Foods To Eat
Nasi Lemak is a well known rice dish, in and outside Asian countries. The reason why it has spread
around the world is simple: it tastes too good. It is considered as Malaysian national dish and, of
course, Kuala Lumpur has the common way of cooking it. One portion consists of coconut milk rice,
sambal, anchovies, peanuts and boiled or fried egg.
Some stalls also offer chicken or beef rending. Due to popular demand, many street stalls offer vegetarian variation of Nasi Lemak – instead of dried anchovies, this dish is made with vegetarian mock anchovies. The fact that this dish is affordable is wonderful, starting at RM4 per portion.
When you say satay you first think of the wooden sticks. Satay, also known as Sate, means a wooden
stick embellished with seasoned, skewered and grilled meat, vegetables or both. These little and cute
sticks are eaten with sauce. Satay may consist of sliced or diced tofu, chicken, goat, mutton, pork,
beef, fish, mushrooms and other vegetables.
Kuala Lumpur offers any type of satay you desire. And if you order meat satay you will receive juicy and chunky meat grill to perfection, not bulked out with fat and gristle in between the meat on the sticks. Satay is usually eaten with the peanut sauce that has the right amount of chili. Fresh fruit juices go very well with the satay!
Roti Canai, also known as Roti Cane is a type of Indian flatbread. Roti is translated as bread.
Europeans eat soft and fluffy bread while South Asian countries eat flat, light and crispy bread.
Roti Canai is made of fat, flour and water. The amazing characteristic of this dish is that it is best
eaten with fish or chicken curry or with lentil.
Children eat Roti Canai with delicious and semi-liquid condensed milk or with sugar. If you order a dish without rice or noodle then order Roti Canai as well! It should be eaten hot. And it is the most preferred breakfast dish in Kuala Lumpur.
