Hopefully you’ve brought your appetite, because we’re about to take you on a mouthwatering trek through Malaysian cuisine. Pulling influences from Chinese and Indian food and from indigenous communities, Malaysian dining features a lot of rice, noodles, and bread, usually paired with poultry and fish. Tropical climates allow for exotic fruits, including cempedak, jackfruit, langsat, mangosteen, pitaya, and pomelo. Malaysians are often known to focus on kuih, or bite-sized dishes like curry puffs, or small deep-fried pies filled with curry and chicken or potatoes. If you’re dining in Malaysia, you may find yourself sipping a few air bandungs, enjoying some ayam goreng, nasi ulam, rendang, tempoyak, or mee rebus.
