Malaysian Restaurants

Malaysian cuisine consists of cooking traditions and practices found in Malaysia and reflects the multi-ethnic makeup of its population. Malaysian Cuisine is defined as cuisine which has its origins in Malaysia but is heavily influenced by Chinese, Indian and Muslim cuisines.
The food could be one of the most attractive and enjoyable experiences in Malaysia. As the cuisine is majorly a combination of Malay, Chinese and Indian because of its geographical location; the variety of ingredients is very rich and the taste has become inevitably delicious.

Being a multicultural country, Malaysians have over the years adopted each other’s dishes to suit the taste buds of their own culture. For instance, Malaysians of Chinese descent have adapted the Indian curry and made it more dilute and less spicy to suit their taste.
