Malaysian Food

Malaysian cuisine is the ultimate fusion food.

Think big, bold flavours, complex spice combinations and, of course, The Sambal - a spicy chilli sauce that is served with just about every dish we have!

Malaysian cuisine is influenced by Chinese, Indian, Tamil, Portuguese, Dutch, Arab and Javanese flavours to name a few. Throughout history these communities generally began their migration to Malaysia for it’s geographical benefits and economic opportunities and, in return, they introduced ingredients such as cardamom and peanuts which were combined with local Malaysian grown produce to create the amazing flavours we have today!

We could go on and on about how great and unique Malaysian food is, but why not try it for yourself at one of our pop ups or ordered straight to your door? :)
