Our favorite Malaysian Food in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia eating Peranakan cuisine (Nyonya Laksa 叻沙 喇沙) travel food video transcript:
Alright guys, for today's lunch we're at the Central Market here in Kuala Lumpur and we're going to be trying something that is called Peranakan Cuisine or Nyonya Cuisine.
And basically this is a combination of Chinese and Malay ingredients and cooking styles and it is the type of food that you'd be able to find in Malacca, Penang, Singapore or parts of Indonesia. It is really tasty.
Yeah, and since we're not going to be able to go to Malacca this time around. Awe!
We found a place that specializes in Nyonya Cuisine right here. Yes.
So happy guys and my mouth is watering. The food came out so quickly and the portions are huge and everything smells delicious.
Look at how big the Laksa (叻沙 - 喇沙) is.
Look at the size of this bowl. Like look at my little hands. Put your hand over top of it.
There is my little hand. It is like bigger than my hand.
This could feed like two or three people I think. But it is just mine.
Or just us. Just for me.
Okay, alright so let me give you a tour. This one is mine.
This is the Laksa (叻沙 - 喇沙) and it is a spicy coconut soup. It looks amazing and uh the main ingredients here we've got some chicken, we have shrimp and squid. We have these tofu puffs. We've got a hard boiled egg. Yeah. Lots of veggies. Oh, look at the size of that shrimp. My goodness. That is a big shrimp. Woah!
That is a nice and of course the rice noodles. Yeah, rice noodles somewhere. They're at the very bottom.
Yeah, and lots of veggies. We have green beans, some bean sprouts. This looks so so good. Oh my gosh.
Oh my gosh. Should I be squeezing this in to it? Am I going to burn myself. Let's try.
Try that.
Squeeze some lime. Lime is always good. Also, this is a good time to show off my art. My Henna art. You just had that done this morning. Yes. At the Batu Caves.
Let's dig right in. Let's start with the noodles. These are thick rice noodles. Those noodles look really good. Oh la lah. Oh man I'm horrible with noodles and chopsticks. I can do them independently but whenever we can find them it is a little disaster there.
And Sam's food looks just as appetizing guys. Yeah. So I'm trying something called Nyonya Chicken Rendang (马来西亚冷当咖喱鸡). Yeah. Let's take a look down here.
So you can see that it is chicken that is in a really nice coconut based gravy. Yeah. And it has got a lot of different spices. Chinese and Malay types of spices. Yeah.
So what I'm going to do is I just cut off a piece of the chicken here. I'm just going to take that like this with the gravy and pour this on top of the rice.
This is a coconut rice with coconut milk. Yeah. And it is blue.
And to drink we ordered a pot of tea from the Cameron Highlands. That is a really popular region here in Malaysia. The temperatures are cooler there so you can go for a nice visit.
Alright, dessert is here. I feel like I'm about to burst but it looks way too good to leave on the table. So we got the Sago Gula Melaka I believe. Sago to me it looks a lot like tapioca balls. Like miniature tapioca balls. And it is in a coconut cream and they also gave us palm sugar.
hat was amaze-balls. We just paid the bill. Tell us about it?
That was such a good meal and it cost hardly anything. 45 Ringgit.
45 Ringgit which at present time is 10 US dollars. So two mains, rice, a dessert and a big pot of tea. Yeah, like high quality tea for ten bucks. If you're around the Chinatown area go to Central Market. Go to the second level and you'll find this place. It is fantastic.
