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? :)

Hello! We are Kat and Sue, and we are the founders of Makan Malaysia.
Having been friends since childhood, we decided to launch our business based on our joint love for cooking after we couldn't find the foods that we missed from home.
We grew up in Malaysia, but now live here in the UK - our mission is to share a little bit of the food and culture we love with all of you via recipes, supper clubs and market events.
