Muslim Street Food in MALAYSIA
What’S up and therefore welcomed another incident of Chopstick Travel, My
name’s Luke Martin and today we are in Kuala Lumpur, one of my all-time favorite metropolis. If you didn’t previously check out our serial, we just made in Penang make sure to thump the link down in the description box. We became three occurrences and we savor so much yummy street nutrient. So today, as I mentioned, we are in Kuala Lumpur. This is an incredible city.
We are going to be here for the coming few epoches, making a few episodes for you guys. So if you haven’t already make sure to stumble the buzzer icon and subscribe so that you are notified when we post a new video. So, let’s just get the day started:
So for breakfast this morning, we’ve come out to a situate announced dwelling: tea stalling. We have been here before in the past and we thought it was just too cool to pass up. So we decided to come back for breakfast.
This place serves all different kinds of different roti, different breakfasts, different teas, And today we have required up roti, banjir specials
So we’re gon na support you what that is once it arrives, So our breakfast has arrived and the road that he makes this is he applies a piece of dough that he thins out very, very thin, like paper thin and folds it a couple terms before he Fries it up until it’s kind of golden crispy And then he trounces it kind of like pounds it up to fluff it up and then they top it with all kinds of different things. So now we have a really slipshod looking dish of nutrient, but it appears utterly yummy. So you can see that roti, underneath It’s kind of been chopped up into little segments.
There’S some vegetables on top here and then we sought ours with soft-boiled eggs. So we’ve got two soft-boiled eggs.
And then a little bit of sambal sauce on the side that chili sauce, So let me break these eggs on top of this here Check that out. Oh man, Let’s get the other one! Those are some seriously milky eggs And I’m actually gon na grab a little of soy and spice to put on top of this
So positioned a little bit of soy sauce on top not too much Okay And then a little of white pepper, And then I’m just gon na mix this all up a little bit. Let’S try that, Oh man, This appears super super good, So a little bit spicy There it’s definitely a curry flavor going on there. The eggs are super creamy, But my favorite percentage is the texture of that roti.
It’S kind of chewy. That is good. It is a little bit spicy and that is super hearty for breakfast. Today, Let’s go in for one more bite, I’m going to try a little bit of this sambal sauce, Some sambal, some egg vegetables. This is a sloppy mess, but super savory So good-for-nothing goes better with this breakfast other than teh tarik, and this is awesome to have almost any time of day, but especially with breakfast, It’s nice and thick and hearty So I’m gon na try it Great taste a little sweet and it actually has a lot Of like spices in there infused in the tea And it’s just a great direction to start the day,
I love it.
They truly endanger on the presentation with this dish, but that’s okay with me, because the spices are exceptional. I genuinely adoration how that roti, just soaks up all the spices of that curry and then that egg as well, And it’s a nice little savory bowl if you’re into having savory things for breakfast. This is probably your cup of tea. Alright, so we have finished off at Mansion: Tea Stall, We are quite full. We are on our direction to KL Forest Eco Park to check out this really cool suspension, aqueduct and time walk around the park and experience the knockout of KL
So we are only call the Grab gondola We’re waiting for it to show up now and we will be checking in once we get to the park.
So for those of you who don’t know Grab car is basically the Uber of Malaysia. We only took one to the Eco Park as Sabrina mentioned, and we’ve never been here before, but we’re right at the base of KL tower and as she mentioned, there is a really cool, canopy suspension connection that we’re gon na go check out right now. So this situate is really cool. It’S mostly one beings exclusion aqueduct and it’s connected by different fortress. So you get to walk along this forest you’re really high up you’re up in the canopy, and best of all this locate is free Finished off with our canopy walk here at the KL Eco Park.
That was really cool. It’S merely about a 30 minute round-trip. So it’s not very long, but that’s. Okay.
It’S worth it.
I think you should definitely come out here So now we are going to head to get some lunch. So we are at lunch now, and this is a really popular with the locals restaurant for grilled fish or ikan bakar. We are outside of the city center, so this is a real neighbourhood recognise and we’ve got a nice spread of foods And, of course, the prime piece de resistance is this grilled fish? So it’s actually grilled in this banana leaf. You can see here.
They’Ve got a big grill out front full of the fish. All wrapped up in the banana leaves to kind of contain all those liquids.
And I’m gon na rend back the bark I’ve already kind of tore it open to let it cool down a little bit. You can see all that really delicious. Looking flesh on the inside So back here.
