In and out of town there are food hawkers or little shacks where wonderful food such as Sate is offered and a very reasonable price.
This is something now found in my country except at festivals or street fairs and then it's not on an every day basis. That is one of the reasons I bring it to your attention. Try this food when in Malaysia. Hot, Fresh and very delicious. There isn't a worry about the quality of the food here because there is a fast turn over and the cooking is done before your eyes
Favorite Dish: Sate! Plump pieces of chicken cooked on a wooden skewer and served with a delicious, spicey peanut sauce
Fruit Stands along the road are quite common in Malaysia. More so here than in my own country. We do have these fruit stands out in the county areas but not in the city because of all the laws and rules required to have them.
These are a good place to stop for an iInexpensive light meal, delicious and nutritious. Fruit stands are found along the road and offer the freshest and sometimes most exotic choices. Try the durian or any other that may be unfamiliar to you. It can be a wonderful experience and refreshing in the hot, humid environment.
Favorite Dish: Any kind of fresh fruit you like or anything you'd like to try for the first time.
A Chinese Restaurant with a large, unremarkable dining room. The food and service was excellent! Worth the trip up the mountain!
We were staying at the resort and found this restaurant hidden in the jungle landscape. At first it didn't look like the type of place I'd choose, but in time the simplistic decor blended with the jungle views through the many windows and it was quite a relaxing place. Of course, we were the only patrons at the time.
Favorite Dish: The food was absolutely delicious. Fresh and well seasoned, in fact perfectly blended flavors that are mouth watering and a great surprise for this modest resort.
We had the Talapia, Vegetables in sauce, Kung Poa Chicken, Mushrooms in sauce, spring chicken and rice to share and were very happy with our selections.
The streetfood in Malaysia is really good.
Mabye it's not quite as famed as the streetfood in Thailand, but i prefer Malasia for streetfood cause the variety here is much greater due to the ethnic variety in Malaysia.
You have the chinese, the indians and the malays as the main ethnich groups, but there are several other smaller groups and that means you have a lot of different food to chose from when buying from the street vendors, especially if you are in one of the bigger towns where it's not one ethnic group dominating the food scene.
Many people are a little worried about eating from street stalls because of the hygene, but i have never had a serious stoch problem after eating streetfood in Malaysia and i have eaten there hundreds of times over the years.
The good thing about streetfood is that it's cooked freshly in front of you so it has not been lying around in warmish temperature for a couple of hours after being cooked.
Old town, white coffee is a malaysian chain of coffee shops that you find pretty much all over the country as they have close to 200 outlets.
this is both a coffee shop and restaurant as they have a pretty nice menu too if you want to eat.
The setup is a little Starbucks like, but it has it's own touch and it's own malaysian coffee which is different from most western coffees but really good if you ask me.
They always offer free wifi at their coffee shops so you see many students and business people sitting there with their coffee.
It's one of my favorite places to hang out when in Malaysia and it's a good and cheap alternative to Starbucks and coffeebean who tend to be more expensive than old town white coffee.
Favorite Dish: I love their coffee, aswell as thei orange fizzy.
We had a wonderful night at this restaurant. The entire experience was great from the decor to the delicious food. This is definitely the place when you want to splash out. Great food.
Favorite Dish: Indian lamb was absolutely to die for!!!
Most of the Chinese restaurants and some of the Kopitian (coffee shop), street vendors or hawker food court.
Favorite Dish: Dai Bao means a big steamed bun with a lot of treasure-ingredients in it. You can get it from most of the Chinese Restaurants and some of the Kopitian (coffee shop), street vendors or hawker food court. When you cut open the Dai Bao, you find a lot of treasure: a piece of chicken, a piece of Chinese sausage, a piece of shiitake mushroom, 1/8 hard boiled egg with some chopped fried mang kuang (yam bean). The Chinese usually have it for breakfast or dinner, and even during tea time. It's very filling and it costs only RM3.00-RM2.00 depends on which region you buy, it is more expensive in Kuala Lumpur than in Taiping.
Forget ambiance, were here for the food, and we truly loved it. Delicious, safe, and most important its cheap. With just 5 ringgit, we had a very sumptuous breakfast enough to get us going throughout the day.
Favorite Dish: Lemon Chicken was superb.
To promote and encourage the preservation of our traditional Malaysian foods in all their original and evolved forms, and to revive, continue or introduce the indigenous ingredients where they have been lost in whatever way including change in taste or through loss of biodiversity.
Favorite Dish: Lots of Choices
"Chorrascaria" means barbecue in Portuguese. This wonderful little restaurant on one of Bukit Bintang's famed "eat streets," has a clean, crisp and pleasant atmosphere. Being in the heart of Muslim Malaysia, you won't find any pork here, but don't despair...
Chicken, beef, lamb, sausages...all marinated in Bom Brazil's famous 30 year old recipes, are a diverse offering that is sure to get your juices flowing.
No menu is offered. You simply sit at your table, perhaps visit the buffet for some delicious vegatables, pasta, or salads, return to your table and order your drink, and then wait for the passador (meat waiter) to come around.
The salad bar is a fixed price and includes many Brazilian rice, pasta and vegetable dishes that will certainly add to your experience. There are small cards on your table, for convenience, to signal the passadors whether you want to be offered a new skewer of meat (green side of card) or the red side, which says, "Nao obrigado," or "No, thank you."
The skewered meats that the passadors offer, are hot off the grill, dripping with delectable juices. Just pick up your tongs and catch the meat as your passador slices it off for you.
Favorite Dish: Everything here is delicious. It's too difficult to pick out any one, particular meat. The waitress will bring out several small sauce dishes, to dip your meat in, which come in the following flavors: Mint, BBQ, vinagrette and chili sauce.
I sampled them all and ended up having to walk it off through the streets of Bukit Bintang. Gluttony does have its advantages.
After weeks of being in the jungle, I was looking forward for some stylish 'fine dining' in KL. One of the most exciting prospects is Shook! - a modern, exciting restaurant which boasts a fusion between the east and the west ... Japanese, Chinese, Italian and Western Grill - and the food is prepared in front of your eyes! Yes ... there are 4 open kitchens showing off the chefs preparing the delicious food.
The choice of food is overwhelming - the menu looked like a bible! Everything is served in style, the staff are really nice and the food is supreme.
And yes, the wine list is staggering as well, both in the wealth of choice as well as the prices - all alcohol is very expensive in Malaysia so imagine the price of some fine wine ...
"Mamak" is actually from the Sanskrit for "uncle" but in Malaysia, it refers to an Indian person who has become a Muslim. Mamak stalls, then are little off-the-beaten-path places to eat, that are run by Indian Muslims.
The typical fare at mamak stalls usually involve fried rice or fried noodles, roti canai (a delicious pancake-type bread served with curry or dhal), and teh tarik. Teh tarik (literally "pulled tea" is made from mixing hot black tea, sugar and sweetened condensed milk, and then pouring it back and forth from increasingly-spread arms. The appearance is that they are "pulling" the tea.
Mamak stall prices are by nature very cheap, so go and enjoy some quality typical Malaysian food!
Favorite Dish: Roti canai, teh tarik and maggi goreng. Maggi goreng is fried instant noodles with lots of added flavor. A fresh small lime on the side makes for a great added flavor as you squirt it over your unhealthy yet tasty noodles.

The copy of Lonely Planet I had when I was in Kota Baharu did not indicate the 3 fastfood restaurants - namely, KFC, MacDonalds and A & W. But I found them right in the City Centre, all within near walking distance from bus station or GIANT Supermarket. For those who crave for any of these 3 foods, do look out for them.
