Fresh, easy on the stomach and diverse are the best ways to describe food in Malaysia. Due to the unique blend of the Chinese, Malay and South Indians you can find a variety of cuisine that will tickle your taste buds. Other than the local cuisine, they have a number of Vietnamese, Thai, Italian, French and North Indian cuisines too. Out of the local cuisines, we bend the most towards their Chinese so do not completely go by what we say, but here’s our list.