We’Ve too got a plate of rice and we’ve got a sauce, and this is like a sauce of chili. I insure some onions in there. Some green chilies There’s, probably some shrimp glue, some lime liquid All kinds of different things: We’ve also get this little soup back here, which is just a exceedingly plain seeming soup, with some lettuce onions And then a neat liquor.
I think this is an orange juice, So let me go in for a piece of the fish I’M gon na move this part and go for some of that white stuff and a little of this and then certainly get ta dip it in that sauce as well Get a delightful plunge and then merely try that first by itself, without the rice Mm Mmm That is definitely some fresh fish and you can taste that super super smoky I like that sauce, It’s a little bit sour and a little bit spicy more, But there is like a ton of bones in there little small-scale bones. You could probably eat them, But when there’s that countless, I don’t know if you should immerse a entire mouthful of bones.
Let me go in for another pierce now, Peel back a little bit more skin, And I think if I get some of this substance down now, there probably is less bones Some sauce and some rice, this time Eat it with little bit of rice. Let’S try that Mm Okay, Much left bones in there All right! I don’t think I got any bones. Actually,
And that exits really nicely with the rice. This is really good.
It’S –! You definitely need this sauce, because the sauce actually brings together all those flavors, The smoky spicy and sour and then with a little bit of rice to just hold everything together, That’s good! Where there’s fish there’s usually a “cat-o-nine-tail” or two or I don’t know, How many Well, I have two around me, but there are –. I can see one a marry: kittens There’s, probably like eight felines now, just like nibbling on this substance that precipitates in the grind.
So they’re cleaning up You get t he perfect little bite That i really really good.
Then shoot it with this orange juice, there’s a little bit of lime in here too, Oh man Super refreshing, but channel too sweet. There is too much sugar Malaysians, really like their booze sweetened, but it’s okay. Probably prescribe it with less carbohydrate, I probably should have This meal’s really good Finished off with lunch. That was really good. The fish was really fresh and delicious.
That restaurant was various kinds of hard-bitten as a native to lineup. What did you think Uh yeah? It was –. I don’t know where you’re supposed to have actually sought The hours online say something completely different, because now they’re completely shut down Yeah and it was supposed to be open for another few hours, so we’ve just kind of been sitting waiting for them to bring over our nutrient.
We tried to order, So maybe it’s a little tough for foreigners, but the meat is very good, so it is worth it if you do want to come out here and get some really gone, ikan bakar.
So now we’re heading to get some dessert. So for our dessert, we have come to the Chow Kit area. Chow Kit is famous for the market and we’re actually gon na go check that out right after we have our dessert, And this is something I’ve never had before. I read about it online and I exactly thought I needed to try it. This is durian cendol
So mixing two of my favorite things: Durian and the far-famed Malaysian dessert cendol, So here we have it, It is absolutely beautiful.
Looking So you can see, well a bowl of cendol. Here i am those little green pandan noodles underneath Lots of shaved frost – It’s all swimming like inundated. Actually in coconut milk, This form has some corn, So you can see some kind of like creamed corn and then, of course, the big big chunk of durian, Some fresh durian I can reek it, It reeks actually potent a little fermented almost and this just inspects too good. So let’s try it out. I’M not really sure how you’re supposed to eat this, so I’m actually just gon na take a bite of durian and then chase it with some of the cendol
Oh yum, Oh man, Wow, That is a unique combination, to say the least.
What I don’t know how much I like it. So that durian is quite potent It’s very kind of stinky. You could savor that fermented flavor in your lip, The cendol is nice and like milky from that coconut milk, very refreshing. I don’t know how I feel about this, though, because I really like both those things, but you are familiar with with some other things in life, you precisely shouldn’t mingle the two together and this may be one for me. I don’t know it kind of is weird
The durian is overpowering the cendol, It’s kind of like seeped into the coconut milk flavor, but I don’t know – Maybe it’s just not my thing.
It is very popular. This residence is pretty jam-pack with parties. And you can see, there’s just big chunks of durian in there It’s quite a unique dish. Let me go over one more bite to it Mm. Oh, I do love durian, It’S kind of weird It plays with my spirit because I see I’m eating simply durian and then I chase it with this.
Like sweet, creamy, cendol Yeah, I don’t know, Finished off with dessert. I mull Sabrina enjoyed it a little bit more than I did. I probably would opt just for the durian next time. So now we are going to head to the Chow Kit market. This is just like one of the biggest markets.
I think here in Kuala Lumpur And exactly a really cool place, to stroll around check out all the fresh fruits and veggies I affection this marketplace. There is always so much to see every time we come here.
