Food Must Try
Nasi lemak is a Malay fragrant rice dish cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaf. It is commonly found in Malaysia, where it is considered the national dish; it is also popular in neighbouring areas such as Singapore; Brunei, and Southern Thailand.
Roti canai itself is a main dish. It’s a soft, yet flaky flatbread that is served warm and with different sauces. From our experience, the sauces that are served alongside roti canai were dhal, which is a lentil curry, a spicy red curry and sometimes a plain yogurt.
