MALAYSIA’S NATIONAL DISH
Nasi Lemak is Malaysia’s defacto national dish. Rice, a Malaysian staple, is cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaf which gives it both taste and fragrance. It is accompanied by sambal, a spicy sauce made from chili and shrimp paste.
The coconut rice, sambal, and its condiment (eggs, peanuts, anchovies, and cucumber) is then wrapped with banana leaf into a pyramids, ready for sale and easy takeaway. Hungry Malaysians will top it up with a side of meat, the most popular being fried chicken.
You’ll see this dish everywhere – at the market, hawker stalls, coffee shop, or restaurants. Malaysian have it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It’s indeed one of Malaysian most beloved food. We dare say this: you haven’t eaten Nasi Lemak, you’ve never been to Malaysia!