It’S actually thrilling, There’s always different ingredients. You know Throughout the year they’re thriving different things and there’s all kinds of things. I can’t even recognize.
All various kinds of strange fresh fruits and vegetables – It’s just a really nice place to stroll through Remember the first time we just came here, Yeah, I recollect, being truly terrified. There was a lot of like different smells and swine being murderer in front of you. So it was a little bit of a culture shock at first, but now it’s kind of you know you get used to this sort of thing Yeah, It’s traditional! What do “youre thinking about” this substance right here? Does it gross you out anymore?
No not really Finished off with our safarus of the advocate sell. That sit is really cool If you’re a little bit squeamish. Maybe it’s not the place for you. It is very traditional. It’S very real, you know seeing the big hanging things of beef and all the fish getting chopped up.
So perhaps if that’s not your thing don’t go there, But anyway we are still a little bit full from our dessert and lunch. So I think that we’re going to take a little bit of a breach before we head out for dinner tonight. It is a rainy night here in KL And we are back out to the same area actually that we just ate that ikan bakar for lunch to have some satay
We are going to a satay-only restaurant, So, let’s go there right now, The restaurant we are at is called Satay, Zainah Ismail, And this is purely a saute diner. They have one of the longest charcoal grills I’ve ever seen for prepare the satays Just hundreds of the sticks on there at once all over charcoal, of course and they’re, abusing the traditional bamboo devotee to cook those. So we ill up 10 chickens and 10 beef.
We are waiting for those to arrive, but we also order up tea and you can see at the bottom now. There is just a ton of abbreviated milk, so I’m going to give that a nice little swirl and mingle it in Oh yeah. Wow, that’s really light-colored and not very sweet, Nice and creamy I’m ready to eat the satay. Our satay has arrived. We have only two different kinds: the chicken and the beef – and I can smell these already.
They reek super super smoky and you can see. We’Ve got a couple interesting thing on the plate, So we have the ketupat, which is a kind of rice cake that was wrapped up in some buds and then steamed And then we’ve also came, of course, some fresh onions and raw cucumbers And just check these out. The beef gazes so like glistening-ly, beautiful Oily And then you can see all those little kind of crispy flakes on the end And then over here we’ve got our chicken and it looks like this has been chafed in some spices, Maybe a little bit of chili, Maybe a little bit of turmeric as well, Because it’s got various kinds of a nice orange colouring I precisely look at that kind of burnt charcoal parts there. This reeks just so ridiculously good. My mouth is watering And, of course, we have also been dished it with a nice –.
I like how this lieu has sufficed it with a huge bowl of sauce.
So this is like a peanut spicy chili oil satay sauce So, let’s just go in now: I’m gon na go for this chicken one right here and I’m just gon na make sure that this gets wholly suffocated in that sauce Check that out. Oh man That gapes so good. Let’S try this When you cook it low-grade and sluggish over those charcoals It simply tenderizes that meat is so incredibly well It merely imparts it with the flavor of that charcoal. It is super smoky super tender, but then it has those little crunchy burnt flakes at the end.
I’M gon na chase it with a little piece of this ketupat. The rice
Try to draw a piece off at the end there: Okay, let’s try that It’s very grassland, but very good. Oh man, That is such a good burn. Wow Next up is the beef, and these precisely search super juicy. It looks like they’ve already been extinguished in maybe a little bit of that satay sauce And once again, I’m going to completely dunk it in this sauce.
This sauce was too good. You can be found in the little bits of peanut in there And it’s not awfully spicy, there’s just a little hint of chili in there. Let’S try it out That is so juicy That is prodigious. This is instantly the best satay I have ever had For sure By a landslide. A batch of satay you get is just kind of by a street vendor on the side of the road.
This is a dedicated restaurant. They know what they’re doing They’re serving tons of hungry purchasers Chase that with some cucumber, Oh man, That is so tasty [, Sabrina ], We have finished off devouring our satay for the nighttime and it was amazing
[ Luke] Yeah what an experience That place is probably, in my view, the best thing we’ve eat this trip to Malaysia so far And the restaurant owneds are super super friendly. What did you think? That was super good. I thought it was awesome.
I mean we’ve never had satay that had such vast globs of meat on the persist, And it was really juicy Yes, super juicy and the sauce was super flavorful Really certainly smoky and replenishing because generally we can eat ten satay , no problem, But like we’re pretty full after eating simply ten each I couldn’t eat anymore. I couldn’t eat anymore. I must be given to get him to finish them. Yeah, So that was an awesome way to end the day.
