Part 2 of my Malaysia trip. A foodies dream delves into what Malaysia is known for best, it's FOOD. Being a melting pot of three main cultures, Indian, Malay and Chinese. The intermingling of the cultures bring about a fantastic array of dishes, a lot of them unique to Malaysia.
We start off with an elaborate Chinese banquet at my sister in law's father's restaurant, where whole roast suckling pigs are made in house, and chicken soup that takes three days to prepare, were served. From there we travel through markets, food courts, restaurants, cafes, and road side stalls, to witness the precision, dexterity, speed, and knowing, that years and years of practice have made everyone into the master of their own craft.
Dishing out, Chinese donuts at break neck speed, serving steaming hot laksa every minute, rolling out perfect rolls of popiah time after time. Malaysia is a foodies heaven for sure. The most surprising thing for me this time around had to the savoury banana pancake cooked in banana leaf on Pangkor Island. A starchy blend of sweet and saltiness. dee-lish.
Working tirelessly these shopkeepers keep hundreds of their customers satisfied with their dishes, so they can send their children to good schools, universities, and even aboard.
Our trip brought us around Malaysia to Kuala Lumpur, Sekinchan, Pangkor Island, Kuching, and Mulu National Park.
