Malaysia. Such a food paradise. It is something that every tourists coming here would agree without any doubts, moreover a Malaysian like me. I’m proud of it. There are A LOT OF FOOD here, I mean SO APPETIZING AND IRRESISTABLE FOOD. To those coming here who are currently on a low-carb run, behold. If you’re planning to skip carbs, you’ll feel somewhat guilty…………..
1. Nasi lemak
Calories: 389.5 Carbs: 58.2g
Considered as the nation’s most popular dish, I myself love it. It is usually eaten during breakfast, but nowadays people eat it anytime especially at night, topping it off with ayam goreng berempah (fried chicken coated with several type of spices). Maybe you would want to try it, but I don’t think it is good for your health to eat it every single day. I myself don’t.
2. Roti canai with teh tarik
Calories: 301.5 (roti canai) 97.7 (teh tarik) Carbs: 45.5g (roti canai) 19.1 (teh tarik)
Besides nasi lemak, Malaysians enjoy having this as our breakfast or even worst, as midnight snacks. Quite similar to paratha eaten by people in India, it successfully establish itself as one of the must-try-food in Malaysia. Served with dhal curry, you will find your plate totally clean after 5 minutes. Trust me, it tastes deadly good and in a blink of eye, you just realized that you have just finished it up really quick. And one more thing, throw away those fork and spoons. Enjoy it the Malaysian way, using your bare hands!
Meanwhile, teh tarik literally means “pulled tea”. Funny, isn’t it? The tea and the milk are poured through the air between two cups, producing such frothy and rich texture. Something that looks so easy to be done but it is not! And beware of those glucose, they taste perfect indeed but don’t let them kill you!
3. Mee goreng mamak
Calories: 281 Carbs: 40.6g
Prepared with the exact amount of spice and less oil and lots of egg, mee goreng mamak is another option in mamak stalls/restaurants besides roti canai. Completely different than other fried mees in town, it is usually a typical meal besides rice in Malaysia.
Man, it’s so tempting to write about food at times like this (it’s already 0057 hrs!). Nevertheless, I could never forget how delicious Malaysian food are. So, have you ever travelled to Malaysia? What’s your most favourite delicacies here? Feel free to comment below!
