Malaysian Food Fair

Makcik making Kuih Kapit (Nyonya's crispy love letters biscuit)

I still remember clearly on last year's Masterchef when Poh, the runner-up decides on a theme for inventory test challenge. She chose Malaysian as a theme and everyone else was shocked and didn't have a clue what Malaysian cuisine is, I sill remember Julie the winner was panicking and she ended up cooking something more like Thai food.

Har-Mee aka Prawn Noodle

Malaysian cuisine is quite complex and kinda hard to define due to the diversity of it's multi-ethnic population of Malays, Chinese, Indian, Nyonya, Eurasian and Indigenous people of Borneo. Every ethnic group has their own type of food and almost every state has their own signature dish. If you happen to travel to Malaysia, you'll find yourself in the cross road of choosing what to sample, because there are just way too many food to choose from, the sky is the limit in when it comes to Malaysian food, best of all they only cost you around $1.50 for a meal.
