sauce

Pandan chicken – chicken in a leaf and rice

Thankfully they don’t make you eat chicken and rice for breakfast. Breakfast is toast and coconut spread, plus an orange if it’s Chinese New Year.

  1. Totally agree. Every dish I had seemed to always include the bones too. After a while I treated myself to a chicken breast and mash potato at Kenny Rogers (bit like Nandos).
