Yayaya....I've always loved seafood....aiyooo, Melayu style somemore...spicy and exciting (even though I can't take a lot of spicy food, but I still love them:)

It is difficult to get good Malay good. The fresh herbs and spices are really incredible. But I guess the delivery of these dishes is difficult and not really money-making. I used to eat in Desa Melawati where they have quite a good Northern Malay/Thai restaurant. Incredible smells and tastes. The pics are great!

Just had Malay food from warung for lunch today, KILAT including that toasted coconut (serunding), sambal sotong (my fave), black inked squids plus sambal chilli.

there's something ULTRA addictive about their sambal huh? every stall has its own concoction, its own followers, and its own detractors.

for ikan bakar, where to go?
Tasek Raban?

at the beaches especially , the seafood ikan bakar are fresh with variety ( eg near Malacca and Muar , quite famous also seberang perai , Pg). Their masam manis or 3 rasa is also quite impressive ! and their nasi campur spread in Kg Baru in KL are legendary

world windows
we will recommend you to take a walk to Kg Baru KL lunch time where some of the best nasi campur, nasi lemak and ikan bakar are found with super cheap prices.the humble ikan keli bakar is not to be missed, continue to see recommendations below

jencooks
aha your immaculate tastes are quite like us ( hehe)

we don't know where tasik raban is ! but you can find good malay warungs anywhere . the next time you are in Telum Batik , Lumut try Silaturahim ( except fridays , very near naval base ) for one of the best Malay food in the country, including multicolor addictive sambals. It will open your eyes

sc
perhaps you shud go Jln Bellamy KL ( near Istana ) evenings if you haven't been here

mimi
try Jaring in Sunway, PJ for the best Kelantanese styled nasi dagang nasi kerabu ,
our top vote for PJ
